Question about Sony DVP-S560D

DVP-S560D will not play some dvds, C:13:00 flashes at bottom of screen

My Sony DVP-S560D DVD player will not play some of my DVDs (about 1/3 of them).  The sequence C:13:00 flashes in blue at the bottom left of my screen when I try to play these dvds.  Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?  Oh, and I have the complication that I don't have the original remote, but a universal remote, so I would either appreciate solutions that I could try from the player itself or with generic buttons that I can use on the universal remote.

Try using a Laser Lens Cleaner disc - get the "wet" type that uses fluid. Target stores carry an inexpensive one.

Could be a region issue, are the DVDs from a different region?

My Sony dvp NS710H isn't playing most standard, well conditioned DVDs.

Just clean its laser pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc in to, and play it at least two times. If it doesn't help you, the laser pickup unit should be replaced. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic sparepart selling shops at your town, and won't cost more.

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.

The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.
