Sometimes it works, but independable of DVD palyer, more linked to time (eg friday evening it never works). very strange, sony has no solution, player is 2,5 years old and no warrenty.
Does anyone have a solution?

    Thank, but no solution. I have bought a cheap dvd player and can use it through the video 1 connection. Good sound and screen. But now the colours ar to yellow, probably the player was too cheap.
    I still prefe to have the DVD player working of the Sony as I hate many remote controlls and ugly machines

    I do not understand this solution, how can cables be busted if CD sound etc is working? It is an internal thing in the player.
    Vents are not blocked

  • christiaan pothoven Dec 20, 2007

    I have tried every setup for dvd sound, but still no solution. As you probably know it is a homeset with cd, dvd, sacd included. It is very strange that cd is working and dvd not. Could internaly some cable be fault/lose or is it a setup thing?
    I want to open it, but is there some manual for this?

How do you have the DVD player connected - component cables, s-video cable?

It sounds like the DVD player is trying to use an output port for audio that you aren't using, but defaults to a different port for CDs - the one you are using. There should be audio output options in the DVD player menus - I'd suggest trying each of them and seeing if any help. I'm not familiar enough with that particular model to say exactly how to get to those menus.

Also, the research I have done on this system basically says the DVD player stinks, and is prone to a number of problems. You might want to see if you can borrow a DVD player from someone else (assuming you don't have another) and hook it up in the system. At the very least, this should confirm whether it's the DVD player or the sound system that is the problem. If it's the DVD player, you should be able to get a decent replacement rather cheaply. I've always had luck with Apex, and they're generally quite affordable.

    Well, if your cheap DVD player's sound works, that rules out anything in the speaker system, including the cables. The problem is definitely in the Sony DVD player.

    Have you tried going through the setup menus for the DVD player and checking sound options? I'm not exactly sure how you get to those, but on many players it requires turning it on with no DVD in it and using the menu button on the remote. There should be options to configure the sound output that will tell the DVD which port to use for outgoing sound from movies. This isn't always set up to be the same port that CDs or anything else plays out of. I think if you find those menus, and start trying different options, you'll find one that fixes your problem.

    It could be an internal cable, or bad soldering joint. I've been unable to find any kind of schematics or service manual for this... those kind of things keep becoming more rare as electronics become cheaper and thus easier to replace rather than repair.

    My only thought would be to open the lid, check where the audio cable jack connects and follow the wire back, looking for anything broken, burnt or cracked. If it's a cracked joint, it can be resoldered. If it's a broken cable, splice a new one in. If it's burnt... that's a bit harder to fix... probably just replace the DVD player.

I am 80% sure that your cables are busted.. try buying new RCA cables..
check if the vents are blocked.. maybe something overheated and something got busted...

    well.. if you have RCA cables.. remember there are 3 cables.. maybe the yellow (wich is the standard for video) is broken while the other ones arent..

My dvd player keeps saying 'incorrect disk' why? and what can i do to stop it?


I don't understand your problem.
Is it the TV or is it the DVD? You say you tried other dvds and the problem is still there. Looks like the TV is the problem. Sometimes it's hard to help people when they only mention on screen issues. How can first DVD say 'incorrect disk' and then another dvd, and another still say 'incorrect disk'? It just doesn't seem to make sense. Is the contents on the disk a computer recorded movie, film or home movie? If so, you have to record the film on the disk with a format that accept the DVD. Could the DVD be a Blu-Ray, can it play a number of video formats, DVD, DivX, KviD DVD, etc.? Try first with a purchased movie DVD disc, if it doesn't work, then the DVD is faulty. DVD players these days are meant to play a wide range of video format, including CD discs. If you have an old DVD player, you may not play latest discs. But if the DVD is incorporated with the TV, then you have to insert a new movie and see if it plays. Go to an appliance or TV DVD store and talk to them. Or you can purchase a new movie and insert it in. If it doesn't work, you can always return it. As you said, you've tried different DVDs, sounds like it is a separate DVD player. If so, try other movie discs. I get the same warning only when I insert discs with movies I recorded on my computer, such as Pinnacle video editor.

I have tried everthing i can to get the dvd player to be heard over the car speakers but can only get the sound on the head phones. Are these Rosen A7 dvd players designed to play over the radio or not?...


Put a cd in the dvd player then tune to the channel and it should work, then try a dvd.
When dvd player does not boot up and display the Kia logo, try moving the door as the hinge turns on the screen and sometimes the connection in the hinge can play up a bit.

Dvds won't play properly and sound isn't right


Sounds like you may have an issue with it reading discs. It can probably play CDs fine because it's fast enough to buffer ahead of it since an audio CD isn't very much data compared to a DVD. Try cleaning the laser lens with a dry paper towel first (not moist or a dusty kleenex). If that doesn't seem to clean it, or you have visible smears or smudges on it, you may want to try a very very moist (barely the next level above dry) paper towel, then try it immediately.

If that doesn't solve the problem, try different DVD software (VLC Media Player, perhaps) or try a different DVD if you haven't already.

DVD player keeps skipping and gets very blocky looking and then sometimes it just stops I tried cleaning both the lenses of the dvd player with dvd lens cleaner disc and cleaning the dvds nothing seems too...


It sounds like the problem is with the DVD's you've been playing. I've gotten those problems before, but not on every DVD. How many different ones did you try playing?

No sound with discs playing


There should be some sort of outboard amplifier. Mine had an amp at each speaker, and also a receiver mounted behind the passenger seat. Could it be that the power antenna lead from your headunit is connected to the amp turn-on lead? That way, when the radio is playing, the antenna lead is powered and thus the amps are too, whereas when the CD is playing, the antenna lead would not be powered and thus no sound. Try reversing these two wires (Power antenna and amplifier turn-on) and your CD should work.
