Question about Sony RDR-HX725 DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
I have a Sony rdr -hx 725. It was repaired due to a fault that caused it to cycle through the on to off procedure continually unti it was unplugged.The switches on the machine and the remote would not operate while it was doing this.That was 6 months ago it is now out off warranty and it has started again.If i unplug it for ashort time say 30 mins it does not fix it, but leave it overnight then it works fine.It is really annoying when if i want to record something and it has a mind of its own i cannot use it. I still have to consult with the sony shop to see what they say abou it but i was curiuos to see if anyone at FixYa recognized the problem.Thanks
I had the same problem, which, curiously, is slightly described in the instructions manual (towards the end) as an electrostatic problem. They tell you to unplug the DVD for 24 hours : it works but does not prevent it for doing the same thing later and, in my experience, in shorter and shorter times.
I decided recently to mount a ground with an electric thread from one screw behind the DVD to the corresponding plug : to day, I still hadn't any problem for seven weeks (compared with one month regularly and eleven days the last time.
Aha ! excuse me, I'm french and perhaps not perfectly bilingual...
