Re: DVD'S hang up

The (ziva-5) DVD processor IC in these units is frequently faulty. There's lots of similar complaints on message boaards all over. I had similar problems, had my unit repaired under warranty & problems returned about a year later. Eventually the DVD function stops working altogether & you can't shut even the unit down without a hard reset. Found the following tip "Solder a resistor of 820ohms between pin 203 of IC206". Reamrkably it works. If you're not game to do it yourself, get a technician to do it, cheap fix.

Re: DVD'S hang up

I have a similar problem.  After a seemingly random length of time, the counter on the display freezes and I cannot pause, stop or eject the DVD.  I can change volume, change function, etc but nothing useful.  The only way I can get the disc out it to turn the whole thing off and then back on.  Sometimes even this doesn't work first time...

I went to a Sony shop and they said I could have it looked at, but they charge £45 just to have a look!  Not sure it's worth it as I only paid a little over £200 for it.

It wont play dvds!!! Help!!! Panasonic SC-HT520

You can try a CD/DVD Cleaner Disk ($3-$5). Some sell for $15, don't know if you'll get better results. If it doesn't work, then you have a laser alignment issue that needs calibrating. The labor is likely to cost more than a new DVD player.

Sa-mt1, picture freeze after ab 50 min-1h,than stops;

First of all,if you are using rental dvds, there might be scratch which your dvd player might have an issue to read it;however,if you have tried many dvds in this player and you are having this issue, it is time to move on to another dvd player.
I recommend a Pioneer dvd player.

My DVD player no longer plays original dvd's - only copied dvd's

some times when you create DVD movies by high speed DVD writers, your data cannot be read by dvd player with high performance. it s due to speed mismatching. always write DVDs with Normal speed in order to use with DVD players. while in case oof PC-DVD -Rom it does not happens. it can read any high speed wriiten DVDs. DVD-Rom in PC are more precise than DVD players. Some times Weak DVD player Lens system can also mis read.

DVDs & CDs will not play

If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
