Is it possible to use the speaker system on a different DVD player?
I am looking to replace my DVD player, the DAV-BC150 because the 5 disc changer gets stuck too much. I want to know what to look for on products to know that I can connect the 5 speaker system to the new DVD player for the tv.
I hope I asked that right. Thanks!

I believe I understand what you're asking here. To the best of my knowledge sony puts a special type of connector on the reciever end of the speaker wire which will probably not be compatible with any other reciever brand. Depending on the age of your system, the speakers may not even be compatible with the new Sony models. Wait...there's good news though. Whatever reciever/DVD player you decide on, there will surely be speaker outputs and if you snip of the Sony connector and strip the wire a bit, you shouldn't have a problem.
A couple of other things to consider though...
A conventional standalone DVD player may not have outputs for five speakers and a sub. That sounds more like a dedicated reciever.
I have a crazy suggestion but you might save yourself some money and trouble.
-If you are satisfied with the speaker portion of your current system, buy a cheap DVD player, run the video out to the TV, the audio out to the AUX audio in on your current system and use it for sound only.
Hope something in here helps.

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.
You need 5 Cord (wires) Connection to attache all speakers. You can have all 5 cords in one package or each cord individually at Sony Accessories. Please write model number DAV-FR1 in search box to get result on above web page.

Given how close to the warranty termination the problem occurred, I would call Sony and request warranty service. You should speak to a supervisor who will have the power to grant that concession. If that fails, open up the unit and clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. That may resolve it. Otherwise, the optics assembly will need to be replaced. I think that model uses a KHS-240. I can look that up if it comes to that though.
Keep us posted.
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!
are you using discs with labels that you out on your self? I had a similar problem before and my label peeled off in the player causing it to get stuck., you might just have to take it apart, and get the label out.
