How do i program my sony dvd player dvp.sr200p to work on my philips tv


No special programming is required. Connect the DVD player to the TV using an HDMI cable. Note which input jack you used on the TV (example: HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, etc.) Turn on the DVD player and insert a DVD disc and play it. Turn on the TV and select the input you used to connect the DVD player (example: HDMI 1 or HDMI 2, etc.). You should now see and hear the DVD disc playing. Most settings are pre-set at the factory so everything will work without adjustment. However, both the DVD player and the TV have a Menu where you can adjust settings for picture, sound, etc. if desired.

  • There may be DVD region limitations on your device, and you use a DVD disc that is not listed in your device.
  • It may also be the vendor of your brand DVD disc, including those that are not recommended.
  • The format of the files on your DVD disc, does not support.
  • Disc Optic is dirty / dusty. Clean it.
  • Disc is scratched.
  • Damage to the disc player.

My dvd player (Sony dav s500 system) kept freezing and now always says"disc is dirty" and wont play. Can I connect another dvd player to the system? How would I connect the 6 speaker cables into the new...


Umm, this isn't just a DVD player, It.s an amplifyer too. Just leave the speaker cables alone, plug in the new dvd player into the "video2" jack, yellow cable onlt. Then,plug the audio cables into the video2 jacs (the red and white ones). Select "video2" on the SonyDAVS300 and "video2" on the tv. Insert the dvd into the new player and enjoy. It's screwy but it works through the amp and sends the picture to the tv.

Problems with playing discs


There are several causes for this problem.

1) Faulty DVD drive. Most drives have a dual laser, one for CD, and one for DVD. Check the player with both CD, and DVD. If it reads one and not the other, then it is most certainly a faulty laser. The laser assembly or whole mechanism will need changing.

2) Dirty or dusty lens. If the unit is kept in a dust environment, dust and dirt can be drawn into the machine by the fan. Try using a DVD lens cleaner. If this doesn't work try a CD lens cleaner. (Dual laser - see 1))

3) Condensation. Condensation can build up on the laser lens if the unit is kept in a humid environment. Also, this can be caused by a cold environment. In this case, condensation forms as the unit warms up. In either case, leave the unit in a warm dry environment for an hour.

NO DISC ERROR


Sounds like a dirty or failed laser or DVD mechanism /drive.

Try a DVD/CD lens cleaner (must say both). If you can, try wet & dry version with alcohol based cleaner - Alsop are a good brand.

If this doesn't work, the drive has likely failed. Its unlikely to be economical to repair - but you could always connect a cheap DVD player to the Sony system - the sony system can then continue to provide surround sound audio, whilst the cheap DVD player plays the discs!

Otherwise - sell the system as separate parts (speakers, remote, cables, DVD player) as someone is bound to be desparate for the speaker set on its own to complete a system and will often pay more!

No Disc


Stumpy, I think the first step could be to find out between the DVD player and the disc which one has a problem.If the DVD Player is able to play other discs then it is possible the problem is with the disc only. If that disc can be played quite alright in other DVD players then the problem is with your DVD Player. I suggest you trial that first. I think the indication of " No disc insert disc" could be that your DVD Player is failing to load or read the disc either because the disc has some scratches or because your DVD Player lens are not powerful enough. I am, Letsthank.
