I had this very same problem. After several hours of being frustrated by it, I finally found the solution. Press the HDMI button on the remote and hold it depressed (for awhile). The unit responded and started working. No guarantees, but it worked for me. Good luck. By the way, this particular recorder, in my opinion, is a piece of garbage. I'll never again buy an RCA product

This model can not record. So you need to use a finalized disc - the listed spec is DVD-V (Region 1 or All). It also can't read DVD-ROM or DVD-RAM (trying this format can damage the unit).
If you have a DVD recorded on another machine and it isn't readable, check if the disc was finalized. Sometimes the brand of disc matters for playback of DVD-R or DVD+R discs. I've never found a rhyme or reason for some of these issues with one disc versus another.
try sothink dvd moviemaker software or dvdvideosoft software from www.cnet.com/download.....most dvd recorders will burn (check your manual for the correct type (+ / -) and brand that works best)...but wont let you play on other machines unless you format and the other machine is just as new as the recorder...(our older dvd players will not play these new dvd)
unplug it and plug it back in and press the progressive button to turn it off, should work. Yeah that blue screen sucks, i would have thought you can get to the menu no matter what but that's sanyo for you, well most other brands also...
