Question about Home Theater Systems

1 Answer

Sony Home Theater 5 DVD changer, was dropped in transit

Its SONY AVD-K800P - 05 Disk DVD changer & Home Theater (around 4 years old)

It does not start-up, a message 'PROTECT' comes on he screen and it shuts down.
I have disconnected all speakers, still It does not pass the Power on Test and it 'shuts down'.
I suspect a physical damage in the DVD mechanism, How can I disable the DVD Changer and use only the AMP & Speakers with an external DVD player?



Thanks
Anura

If you know how to open it, remove the top cover( a couple of screws on the rear) and remove two connectors, one being a ribbon cable and the other a multiple wire connector. If it still does the protect, then it is not from the dvd mechanism but a fault on the board.

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.

You may want to try lubricating the spindle motor (that spins the disc). A couple of drops into the holes on the bottom of the motor. It could also be a cracked drive gear.
