I have managed to locate a new laser unit for my DAV-S400 which I need to fit (due to the old hybrid SACD playback problem). Does anybody have any experience in doing this? Is it fairly easy? Any advice, instructions would be gratefully received !

NITIAL FAULT IS ERROR CODE DUE TO WORN BLACK DRUM GIVING PATCHY IMAGE, ON FITTING A NEW DRUM IT CREATES ANOTHER ERROR CODE ABOVE E020, ON RE-FITTING OLD ONE ERROR DISAPPEARS. PATCH CREATED ON ITB IS UNDERTONED DUE TO LESS INTENSITY LASER BEAM PASSING THRO, THE RESIDUE ON THE GLASS, HENCE E020-0023.
THE CLEANING TOOL ON THE DOOR IS INADEQUATE TO CLEAN THIS RESIDUE. PULL OUT PROCESS UNIT TO MAX. LIMIT. PRISE UP THE DUST SHUTTER, THEN CLEAN WITH DAMP WIPE AND DRY IT. REPEAT IF NECESSARY OR TAKE LASER UNIT OUT
Hello You may have its user manual with you now I assumes. The page describes the format of recordings the set can play. The other formats cannot play with this set.Refer to the manual. If the set do not detect disc that has been payed well before, the Laser Pickup Unit, along with it connecting strip [the strip wire connected to aser pickup unit to main baord] need to be replaced. Just replace the strip wire first. If it does not help you replace the laser pickup unit. Soney will have special type of laser pickup units. The number to the unit is important to note when you buy a new one. It will be best to get this set repaired by Authorised Service Center for Sony at your town. OK.
hi, just purchase a lance cleaning cd. It will be available in cd shops. insert it in the player. it will clean the lance. after cleaning insert the hybrid SACDs and watch is it reading. If not then the laser pickup unit of you player have some problem. You have to relapse the same. ok
Skipping of all types of discs, whethere it is old or new, is due the Laser Pickup Unit problem and is common to all CD playeres whatever brand it may be. Your Sony has also this proble. There is no other way than replace the Laser Pickup Unit with same type and number. Insist on same type and number, since Sony uses special number and type. OK.
hello have you tried a cd cleaner if that don't work then you can do it by hand take the top off the cd player you should see the laser unit on top of the laser unit you should see 2 screws take these out take the top off the unit you should see the laser eye get a cotton wool pud and nail varnish remover and wipe the laser eye good luck
not unless there is a vga connection or a s video connection on the unit. if so s video cable male to male should work then you have to go into the video card settings on the laptop by right clicking the desktop and selecting porpeties. then adjust settings to transfer image from laptop to tv
Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....
Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
