The DVD suddenly stops playing or hangs while using it. In an attempt to fix it, I turned it off then turned it on again. The screen then showed "wrong disc display". I tried other DVDs but it kept showing the same prompt, until now.

HI,. this is a lens assembly fault. the lens is malfunctioning or, it may have stopped reading. this wrong disc code is just a universal warning that is concerning a fault if the main boarddoesn'treceive any data(audio,video) when the disc is inserted.
Due to the integrated status of your unit, this will be a costly repair because, the entire assembly is combined together with the vcr section as well.
You will need to replace the entire assembly to fix this issue. the lens has burned out.
you can confirm my diagnosis by preforming a cleaning of the lens with a cleaning disc. if the unit continues to not read or play a CD after the cleaning, this will confirm my diagnosis.
I had the same "Cannot play" problem - happened suddenly, I don't think I was doing anything unruly at the time.
After checking repair (exchange) prices in excess of $250 from Sony, I decided to open the cover to see if I could see anything wrong - normally a futile exercise with electronics except that in the past I have cleared errant disks that have lodged themselves near the drive/player at the rear of the library.
Upon opening and watching the library try to load and play I noticed the drive itself was not spinning the disk once loaded. It would sit for awhile, thinking about it I'm sure, then would unload and load the next dvd, again failing to spin.
I thought okay, maybe try to spin the dvd while in the player to see if it's jammed or otherwise hard to turn. It was not hard to turn and spun freely. In fact, when I put my finger through the hole at the exposed side of the player at the hub to spin the dvd, clockwise, it suddenly started to spin - and play!
I put the whole thing back together to test and all seems to be working fine at this point. Not sure what would cause the motor to stop spinning and remain in that state through poweroff/on cycles etc. but I'm sure this is not the last time I will have trouble of this kind.
I would note that when replacing the library back in its home on the shelf, be careful not to tip the library, especially toward the player area because the disks will spill out of the carousel near the player and become jammed when you power it on and attempt to load. A final tip of the library away from the player area may clear this if you hear the disks rolling out of their slots and you don't want to open the top again (it's a darned heavy box when fully loaded).
Thats bad..Did you try another disc? If this happens even with a different disc. You will need to get a lens cleaner(costs about 5$) and try cleaning the lens. If it still doesn't work then you will have to replace the lens. The reason why it died suddenly is probably because the lens circuitry somehow got shorted. Try cleaning and if not.. replace.
I have found several of these that have had that problem and the ones i repaired had the same problem the power had failed to the laser eye. it was a different fix for each but that was the basic answer you can take it apart if its not under warrenty and look at the power board look for burnt resistors they turn black, or darker brown spots on the board. one did have the motor that controlled the eye bad the eye would not move.
I have a similar problem. After a seemingly random length of time, the counter on the display freezes and I cannot pause, stop or eject the DVD. I can change volume, change function, etc but nothing useful. The only way I can get the disc out it to turn the whole thing off and then back on. Sometimes even this doesn't work first time...
I went to a Sony shop and they said I could have it looked at, but they charge £45 just to have a look! Not sure it's worth it as I only paid a little over £200 for it.
