Question about Sony DAV-SC5 System
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?

The resistor solution worked a treat, well worth trying.

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.
