Remove top of unit(make sure it is unplugged) Move laser on track to where it is visible. Clean lens with isopropyl alcohol or acetone. if there is no change, the chances are that there is an smd fuse that is open on the AtoD board. the consumer cannot access this component. Many times this smd fuse opens due to leaky smd capacitors. Unfortuneately many of these units end up in the sony boneyard in the sky. Scrivitron

No disc message

1 - Try a different disc.
Either works, or not.
If works, problem original non-playng disc.
If not working, problem is player (or another faulty disc).

2. If player is problem:
Try using a 'head-cleaner' disc (from store).
These usually play whilst cleaning.
If no play - problem is 'read head' in player.
If it plays, then try ( a known good - works in another machine), disc.
3. If 'read head' is faulty, you need a techy to replace, or throw it away, buy a new one (more likely).

Hook up new blueray thru old home theater system

Yes you can. If you have more than 1 HDMI sources and your old system only has 1 HDMI in, you may want to invest in an HDMI switch. They are inexpensive (under $20 on Amazon) and let you choose 4 HDMI sources to feed your system. The audio is embedded in HDMI and you may have to select the choices (surround versus stereo) when you play the disc.

My sony DBP 300 is not playng the Disc . It plays the beginng of the disc but seems to freeze and we are unable to play the blu ray disc movie

Try selecting another disc to play, if the next disc plays, it may be the first disc that will not play, also make sure that it is not a 'burnt' copy, if it is....the copyrights may have prevented it from the format being proper. if second movie does not play, it may be the reader inside is dusty/damaged. Also look at dvd disc to make sure it is not smudged/scratched or dirty. take appropriate cleaning measure if it is smudged or dirty,

It won't spin the disc when inserted. Removed top and on occasion can manually spin it and it will start

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

No audio

It's your 'scart lead'. It's either come lose at your TV or player, if not buy a new one, they are cheap enough.

My DVD player has worked excellently for almost 10 years. Uncertain if that's the problem. All the buttons on the remote and on the front panel seem to respond--one way or another. This is a Sony CD/D

by a new player i recomend sony,there still the best. dont waste your money on blue ray,they will be obsolete in five years and they are very slow,ie. loading and reading discs, i know i sell them

No finalizing dvd disc

Did you check to see whether the other player will play that type of disc?

Recording on Samsung VR375

Sony is not a good brand for buying DVD's. One option for you with the sony discs will be to try it in a computer and see whether it reads the disc. Also you can try using formatting using a software program like nero and see whether the samsung can recognize the disc.
Next time buy good quality discs...look up some reviews on the net.
