Trouble with the Remote Commander's basic settings
Problem The Remote Commander does not turn on. The display turns off automatically. The beep does not sound. Even though you hold down a button, it does not work as intended. Solution Check the remaining battery level. If low, replace with new ones. The Remote Commander is preset at the factory to turn the display off automatically if you do not operate for more than 30 seconds. You can reset the automatic-off time to 1-60 seconds (page 22). The beep is turned off. Turn the beep on (page 23). The volume buttons and cursor buttons, and some others, continue to work when they are pressed and held. If you program the signals of such buttons, Remote Commander (RMAX1400) may not learn the signals accurately. Reprogram the signals by continuing to hold down the desired button of the other remote control until Learning is complete. appears in the AX1400 Remote Editor screen. The batteries of the other remote control are weak. Replace with new ones and reprogram the signals. Unit Setting of the project set up on your PC is activated if you download data changed on your PC with the Download the Unit Setting data together with the project data box checked. A malfunction has occurred in Remote Commanders firmware. Update the firmware using AX1400 Remote Editor.
The display setting is unintentionally changed. RECOVERY appears on the screen and all the buttons are disabled.
Trouble with operation mode
Problem Solution I cannot operate my component Get closer to the component. The maximum operating distance by pressing the Remote is approximately 32.8 ft. (10 m). Commanders button. Check that you are aiming the Remote Commander directly at the component, and that there are no obstructions between the Remote Commander and the component. Turn on the components first, if necessary. Check that the component has infrared remote capability. For example, if your component did not come with a Remote commander, it probably is not capable of being controlled by a Remote Commander. The video/audio components volume is not controlled by the Remote Commander. If your video components are connected to an audio component, see the Help menu provided in AX1400 Remote Editor. You have assigned another component which was originally set as TV or RCVR at the factory. In this case, the volume cannot be controlled when you select a component other than TV or RCVR.
A System Control function does Make sure that you have programmed the commands in the not work correctly. correct order. Try changing the orientation of the Remote Commander. If that does not help, try placing the components as close to each other as possible. Check the status of the components and make sure that you have set the components properly to receive commands. The component codes are changed or new signals have been learned for a button that has been programmed with a series of commands. In this case, the new signals are transmitted when the series of commands is executed. Even if I operate an XPRESS function, the TV does not turn on, or it turns off. The Remote Commander memorizes the status of the components input select and power on/off. However, if you turn on/off the component with its own remote control or operate the component directly, it will not recognize the current component status. In this case, press the SYNC-UP button to synchronize with the status of the current component and the Remote Commander. If the TV turns off by its own Sleep function, the Remote Commander does not recognize its status. Turn off the TV with the Remote Commander. The Remote Commander memorizes the status of the components input select and power on/off. However, if you turn on/off the component with its own remote control or operate the component directly, it will not recognize the current component status. In this case, press SYNC-UP button to synchronize the status of the current component and the Remote Commander. If the TV turns off by its own Sleep function, the Remote Commander does not recognize its status. Turn off the TV with the Remote Commander. The Remote Commander memorizes the status of the components input select and power on/off. However, if you turn on/off the component with its own remote control or operate the component directly, it will not recognize the current component status. In this case, press the SYNC-UP button to synchronize the status of the current component and the Remote Commander. If the TV turns off by its own Sleep function, the Remote Commander does not recognize its status. Turn off the TV with the Remote Commander. Aim the Remote Commander at the components until Start macro or Exit macro operations are finished. Start macro is not executed properly if the interval (delay time) between the components power-on signal and input switch signal is short. Set the interval (delay time) longer. Start macro is not executed properly if the interval (delay time) between components input select signal is short. Set the interval (delay time) longer.
Even if I operate an XPRESS function, the source component does not turn on, or it turns off.
Even if I operate an XPRESS function, the input selector of the TV or RCVR (Receiver/ Amplifier) does not achieve the correct status.
The Remote Commander does not synchronize with the current status of components even though I perform the SYNC-UP operation.
