Question about Sony DAV-C770 System

Won't read dvd's or anything, just says mechanics error

It says ready! and I put a dvd in and it doesn't read. It just spins, or sounds like it anyway lol, And then it tries to reload the dvd in I guess. I put a disc in Disc 1 slot, and it spins, doesn't read, then the display says *Disc 1* which is what it says when you load a disc in, so I have no idea what's going on, it worked yesterday, but now it won't read anything, not cd's and not dvd's. After about 10 minutes it will say *Mechanics Error* Is it time to just give in a buy a new one?

Bose 321 II dvd drawer won't open, fixes here & elsewhere not working. I put in a recorded dvd. It tried to read it, & never gave me the not supported msg as I started trying to eject it...


Hi Donna,

Please do be frustated.

Your lovely Bose has problem with its mechanism that cause load / unload totally out of order. If you hear some noise while you turn on the bose or when you hit some buttons, it is telling us the motor still work. Now we need to check the broken gears ( or other mechanism linkage).
If you able assemble this Bose, go ahead to find and fix it mehanism ( you may need some parts replacement.

Note : Be carefully with its laser lens while power on ( avoid direct contact to your eyes).

Best luck,

Jay

Spindle motor is located in middle of dvd mechanism that holds and spins disc.
If that does not solve your problem, replace optical block.
Let me know if you need optical block part number.
Thanks.

The dvds are not detected - No Disc or Disc Error


Hi. These steps should help.
  1. Check the disc you're using for scratches and dirt. If the disc is damaged it won’t play properly, regardless of the DVD player’s ability to function. You can use a DVD repair device like the "Disc Doctor" to repair the DVD or purchase a new DVD.
  2. Make sure the discs you're using fit the correct format specified by your DVD player. For example, if your DVD player doesn’t support home-burned DVD-R's, then you can’t use a DVD that you made at home. You may need to upgrade to a newer model, most of which accept the latest DVD formats.
  3. Clean the laser lens with a DVD laser lens cleaning disc. DVD laser lens cleaning discs can be purchased at most electronics retailers or online. Insert the laser lens cleaning disc and follow the instructions.
  4. Insert a correctly-formatted, undamaged disc into your player. Listen to see if it begins to read the disc. If it continues to make no sound and gives you the same message, then the problem is probably that your disc is not spinning in the device.
  5. Turn the device off and unplug it. Take off the outer casing by removing the three or four screws and lifting the top piece off. This will allow you to see if anything is simply stuck or jammed. If this is the case, a simple nudge back to the correct position will fix the problem.
  6. Clean the lens while the DVD player is open. A dirty lens is most likely the cause of your no-disc error. The lens should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab.
  7. Take your DVD player to have it professionally fixed only when none of these other solutions solves the problem. A professional repair technician will be able to tell you if fixing your DVD player is worth the money.

Place DVD in any slot and it says "reading disc" then "no disc"


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD lens, or the whole drive unit.

DVD Player Error Message


I have this problem.. I put in a DVD that I know it has read ok before. But, now it takes a long time trying to load and then it just stops trying and returns 'NO DISK" So, I opened it up and watched it try to load. The motor on the DVD drive was struggling and couldnt keep the disk spinning a the correct speeds. Now, I am looking for a drive replacement. I hope this helps.

DVD PLAYER WILL NOT SPIN


Sounds like the disc transport(motor) or controller may be bad.
After the standard of unplug, wait, and try again, I think contacting a reputable repair center would be the next logical step.
Cost may outpace the value of the player, as many repair facilities want $60,00 as a base fee + parts. How much would it cost to replace the DVD player? >Costs have come down for all but the most esoteric models.

Go into the setup for your system and change the 'video' options from "adjust to fit" to "original". worked for me anyway.
