Re: sony player dvp-cx850d won't read cd or dvds. need to...
This is not a problem that a reset will resolve. If you can gain access to the lens, try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, the spindle motor may be defective. This is the motor that turns the disc. Once a disc is recognized as being loaded, the disc is spun up. If it does not get to speed fast enough, it will fail to read.
The bottom line is that without seeing the unit, I can not state exactly which scenerio you have here.
If the cleaning does not resolve the problem, I would suggest you request a detailed estimate from an authorized Sony service center.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.
Hello, This DVD player unfortunately does not support most of the Copied DVD /CDs. it works stemless with only genuine / original CD and DVDs.. If your DVD or CD originallly recorded by manufacturers but still can not read , than I recommend you to obtain and apply it to clean your laser eye of the DVD player. Hope it will solve your problem. Please remembr to vote me too.. Regards Compatible disc formats: DVD, CD, CDR, CDRW, Video CD
After variety of different tests and findings I have resolved this issue. It appears that the DVD burner was not in good working order and the DVD player was not at fault. Thanks you to all who answered and responded to my problem. Many thanks.

The second problem is related with factory locked multizone feature.. on the rear of the player will be a region code plate with a picture of a globe and a number next to it.If you DVD disc does not have the same ZONE number ,it wont work. But in order to convert your DVD to a multizone you need to make some additional adjustment. Hope it will solve your problem.otherwise ask me to give you more on unlocking multizone feature. Please remember to vote me too.. Regards
