Question about Panasonic SC-HT900 System

DVD player stops frequently during playback

My DVD player keeps stopping during playback of movies and reverting back to blue setup screen. I use only commercially bought DVD's and I can see no scratches or grease marks on the DVD's, nor do they appear to be warped. Is the laser dirty? Is it time to service - or can I fix this?

Yes first try to clean the laser with a lens cleaner. If that does not work you can then try to take off the cover and clean off the lens manually with a slightly damp cotton swab and alcohol. After that turn around the swab and dry the lens with the dry side of the swab. If that doesnt work then it Probably is out of alighnment or the spindle motor is bad, and is most likly not worth the bench charge for an estimate.

My Blu ray player randomly stops playing movies but all other setting work

Have you made sure the disks are clean and have no marring on them? Blue Ray players are very sensitive to any disk issues. Also have you checked to see if any updated Firmware (the software the system uses to read the movies) has been released for the player? They constantly update the operating software of players and the way the disks are recorded, so regular updating is essential to prevent this type of problem in playback, freeze up is the most common complaint.

Avatar menu keeps poping up while the movie is playing

Make sure that the blu ray player is indicating that the latest firmware is installed on it. Press the setup button go to settings and down to version. Then record the version number. If it is the most current firmware version number after all call 800-237-4277 pressing 1 for all of the prompts. Inform the representative that with the firmware version number installed on your bluray player you are having this problem with Avatar. This helps because Sharp is
gathering information on any occurrences after an update and they are working on another update to resolve any occurrences

Compatibility issue: Sony BDPS350 Blue-ray & Yamaha RX-V1700?

HDMI compatibility issues continue to plague the industry and this more than likely is the problem. There are a couple of ways around this.Some people insist on "hot rodding" the dvd and tv by hooking up directly to each other avoiding the receiver all togeether (I do this).But you lose functionality and it makes things more complicated for other family members. Your best bet is to use RGB and Digital audio cables.You won't notice any quality loss and there is a possibility it will look better.

Onscreen angle icon cannot be disabled during layback of disc

After many long minutes of searching, I found the solution:

Depending upon your model of Pioneer player, you can switch this off in the Setup menus. Look for an entry about "Angle Indicator".

This worked for me. I had to stop the movie, go into the 'home menu' on my remote. Now I'm back to enoying Spirited Away without the annoying camera angle and blue line.

DVD Freezes during playback

it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.

Dvd troubles

Same problems with my unit.  But, try this... I think it worked.  First, you can not get to the setup screen for the unit with a DVD in the player.  So, remove the DVD first:  Unplug the unit, wait a few seconds, plug it back in.  Then hit the DVD open button and remove DVD in player. 


I think the issue with not reading certain DVDs is a problem with the "parental control" on the unit. Without setting parental control there were a few DVDs I could not play and sometimes (not always) I was asked about parental control before a movie would play.  At the Sony Blue DVD screen, select Setup on the remote control.  Select DVD setup and get to Parental control.  Set a password.  This will then take you to a "rating" screen.  By setting the rating very high (I set mine for #8) any movie should play without needing the password.  With no password set, you can not change the "rating" and hence mine was set at #1 (kids).  It seems to have worked for now anyway.  Good luck.

Techies may be right- the only way to find out is to get a cool breeze around the unit- a fan say- whilst in operation.
