Question about Sony MEXR1 Car DVD Player

Open Question

My Sony Mex-R1 is not reading any Mp3, Audio, Video CD's and DVD's. I got my player serviced once from Sony service centre. Second time the players hanged the new DVD's and mp3 CDs. The unit was getting hot. Kindly assist if my player needs a new lens and a cooling mechanism. What is the overall cost in doing so also will it be a permanent fix. Awaiting your valuable feedback. - Santosh Gaikwad, Mumbai.

SOURCE: Hanging screen is loose and broken from base of DVD player

You can get a part by searching ebay for AS-IS items (usually $10 or less) and using it for spare parts.

SOURCE: DVD Stuck in player

Found out what my problem was - 2 DVDs were in the unit - need to take unit out of car (very easy - 5 mounting screws, 2 plug in power connections), remove some brackets from within the unit to get to the DVD itself and then just pull the DVD out - took me less than 1 hour - and I am not tech savvy or mechanically inclined by any means

SOURCE: Sony CD/DVD Player DVP-NS50P not playing my avi files DVD+RW

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.

Need help installing xplod mex bt39uw


You have to invest in separate cables to the booster amplifier. Be careful that you have the proper relays and fuse for these or you might end up losing your car because of fire.

No Disc-alert. Will not play any DVD's. Will not run lens cleaner disc. disc's spin. thank you


Discs spinning after being loaded, that's a positive sign, but 'No READ' or 'No Disc' usually means the laser has failed or its output is too weak to read DVDs (DVD players tend to spin discs at a faster speed with a higher read rate than CD decks (obviously to read the video data as well as audio per disc, the optical/laser voltage rating is higher for DVD). So they are more likely to fail quicker than CD lasers but not always.

In short, since the unit is only a player, and may not be brand new or under any warranty, consider replacing it with a new unit or perhaps a DVD recorder (or even a Blu-Ray player - as they are becoming cheaper to buy now) - the cost of repairs/parts for this one would be higher than a new one and not economical, although you can always submit it to a service centre and get a quote (and a second opinion) on the likely cost(s) of parts/repairs involved. It won't be cheap, trust me.

I recently formated my sony mex 1 gp head unit, and right now it is not able to read files copied onto it.


When you formatted it you also removed the default embedded players software. In the manual look up which player was incorporated into this player. All you should have formatted is the memory, now you will have reload the software for this equipmentand only an authorized Sony Service Center will be able to do that because that software is a patented one and you will not get it enywhere, even from the net.........sodeep
