Question about Sony DAV-SC8 System

Open Question

Sony Compact AV System DAV-SC8

I have loaded a music CD into the above unit but I am now unable to reject it. I have experienced this problem before and did manage to release the CD after a lot of button pressing. This time I cannot get it to reject. Can anyone suggest how I can release the CD from the drive. I have tried everything in the manual including powering down and up but it still refuses to reject. The drive has only been used once before as I have an alternative DVD player which I tend to use most of the time

SOURCE: SONY DAV - S880 compact AV system

Sony.com may have a pdf downloadable manual available on line.
The standard way to connect Audio from a Receiver to a TV is to send a signal from the Tape outputs (RED & WHITE) on receiver via RCA cable to a Aux input (RED & WHITE) on the TV. Likewise, sending a Video signal from a receiver to a TV, is via a Co-Axial RCA cable , using a Video Out (YELLOW) on the receiver to a Aux Video Input (YELLOW) on the TV. An S-Video cable can also be used (in leu of yellow RCA cable) if available on both Receiver & TV.

SOURCE: Can Anyone Help me!

Hi there
you can connect this system to your computer in multiple ways. But how you do so depends on what your computer has. If your PC has RCA connections on it then that would be the simplest way but this would leave you with stereo sound. If you have a digital decoder in your computer and a optical out then i would suggest using that. A Optical cable is quite inexpensive and can be bought from pretty much any decent A/V shop. 
If you can let me know the model of you PC i can give you exact directions but dont be afraid to play around yourself. I only suggest that you do so carefully.
hope this helps.

Generally speaking, an amp attempts to protect itself from heat, shorts, overloads and operator exuberance by refusing to turn on or stay on.

Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output or marginally low impedance loading by the speakers; and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.

You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.

If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.

If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'nekkid'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced and competent hands-on tech.

Check for loose speaker connections at the speaker as another possible root cause for intermittent shutdown

Sony DAV-SC8. I'm suddenly getting distortion


It sounds like the speakers themselves are the problem rather than the amp.
Although, it would be rare to have overdriven/blown the surrounds.
My suggestion would be to isolate which speakers or channels (on Amp) are at fault.
Swap left and right to see if the problem transfers across.

Disk Stuck In DVD Machine.


Hi, You need to open the machine or at least the top cover and manually extract the CD. Under the cover and on top of the loading tray is a retaining bar held by 2-4 screws. Removing these would allow you to lift the bar and remove the CD easily. In some models/version, there might be an electronic board partially covering the tray assembly. This type of problem happens when the CD is defective, was not loaded properly, or more than 1 is inside. In some cases, it is the loading mechanism that is at fault. Still in some other models/version there is an access/pin hole below the try at the faceplate where you need to insert a straightened metal paper clip to manually push out the tray. Of course the standard precautions apply, power down, remove from the mains. If you are not comfortable on do-it-yourself, maybe you should seek the services of a qualified professional. good luck and kind regards.
