  • Press the Functions menu button on the remote control, and when the menu appears, select Others and press OK.
  • Then select Set Up and press OK.
  • Select To Others and press the right hand arrow on the circle pad.
  • Then select Initialize and press OK.
  • Select Shipping Condition and press OK.
  • The warning message will come up three times. Please press OK each time it does.
  • When this has been done, you will need to turn theDVD Recorder off and disconnect it from the mains for a few minutes.

When I press "function menu" all I get is DVD1" and flashing white light

Expert:  michelleclive replied 1 year ago.
push and hold down the ENTER button and the 1, 2 or 3 number button at the same time. It sounds like you will need to hold ENTER and the "1" button.
You will need to hold down both buttons on the remote for over 10 seconds.

the remote memory was basically corrupted so we did a reset and its back to normal now.
