Sony RDR VX555 DVD/VHS Sony RMT D240A REMOTE CONTROLLER REMOTE WILL NOT INTERACT WITH VX555

Posted by on

  • ramonnedna Oct 04, 2010

    1. POWER ON, FRONT PANEL, GIVES 'SONY DVD' BRIEFLY, THEN SETS TO BLANK TIME MODE WITH ~ 4 LOWER CASE BARS, THEN A BLUE/PURPLE LIGHT TURNS ON IN THE DISPLAY.



    TRIED THE HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON FOR OVER TEN SECONDS. NOTHING.



    2. NO INTERACTION USING THE REMOTE.



    I HAVE SOME FORMER SOLUTIONS SHOW UP ON FIXYA FROM A SIMILIAR PROBLEM ABOUT 8 MONTHS AGO. WE GOT IT WORKING USING 'ENTER' AND A NUMBER '1' OR '3'



    NONE OF THAT WORKS RIGHT NOW.



    3. QUESTION: THE REMOTE RMT-D240A HAS A TV SECTION. I TRIED HAVING IT CONTROL MY

    SONY TV. NOTHING.



    BUT, TELL ME WHAT I WOULD NEED TO DO TO HAVE THE REMOTE CONTROL THE TV. THIS WOULD LET US KNOW IF THE REMOTE IS WORKING.



    YES, CHANGED BATTERIES SEVERAL TIMES. THERE IS A CLEAR LIGHT BULB AT THE TOP OF THE REMOTE. WILL IT DO ANYTHING TO INDICATE WHETHER THE REMOTE IS WORKING?

And that is the remote that came with the unit? That is a very bad sign... I assume you've tried a new battery / batteries for the remote? It is the IR receiver on the DVD player or the actual remote that has failed. Do you have a universal remote you can try to use with the player? It is going to be impossible to determine which has failed without some kind of replacement remote that we know works, to test with.

    Oh wow that sounds like a whole different issue altogether. I was thinking it powered on normally using the power button, but if it does not then it is actually the DVD player that has failed in general, and the remote is probably fine. If you can't get the dvd to power on using the button then you are going to just want to look into replacing this unit, it is cost prohibitive to try and repair a problem as major as that.



    Please confirm, but this definitely sounds like what you just described.

Download the user manual for Sony RMT-V501A remote control, from nt. It will have all details, including setup codes. If there is setup code ofr your RDR VX555, you can synchronise the remote with your device. If there is no setup codes, it can't.

VHS to DVD dubbing


Press the 'DVD' button then 'Input' button at the top of the remote until 'Line1' or 'Line2' input is selected. I messed with this for quite a while until I finally looked at Sony's web site which states this.
