SOURCE: how do i fix my sony dvd dav-dz230 - 'cannot play'

Hi Neal,

This is probably not the technical solution you are looking for but I have a similar problem but i have tried the following it works for some discs. Put the disc in the tray and press close on the remote and do open and close for a couple of times and sometimes it suddenly starts.

I cannot find an explanation as to why this happens but below are my thoughts:
1. The player is old and perhaps the laser unit position is knackered. 2. For some reason the region code lock in the set is not able to recogonise the code on the DVD. 3. Its possessed!
:) try it and hope it works :)

SOURCE: My sony DVP-NS725P will not play discs

Run a DVD disc cleaner through it and see if that helps. If not then open it up and manually clean the laser pickup lens. Then give it a go. If that didn't help, then open it back up and replace the optical drive.

I had this and cured it by opening up the player and levering off the round cover on the dvd drive, removing the weighted magnet, then cleaning the rubber seat.

You may have to try another universal remote. All remotes do not contain all possible codes.

Why is it not turning on?

The answer to this maybe the fan at the back is either blocked with a build up of dust or has to be replaced, I had the same problem and took it out to be repaired started to wipe it down and thought would give it a go after this and it kicked back into life. Hope this works for you. John

Can Anyone Help me! I Would like to conect my Sony DAV-S880 Compact AV system to my Hp PC, what is the best option and what cable type do I need to used. Thanks!

Hi there
you can connect this system to your computer in multiple ways. But how you do so depends on what your computer has. If your PC has RCA connections on it then that would be the simplest way but this would leave you with stereo sound. If you have a digital decoder in your computer and a optical out then i would suggest using that. A Optical cable is quite inexpensive and can be bought from pretty much any decent A/V shop. 
If you can let me know the model of you PC i can give you exact directions but dont be afraid to play around yourself. I only suggest that you do so carefully.
hope this helps.
