Question about Sony DVP-NS55P DVD Player

Dvd player frequently pauses or freezes while trying to play audio cd's

I have had my sony dvd player for about six years now and recently I started using it as the cd player for my audio system as well as a dvd player.  The player has no trouble playing dvd's, but for some reason it has a tendency to get stuck while playing audio cd's.  Sometimes the pause will only last 15 or 30 seconds before it starts playing again on its own, and sometimes it freezes completely and I have to power it down and restart the cd.  The freezes appear to be completely random, and have nothing to do with the cd, or where it is in the song.  The problem happens with burned and original cd's, and with brand new and old cd's alike.  Again, this does not happen while playing dvd's.  Please help.

You tried cleaning the lens right?  That's the first thing I would do. You may have to actually open up the unit and use some windex on a cotton swap to clean the lens. Be very careful not to overwet the cotton swab. Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens.

The red wavelength of light from the laser might not be getting through the lens properly, which is used for the Audio CDs, where the higher frequency laser is used for the DVD material.

First make sure there is not a DVD or CD in the tray. It must be empty. Turn the unit off, then on. Then press the "play/pause" and "stop" buttons. This will reset your DVD player. This worked for me. Unfortuantely the DVD player has always had issues with DVD's that play over 90 minutes. At this point it freezes. I have updated the firmware. It seemed to freeze earlier prior to the update (say around 45-60min). It came free with my TV, which after a year was replaced as it required a $2k repair.

Dvd pauses


mY DAV-C770 has the exact same problem ...when watching a movie it will intermittently pause or freeze ...then continue. It will do this 20 or 30 times throughout a movie. I asked a tech at Sony for help and he told me the laser reader is out of alignment. The minimum amount to have the dvd player sent out and repaired is $200.00, and thats if it does not require any parts. with a new laser reader it will be about $400.00. Almost the same price as a new dream system. Not worth fixing. I used to think really highly of Sony - until now. Jackal

those kinda players wont play DVD rom disks and certain ones that are made up. DVD-RAM or ROM wont work. Try blowing inside the player for any dust. if it still doesnt work its the maufacters problem. The player will play CD-G audio only, not graphics The ability to play back DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, CD-R, CD-RW, and CD-Jpeg discs may depend on recording conditions.
