The DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the machine.
The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:
Sony DAV-C700 Sony DAV-S400 Sony DAV-S500 Sony DAV-S800 Sony CMT-S9D
Macrovision & CGMS disable
All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD MOD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.
Put your player into „Standby“ Mode and enter one of the following commands if necessary:
Remote control command Function  [ENTER] Default Default region code on the player  [ENTER] Region 1  [ENTER] Region 2  [ENTER] Region 3  [ENTER] Region 4  [ENTER] Region 5  [ENTER] Region 6  [ENTER] Region 7  [ENTER] Region 8 [Arrow down] [ENTER] Only play DVDs with the selected region; auto switching OFF [Arrow up] [ENTER] Default Auto switching ON [PREV I<<] [ENTER] Enable video interference impulses (Macrovision ON) [NEXT >>I] [ENTER] Default Disable video interference impulses (Macrovision OFF) [Arrow left] [ENTER] Enable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions [Arrow right] [ENTER] Default Disable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions
* The DVD can no longer prohibit you from using the fast-forward, chapter change or Audio-/Subtitle-/Angle switch. You can no longer be forced to watch intros. Just press [TITLE] or [DVD MENU] and select PLAY.
A bizarre coincidence but our Sony DVD player DAV C700 did exactly the same when the kids were watching a DVD. All other functions on the system are still working but the DVD player wll not eject or play - and the self diagnosis function C 81 remains illuminated on the display.
A lot of "aged" problems relate to the power supply with this type of unit. If you are a handy chap and know what capacitors are you will find that finding and replacing the "dry" caps in the power supply will fix most problems including streaky pix and crackly audio.
Be sure NOT to load any CD+ -R,CD+-RW or DVD+-R,DVD+-RW to this unit. Try to load up a standard CD see if there is audio first. If so,try a good(not scratches) dvd movie.If you have tried both and still not working.You need this unit to be repair or buy a new one! Joe
mY DAV-C770 has the exact same problem ...when watching a movie it will intermittently pause or freeze ...then continue. It will do this 20 or 30 times throughout a movie.
I asked a tech at Sony for help and he told me the laser reader is out of alignment.
The minimum amount to have the dvd player sent out and repaired is $200.00, and thats if it does not require any parts.
with a new laser reader it will be about $400.00. Almost the same price as a new dream system. Not worth fixing. I used to think really highly of Sony - until now.
