no reset, the infred led inside the unit are bad and need to be replaced common problem, they are located on the ends of the tape mech.

I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.
You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

everyone who bought a sony DVDplayer/video cassette recorder SLV-D370P should contact sony and complain. Then, we should all sue sony for everything they got!!! I'll never waste my money on sony again.

That particular unit is very sensitive to scratched or dirty disks. Remove the disk and make sure there are no finger prints, peanut butter & jelly, or popcorn butter stains on the back side. If there is, gently wash the disk under warm water with a DROP of mild dish detergent, being careful not to scratch the surface. Rinse the disk well and dry with a soft, lint free cloth (like an old cotton t-shirt) again being careful to avoid scratching the disk. Replace the disk and play.
If the disk is scratched, there is little hope of fixing the scratch so the unit can read it.....
