Question about Sony RDR-GX315 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

DVD recorder works only for a couple of hours

My Sony RDR-GX315 works fine playing back DVD's for a couple of hours, then it begins to skip and eventually will not read any disc. If I turn off the player for a few minutes, I can play discs for a couple of hours again before it does the same thing. Can anyone tell me what's happening?

    I also need to add, that I have used a lens cleaner disc and the machine will play CD's just fine, just not DVD's.

Sony RDR-GX315 DVD Recorder. Error message: "The disk can be neither played nor recorded"

Which blank media do you have?
Check out CDFREAKS.com forum
Does your burner prefer + or- disks?
Try a slower burn speed
Try a different blank media.
Don't buy the cheapest disks

I have good results with Verbatum, Taiyo Yunden (Fuji)

Looking for the code to unlock my sony rdr-gx315 dvd player

There are no default password to unlock the parental lock. If you've forgotten the password, it is required to perform the Easy Setup to reset the settings on the DVD Recorder. Please refer to page # 83 of the Recorder's manual to reset the Settings.

Turn off recorder. Hold the on/off button on the dvd player for a few seconds. until "CHILD LOCK" disappears. The child lock is now disengaged...Check page 37 in the manual (I found it online -- same thing happened to my player -- I just freed it)

Discs I have recorded I get the disc can neither be played nor recorder, and it erases what I have already and already watched.

I have the same unit. Similar problem but mine does not erase the disc. It says disc error on almost all dvd that are store bought and kicks them out. Will play almost all of the ones I recorded on it and finalized. I must let a disc in it at all times or door will not open. Lots of bad stuff on the net about this unit. It is a lemon! Mine is out of warranty and sony wants $175 to fix. Saw some blogs where it was serviced 3 times and still not right. Buy a new one before investing in the unit you have as there are many gremlins in it! Sorry I cannot offer specific help but this is where I am at!!
