Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I have a Sony Home theater 5 disc changer, that will play a dvd for one minute and 13 seconds and then either re-starts the dvd. Any ideas on what could be causing this? I took the cover off the unit and vacumed it to make sure it was not too dusty and overheating. it was surprisingly clean inside. I have used a eye cleaning cd with the brush attached also with no improvement.

You may want to try lubricating the spindle motor (that spins the disc). A couple of drops into the holes on the bottom of the motor. It could also be a cracked drive gear.

My RCA RTD 206 5 disc changer wont play DVD's. It stays on Disc 3 or just says close. I called the # in the manual foe help, but its no longer in service.


If it plays the same disc without issues, you have a mechanical(or the electronics powering the motors and such) problem. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

DVDs freeze every few seconds while playing


this could be from a number of issues. first is it a home made disk? second the type of changer you are using?

home made disks can be fixed by using a + or - disk depending on the disk and what the drive likes.

as for the second issue it could be a cooling issue or the lens might be dirty try blowing it out with some can air and try to use a lens cleaner disk. they should be able to sell one for about $5 - $10
