Question about Sony RDR-VX515 DVD Recorder/VCR

Open Question

We have a Sony RDR-VX515. Time after time when we put in DVD movies (even brand new ones) the machine will flash Load, Load, Load for a minute or two. Then on the TV screen we will get the cannot play error message. Sometimes then you can't get the compartment to open so that you can retrieve your DVD.There are times that if you keep trying it will finally accept it but in most cases, it will not. It is frustrating. We have used this very little so it is not worn out but this has been an ongoing problem. I recently bought an entire season of "Grey's Anatomy" and it won't play a single DVD from the set.

Unfortunately you can't do that in Sony players - the region is hard-coded in the firmware and it can't be removed. Even if you manage to obtain a firmware for region 4 all you will obtain is a complete switch from whatever region you're in now to region 4.

I have hundreds of very valuable and irreplaceable DVDs made on this machine which although "finalized" will only play on this machine and on no other. The machine is now broken- they say the DVD...


You could buy one on E-Bay. Click on the link below, but if you really finalized the DVDs, they should play on other components.
The Sony like yours below is $149.95 and you can buy it now, not bid on it as normally done on e-bay.
Last resort you can take them to a video transfer service, so all is not lost.

I'm stuck in Prggressive Mode on my RDR-VX515


pressing and holding the PAUSE button on the front of the DVD player for 5 seconds. (this is the one that worked for me) Hurray!

pressing the PROGRESSIVE button on the front of the DVD player or P.SCAN button on the remote control to disable the progressive signal.
power off the DVD player and press 369 using the number buttons on the remote control, then power back on the DVD player.
moving the VIDEO OUT switch on the back of the DVD player to the INTERLACED position.
