Question about Pioneer DVL-919 DVD Player

1 Answer

LD Repeats itself every 15 seconds in play, DVD's play fine.

The LD play mode of Large Disks plays well for 15 - 20 seconds and the repeats the same signal. Sometimes it does this for 4 - 10 repeats and moves on for 40-60 seconds snd starts repeating again.

However, on DVD play, it works fine.

Any suggestions??? Thank you

    My DVL-919 repeats itself but it appears to be at random.
    It repeats about 10 to 30 seconds of a scene at any point during play back. So I would have to press the "FORWARD" button to go past that point to prevent this scene from repeating but then it will repeat at another random point during playback.
    Although I purchased my DVL-919 several years ago, I've really haven't used it much. I have another model Laser Disc player which is my work horse. I only use the DVL-919 for my special select movies which are very few. Could this be some type of "FIRMWARE" glitch? I took the cover off just to observe the operation. Should I lube the rail on which the laser pick-up head rides on? Perhaps the rails need lubrication? I see that the laser pick-up head travels alot from "SIDE A" to "SIDE B".
    Could the lack of lubrication on the rails be causing binding on the travel of the laser pick-up head?
    Need help A.S.A.P.

This solution should help or at least decrease the occurances.
It has worked for me.
The problem seems to be that the original manufacturer lubrication on the glide rails and on the glide track has lost it's viscosity causing the Laser Pick-up Head gliding process to bind causing video to repeat at any random binding point.
Open the top cover and play a Laser Disc.
Manually change from Side "A" to Side "B".
Observe how the Laser Pick-up Head glides on the track and on the glide rail.
Stop play mode and remove the Laser Disc.
With the tray open, unplug the power at the power electrical cord. Now with the power removed and the tray left open, take a "Q-Tip"™ and spray some ""WD-40"­™ on the "Q-Tip"™.
Now gently tap the saturated "Q-Tip"™ along the full length of both the upper and bottom glide rails as well as the glide tracks.
Repeat this process.
Be careful not to touch or lube the Laser Pick-up Head with the "Q-Tip"™.
If you do touch the Laser Pick-up Head, just gently clean it with another "Q-Tip"™ saturated with alcohol.
When finished, reconnect the power and play a Laser Disc.
Manually change From "SIDE "A" to SIDE "B" about three times to spread the "WD-40"™ evenly and ease the gliding process.
This solution should help.

    Wow, thanks! My DVL-919 had the same problem. Lubricating it worked! Never would have figured that one out. Read about an 909 with the same problem also. Must be a weakness.

Hi,

Try checking the playback options or options itself. Check if it is in REPEAT ONE mode. If it is, please change it to REPEAT ALL. And try to look for a CURVED ARROW PONTING TO THE LEFT WITH NUMBER ICON on your Player, if there is, REPEAT ONE MODE is activated.


Cheers!

Is this happening with commercial dvds or disks that you've burned? If it's happening with commercial disks, I would suggest trying the player on a different TV to see if the same thing happens. If it does, something is wrong with the player.

The warranty on the player is 90 days from the date of purchase. A receipt is required for warranty exchange.
