Question about Sony DAV-FC8 System

1 Answer

I have a Sony DAV-FC8 that I purchased in 2003. It is starting to have more and more difficulty reading DVD's, as well as encountering problems during playback. I am fairly sure this is a result of the player needing to be cleaned, however the manual says not to use a cleaning disc, as it may cause a malfunction? How else can I clean the player or improve on this growing problem? Thanks

First of all its not as easy as you think to clean the optical lens in some of the Sony systems because they have put a dust cover over the whole DVD mechanism ( unlike older systems where you could access the lens just by removing the top metal cover ).
You will have to remove the top metal cover , then remove the plastic dust cover . Using a cotton ear bud gently clean the lens ( looks like a fish eye ). Put everything back in the reverse order and try. If it still does not work you will have to replace the whole unit itself.
