System not starting properly

I have been noticing freezes lately when I am playing a DVD. When this happens, the DVD freezes and all functions on the remote as well as the player are lost. I would turn off the power manually and wait for some time to pass. Most of the time, this fixes the problem. Sometimes, when I turn back on the player I would see some gibberish (like a half lit display showing some ?matrix? style letters) on the display and the player does not start up properly. When this happens, I would allow for more time for the player to be turned off and it does the trick until now. The last time the player froze, it was about 3 days ago. And every time I have tried to turn it back on, I would get the same gibberish on the display and the player is non-responsive to any command. It has never taken this long before for the player to return to normal. Do you think this is an overheating issue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Re: System not starting properly

I had the same issue... SOLVED
If you switch on the system touch the low-frequency caps (3200 uF (25V)) you will notice the caps are hot. This is caused by the age of the system because the cap's electrolyte is aged and caps loose insulating and start being utilizator. In this case all the egress 6V stadium is overloaded and the IC (7806) overheat.
In my case one of the caps was unsoldered... (extracurrent/heat???) so I have replaced the caps and mounted a little fan (12V - 6cm x 0.8 cm) in the case just near 7806 heatsink, this fan pull the hot air from the chassis ant put it out.
Now the system seems running well.

Sorry for my poor english

Dvd pauses

mY DAV-C770 has the exact same problem ...when watching a movie it will intermittently pause or freeze ...then continue. It will do this 20 or 30 times throughout a movie. I asked a tech at Sony for help and he told me the laser reader is out of alignment. The minimum amount to have the dvd player sent out and repaired is $200.00, and thats if it does not require any parts. with a new laser reader it will be about $400.00. Almost the same price as a new dream system. Not worth fixing. I used to think really highly of Sony - until now. Jackal
