SOURCE: No Disc Error

I have had some problems with the same unit. My particular problems are posted under dutchtreet on a page on this site. I bought a compressed air duster like used on keyboards and tv screens. I have cleaned the lens on the laser pick up on my old Sony cd player (15+ yrs. old) several times and done some minor vcr repairs and simple electronics repairs so I was not intimidated! Much to my chagrin, there was a cover w/ a spidle above the lens on the dvd recorder! I could not get to it w/ a swab and some 99.6% alcohol on it so I opted to get to it with the air dusters nozzle as close to the lens as I could get without removing the cover/spindle. I probably used half the duster and blew from all angles possible. After reinstalling it, it will now play some dvd's it would not play since I began having problems. Also loads both cd's and dvd's much quicker. I know I have a dust problem in my A/V room so am now running my air cleaner 24/7. Am also wiping off all media I use in it before inserting. So hopefully with some routine maintenance I can keep it working ok. You can probably have the unit cleaned locally. How do you keep the drawer open while cleaning? Open the drawer amd then disconnect the power cord while it is open. I know from some rsearch that dvd recorders are must more sensitive and do not like dust!!!

SOURCE: Sony DVD RECORDER/PLAY WON'T PLAY

Dvd players are only made to last a couple of years(the laser goes bad).If you play scratched disc's it won't last that long.Hopefully you didn't pay alot for the player,and if you did then you can get the laser repaired but its expensive.I usually wait until the things go on sale and pick one up for 20 or 30 dollars.When the laser burns out after repeated use I just buy a new one because fixing them is more expensive and unless you want to continue having problems its easier to buy new.These guys that put alot of money in these units are just wasting their money.

SOURCE: Sony DVP-NC600 Multi-disc DVD Player No Disc Error

The only other thing I can suggest, having repaired many Sony CD/DVD players, is to get a can of compressed air and try to blow any dust out from the laser assembly. Since you've already cleaned the lens (the most common problem), you also might have dust down inside the assembly. Try blowing with the air nozzle down inside, around the gap between the lens and the cover surrounding it. Do it from at least a couple of inches away, if the air is too powerful you can damage the wiring inside the assembly.

If this fails to correct the problem, your laser output may have diminished over time and the only repair is to install a new laser assembly. The cost of this part will most likely not be worth it to you since the unit is quite old now.

Sony 5 disc dvd player says c 31 00


C31 usually means a motor error. In your case, it sounds more like the loading sequence is not completing. Can you please confirm that the model is the DAV-FX10 system?

Disc sticking


Lasers are mechanical and focusing parts. Over time, mechanical parts can wear out and focusing parts lose focus.

Try a wet/dry laser cleaner using alchol based cleaner. If this doesn't work, connect a cheap DVD player to it so the Sony system can provide audio....

NO DISC ERROR


Sounds like a dirty or failed laser or DVD mechanism /drive.

Try a DVD/CD lens cleaner (must say both). If you can, try wet & dry version with alcohol based cleaner - Alsop are a good brand.

If this doesn't work, the drive has likely failed. Its unlikely to be economical to repair - but you could always connect a cheap DVD player to the Sony system - the sony system can then continue to provide surround sound audio, whilst the cheap DVD player plays the discs!

Otherwise - sell the system as separate parts (speakers, remote, cables, DVD player) as someone is bound to be desparate for the speaker set on its own to complete a system and will often pay more!
