where can I buy another remote for this player?

Some of the buttons on my remote were not working so I disposed of it and got a new one (all purpose). It seems that I can not do a lot of the duties that the one that came with the machine could. I am lost for where to go next.

DVD Discs Not Recognized

Recently, my DVD player / recorder started to reject the DVD discs that I inserted. It doesn't matter which format -- it rejects them all. Even the DVD's that I recorded material on using this same DVD recorder. Some have been finalized on this machine -- others not yet. The error message just says that it does not recognize this DVD disc and then the door opens. It does accept commercially recorded DVD's for play without any problems though.

I do have another one of this same model machine and the rejected DVD discs can be played on it without a problem so the DVD's are alright.

Please advise. Thanks.

Answer: 
We regret the trouble you have experienced with this optical disc player. It seems that the drive reader may be beginning to fail. It is the only known reason why certain discs, created on this same device, are not being recognized, yet the discs still operating properly on other identical units. This unit may require service. Please contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000 to make proper service arrangements.

I want a new instruction manual for the RC897T. How?

I have not used this product to it's highest and best use because I do not have the manual that goes with it. it is a DVD/video recorder and player. RC897T. If you have instructions that are easier than the original one but still applies to this one would also help. As I recall the first one had a lot of problems with the information flow with regard to the decision making. I have done these myself and it could be much easier. Anyway, If you can get me access to the manual that I can download or send me, it would be a great help.
