Question about Sony DVP-FX820 DVD Player

Open Question

Sony dvp-fx820 hangs up, makes noise

Usually loads dvd, but often hangs up, with a noise like something inside is shuffling back and forth quickly. Like maybe the laser assembly is shuffling back and forth and can't find where it belongs? Discs spin as usual, and the symptoms are the same for all types of discs. Any advice appreciated.

    I should add that the problem is most prevalent when it's trying to access the dvd menu

No Sir, You can't upgrade DVP-NS530 to play DivX format. This player has no ability to play DivX nor it can be upgraded.

Hello,

Sony has designed this player so it cannot have the region code changed, it is hard wired into the board as part of their copy protection scheme.

Most users have rated this player as 'junk' (sorry to be the bearer of bad news) and should be replaced.

Maybe you can sell it on Ebay.

My suggestion is that the less expensive the player the better off you will be in the long run as the cheaper brands and models use DVD drives meant for PCs and Macs. More expensive models have proprietary drives, such as Sony, and cannot be manipulated and are not very versatile in recording media and or playing copyright hacked copies of DVDs even if you own the original DVD but has been scratched.

The courts are still trying to figure out these protection measures as they are not fair use in terms of you the owner of a DVD and wanting to make your own backup copy for the kids to use.

Regards,
Worldvet
