- The same when I again tried to format after re-writing drive ID.
- Apparently, this ID is copied and stored in an EEPROM on board and they need to match.
- Holding down the REC Pause, SYSTEM Menu, and TOOLS all a the same time, turn the unit on with the front on/off switch.
- The solution was to clear the update history stored in service mode.
- After writing the disk ID, I still just get the 'NG' message when I try to format the new disk.
- I have tried to format a new drive without success.
- Eventually you will see the S in the front display and the fan will start!
The symptoms were similar to yours: stuck on HDD Err or wouldn't boot past the Welcome screen. A daylater problem occurred again. Good luck, the service menu is very sketchy on what all of thes functions do. Therefore, make sure to check the procedure below BEFORE applying TB 06HV027.
Sony wants to charge me $250 for it. Something else must play into this. From there go to the HDD menu. http://forums.afterdawn.com/threads/sony-rdr-hx900-hdd-error.503784/ I suppose I could attempt to find a secondhand motherboard, but I'm not convinced it would be worth the effort (and quite probably wasted cost), would it?

Good luck. his comment is here The number entries on the pad correspond to the menu picks. Your own experiences certainly do sound fairly similar to mine - other than that I have not yet experienced any 'intermittent working'. Plasma Flat Panel Displays Plasma Flat Panel Great Found Deals!
Can I fix this by replacing the hard drive - it is about 15-16 months old so out of warranty - if I can is there anything 'special' I need to I beleive the newer model which are basically rebadged Pioneer units can have a larger drive installed. with bigger drives (up to 400GB), so I'm guessing there's probably some way to tell it to use the larger drive. http://nzbsites.com/sony-dvd/sony-dvd-recorder-hdd-error.html I wish that was possible, but I guess Sony isn't as helpful with that like some other manufacturers (Philips is great about it).
No place locally would handle it.

Yes, a very valid thought - but, unlike much of the UK, we have escaped the recent lightning, so I don't think that can be the explanation.

It seems much faster now that they upgraded the firmware, and was well worth the cost to let them do everything for me. -T timmo is offline Quote Remove Advertisements timmo is offline Quote post #26 of 52 Old 08-10-2007, 12:35 PM Rammitinski AVS Addicted Member Join Date: Sep 2005 Location: Des Plaines, IL Posts: 29,525 Mentioned: 0 It should work. http://nzbsites.com/sony-dvd/sony-dvd-recorder-rdr-gx7-disc-error.html Dual Format Players HDTV Software Media Discussion HD DVD Players HD DVD Software Gaming & Content Streaming Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
I paid $700 for mine. Has anyone had this model repaired and at what cost? Also, a step by step instruction in this thread(for an idiot like myself) for replacing the HDD would be greatly appreciated. these are a common problem on these models, there cheap and unreliable.
HDD ERROR is'nt necessery an HDD fault as i found out with my rdr-hx525. I have spent a little time researching and comparing the two drives. Please enter a valid email address.
