Player won't recognise SACD layer if disc is hybrid

I have owned a Sony SCD-XE597 SACD player for one year. Since a few days the player would only play the CD-layer of a hybrid disc even though it is set to play the SACD 2-ch layer when available. Trying to switch manually does not help since the display shows "not hybrid". I thought the SACD pick-up was malfunctioning so, to be sure, I tried feeding the player a single-layer SACD and it works!!! Back to hybrid, no luck. Any ideas before I go to have it repaired? Thanks,

I had this problem also, after having my DVP-s900 stored for a few years, put a SACD in the player, press the Audio Direct button on the player(not on remote). This will turn the video on.

The sacd player was working fine. But now will not play them. Using optical for sound hdmi for video. Played around with different settings but will only read the cd portion of the sacd. Any ideas? like i...

Your PS3 may actually be playing the SACD layer but if you're listering through optical you're not going to get any better sound quality than CD.

For stereo SACD quality you can use the analog outputs; for multichannel SACD quality you'll need to use HDMI.

See the PS3 SACD FAQ.

What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD player SACD to a Denon AVR 2105 Receiver. I thought the optical input would be best but according to a web posting, toslink does not support SACD

That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.
