Question about Sony DVP-NC80V DVD Player
After about 10 minutes of watching a DVD, the system shuts down. Both the Sony DVD (NC80V) and the Receiver (Denon AVR 3805). Is this a problem with the DVD player or the Receiver? I don't have this problem while watching T.V. (using the receiver for sound), so I'm inclined to think it's the DVD. As a side note, this problem started occuring around the same time a got the "circle of death" message on my X-box 360. I have diconnected the x-box, but still have the problem. Could the over-heating of the x-box (assumed cause for the circle of death message) have caused damage to the DVD and/or reciever?
What would be your recommended next steps?
I recommend u disconnect the dvd player from the receiver and try it in another system... maybe a neighbor or friend could help out. If it works ok in another system, then maybe an interface problem exists; bad cables, wrong connections, etc.

Initially, may I inquire how the system as physically placed in relation to each other? Is it atop one another, along a single shelf? It would appear heat related instigated by the Sony and spilled over to the Denon. Would there be sufficient ventilation space in between the units?
Other than the above, it could be a faulty power strip or mains outlet. Pls try alternative mains source.
If it is heat related, forced ventilation or relocating unit placement might be corrective.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
