Hello there

First check that the player is well connected to power and that the power is not too low or too high as this can damage your player..

Reboot the device if the Sony player doesn’t work at all. It’s possible the circuitry needs resetting. Turn the player off and turn it on again.

Inspect the cable running from the DVD player into the wall outlet. Make sure there are no cuts or chew marks in the cable, a common occurrence with animals in the house. If there is damage to the cable, wrap the cuts with electrical tape for insulation.

Unplug the power cable running from the DVD player and insert it into a different electrical outlet. Outlets can burn out and not function. Plugging the cable into a different outlet may correct your problem.

Look for glass fuses on the back of the player that control the unit's power distribution. If the fuses are black or broken, pick up some new ones at an audio or home improvement store

Change the temperature. Electronic equipment is designed to function best at room temperature, and DVD discs are no different. If they are too warm or too cold, try adjusting the temperature in the room and see if that helps the DVD (and your repair efforts) work properly.

Ventilate the room. If you were performing your initial repairs in an area that was dusty or smoky, the particles in the air may have interfered with the process. Ventilate the room for an hour or so, and then try again.

Make sure the player is set for CD/DVD playback. You will get no picture or audio from the Sony player if the system is set to the VCR , for example. The selection can change simply by brushing against a button on a remote control

GOODLUCK

Standby mode


When the STANDBY indicator

flashes

Immediately unplug the power cord

and check the following items.

• If your unit have a voltage selector,

is the voltage selector set to the

correct voltage?

Check the voltage for your region,

then make sure the voltage selector

is set correctly.

• Are the + and - speaker cords shortcircuited?

• Are you using the supplied

speakers?

• Is anything blocking the ventilation

holes on the rear of the unit?

After checking the above items and

fixing any problems, plug in the power

cord again and turn on the unit. If the

STANDBY indicator still flashes, or if

the cause of the problem cannot be

found even after checking all the

above items, consult your dealer.

Flashing standby and disc wont eject


Try this: Turn it off and unplug everything from the wall and the device. Then hold in the on/off button for at least sixty seconds. Replug and try it. No guarantees but worth a try to reset the device.

I have a samsung DVD Home Theater System HT-WX70. My son put a cd copy in the DVD player and PROTECTION flashed on the player and it turned off. I turned the player back on and took the cd out. ...


If it is, the protection message usually meant either a speaker had blown, or more commonly a wire to a speaker had come disconnected or broken/shorted.

Try unplugging the speakers one at a time, and if you have a set of speakers of the same rating to try, try plugging them in as you remove the originals (obviously doesn't need to be done in the setup positions in the room, just have them beside the player to check it works.)

This might then identify which speaker or cable is the problem one for you to replace or repair.

If this is the speaker overload/short mesaage as I think it is and the above doesn't cure it, it would appear the amplifier board has a short somewhere and that's an electronics engineer job time
Hope it helps!

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".

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
