The system will play about 80% of DVDs but every now and then I get one that it won't read (these are new DVDs). Just to check out that it is not a faulty DVD I can play them on my PC and laptop but not on the Sony DAV-S888

I doubt you are having any kind of signal loss. By your own admission, "some DVDs are worse". Most likely, your optical pickup(laser) is no longer up to spec. Very soon, it will not read any DVDs. My guess is that it will play CDs. This is the only reason why some DVDs play when others fail. For more information, or to inquire about a repair, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com.

1 The problem is the dvds disc which you are using are not compatible with your system. Check the the regional code at the back of your dvd cover and check if your dvd player can play those dvds. This information is given in the booklet provided with your system.
