1. Press system menu.
2. Select setup, press enter.
3. Select options, press enter.
4. Select command mode, press enter.
5. Select DVD3, press enter.
6. Set the command mode for the remote so that it matches the command mode for the recorder you just set, i.e., DVD3. You do this by: Hold down enter, while pressing enter, press then number 3. Keep them pressed down for 5 seconds.
7. Press return to return to the previous display.

To check to make sure: Press stop on the recorder when the recorder is turned off. The command mode for the recorder should appear on the display.

The following should give you access to a service menu containing controls for macro-vision and region coding. You can change the regional settings from there.



1. Set your player to Standby
2. Press Title, Clear and Power

I accidentally changed the command code from dvd3 to dvd1 and now my remote doesn't work, and I don't know how to access the systems menu to change it back.


Hi,
Since unit has been set on DVD1 remote mode so you need to set remote control itself on dvd1 mode to communicate with unit.
Press and hold Enter and 1 numeric key on remote control for 5 seconds, this will change remote control to dvd1 mode, now unit will accept remote control signal and you can operate it normally.
Thanks.
