Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I purchased a second Sony RDR-VX525 Video Cassette Recorder/DVD Recorder for our bedroom to replace a failing Zenith VCR recorder/player. I began using the Sony VHS/DVD recorder to transfer our movies (already on one VHS tape) and all of our other family videos. Everything went excellent. Next for my Mother-in law's 95th birthday, our daughters worked to make a nice video of the family from her early years to the present. We decided to try to play it over and over as background for the party, which I did. I got the machine to copy the ten minute DVD for thirty-six times. When I finished, I noticed that on the diaplay was "DVD 1." I do not know how that happened, nor can I find anything as to how to get the machine back to "DVD 3." When I select on the hand held control DVD, then I am to select System Menu, all I get is a display with info bars at the top and bottom of the screen. and about all that I can do is turn the player off. I cannot watch or play any DVD's or VHS tapes. Please help me.

Hello the
Kindly plug out the power for the dvd from the power wall socket and leave it unplug for about two to three days at the end of the decided time plug it in back and it should return to normal after reseting itself it does not restore to normal kindly have a tech look at your dvd player.as the problem is more technical you could be having a microchip failure

good luck

This is a known issue that happens with these players

To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue, take the remote for that recorder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment. Then hold down the enter key and the number of the mode its stuck in ie if its stuck in dvd-1 mode hold down the enter key and then the 1 key. hold both buttons together for 3 seconds. After this go back into the room and try it or if you unplugged the player, then replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again

here is an example

<stuck in dvd-1mode> get away from player different room so it can not sence remote. Hold down enter and 1 button for 3 seconds and then try it
if its stuck in dvd-2 mode dold down enter and the number 2 button together for 3 secondsd and try it. The idea is you have to be far away from the recorder so it dosent recieve any inputs from the remote while doing this.

Let me know if you are still having problems with this and I would be glad to help you.

thanks
