I have a Sony DVP-NC600 SD/DVD player - it is about 6years old. Last night it lost the color blue - everything is now green and red. The color on the TV is fine but not the DVD player -- I tried several DVDs and it happened to all of them. Can anyone help?

If you are connected useing the component video cords (red,blue,green,red,white) it sounds as if you have the red,blue or green cords connected to the wrong color of jacks on the back of the TV or the DVD player, recheck your connections.
If all is good there, maybe one of those cords are bad?
The Sony DVP-SR200P DVD player is on the bottom end of their model line up, and you may have received a bad one right out of the box!
GOOD LUCK !!
This may be caused by one or two causes. The laser pickup assembly is bad or the most common failure for DVD and CD players is the spindle motor. This motors bushings fails over time and does not spin the disc at the right speed so the unit times out. You can repair the by purchasing what sony calles the Mech Assembly it comes with new laser and stepper motor as well as the Spindle motor.
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.
There may actually be a number of reasons that this may be occuring, and there are a couple of things that you can try in order to resolve this type of problem.
You may wish to first clean the discs being placed in the DVD tray with a soft cloth. Any kind of dirt, scratches or cracks on the disc may cause the unit to immediately reject it. Once the disc has been cleaned, try to insert it again. If the disc is rejected a second time, you may need to try a different title.
If the problem still persists with more than one disc, the manufacturer has suggested both turning the DVD player off and fully unplugging the player (power cord, other connections and all). You may wish to allow at least 1 full minute before reconnecting the player and AC adaptor, but if the problem isn't resolved after doing so you may need to contact a repair facilty for further assistance.
The tray won't open. I took top off and dvd top side holder, but the laser mechanism won't disengage so the tray will open, even with no dvd in it. How do
I reset it. I power on, hit open key, it makes hum noise then goes by to
