Question about Sony RDR-VX500 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

Sony RDR-VX500 DVD/VCR Combo is stuck in Mode 1 no matter what I do on the remote or the unit itself. A red light that looks like a clock is flashing on the bottom left of the display ICON's also. Not sure what I did but I sure could use some help here. Thanks

I turn the unit on itseems to get stuck in the "load" mode. It just keeps flashing "load" and I can get it to open so I can remove the DVD thats in the tray.


The player is broken. If it's new, return it. Otherwise throw it out and get a new one. Cost more to try to have it fixed on warranty than to just replace it.

How to close DVD file after recording on Sony RDR-VX500


Sorry David you'll need to get a replacement remote. Not the answer you probably want but that's the only way you're likely to close the sessions, unless someone has written some software that can do this. I had a problem with my funai with unclosed sessions and I had remote but laser needed adjusting

Failure to record on -R DVDs


DVD-Rs do work with the RDR-VX500 ...... I had not recorded on mine for a few months after I ran out of the last batch ....... then I tried recording on the newer Sony DVD-Rs I had ...... would not record on DVD-R ..... turns out the instructions say the recorder will not work with any DVDs faster than 8x .... It looks like it's recording but it doesn't ..... then I noticed the newer DVDs were 16x ...... found an old 8x and tried it and it works fine ..... turns out the unit won't record slower on a 16x, it just won't record at all ...... get 8x and you'll be ok

DVD recorder has stopped recording


Make sure the DVD-R is 8x or SLOWER. They are difficult to find these days. The unit will not not give any specific warning when a faster disc is used, it just doesn't work. The burner is simply an IDE drive, so it is upgradeable, should you wish to risk that route.
