How do I set the time on my Pioneer RT500?


Hi!

Please follow the instructions given below... =)

Setting the clock

The clock is set to the correct time automatically, but it
can also be set manually. The clock can be set for
daylight saving time and time zone.
Preparation:
• Turn ON the TV and set it to the video input mode.
• Select “CLOCK” from “SYSTEM SETUP”. For the
procedure, see steps 1 to 3 in “Using the SETUP
MENU”

1 Press SETUP while the DVD and video tape is
stopped.
The SETUP MENU screen will appear.

press ENTER.
The submenu screen of the selected menu will appear.
TIMER REC SET
SYSTEM SETUP
AV SETUP
REC SETUP
CH SETUP
OTHER
LANGUAGE
PARENTAL
CLOCK
DISC SETUP
OTHER
SETUP MENU
3 Press  or  to select the desired submenu and
press ENTER.
The screen for the selected submenu will appear.



CLOCK (manually)
You can manually set the date, year and present time
with the remote control.
Ex.: Setting the clock to “10:20AM” October, 30th, 2004.
1 Select “CLOCK” and press ENTER.
01/01/04 12:00AM
2 Select the desired items using  or  (month,
date, year, hour, minute and AM/PM) then press
ENTER.
3 Press  or  to set the value of the selected
item.
• For the minutes, press  or  once to set the time
minute by minute, or hold down either of buttons
for several seconds to set the time in 10-minute
intervals.
10/30/04 10:200AM
4 Repeat steps 2 and 3 to set the date, year and
present time, and press ENTER. The SETUP MENU
will close.
This completes clock time setting.
AUTO CLOCK
You can automatically set the clock by turning “ON” the
AUTO CLOCK function.
When you want to set the auto clock function to “OFF”,
select “AUTO CLOCK”, press ENTER and select “OFF”
from the list.

Auto clock setting
Preparation:
You must connect the antenna or cable before connecting
the AC cord to the power source.
Wait 30 minutes with the power turned off, after the
antenna or cable is connected, for the auto clock
feature to activate.
After the clock is set automatically, you may have to set
the time zone and daylight saving time. (See page 26.)
Press STANDBY/ON to turn on the DVD/VCR after the
auto clock operation completed.
• When shipped from the factory, the “AUTO CLOCK”
option is set to “ON” position.
• If you turn the DVD/VCR on during auto clock
setting, the clock is not set.
• After a power failure or disconnection of the power
plug, the clock setting will be lost. In this case, wait
30 minutes before turning the DVD/VCR on.
• With cable box connection, if the auto clock setting
is unsuccessful, select the PBS channel carrying
the XDS information, then turn the DVD/VCR off.
After 30 minutes, turn the DVD/VCR on.
• If the clock is not set automatically, set the clock
manually.


STANDARD TIME (Time zone)
In the rare event that you live within the broadcast range
of two stations in two different time zones, the DVD/VCR
may recognize the wrong station for the auto clock set.
To correct the situation:
Select “STANDARD TIME” and select the time zone from
the list below.
Selectable time zones and correction times
ATLANTIC: GMT – 4 hours
(GMT: Greenwich Mean Time)
EASTERN: GMT – 5 hours
CENTRAL: GMT – 6 hours
MOUNTAIN: GMT – 7 hours
PACIFIC: GMT – 8 hours
ALASKA: GMT – 9 hours
HAWAII: GMT – 10 hours
AUTOMATIC: AUTO SET
Note
• When shipped from the factory, the “TIME ZONE” is
set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• After making the auto clock setting, in some cases
the clock may display another time zone. You can
correct the clock by selecting your time zone
setting above.
• When the clock is not set or you set the clock
manually, the time zone setting is not available.
DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME
You can set the clock to daylight saving time automatically
or manually.
To select daylight saving time, select “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” and select “ON”, while to cancel the
daylight saving time, select “OFF”.
ON: For manual setting (forward 1 hour)
OFF: For manual setting (back 1 hour)
AUTOMATIC: For automatic setting (read XDS in
the signal)
Note
• When you want to set daylight saving time, on the
first Sunday in April you set it to “ON”, and on the
last Sunday in October you set it to “OFF”.
• When shipped from the factory, the “DAYLIGHT
SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.

