Question about Sony DAV-IS10 System

DVD freezing up

Hello Guys,
bought this system a little over 4 months ago and now we are having issues with the system playing DVD, it freezes up every 5 minutes when playing a movie, have to un-plug it from wall to get it back on.
we went out and bought a brand new DVD and same thing happened, I don't think its a lens issue because when it freezes up none of the buttons work at all, not even the EJECT or POWER button
Please help
Thanks

It very well could be a lens problem.
When the laser is in a desperate search for more data, it can max out the whole unit trying to find it. Same thing will happen with a PC's dvd drive if you put a dvd in and it is scratched or damaged.

The lens in your unit may not be dirty, but it may need to be calibrated again. Knocks in transport, dust, bugs, general use etc etc can all have an effect on the laser.

The fact it's doing it in a cycle could also be heat related. Again this goes back to the calibration. If the laser is working far harder then it should, it will heat up and begin to fail.

Since it is only a few months old though, I would call in on the warranty to have it looked at without causing you further grief.

If you really like the unit (disregarding the DVD player issues), maybe you could buy a GOOD stand-alone DVD or BluRay player and be ready for an upgrade in the electronics when the bug bites.

DVDs freeze every few seconds while playing


this could be from a number of issues. first is it a home made disk? second the type of changer you are using?

home made disks can be fixed by using a + or - disk depending on the disk and what the drive likes.

as for the second issue it could be a cooling issue or the lens might be dirty try blowing it out with some can air and try to use a lens cleaner disk. they should be able to sell one for about $5 - $10

Any number of issues could be happening.  From overloading circuts to horribly designed disk readers.  As much as I would love to give you technical help, I can only suggest that you don't buy products from this brand anymore.

Fixed Mine!!!!

My Home theatre started to do the same thing today and I manged to get it going again by reseting the ratings password and changing the batteries in my remote. Oddly enough, I have never set a ratings password so I suspect the batteries caused the issue. Seems to be back to normal. Instructions for the reset are in the manual. Here's a link to the online one at Panasonics website http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/SAHT730.PDF

Dvd-r problems


Unplug your AC power cord for a minimum of 30 seconds to clear the RAM. The RAM is used solely for dvd class history, and clearing this should solve your issue. If you want to convert your player to region free, which will allow you to play ANY dvd: 1 Disconnect your player from its power source for thirty seconds 2) Reconnect your player to its power source 3) Press the Power On button on your remote control 4) Press the Enter button on your remote control 5) Press the 8 button on your remote control 6 Press the 4 button on your remote control 7) Press the 2 button on your remote control 8) Press the 6 button on your remote control 9) Press the 9 button on your remote control 10)Press the Enter button on your remote control 11)Your player should now place itself in Standby mode 12)Press the Power On button on your remote control A word of caution if your convert your player is that disc eject issues may arise in which you will have to eject from the unit, or toggle your power switch on/off.....good luck my friend.
