Sony DHG-HDD500

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Good evening folks. Ok i've had this fantastic Sony HD Dvr for years. Its been unplugged for about a yr or so... then I finally connected it with no problems watching tv however it had no tv guid data. As it was rebooting as usual when it's off the unit keeps restarting over and over... then on the front will display "Format..." then will cycle through say "Welcome..." and finally then display "INF 14000000" any help would be greatly appreciated. Dave.

The TV guide data was discontinued by the supplier and there is no way to manually set the clock. There is a whole big acitve thread about it here which I'm surprised you didn't see.

Thank you Im ok with the clock and guide not working I just want the damn thing to work so it can tune in the local channels, pause, rewind.ect... but the unit is not responding to any hard button controls. Won't even allow me to perform a factory reset. I googled the display issues but came up negative. Any ideas my friends ?

Wish there was an internet port which would allow some type of firmware update that might correct this issue. I spoke to sony support but were ABSOLUTELY USELESS. SURPRISE HAHAHA !!!