Trouble with setting mode
Problem The Remote Commander fails to learn remote control signals. Solution When learning, place your components remote control and Remote Commander (RM-AX1400) of about 1-3 inches (3-8 cm) apart. Check the remaining battery power of both remote units. If low, replace with new ones. Avoid learning in places under direct sunlight or strong fluorescent light. When you program signals of an interactive signal exchange system remote control unit (supplied with some of Sonys receivers and amplifiers) to the Commander, the response signal of the main unit may interfere with the learning of the Commander. In such a case, move to a place where the signals will not reach the main unit (e.g. another rooms, etc.). Perform the Learning procedure after turning off any nearby apparatus, such as an air-conditioner or infrared headphones. The Remote Commander may fail to learn remote control signals near plasma TVs. Avoid learning near plasma TVs or turn off the plasma TV when learning. The Remote Commander may fail to learn remote control signals under strong fluorescent light. The Remote Commander may fail to learn remote control signals if the component generates interference. In this case, move away from the component when programming the Remote Commander. If a noise is included in the learned signals, you may not operate a component. In this case, refer to The Remote Commander fails to learn remote control signals above. If you do not operate for more than 60 seconds during setting mode, the Remote Commander automatically exits the setting mode and turns off. Perform the next operation step within 60 seconds.
I cannot operate a component even after I programmed remote control signals with the learning function. The setting mode unintentionally quits while setting up.
Problem I want to use an XPRESS function for multi-purpose components (VCR+DVD, TV+VCR, DVD+RCVR (receiver), etc.). I want to set a DVD player for both XPRESS-DVD and XPRESS-CD. My PC cannot recognize the USB connection. Solution When you have a multi-purpose component (such as a DVD/VCR combo), select only one of either component type. For example, in the case of a DVD/VCR combo, select DVD or VCR. If you select both components, the XPRESS function will not work properly. You can set multiple XPRESS functions for one component. For example, when you watch a DVD, you can set the sound to output from the TV. Or, when you listen to a CD, you can set the sound to output from the RCVR (Receiver/Amplifier). Make sure to install the USB driver properly (page 10). If the connection goes thorough a HUB, some PCs do not recognize it. In this case, connect it directly to the USB port of your PC. If E is shown in the display, replace the batteries with new ones and reconnect the Remote Commander to your PC. If your PC still cannot recognize the USB connection, restart your PC.

This camera delivers outstanding picture quality with high resolution and accurate color reproduction. Featuring Sonys Advanced HAD technology that produces image with low noise, the BRC-300 is ideal in low illuminated shooting environments or when shooting dark subjects.
Sonys new BRC-300 is a revolutionary all-in-one compact robotic color video camera system, specially designed for remote video shooting applications. The BRC-300 incorporates three 1/4.7-type Advanced HAD CCDs, that provide high-quality and high-resolution images in both 4:3 and 16:9 modes. With its high-accuracy and wide-range Pan/Tilt/Zoom capability, the BRC-300 precisely captures the right points of the viewable area surrounding the camera to meet your needs. You can also easily operate the camera with Sonys optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit, which is equipped with an ergonomic joystick, and feature-rich control panel. And when used with optional BRBK-303 Optical Multiplex Card and BRU-300 Optical Multiplex Unit, the BRC-300 is capable of being controlled from a long distance with a single fiber optic cable connection. The BRC-300 also comes equipped with a card slot that accepts optional interface cards, enabling the camera to be integrated into every kind of system from S-Video to RGB, SDI, DV, or even fiber. In addition, two remote control interfaces (VISCA protocol) are available to provide additional expandability and flexibility for your remote shooting applications. With a number of convenient features such as its Image Flip function for desktop or ceiling mount flexibility, and its compact body, the BRC-300 is ideal for use in a wide range of remote shooting applications such as houses of worship, distance learning, corporate training, high-end videoconference, event shooting, and cable TV broadcasting.
High-performance Sony Pan/Tilt/Zoom Mechanism
The BRC-300 covers a wide shooting range with its highly accurate Pan/Tilt mechanism. It has one of the widest ranges in its class: a pan range of 340 degrees, and a tilt range of 120 degrees. The 340-degree pan range can be covered in 8 seconds, while the 120- degree tilt range can be covered in 4.5 seconds. With its newly developed Pan/Tilt mechanism, the BRC-300 can capture not only fast moving objects, but also slow moving objects without rocking vibration. Whats more, the BRC-300 incorporates a 12x optical auto-focus zoom lens, allowing for a zoom capability of up to 48x when used in combination with its 4x digital zoom.
