Question about Sony DAV-C770 System

1 Answer

DVD skips or freezes when playing and not related to a scratched or dirty DVD

My Sony DAV-C770 skips or freezes when playing and not related to a scratched or dirty DVD. I pulled the DVD and placed into another DVD player and it works fine. Something internally wrong with this Sony Dream system.
Thanks in advance for your assistance,

I think that this is the laser unit as I have three of these units and I have swapped everything but the laser unit.

Our Sony c 770 no longer plays DVDs or Cds but it still works as a receiver. Can we connect a DVD player to it and have it come thru the 5.1 speaker system?

Yes, tis unit has 2 video inputs at rear so you can connect any other dvd player sound (analog or digital) to get 5.1 channel surround sound from DAV-C770 speakers.
Click Sony Support to download user manual copy of DAV-C770 that has more details about connection setup.
Hope this info will help you.

On Sony DAV-C770 Dvd disks are stuck in machine and I've heard this is a common problem and almost not fixable. Are there enough jacks to hook up an external dvd player. There is already a stereo vcr...

This is a repairable assembly. It needs realigment. I have realigned many of these units with no problem as long as theres no broken plastic parts. What ever you do dont force anything.Yes there is a video input jack that can be used for hookup

Will it not accept any dics? If so then I would recommend a DVD lens cleaner disc. Usually not more then 9.99.
Good luck,

Movie freezes, skips.

Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!

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
