Re: All DVD`s installed in player skip .Also DVD`s that...
First thing i would do i clean the lens with 90% isoprople alcohol and a q-tip, if that doesn't work watch the laser eye again and the movement is the laser look like it tries to catch up??? i would put a dc volt meter on the motor and the motor should stay at lower voltage if it climbs then there is something with the rails or worm gear. let me know what you find out.

First try a cd head cleaner. It has to work well enough to ffwd to track 4 or as instructed. If that does not work you need to open the case. Unplug power as the laser can blind you. 5 screws on the back and one each side. Lift the lid from the back to about 30 degrees and pull/ wiggle it off. Use a cotton bud wetted with alcohol (Isopropyl or surgical). You need to wipe the glass lens very very gently. wipe dry with other end of cotton bud. Recover and try.
While covers are off look for bulging capacitors or signs of black overheating.
Most likely the default format of the video that you are playing is not supported buy your receiver. You may try to go into the audio setup and switch it to another format and/or try a disk that supports other audio formats to see if you still have the problem. They any are always coming out with newer versions of dolby and dts. So some times the new version is not fully compatible with the older receivers.
Let me know i you have any more problems or questions

Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....
Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
Return the unit to the store which you purchased it from. You have an internal problem with the scanner (led) You can first try to clean the led this could be your problem. They sell lens cleaning dvd disks. try it, you have nothing to loose. If this does not work, just bring it back.
