Question about Sony DAV-FC7 System

Sony DAV FC7 Stops Playing

The DVD player won't play through a complete DVD - it will stop part way through and freeze. The only way to get the system working again is to shut it off an start up again. Then it will play for another 1/2 hour or so and stop again. All other functions work fine. I have cleaned the fan and dusted inside, all of the DVDs have been cleaned and I have purchased a DVD cleaner that made no improvement. Any other suggestions?

Sony dav dz100. Disc does not spin.

Please put few drops of WD-40 on spindle motor shaft that sound not spin smoothly.
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.

Sony DAV-FC7 squeals

I had the same problem....but it kept taking longer and longer for it to quiet down, then eventually it just kept whining and I couldn't take it anymore...I had to stop using it for tv and only used it for DVDs (it didn't whine on the dvd function). I was going to get rid of the unit because my old tv died and I had to buy a new flat screen high-def unit, which needs a surround system to do it justice. I then noticed the digital optical connection on the Sony DAV-FC7 as well as my new Direct TV HD-DVR. I bought the optical cable for about $15 and hooked it up....and voila...NO MORE WHINE! If you have the optical connection option....try that might work for you as it did for me. Good luck

DVD skips or freezes when playing and not related to a scratched or dirty DVD

I think that this is the laser unit as I have three of these units and I have swapped everything but the laser unit.

FAC-FC7 DVD player is locked and the Standby indicator flashes

I had the same problem and searched FIX and found a solution for a Phillips DVD player that worked on my Sony DAV-FC7 dvd player. Someone posted that they called their Phillips Tech Service and was told to (a) unplug the dvd unit from the wall and wait 20 seconds,then (b) press the standby+plug the unit back into the wall at the same time and hold for 10 seconds. I did this for my Sony DAV-FC7 which would not power on nor eject (just red light on). IT WORKED!! after doing these steps, my SONY powered on and the rented DVD ejected. The dvd palyer works again. Thanks fellow FIXYA "posters".

Making noise

I'd return it. If it stops after you hit the top it sounds like a mechanical problem. might be shipping damege.
