    The problem I have is a power issue. The unit doesn't turn on at all now. Not even the receiver works. I don't think the unit posted on craigslist has the same problem.

    SONY DAV-C990 does not work - only  power/standby button flashes.

    craigslist has this posting, should i bite? The reason why the price low is because there is an issue with the DVD
    player, which can be a little touchy with loading DVDs. But it also
    takes a digital input (and is a surround sound audio receiver) so you
    can easily hook up any DVD player you want and just bypass its internal
    DVD player if you want and enjoy the same digital surround sound.

The unit has suffered damage internally and a service tech could diagnose the problem after opening the unit up to see if there is any damage to the main board or its components.

Sony Dav-C770 blinking standby light product will not function


I had the same problem, red blinking light after owning for several years. I decided to replace the capacitor at C914 to see if it would work, and it did. Apparently that capacitor is prone to failure. Since this seems to be a common problem, I created a web page detailing the repair. Hope it is helpful. Repair cost $1.39 + tax.

DVDs play in black and white


Try use connect your dvd player with just RCA(composite video) and see if you get regular color picture.If so,you need to go to the system menu to check the video output and see if it is under R Pr Pb-component video setting?If not,be sure to change it to component video setting AND use component video cable to connect to your TV unless your TV don't have this connection.

Sony dav-c990 not functioning


A lot of "aged" problems relate to the power supply with this type of unit. If you are a handy chap and know what capacitors are you will find that finding and replacing the "dry" caps in the power supply will fix most problems including streaky pix and crackly audio.

Can not load or Eject DVD


Be sure NOT to load any CD+ -R,CD+-RW or DVD+-R,DVD+-RW to this unit.
Try to load up a standard CD see if there is audio first. If so,try a good(not scratches) dvd movie.If you have tried both and still not working.You need this unit to be repair or buy a new one!

Black box showing up while viewing DVDs


Go to your TV remote, in the menu find the closed caption or sometimes it is on the remote itself. Turn off the closed caption. this should solve your problem. Good Luck
