Question about Sony DAV-SC8 System

1 Answer

Picture distortion. Sound fine

Have just got a dav sc8 from my Brother to replace me Dav s800. Everthing works fine apart from when playing DVDs the picture can be disturbed on and off all the way through the movie. I thought the lens may be dirty but it wont even play the cleaner disk.
I am suspecting the laser or mechanisum is stuffed but it was only used rarley by my brother.

Hi, I have a sony dav-sc8 dvd home theatre system and would likt to know if there is a way to make it multi region


These are the commands for the DAV-300 but hopefully they are the same for yours...hope it helps.
Region 0 is what you want, but here's all the commands for the 300 which hopefully work on the sc8 as well.

Put your player into "Standby" Mode and enter one of the following commands if
necessary,
: Remote control command Function
: [0] [RETURN] Default Default region code on the player
: [1] [RETURN] Region 1
: [2] [RETURN] Region 2
: [3] [RETURN] Region 3
: [4] [RETURN] Region 4
: [5] [RETURN] Region 5
: [6] [RETURN] Region 6
: [P. MODE] [RETURN] Only play DVD's with the selected region; auto switching
OFF
: [AUDIO] [RETURN] Default Auto switching ON
: [ANGLE] [RETURN] Enable video interference impulses (Macrovision ON)
: [SUBTITLE] [RETURN] Default Disable video interference impulses (Macrovision
OFF)
: [PREV] [RETURN] Enable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions
: [NEXT] [RETURN] Default Disable user operation prohibitions* and access
restrictions.

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?


Hi,
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.
Thanks.

Sony DAV-SC8. I'm suddenly getting distortion


It sounds like the speakers themselves are the problem rather than the amp.
Although, it would be rare to have overdriven/blown the surrounds.
My suggestion would be to isolate which speakers or channels (on Amp) are at fault.
Swap left and right to see if the problem transfers across.

High-pitched sound when using surround sound


I had the same problem, check your wires on the back of the tv and make sure your, red, yellow and white wires are in the correct holes. What kind of tv do you have, as I have an Ilo, and it has like 15 different plugs in the back, you may have to get you book out and make sure you have it in the correct hole on the back of the tv... I hope this helps....

Sony DAV-BC150 System


I have this same problem. Plays music CDs fine but DVDs do not work. It recognises the DVD tries 3 times to play it displaying "Reading" and then moves on to the next available disk. Any suggestions?

Audi but no picture when cable box conected through DAV-X1


It won't work as the DAv can only output to HDMI by bringing singal into the HDMI input.

why wouldn't you send it directly to the TV and Audio to the DAV? I sounds like you don't have an HD box anyway (otherwise why would you use an analogue S-video cable vs component or HDMI). Unless there is a distance issue then go to the TV.

Sony DAV SC5 Home Theatre System - NO picture only sound when DVD / VCD played


Have you set the tv type (PAL/NTSC/Multi..) or the component type (RGB, YUV, etc.) suitable for your tv? If not, go to the main menu of your Home Theater System then check it out.

Flashing standby message.


Are any of the buttons not making a click feel when you press them like maybe one is stuck?? You didnt say if the same thing happen with the radio as did with the cd. If it is then a switch is stuck or bad or a problem with the switch matrix for the Microprocesor . Only way to trouble shoot this is I would use a scope and check all of the matrix {ie scann lines as well as input lines for distortion or noise and make sure when the buttons are pussed that they change and switch accordinly. If they dont then the processors bad. Good luck
