Re: buttons stoped working
I would first try removing the battery from the camera for awhile this often resets the camera, and if this doesn't work there is a manual reset under the setup menu but if your having problems with your buttons you might not be able select that options. If you are still within your return/exchange period with the retailer you could exchange the camera for a new one, and if your not you probably have a manufacturers warranty on the camera.

it maybe that the relay in the alarm module for the starting function has stopped working. your best bet would be an alarm shop where they can test the connection for function. have seen this issue several times. Does the engine turn over at all? if it does then the time for cranking may need to be adjusted.
The 3750 won't let you control the telephone record jack. The only way you can get a mic to work using the Tel Rec jack is by pressing and holding the 'Tel Rec' button for about 1 second. But this isn't compatible with the hands-free operation.
If you're looking to do hands-free recording, it uses the built-in conference mic. Press and hold the 'Conf Rec' button for about a second and it should start recording. This built-in mic is located on the right-hand side of the machine near the front by the headset jack.
If you want to control the machine via a foot control while in Conference Record mode, you'll have to change the 'Foot Control Dictate' setting in the menu. Here's how:
1) Press and hold the 'Erase' & 'Search' buttons for about 5 seconds until the menu appears.
2) Scroll through the options until you get to 'Foot Control Dictate' and set this to 'Yes'.
3) Press 'Stop' to exit the menu.
4) Press the 'Conf Rec' button to enter record mode.
Now you should be able to control the start/stop of the record function via the foot control.
An easier way to do this is to just press the right-hand button on the round wheel surrounding the set button. This allows you to scroll through all the various record modes: Snapshot, Bestshot, Video, & Microphone.
I had the same problem. I got some electronic contact cleaner at Frys Electronics and sprayed a bit around the button, so that a little got inside. The button started working again instantly. If yu don't have contact cleaner you could first try a drop of denatured alcohol... I don't think it's as likely to work, but I also don't think it will hurt anything.

VHS-DVD Recorder (DMR-ES40V), Forgotten Ratings Password From the Owners manual: Open tray, Keep Pressing Rec and Play/X 1.3 buttons on the remote for 5 or more seconds. Another servicer found resetting to defaults worked well. (VCR>DVD Dub) + (Open/Close) + (DVD Rec)
I had a similar problem where slowly specific buttons stop working. Moisture was getting into the control board and slowly killing buttons. I replaced the control board and that worked for another year, until the buttons began dying again.
For now, there are other ways to start the machine, but you just have to let time expire to stop it. It is probably a control board issue.
