Question about Sony DAV-SC5 System

1 Answer

COLORLESS PLAYING Hi there; I bought an sc-5 hometheatre 3 years ago and after a year troubles began: 1) When the system is turned-on : the LOGO is black and white(instead of blue) 2) NOW; if the film is "NTSC" after the insertion of the film the LOGO turns to normal blue and the menu and film would be normal(with color) ; BUT; if the film is "PAL", the LOGO remains "black and white" and the menu and movie go on in "black and white". I have tested my system with other TVs but it didn't solve the problem.

Did you check the outlet that it's plugged into? Sometimes we see defective outlets in surge protectors. Check the end that plugs into the receiver also, unplug it, then reconnect it.

It wont play dvds!!! Help!!! Panasonic SC-HT520

You can try a CD/DVD Cleaner Disk ($3-$5). Some sell for $15, don't know if you'll get better results. If it doesn't work, then you have a laser alignment issue that needs calibrating. The labor is likely to cost more than a new DVD player.

Sc-HT80 Problem

Hi one solution to your probelom is that the lazer is is a fix it 4 u. A major problem began 2 years ago Some New DVDs would not always play. Message on LED display says "NO PLAY". I discovered today that the problem lies with the laser being underpowered for some DVDs. On the web I found a fix. Warning! Always have someone competent with electricity to fix the SA-HT80 with the following instructions: 1. Remove all disks from player. 2. When door is open slide front door cover upwards to remove. 3. Leave door open. 4. Important UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS! 5. Remove the 3 screws from under the front panel then remove cover screws. 6. Disconnect player from the mains. Remove cover. 7. Once you have removed the cover you will see on left side is the drive parts. 8. Pull out the two flat cables which go to the Drive from the vertical circuit Board(Hold the cable with thumb and forefinger close to the connector and slide the flat cables out of their connector. 9. Remove the screws fixing the drive unit to the base of the cabinet. 10. Now remove drive unit. 11. Placing the drive upright on a flat surface proceed to remove the two screws holding the Plastic bridge that sits over the disk. 12. Also undo the screw on the small circuit board which holds the disk sensor switch onto the bridge and unclip that small board. Remove this plastic bridge over the drive. 13. On underside of drive remove the two small screws from the drive circuit board. You can now gently prize this board loose.(There is some resistance as a plastic clasp is holing onto the underside.) 14. Turn Drive back to upright position. 15. Remove the screws which hold the drive in(Screws go through rubber mounts to cushion the drive). 16. Once you have loosened the drive look at the underside and you will see one flat cable goes to the Laser. Where this cable meets the metal part you will see a tiny device connected on the outside edge of the flat cable. 17. Turn the POT 1/5 off a turn clockwise(looks like a small washer and be gentle with it) I used pointed nose pliers for this. 18. Now reassemble DVD player. 19. Ensure cover is in place and screwed down before connecting to a power supply. This is a guide which you will follow at your own risk. Happy fixing Gerald
