Question about Sony RDR-VX530 DVD Recorder/VCR
Hi! I had the same problem. Press the pause button on the RECORDER for 5 seconds and the progressive light will go off. Not the remote, the recorder.

I had a very similar problem but mine got stuck on DVD 1 and I could not get the System Menu to come on. I read the whole manual from front to back. Holding the Pause button and the DVD button did not work. Neither did unplugging the unit. But I discovered (pg. 26 of manual) that there is a COMMAND MODE switch which can get you out of the Progessive Mode or DVD 1 mode. If you look at your remote, on the bottom there is a panel that you can slide down. Look at the very bottom right - there is a tiny little switch and you should have the factory label over it that says Do Not Remove. Gently peel back the label, being careful not to remove it entirely and move that switch to the LEFT. Voila! Everything works. You may have to go back and re-set everything the way it was before manually but now you have access to the System Menu to do that! Now if I can only get this to work with my digital converter I'll be in good shape. GL.