Error U99 disc stuck in machine


Neat Things

I have also discovered a number of special things you can do using special key presses. These have not been documented in any of the user manuals. As an aside, one time I was trying to manually set the clock. There is an automatic clock setting mechanism, but it's never correct. Even if it is, if the program you are recording starts 1 second early, it looks like it started at "8:59 pm" instead of "9:00 pm". The way I set the clock is 30 seconds before the top of the minute (At exactly 30 seconds after 9:00, my clock goes to 9:01). This way, you will have a ±30-second window at the top of the hour to get the time-stamp correct. At any rate, I was trying to set the clock manually, but that function was "grayed out". I tried the "Reinitialize Settings", but that didn't help. I tried to change the TV-Guide settings, but that didn't help either. I tried to switch between cable and TV, but that didn't help (and somehow even that became grayed out). I called Panasonic Tech Support. I was told that my system RAM had gotten corrupted and I had to send the unit in for service! This made no sense to me. I asked her if there wasn't a way to clear the RAM back to some starting point. I was told there wasn't, and please send the unit in for service. Well, as it turns out, there IS a way to do that! (See Commands) Another time, I (somehow?) managed to make the DVD Drive tray "Lock". If I tried to eject a DVD, it would display "LOCK" and refuse to open. At least this time, when I called tech support, I was told what to do - but it really should have been in the manual.

Commands

To toggle the disk eject from "LOCK" to "UNLOCK": With the unit ON, press and hold "Power" and "Stop" for 5 seconds.

To eject a disk if the unit won't operate (U99, etc.): With the unit OFF, press and hold "Power", "Stop" and "Channel Up" for 5 seconds.

To initialize ALL parameters to factory defaults: With the unit OFF, press "Skip Rev" ( |<< ) and "Time Slip" and "Open/Close" for 5 seconds.

To enter "Service Mode": With power off, press "Stop" and "Time Slip" and "Open/Close" for 5 seconds. "SERVICEMODE 00" is displayed.

What follows are the more useful commands you can perform. You use the remote to key in a 2 number value. You can usually return back to the "Service Mode" by entering "00". If you get stuck, hold the power key for 10-12 seconds or until the unit shuts off. Try to avoid unplugging the unit while in service mode. In fact, because losing power while writing to either the hard disk or a DVD-R or DVD-RAM can lose everything, I use a small "UPS" (Battery backed-up Power Source) to power my units. This way, if the AC Mains go out, I don't damage anything…

Oh, and DO NOT experiment with any number combinations that aren't documented here. If you do, you may wish you hadn't…

00 = Return to Service mode start.

02 = Display Firmware Versions. The display will show the following for 3 seconds each:

1. DVD Region Code (should be Region 1 for USA)

2. Main Firmware Version (0950DL, or something like that)

3. Timer firmware Version (0110DC, or something like that)

4. DVD Drive firmware version (J125, or something like that)

5. ROM checksum (I think) - It should be all zeroes.

The ROM checksum will remain. You can get back to Service Mode with 00.

41 = The number of hours the laser in the DVD drive has been active.

51 = All display segments are turned on. Use 00 to exit.

61 = Date the unit was manufactured. YYYYMMDD

To exit Service Mode, hold the power key for 10-12 seconds until the unit shuts off.

Magnavox DVD recorder #MWR10D6


Oh my god this thing is a piece-o-junk. It seemed to work just fine until about time the 90 day warranty ran out. The for some reason it started turning itself on and off without a timer program being set or anything. I did this every day at exactly 12:00 am and 12:00 pm. I should have known something was going bananas with it, but it still did everything else it was suppose to. Then it became impossible to set proper recording timer programs because the clock settings won't activate. It's like the internal clock is stuck or someting. Tried to get help from Magnavox and Wal-Mart, but like I said, it's outside the 90 day warranty now. What I suggest you do is the same as what I'm doing now. Tell as many people as you can and warn them away from this product, this company, and the scam-job they are running with this worthless piece of plastic.
