Can you on the player itself, hold the channel up and channel down buttons for 6 seconds then release.
this should bring you to the setup menu. Complete this and when you have, tell me if the player now functions correctly please.

Have held the channel Up and Down buttons for six seconds and it has made no difference what ever. I still cannot make the 'Guide' or the "Function Menu" operate from the Controller. What do you now recommend I do ?

Did it enter the setup menu when you did that Anthony?
