I think on the remote, there is a button 'rec mode' (bottom row), try pushing this and it will change to XP or EP etc. I think you might be on EP now, I think XP is the best quality. I'm trying to work out a problem myself (says disc protection is on, and that the disc is not recordable) and just saw your question on here :)

Hi Bobby.Some tv`s delay when switching inputs. More than likely that`s the way it is built. Also you can go to the manufacturers website and see if they have a firmware upgrade download that may

fix the problem. GOOD LUCK !

Cannot open the disc tray

If you hear the motor trying to work then try to push the disk out by try holding the eject button for couple of seconds or press it and hold it couple of times real quick. If that works you need to leave disk in it in order to get the disc tray to keep ejecting I a have cdrom that works like this. If not take it apart and take out the cd you need and replace the disc tray with motor that works.

Door won't open

Those kind of problems just require that the door open one time. However, to do that you will have to take the cover off the player with the power off of course. Once you have take the cover off ( only a few screws ) you will be able to see the disk player well enough to see the back part of it. There are two ways you can do this, first, is to power the player back on, press the power button on. Then when you press the open door button or use your remote whichever, have your finger on the very back end of the carriage that holds the disk and push to the front gently as it tries to open the door, you will know because you will hear a short click from a relay. If you cannot open it after a couple of tries then power it off again and unplug it. There are only four screws that hold the disc player part in itself. Take those four screw off so you can lift it far enough to get to the bottom front of the disc player. Once you can do that, without the power on, there is a white neoprene part that moves from left to right or right to left to open and close the door. You will be able to see it and you can manually slide the part to whichever side it will move and that will open the door. You can gently push the door back closed and open it again a few times. Then place the disc player back in place with the screws in and power it up and open the door with the remote or button. It should open. What happens is that depending on how long the player has set on a wharehouse shelf or just around even if it is new, the lithium grease that they use for the moving parts dries out and it needs a little push and use to work properly again. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

Sony DVP-NC600, CD/DVD Player

Hey llacy2,

There may actually be a number of reasons that this may be occuring, and there are a couple of things that you can try in order to resolve this type of problem.

You may wish to first clean the discs being placed in the DVD tray with a soft cloth. Any kind of dirt, scratches or cracks on the disc may cause the unit to immediately reject it. Once the disc has been cleaned, try to insert it again. If the disc is rejected a second time, you may need to try a different title.

If the problem still persists with more than one disc, the manufacturer has suggested both turning the DVD player off and fully unplugging the player (power cord, other connections and all). You may wish to allow at least 1 full minute before reconnecting the player and AC adaptor, but if the problem isn't resolved after doing so you may need to contact a repair facilty for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Problems with a disc that keeps reading unformatted

This has happened because somehow the program didn't "Close the Session" and make it so data could be added, instead it has "Locked" the disk to prevent any more data being overwritten and ostensibly corrupting the disk.. In this case however it has also locked out everything... and returned it to the "Unformatted" state. Although I suspect you will NOT actually be able to record anything to this disk in actual fact. You MAY be abale to use a program called Unstopable Copier, if ya lucky :Download HERE
