Question about Sony DAV-IS10 System
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
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.
