Question about Sony DAV-FC7 System

1 Answer

Sony compact AV system model #DAVFC7 "Dream" surround sound

Same problem so many others seem to have had. Cannot play or eject discs, and flashing "standby" indicator. Did have speaker wires shorted at one time.(oops) And did have unit sitting on top of Tivo box.(heat damage?... oops again!) Unit is approx. 5 years old, and problem has existed for approx. 2 years, therefore I have been using it as sound system for TV only, and rarely shut it off. Thankyou for your time and brains. P.S. I'm good with tools, and am willing to go inside of unit. Thanks again, guys.

Sony compact AV SYSTEM DAV-S400


Hi Joey - I had exactly the same problem.

In my case, I followed the advice of others and took the thing apart. On the main amp board there is a large brown capacitor. Mine had come completely loose, so I soldered it back in place with a good amount of solder to make sure the contacts were ok. I also dabbed some solder on the headphone connectors on the same board (just follow the wire from the headphone socket to the board). Well, when I put it back together and tried it again everything worked perfectly, and it has so far remained free from the error. Hope that helps !

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


I just finished setting up my system last night and was facing similar problems with sound/video from my PS3. The only option I could get working was to have the HDMI cable connected from the PS3 to the TV and then connect the Optical cable to the receiver for sound. I was under the impression that HDMI handles sound and video but for whatever reason the PS3 does not agree.

I have DTS sound and fantastic picture now through my PS3, hope this helps.

Cheers

FAC-FC7 DVD player is locked and the Standby indicator flashes


I had the same problem and searched FIX and found a solution for a Phillips DVD player that worked on my Sony DAV-FC7 dvd player. Someone posted that they called their Phillips Tech Service and was told to (a) unplug the dvd unit from the wall and wait 20 seconds,then (b) press the standby+plug the unit back into the wall at the same time and hold for 10 seconds. I did this for my Sony DAV-FC7 which would not power on nor eject (just red light on). IT WORKED!! after doing these steps, my SONY powered on and the rented DVD ejected. The dvd palyer works again. Thanks fellow FIXYA "posters".

Connect PS3 for playing/viewing blue-ray thru surround sound


Connect the PS3 to your TV with the hdmi cable and to the surround sound system with a digital optical cable, then set your PS3 to output sound through the optical port (through the sound options menu) and you're good to go!
