    That sounds great. I checked and the Harmony 300 should do it. Thanks so much

I can help you with your remote control query.

Here is a thread where some real enthusiasts discuss the best remote controls (and remote control code sets) to use with your Sony AVD-C70ES.

One popular verdict is the SONY RM-CL70 .

I must say though, that for that kind of money (upwards of $150US) I would recommend to you to take a close look at Logitech's Harmony line of remotes.

What I like about them is the way they are programmed using a website, so you don't mess around with inputting codes to program it: you just select your devices from drop down menus on your computer. I've setup the Harmony One model for family and clients, and find it very configurable and easy to use once setup.

I popped your Sony AVD-C70ES into the Harmony Remote Compatibility Check Page and it declared your device as supported, so that is what I really recommend.

I hope that helps.

How do I fix the FM tuner to pick up FM signals?

I think you might have fault in the FM tuner section. Most of these are done by a single IC, replacing that will cure the fault I suspect.

Sony AVD-S50ES DVD Player Had this in storage. Decided to sell. Verified it played CD's and DVD's video and audio were being sent out appropriately. Track info displayed on front panel. Buyer claims...

Be careful that it isn't a scam.
Some people will claim non-functionality hoping to get a refund without having to return the perfectly working unit.
It's possible it was damaged in shipping, but unlikely if it was packed well.

If they are demanding a refund, tell them that your policy is like any other - they need to return the unit, and once you have verified that the unit is indeed defective, you will issue a refund.

Unit won't power up from standby mode

The power button might be broken. Did you try the remote? It cant be a failure in the power circuit because you said standby light is working. if that light is working then the player should start up fine.

DVD Freezes during playback

it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.
