SOURCE: Is Sony DAV-S500 optical input compatible with optical output from Pioneer DVD player DV-566K?

I don't think this has an Optical but a Coaxial connection. You might try a coaxial audio cable not optical.

SOURCE: is it multiregional

Sony are probably the most protective manufacturer of this kind of information. All manufacturers carrying a DVD logo are obliged to say "no" but will normally intentionally leak this to boost sales, particularly in non-US areas.


But try this:

1. In order for this hack to work, you will have to send an infra-red code to your player with a OneForAll remote such as the OneForAll 6 (or URC7560) or OneForAll 4 (or URC7740) or OneForAll 4 Digital, or One For All 5 Digital (or URC 7555) with the following instructions:

  • Press the DVD button
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 5 3 3
2. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the System-Menu option 3. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the Setup option 4. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the Options option 5. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the Command-Mode option 6. On your DVD recorder, using the official Sony remote, select the DVD1 option 7. On the official Sony remote, set the DVD1 option for the Command-Mode switch, under the sliding cover 8. Verify that both the official Sony remote control and your OneForAll remote control can power off and on your DVD player 9. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 1 8 9 or 0 0 1 8 9 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 1 button once, a double LED flash should occur
10. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 2 5 5 or 0 0 2 5 5 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 2 button once, a double LED flash should occur
11. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 9 5 or 0 0 0 9 5 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 3 button once, a double LED flash should occur
12. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 2 2 1 or 0 0 2 2 1 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 4 button once, a double LED flash should occur
13. Program your OneForAll remote with the following instructions:
  • Hold down the Magic button until the unit performs a double LED flash
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 9 9 4 or 0 0 9 9 4 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the Magic button once
  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 7 9 or 0 0 0 7 9 if your remote only accepts 5 digit codes
  • Press the 5 button once, a double LED flash should occur
14. Place your DVD player into Standby mode 15. Press the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on your OneForAll remote control, in order, one at a time 16. Your DVD player should show the words TIMER OK 17. Press the buttons 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 on your OneForAll remote control, in order, one at a time 18. Your DVD player should return itself to Standby mode 19. Remove the batteries for significant period of time to wipe the programmed codes on your OneForAll remote

SOURCE: sony dav-c990 not functioning

A lot of "aged" problems relate to the power supply with this type of unit. If you are a handy chap and know what capacitors are you will find that finding and replacing the "dry" caps in the power supply will fix most problems including streaky pix and crackly audio.

SOURCE: my sony dav-s-400 system keeps activating headphone port output.

Just had and fixed the same problem that hundreds of people are suffering with this system!!
Sony DAV s400 - same problem, won't play though speakers and display indicates that headphones are plugged in - when they are not. Fairly easy to fix and took me less than an hour from start to finish:
1) Remove top cover
2) Remove circuit board that has Audio In/Out phono scockets (to get access to Amplifier Circuit Board)
3) Remove Amplifier circuit board (has the speakers attached)
4) Turn it over and remove copper heat shield
5) Resolder joints where the big brown capacitor is and where the wires go to the front headphone socket...and any other dodgy joints that you find
6) Reassemble.

When playing a DVD I get an error in the audio, as it turns automatically into headphone theater function andI don't know how to change it. Then after several minutes it changes again automatically


What does it say? I assume this is on the screen? It could be a jack issue, depending on how it's wired, but I'd guess about 10% if that. There is a display microprocessor(one of the computers in your unit) IC that controls the headphone, display and about 20 other functions(most of which are seamless to you). It could be a solder connection issue, as when a microprocessor IC goes bad, they generally don't "heal" themselves.

If you are interested in a repair, please contact me at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

Turning off


I got a DAV system that had exactly the same problem, ie. it was stuck in "headphone mode", this mode should be active when headphones are attached then it should revert to amplifier mode when the headphones are removed.
I opened the cover and removed the amplifier output board (the one where the speaker wires connect to) and soldered the following dry joints.
1) large brown capacitor on the amp output board.
2) dry joints on the rear headphone socket (the one that has the connecting lead from the front headphone socket)
3) Then one of the surround channels didn't work so I soldered further dry joints on all the coils (white vertical rectangular blocks)
I tested all surround chanels before putting the lid back on (careful, watch the mains) and found all was now working ok.

Introduction

The DVD Upgrade is an advanced modification to your DVD player, which adds extra features and enables you to get more from your machine. The upgrade supplements the DVD player and in no way harms the playback quality or removes any performance features of the machine.

Players Supported

The following DVD players are supported by this version of the DVD Upgrade:

 Sony DAV-C700
 Sony DAV-S400
 Sony DAV-S500
 Sony DAV-S800
 Sony CMT-S9D

Macrovision & CGMS disable

All DVD players have a system called Macrovision built in to the player, which is designed to stop the copying of DVD discs to video. However, this system can have adverse affects on some projectors. For this reason the DVD MOD Upgrade disables Macrovision to solve any problems.

Put your player into „Standby“ Mode and enter one of the following commands if necessary:

Remote control command Function
[0] [ENTER] Default Default region code on the player
[1] [ENTER] Region 1
[2] [ENTER] Region 2
[3] [ENTER] Region 3
[4] [ENTER] Region 4
[5] [ENTER] Region 5
[6] [ENTER] Region 6

[NEXT >>I] [ENTER] Default Disable video interference impulses (Macrovision OFF)
[Arrow left] [ENTER] Enable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions
[Arrow right] [ENTER] Default Disable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions

* The DVD can no longer prohibit you from using the fast-forward, chapter change or Audio-/Subtitle-/Angle switch. You can no longer be forced to watch intros. Just press [TITLE] or [DVD MENU] and select PLAY.

Hi i have an old sony DAV-S500 stereo system and would like to set up an ipod to play through it, How do i do this? Is it even possible?


For just listening, any audio device with a headphone/earbud output can be connected to any available analog Line Level input (except PHONO) with a simple adapter. They don't tell you that in the iPod manual because they want you to purchase expensive accessories like docking stations. You'll still have to control the music from the portable device. Oh well.

Hi,I can play a DVD disc on the system and get sound from the surround sound speakers but I can't get a picture on the tv,Sony Trinitron.The connetions are from the DAV S500:(DVD only)red and white cable...


Hi,
First try with yellow video output of DAV-S500 in yellow video TV input to get its picture. (yellow output means composite video out)
Green-Blue-Red video output is component output that will be turn on when you switch the unit into Progressive picture mode, that option would be available in Menu of DAV-S500
Hope this info will help you.
Thanks.
