Question about Sony DAV-SC8 System

Open Question

DAV-SC8 drive appears to have lost power, there is a display on both screen and front panel. All other functions operate (Radio, External sources). I had to remove the covers to extract a DVD, on testing with the cover removed the drive didn't move at all when powered up. It's in a locked state. Trying the key command to unlock it didn't work, nor did the key sequence to access service mode. I'm not sure where to start or what parts will fix this. Can an entire drive assembly be purchased?

SOURCE: Replacing Sony NW-A1000 battery

Using a pair of pliers grab the silver loop on the back of that player. This is pulled up and backwards at an angle. it is held on by an adhesive pad. Once that is off the back just slots off like many mobile phone backs. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

SOURCE: Cannot get "Test Mode Menu" with remote

Press and hold mute and return on the player and turn the volume control clockwise, the setup menu will appear after a few seconds.Go thru the menu and do the required disc calibration.Do not mess with settings you don't understand, else you'll create more problems than you solve.Have some good single,double layer DVD ,SVCD and CD for the calibration.

Cheers,

Patrick.

SOURCE: Laptop screen flickers and goes off .

You could have a faulty inverter but
You most likely have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

SOURCE: Unit blows the fuse on power up. This happened

Hiya try
http://www.icpowerx.com for the Mosfets, you will probably need to replace driver transistors also (not always but sometimes they go). Also check the resistors to output, they will be the big white ones.
Go here to read on testing FETs
http://www.4qdtec.com/mostest.html
Just to be sure. If one is blown, replace all

Hi, I have a sony dav-sc8 dvd home theatre system and would likt to know if there is a way to make it multi region


These are the commands for the DAV-300 but hopefully they are the same for yours...hope it helps.
Region 0 is what you want, but here's all the commands for the 300 which hopefully work on the sc8 as well.

Put your player into "Standby" Mode and enter one of the following commands if
necessary,
: Remote control command Function
: [0] [RETURN] Default Default region code on the player
: [1] [RETURN] Region 1
: [2] [RETURN] Region 2
: [3] [RETURN] Region 3
: [4] [RETURN] Region 4
: [5] [RETURN] Region 5
: [6] [RETURN] Region 6
: [P. MODE] [RETURN] Only play DVD's with the selected region; auto switching
OFF
: [AUDIO] [RETURN] Default Auto switching ON
: [ANGLE] [RETURN] Enable video interference impulses (Macrovision ON)
: [SUBTITLE] [RETURN] Default Disable video interference impulses (Macrovision
OFF)
: [PREV] [RETURN] Enable user operation prohibitions* and access restrictions
: [NEXT] [RETURN] Default Disable user operation prohibitions* and access
restrictions.

I have an error on the display screen which say's protect then the system shuts down it's a Sony DAV-SC8 System


Generally speaking, an amp protects itself from heat, shorts and overloads by refusing to turn on or stay on.


Overloads can be from excessive periods of high output and shorts would be wiring issues or a speaker blowing up.


You should be able to feel if it's hot. WHY is it overheating? Make sure it has sufficient ventilation on all sides and that vent holes are not blocked by dust balls. Ensure the fan (if equipped) is running as designed (some only operate on demand). Clean dust and debris from it.


If the amp comes back on after cooling, you're lucky. They only have so many self-protection cycles in their lives so continuously resetting or cycling their power without addressing the cause can do more harm than good.


If it protects immediately on a cool power up you should disconnect the speaker connections and try it 'naked'. If it comes up then diagnose which lead(s) are shorted. If it does not come up the problem is internal and should be left to an experienced hands-on tech.

Sony DAV-SC8. I'm suddenly getting distortion


It sounds like the speakers themselves are the problem rather than the amp.
Although, it would be rare to have overdriven/blown the surrounds.
My suggestion would be to isolate which speakers or channels (on Amp) are at fault.
Swap left and right to see if the problem transfers across.

Flashing standby message.


Are any of the buttons not making a click feel when you press them like maybe one is stuck?? You didnt say if the same thing happen with the radio as did with the cd. If it is then a switch is stuck or bad or a problem with the switch matrix for the Microprocesor . Only way to trouble shoot this is I would use a scope and check all of the matrix {ie scann lines as well as input lines for distortion or noise and make sure when the buttons are pussed that they change and switch accordinly. If they dont then the processors bad. Good luck
