Question about Sony DVP-NC80V DVD Player

4 Answers

System shuts down while playing movie

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.

Hi,

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.

    Try turning on the devices separately, with cables not connected to each other, and see which one turns off.
    It is one of the devices overheating and messing the whole system. Test them out and post result of the test back here for more troubleshooting.

    Regarding the "circle of death" message, it often happens because of a bad update, if the Xbox was connected to Internet and doing update it is possible that the first power cutoff caused it.

    Did you do what I told you?
    You jump to buy a new dvd, test your devices first.

    If all stuff turns off at exactly same time, it does not mean they are
    all overheating or all faulty. One of the devices is faulty, when it
    goes off it returns electric feedback to the rest of the system and
    they go down at same time.

    To find out what component is going down connect them separately (no rca, hdmi, composite, scart, or whatever cable you use to connect devices one to the other)
    If everything works fine then it is a bad cable.
    If not replace or repair faulty unit.
    About the circle of death, if you cannot get rid of it Microsoft will replace your Xbox, just claim you were doing an update.

PS3 freezes but sound still works


when it happens, give it some time, like 5-10 min. the ps3 is most likely accessing the hard drive, and if it is, shutting down in the middle of it could currupt your hdd. if it doesnt work, even after 10 min, call sony tech support, but if it works fine afterwords, i dont see why it would be neccessary. unless it gets worse, i think you should just turn it on, turn it off after a few min, then back on, and then play.

Receiver overload problem


The overload message is indicating that a problem was found and the system is shutting down the output section to prevent further damage. There are probably poor connections on the main board and failing capacitors in the front end. Expect a parts vcost in the $10 range. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair bill.

Player suddenly freezes


Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:
