Question about Sony DVP-NS575P DVD Player

1 Answer

Does not play DVD

My DVD player stopped suddenly playing any DVDs.  It makes a mild 'grrrrr' sound after I have put a DVD in and then nothing happens.
I would appreciate any insights you might have so I know whether I can get it repaired or not.
Thank you

    Thank you so much!  I did as you suggested and indeed it was a mechanical problem.  The disk was not spinning but it started spinning again and it is working now!  I am not foolish enough to think that it won't happen again as it will but for the time being it is working.  However, what do you think had happened to prevent it from spinning and why did it begin again?  I cleaned some dust that was in the machine with a fine brush.

    Anyway, thank you for getting me to take the top off and look inside.  I do appreciate the guidance and am sure will be asking your advice again.

    Have a nice day and thanks again,

    Hi, would you be able to describe to me what the shaft of spindle motor and sled motor look like as I do not know?  The DVD player stopped again so I am going to try and apply WD-40 contact cleaner and hope for the best!

    Thank you again,

    I am having the same problem with this same sony DVD player model DVP-NS575P. Making a grrrr noise and will not play a DVD/CD. It powers on fine and ejects fine. Just no play and makes the noise.

    From reading this post I am not sure I got the full solution. Do you mean to take the screws out and take the top off? Then what? Would you kindly tell me the step by steps?

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it

Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Combi not playing DVD's

If this unit is a few months old can you swap it with the shop you got it in? Errors like the ones you mention sound like the laser is not reading the DVDs. (Which you would expect to find on old players).

Just check you are putting in valid DVD's which play in other players and that you are putting them in the correct way (not upside down - yes it happens).

DVP NS-530 Cannot Play

It sounds electro-mechanical. Meaning it could be a solenoid not engaging one of the mechanical arms, or even one of the plastic mechanical arms could have jumped out of their socket. It doesn't sounds too drastic, however the unit will have to be pulled apart and investigated. thanks ST

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly

Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.
