Malata DVP-500p plays CD's but not DVD's

Hi all, CD's play okay, but DVD's (commercial, not burned) spin without being recognized. Opened it up and laser lens is clean. Any ideas? Laser starting to die? Thanks, GENE

Could be But most of the time when a tech says a laser assy is bad Its not. It could be a simple grating adj on the pickup assy that alot of techs dont have a clue what it is. This alighnment requires speacial tools and is not advised if you dont know how to do it. What it does is adj. the laser postion onto the prism inside the pickup assy. Or youer problem could be a tracking/focus Gain or offsetr alighnment. This has to be dont looking at the rf waveform from the pickup assy drive circuit via an oscilliscope. These are not unfortantly a consumer adjustment as well. If its an inexpensive player, such as more then a year or so old or under 75 bucks , it probably wont pay to have someone look at it. My friend , this is the times of the throwaway world!! Good Luck

Dvp ns725p says: cannot play this disc

Is it for all discs or just certain types of discs? Some DVD players simply cannot play some formats unfortunately. Often, the issue is with burned DVD-R or DVD+R discs or CD Video. Sometimes it's simply a matter of a bad burn. Refer to your manual as to the formats compatible with your player.

Creating DVDs to play on DVP 5960

Best solution I've found to the "out of order" problem is to copy all the files I want on the CD to a temporary folder and then rename each with a number. If you have 100 or more pictures, start out with the first one you want displayed with 001, and so on. Secondly, if you want to create a Jpeg DVD, you need video editing software. Personally, I use Sony Vegas but there are other, less expensive, options.

Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS50P not playing my avi files DVD+RW

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.

Suddenly "cannot play this disk" on Sony DVD/CD..every DVD...CD's work!

I have the same problem. I have a 5 year warranty from the company I purchased the unit from. I am not sure if they will replace it or not. I am reluctant to buy another one with this known issue. We have enjoyed the unit for nearly 3 years with no issues.

Won't playback copied dvd's, only commercially made ones.

Read here and we can see that other people have both trouble and success running back ups on this device: So... That tells us this device is finicky IE it requires a high quality burn. DVD burners have varying levels of accuracy. To improve your burn: -SLOW the burn speed for increased accuracy -USE DVD-R only as it is the most compatible -Use those Sony's DVD-r's at wal-mart or KMART because Sony makes DVR's and everyone else buys them from generic Taiwan manufacturer and relabel I bet this will solve your problem. After you get a successful burn at 2x try 4x then 6 etc.
