  1. Have you tried cold starting it; disconnect it completely from the mains for ~10 mins, then reconnect and try again.
  2. It is probably a problem with the EPROM or the CPU. You could try resetting the software by holding in the STOP button while turning on the power to the unit. If that doesn't work it sounds like the EPROM is corrupt or the CPU is bad.

Dv280 dvd machine

That happens when the lens are dirty or defective.

You can try using a cleaner DVD to clean the lens, that may not work.

Being the unit only 6 months old this is probably a fault concerning the lens, rather than dirt and dust on the lens.

I think the best thing to do is contacting Pioneer at the number listed on the owner manual, since there is one year factory warranty cover on all Pioneer products.
