Question about Pioneer XVDV830/SDV830 DVD AUDIO HTP System

1 Answer

DVD is dead

The dvd player in my unit has hasn't worked for about 2 1/2 years now. Before I get a new system, is there anything I can do to resurrect the dvd player. When you put in a dvd, it spins up for about 3-4 seconds, then the unit ejects the dvd. The unit says "Loading" while spinning up. That's all. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: DVD is dead

Wow , with the unit sitting for two years, you could have all sorts of problems now. Most likely back when the unit stopped working, the spindle motor was bad, as that was the problem on almost all of these types of CD players. Now though, if the power supply capacitors are not shot, the laser assembly could also be bad. My best advice on this unit? Can it and start out with new equipment. Good Luck

I bought my first RTD215 2 years ago but the dvd player got stuckand wont open nor play... I bought another unit same model and after 8 months the same thing happened.. the dvd player got stuck again but...

If you really like the unit (disregarding the DVD player issues), maybe you could buy a GOOD stand-alone DVD or BluRay player and be ready for an upgrade in the electronics when the bug bites.

No power to Insignia dvd player.

Pop the top of the DVD player and check the fuse. It's located right next to the AC power plug on the inside. If the fuse is OK, replace the DVD player. Repairs cost more than a new unit. Sony has DVD players from $ 40. Any repair on any device would cost more than that. If your lucky, the unit just took a surge and blew the fuse. Hope this helps

DVD Problem

Call Bose and they will send you an update CD to update the firmware of the CD/DVD player. I had a problem where a few of my new movies would not play at all. They sent me an update, no more issues. If you're a registered owner, they will send update CDs frequently, be sure you're registered as well.

How to connect other dvd or HDMI player into dav-sc5 for amblification

If your alternate DVD player has digital audio out you can make this connection via the 'optical digital in' port on the rear of the unit which corresponds to the Video 2 function. I have done this myself because the inbuilt DVD function in the Sony unit is dead (fixed once under warranty, problem recurred about a year later, same issue as other unsolved posts on this board, DVD function hangs, system won't switch off, etc. common problem with this unit, crap product).
