My sony dvp fx970 wont play some dvd's

Screen says it is loading then it shows some preview screens then screen goes dark. Or no preview screen at all, just says its loading. Disc is still spinning but no sound or video. About half of the dvd's I put in it it says it "cannot read disc". It is a crapshoot if my player will play the dvd's I buy or not.

The only other thing I can suggest, having repaired many Sony CD/DVD players, is to get a can of compressed air and try to blow any dust out from the laser assembly. Since you've already cleaned the lens (the most common problem), you also might have dust down inside the assembly. Try blowing with the air nozzle down inside, around the gap between the lens and the cover surrounding it. Do it from at least a couple of inches away, if the air is too powerful you can damage the wiring inside the assembly.

If this fails to correct the problem, your laser output may have diminished over time and the only repair is to install a new laser assembly. The cost of this part will most likely not be worth it to you since the unit is quite old now.

You can try cleaning the laser lens.

CAUTION!! The lens is delicate! I wipe DVD lenses with ONE drop of glasses cleaner on a Q-tip and, starting in the center, wipe in circles to the outside. Do not press down! Do not force the lens side to side. It will move while cleaning but don't put more pressure than needed to move the lens 3/4 way down!
Its a cheap test to see if there is a fingerprint on the lens. (You won't be able to see it - does not take much)
If this does not help, it means it needs a laser or worse. Probably just replace the player.

Can I connect my to iPod Classic to watch video on Sony DVP-FX970 Portable DVD player? If so, what connection do I need?


The DVP-FX970 uses a composite (3xRCA) to mini-AV (2x mini-plugs) reducing cable. This is Sony part 9-885-103-56 and was included with the DVD player in the original packaging. See https://sony.encompass.com/item/7054170/Sony/9-885-103-56/Av_Cable_(010-0001-206) . Other vendors may also have the cable. You will also need an RCA (3xF) coupler, see http://www.cablestogo.com/product/40647/composite-video-stereo-audio-f-f-coupler-taa-compliant for one option. Connect the composite end of the above cable to one side of the coupler and the other side to the DVD player. Next connect the appropriate iPod Classic video dock, https://www.apple.com/shop/product/MC748AM/A/apple-composite-av-cable , to the other side of the coupler and the iPod Classic. Now, turn on everything and press the Input Select button for the DVD player multiple times until the current input is 'Line In'.

I hope this helps.
