There are four functions: Video 1, Video 2, Tuner and DVD.
When we switch to the DVD function nothing happens. When it used to read the DVD and the display screen would say 'Ready!' or 'Reading' or 'Eject' there is nothing. It is completely blank. The screen is also blank. There is a DVD in Disc3 right now that we can't get out. The system does not respond to anything that has to do with the DVD function.
Also, when we try and shut it down it just flashes 'Standby' and never shuts off. I left it like that for two days when I went somewhere overnight to see if it would eventually shut down but it was still flashing 'Standby' when I came back. The only way to turn it back on after that is to unplug it and wait a few moments before plugging it back in.
Video 1, Video 2 and Tuner are all working perfectly. I have no idea what is wrong with it since it has sat on the shelf and never moved since I bought it... Someone help?
Had exactly the same problem after I had the unit about one year, fixed under warranty, then the problem recurred about a year later. Found this tip on another message board " If you solder a resistor of 820ohms between pin 203 of IC206 to the 3.3V line your'e problem is gone." Tried it & to my surprise it worked, a $0.06 part, Sony should have recalled this product. FYI, IC206 is on the lower of the two PCBs in the back left corner.

I think there is a switching problem in the surround receiver. I would take the receiver to a qualified servicer. There is nothing user serviceable in the unit. Question .Why are you using optical output from ps3. I recommend you connect all you a/v devised to the tv. Then connect the opt out of tv to receiver. that way what ever you are viewing will send audio via opt out of tv to receiver. that way you do not have to switch input on receiver. Hope this helps.
From experience, I suspect that the dish has lost it's optimum "focus" on the satellites, and your signal has dropped. In your case, tuner #2 just happens to need a little more signal than tuner #1 - and that's revealing the root problem.
If you can have a second person handy, use the signal meter function and view the signal. Then one person should move the dish a bit (likely upward a hair). If the signal goes up with just the slight movement of the still tight dish, that's the problem.
Your TV's tuner is the problem. 1st thing to try is just to
sesolder its connections to the main circuit board. If that
doesn't work replace the tuner. Also could put a meter on the
power coming into the tuner and see if it is drooping in sync with your
picture. Tuners are not that expensive to replace.
There are positions on the rotary switch that determine whether you're
on the hard-drive or the mini-DVD functions. There's even a small
switch (to the lower left of the rotary dial) that keeps you from
accidentally switching to the DVD functions.
Make sure you're dial is all the way to the left and reads "DVD".
Once you're set on that, the disc eject button should work.
