Question about Sony RDR-HXD860 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

Open Question

Hiya, I have an RDR-HXD890 which has lost all channels. Tried to replace them but the initial set-up finds nothing and invites me to try again. When it first happened all channels carried the "channel is unavailable" message, now after having tried to replace channels I get the generic PR 1 come up, with no station there. I looked on the Sony site and they said they had issued a software update to solve a problem where channels would get lost. So I installed the fresh update successfully but same result, no channels found. Sony now say the problem they were correcting wasn't the same and the fault is with the unit. Bought 15 months ago so out of guarantee in the UK... any ideas? Thanks David

SOURCE: cannot play region 1 dvds on my sony rdr-hxd890.

Some players are harder than others to do this but you may want to try here or here
Comments:
Toshiba's and JVC's are the harder ones to do

I use a Phillips myself as it is not only cheaper but has much more going for it than many of the higher end units. i throw anything at it and it just plays

The older the unit that harder it is to do the region free thing with.
I let my EX have the panasonic (big grin)

If you cant find a fix then look at the codes available for cheaper brands and how easy it is to do it before you purchase one.

Just a thought.

Hi and welcome to FixYa

Initially, postback the model number of the Comcast digital adapter and the TV.

Offhand, if the Comcast digital adapter is connected to the Sony through a coaxial patchcord, then the Sony would really have to be set to Ch 4 (or 3). Channel selection is done on the Comcast digital adapter. It is not possible to record one channel while viewing another.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa

http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/RDR-HXD890/downloads/FW_DVDR_124 Make sure the ribbon cable going to the laser head from the main board is seated correctly at both ends. Use a scope to verify signals present at the input to the laser. If not then find where it stops on the main board. If it is present then replace the laser mechanism.

RDR-HXD890 gets stuck in update mode


"If your recorder is stuck with UPDATE in the display you will need to hold the Power button for more than five seconds to perform a "soft" reset. It will switch off for a few seconds, then quickly and before it powers itself back on again , TAP THE POWER BUTTON 2 OR 3 TIMES , and it should say WELCOME and will then go to a black screen with no freeview channels

if you use easy setup and select location FRANCE or BELGIUM it wont lock up on epg update and will allow you to operate the machine

but epg wont work

this is a temporary fix until Sony provides a fix for epg problem.

Press the info button once on the HXD890's remote control (button top right on the main circle in the middle). All should then dissappear.
