The remote has probably quit working, to be sure take it to a tv repair shop, they should be able to check it while you wait.

Purchased the DP300 at the Goodwill. The DVD has the remote control;however, I do not know how to use the remote control. I used the red, yellow, and white connector to my the DVD player and to the TV but...


with regard to using the remote control :

Make sure the batteries in the remote are working (they go in the back of the remote at the bottom).

Turn on the DVD player with the power button on the DP300 itself (lower left). Open the dvd tray either with the remote (press open/close button, upper right) or with the button on the DP300. Put a DVD in the tray and close it with the remote or the button on the DP300. The DVD should load.

Use the arrow buttons in the centre of the remote to select choices from the onscreen menu of the DVD. Press Play (centre of the 4 arrow buttons) to activate the choice you want. For example, if you want to play a movie, use the arrow buttons to go up or down until "play movie" is selected, then hit PLAY, and movie will play. If you want to choose a scene/chapter of the movie, use arrow buttons to go up or down until Scene Selection or Chapter is selected (highlighted), and press PLAY. This should bring up a list of the scenes or chapters. Use the arrow buttons to select the one you want, then hit PLAY, and that scene should play.

If the DVD tray is taking less than 20 seconds to operate, there is likely no problem. If it is taking more, there may be. I think the mechanism that opens and closes the tray is often the first thing to stop working on DVD and CD players.

I can't turn the blu-ray player on or off with the remote. I can however do it manually. I also cannot open the disc drawer either with the remote or manually.


So would it be safe to say the remote isn't working?

• Is the remote control being operated within its operation range of angle and distance?

• Are the batteries exhausted?

• Have you selected the mode(TV/DVD) functions of the remote control (TV or DVD) correctly?

Need remote code for DVD player


From my searches I don't think you will find it. Try going to http://www.sony.ca/view/cic_contact.htm and asking them directly for it. I can't see them saying no.

Need program code and instructions for a memorex DVD player to program my One For All URC-9910 to a Memorex DVD player


The original instructions do not list Memorex as a maker of DVD players.

One forum says it might be DVD 0695, 0831, or 1270, but does not say if that was before or after a code upgrade from One For All.
Search for URC-9910 to find a complete instruction manual.

Also try "SEARCHING FOR YOUR CODE", although tedious, it may work:

SEARCHING FOR YOUR CODE

1. Turn on the TV and or device to program.
2. On the URC-9910 remote control, press and hold
SET until you see the display change from the
current device and time to [CODE SET].

NOTE: To exit programming at any time, press EXIT once or
allow 30 seconds of inactivity to lapse.


3. Press the DOWN key on the 4-way pad once until you see the display change to [MAN SEARCH].

NOTE: If you go past [MAN SEARCH], press the UP key one or
more times to return to it.

4. Press SELECT once to begin programming.You will
see the display change to the last-selected device
and its code (e.g., VCR and 0035).

5. Press a desired device key once (e.g., DVD).You will
see the display change to the desired device and the
first code in the manual search list (e.g., DVD and
0047).

6. Aim the URC-9910 remote control at the device
(e.g., DVD) and press SELECT once.You will see the
LED (red light) blink and the (IR) icon flash
indicating IR codes are being transmitted.


7. If the device (e.g., DVD) turned off, skip to the next
step. If it did not turn off, aim the URC-9910 remote
control at the device (e.g., DVD) and press the UP key
once to advance the manual search to the next code
(e.g., DVD and 0054).Again you will see the LED (red
light) blink and the (IR) icon flash.
Repeat this step as often as needed until you find a
code that turns off the device.

8. To save the working code, press SELECT once.The
display will confirm your entry with [SUCCESS] and
then [EXIT SETUP].

Is there an input select?


I can view channels but cannot view a DVD from the TV/DVD Disney Princess Combo. Only see static on the screen with no sound. I wonder if I need to change the input select to view a movie but cannot find a button on the TV or remote control. I have a 6 button remote which I am sure operates the DVD and another remote with 39 buttons I thought would operate the player as well as the TV. However, so far only the player functions from it. The buttons only have small pictures without words which sometimes leaves some question about purpose. This is a second hand unit. I do not have a manual. It did play movies at first. I think the trouble may have started when I programed cable channels. Any help will be greatly appreciated
