Question about Sony Dvcam DSR-PD170 DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Time code breaks

This problem happens on my PD170 occasionally: TC will stop and restart at 0 when I go from recording to standby. I am not turning the power off. It will happen for a whole tape. Then when I put a new tape in, the problem disappears.
My TC format is set to Auto, Record Run, and UB time is set to Off.

I'm wondering if I'm accidentally hitting some button (not inside the menu)

Any thoughts?

Have the PD170 professionally cleaned; a worn pinch roller causes time code inaccuracies like the ones you are describing.

How do I access messages when I am not by the phone?


nschutz,

Remote Operation

You can operate your answering system from a remote location (when you are away from home, or from another room using a handset).

Use this function to check for recorded messages, to play or delete message. When using any touch-tone telephone, you can even record a new greeting message.

Remote Access away from Home
You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any touch-tone telephone.

1) Call your telephone number.
2) During the greeting message, press 0 and enter your PIN code
3) The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in memory. Then you hear "To play incoming messages, press zero two.
For help, press one zero."
4) You may continue to listen to the voice prompts, or you may select a command from the following chart:

*For Memo Record and Greeting Message Record function, the first time you enter the corresponding command, it starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the recording, enter the command again.
5) After all of the voice prompts have been played, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the chart.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering system automatically returns to standby.

0 then 1 Repeat a Message
0 then 6 Answering System On
0 then 2 Play Incoming Messages
0 then 7 Memo Record/Stop*
0 then 3 Skip a Message
0 then 8 Greeting Message Record/Stop*
0 then 4 Delete a Message 0 then 9 Answering System Off
0 then 5 Stop Operation
1 then 0 Voice Prompts

Turn on the Answering System Remotely
If you have forgotten to turn on your answering system, you can turn it on remotely from any touch-tone telephone.
1) Call your telephone number.
2) Wait ten rings until the system answers. You hear intermittent beeps.
3) Press 0 and then enter your PIN code. The answering system announces the number of messages stored in memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero two. For help, press one zero."
4) Press 0 then 6 to turn the answering system on. You hear the outgoing message and a confirmation tone.
5) Hang up the phone; subsequent calls will be answered by the system.

Code to retrieve messages


Here are the instructions you need to follow:

If you want to be able to play your messages from a remote location, you need to enter a two-digit Personal Identification Number (PIN) code (01-99).
To select a PIN, perform the following steps:
1) With the phone in standby, press [menu/clock] twice.
The system announces "Security code," and the current PIN code is announced as it is displayed on the base.
Then the system announces the instructions for setting the PIN code.
2) Press [volume/select/ ] or [volume/select/ ] until the desired number appears.
3) Press [set] to select the PIN code. You hear a confirmation tone, then the announcement "Security code" followed by the new PIN code is announced. After a few seconds, the system announces "To set ring time, press menu again."
Note: The PIN code is set to "80" at the factory.

Remote Operation

Checking voice mail remotely


This may be a little late, you are probably home already, but here it is anyhow:

Remote Operation
You can check, play, or delete messages, even record a new greeting message from a remote
location (when you are away from home, or from another room using a handset).
Additionally, you can turn On or Off your answering system remotely.
Remote access away from home
You can operate your answering system from a remote location using any
touch-tone telephone.
1) Call your telephone number and wait for the system to answer. If the answering system is
off, it will answer after about 10 rings and sounds a series of beeps.
2) During the greeting message (or a series of beeps when the answering system is off),
press 0 and enter your PIN code within 2 seconds (see "Setting a PIN Code" on page 25
or 54).
3) The answering system announces the current time and the number of messages stored in
memory. You hear "To play incoming messages, press zero-two. For help, press one-zero".
You will hear a beep.
4) Enter a command within 15 seconds, each command there after must be entered within 2

0 then 5 Stop Operation 1 then 0 Help Guidance
* For Repeat a Message function, press 0 then 1 within about four seconds to repeat
the previous message, or press 0 then 1 after about four seconds to repeat the
current message.
** For Memo Record and Greeting Message Record function, the first time you enter the
corresponding command, it starts the Recording function. If you want to stop the
recording, press 0 then 7 or 8.

5) After the command has finished, you hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system
is in the command waiting mode. You may enter another command at this time from the
chart above.
6) When you are finished, hang up to exit the system. The answering system automatically
