Sony DAV-SC5 Home Theatre System problem playing CD-RW's

Hi. When i play CD-RW's on my Sony Home Theatre system, it plays fine until it gets to about the 6th track, when it gets stuck. You can hear it trying to read/play the disk, but it can't. It won't play any subsequent tracks. I then have to power the system off to stop it trying to read/play the song. It does this with every CD-RW i play, at track 6 or so. The CD-RW's play fine on my other stereo. Very strange!!

    In response to your answer Arpi- the laser was replaced only a year or so ago when it failed. It plays DVD's fine & normal cd's, so i don't think it'll be related to the optical? I can try cleaning it though. Thanks

Hello, your home theatre system is from the year 2003. Maybe a cleaning the optical can solve the problem. There are cleaning CD kits on the market, but better option is if a pro does it (the cleaning) for you. If you need more assistance please advice. Arpi

Sony Model DAV ? SB 500W Home Theatre System

Please check at rear of TV for Digital Optical IN port as home theater should have optical out port at rear. If you got any optical in port in TV, just connect optical wire between TV and home theater.

2nd option is check Line Out pins at rear of home theater system, if found, hook red-white RCA cable there and put it to same input in TV where you hooked Video (composite or component) cable.

Let me know the results to help you more.
