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

now a days we can't sourly say that, the new electronic equipments will work for along time. you have mentioned that ur dvd player has no problem for the last 3 years. its very good.
from ur narration i think ur dvd players power supply have some problem. may it will the only problem. just try to service it. may work for the comming three years.
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
While stopped and “DVD/CD” is the source, press and hold [∫] on the main unit and [S10] on the
remote control until “Initialized” disappears from the television. Turn the unit off and on again.
All settings will return to the default values.
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.
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).
