Remote is Stuck in DVD 1 mode

The remote is stuck! Any Button that I press shows DVD 1. I have done everything that it says to do in the manual with NO results. I know that I have to get the remote to align with DVD 3. I am stumped on this one.

I had this same problem: Recorder displaying "DVD 1" whenever I pressed any button on the remote. Called Sony Tech Support and this is what they told me to do: 1) Turn the unit on; 2) Press the Enter and the 1 keys on the remote at the same time for 5 seconds. (This I was told was to set the remote to DVD 1); 3) Press the System Menu key on the remote to bring up this menu up on the TV screen. (This takes a few seconds, so be patient.); 4) Access the Setup Page on the menu and set your unit via this way to DVD 3 if you want. (The Tech actually said I could leave it at DVD 1 if I wanted. I set mine back to DVD 3 - default.) I then performed auto-Set-up on my unit, and everything was back to normal. Hope this helps, otherwise I would recommend calling Sony Tech Support.

    I followed these instructions and I got my system menu back on my screen. Thank you.
    It is important to remember that when you press both "enter" and a "number" you might not see anything happen on your player but when pressing the "system menu" button after, I was delighted to see it pop up.

I had this same problem (DVD1). Resolved as follows: With DVD player on, pointed remote at DVD player, pressed and held the 1 key and then pressed and held the enter key (both at same time) until I saw the DVD1 on the DVD player display disappear. Now everything works.

I have a Sony RDR-GX360. Some how I have changed the command mode from DVD1 to DVD 3. Now my remote has frozen and I can't do anything with the DVR player. Is there a reset button or please help.


To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue is to take the remote for that recoreder 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 unpluged tthe player replug it back in. The remote has to be away from the player to work. again example

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.bigsmile.gifclap.gifagreed.gifpuh2.gifbowdown.gifeek.gif To fix the Sony remote dvd-1 dvd-2 dvd-3 issue is to take the remote for that recoreder into another room or unplug the dvd recorder a moment.

Locked out of the menue ,Need to reset command mode


Indeed, I did the same thing.... I did find the answer in the manual!
Here's a copy of it (pg 23):

Set the command mode for the remote so it matches
the command mode for the recorder you set above.
1 Hold down ENTER
2 While holding down ENTER, enter the
command mode code number using the
number buttons.
Command Mode Code number
DVD1 number button 1
DVD2 number button 2
DVD3 number button 3
3 Hold down both the number buttons and
ENTER at the same time for more than 3
seconds.
4 Let up, press RETURN, all done!

Picture is split -- says P-SCAN. It's stuck


that means it is stuck on progressive scan.  If your tv is not able to handle progressive scan, you need to change it back or reset the player.  
The DVD player may be set to Progressive Scan Mode. You will need to change it to Video Mode by using the remote control. Point the remote control directly at the DVD player, and then press the PSCAN button 2-3 times. If you are still encountering problems with the DVD player, reset the unit back to the default setting.

To Reset,
Make sure you do not have a disk in the tray. Using the DVD player remote control: 1) Press the “Setup” button. 2) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 3) On the “Right’ arrow, press it once. 4) On the “Down” arrow, press it three times. 5) On the “Right” arrow, press it once, then press “Enter”. 6) Press the Setup button. *The default setting will take affect as soon as you press the setup button (step 6).
Hope it helps..please rate!

Polaroid TV Code


Hello,

About the only thing you can do is do a code search. If it doesn't show up then, the remote does not have it (as with most tv/dvd or tv/vcr combos).

Turn the TV on manually. Then, push the switch at the top to the far right (to the TV position). Simultaneously press and hold the MUTE and SELECT buttons until the TV light at the top flashes. Release the buttons, then press and release 9, 9, 1. The TV button should flash again.
Press and release the 1 button again, then press and release the TV POWER button. Press and release the Channel UP button about once a second until the TV turns itself off. Press and release the select button, and you should be good to go.

If after a while, the TV button starts flashing rapidly, then there are no more codes to search, and the remote does not have the code, and you are stuck using 2 remotes..

Hope this helps...
