Sony DAV-C700 DVD player not working

We just had a blackout and now that the power is back on I cannot get my Sony DAV-C700 DVD player to work. We pressed the power switch/indicator on the unit and it turns red but we cannot get the unit to do anything else. We know the remote works because we can turn the TV on and off with it but the DVD player does not respond.

Can you help? Thanks.

    Thanks. No. There is nothing showing on the LCD. It appears to be -- for lack of a better word -- dead.

    Our system has had exactly the same problem for about a week and yesterday we managed to get writing on the screen which read "protect" then it went again, but now back to doing it again. Is it because the dvd player is too close to tv? We going to move it and try that out!!

Got a code c-81 then dvd player won't do anything. Help


A bizarre coincidence but our Sony DVD player DAV C700 did exactly the same when the kids were watching a DVD. All other functions on the system are still working but the DVD player wll not eject or play - and the self diagnosis function C 81 remains illuminated on the display.

Surround sound hookup question?


It looks like all you'll need to do is hook up audio out from DirecTV to audio in on the surround sound system. Sony has an interesting hookup recommendation guide on the product support site:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=DAVC700&LOC=3

That should give you the connection options. The short answer, though, is to connect the best audio out from DirecTV to an audio in on the surround sound and then choose that option in the surround sound system when you want to watch TV.

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.

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".
