When I turn on the DAV-C450 and try to open any of the discs (1-5) there is a little noise,but the changer never opens. I'm also unable to find a DVD that was in disc 2 slot. I've taken the case apart and looked for the disc, but don't see a thing. I've turned it off and on with no difference.
Are you using discs with labels that you out on your self? I had a similar problem before and my label peeled off in the player causing it to get stuck., you might just have to take it apart, and get the label out.

your two options would be to remove the cover and disk tray and than remove the disk while nothing is in your way your other option would be to pry it open using a flathead screwdriver which could damage the tray motor and gears neither is suggested if the item is still under warranty or you lack general assembly skills
Now this is for the Sony DAV-450. If that is not your unit may I get the right make and model #.
1) Go into the services menu by A) - Turn your C450 on with no disc inside.
B) - (ON THE EQUIPMENT NOT ON REMOTE) Press and hold both the Display and Stop keys while turning the volume control to the right. When your TV screen fickle, release the buttons. You should be seeing the Service Menu now.
This should be fairly easy. I got to this step without any troubles.
2) Instead of buying their remote control I used my PALM with OmniRemote (http://www.pacificneotek.com/software/OmniRemote.zip) and Sony_DVD_hack.pdb (http://dev0_2000.tripod.com/).
3) I send numbers 1 to 5 with the PALM as suggested and tried it a number of ways such as sending 1,1 2,2 3,3 etc. I did NOT see any "data reset" or anything else displayed on the screen as reported in the forums elsewhere. That's why I kept on trying for about an hour with various codes and just as I was about to give up, lo and behold, I tried playing a region 1 DVD and it WORKED. The morale of the story is that keep a bunch of DVDs (with various codes) handy and try it out.
While pressing the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 I did not notice anything unusual except button 2 would put the display into some kind of toggle mode but probably it is irrelevent and safe to ignore.

This is an easy fix. All you need to get is a CD/DVD-Player Laser-Lens Cleaner for about $5.00. You can get these at Best Buy, Circuit City, Radio Shack, or any similar place.
Use this, and let me know how it works for you.
