Sony Electronics - Others - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Hi, I believe I know the problem having attempted to fix no less that a few dozen dvd players with similar problems. I would first try to clean the laser head with a dvd lens cleaner ( the kind with auto play and the little brushes actually on the disc.) Occasionally there may be foreign material partially obstructing the path of the laser beam causing playback for audio but not all dvd's-If that does not work I would say the dvd system has reached near the end of its life cycle ( this can be as little as a yr depending on how many total hours played and the manufacturer.) it can be the laser has gotten a little weak but more often than not the video digital to analogue has over heated just one to many times and is now on the fritz. I have never successfully repaired a dvd player that played music but not movies ( they're too cheap to buy these days to put so much effort into unfortunately-although as I said dirt can't be ruled out-I really had a game console that somehow had a dusty lens.) I hope this was of some use, thank you for choosing FixYa, write back to let us know if this helped or if we can be of further assistance,good luck-Prodzilla

The only problem is finding the right adapter to use with the iPad. It has a reader you can purchase but they don't fit. I think your going to need a computer to transfer.

It is most likely full of dust build up. Make sure the vents on the back, sides, top or bottom are not block by dirt. Any electronic device will malfunction when hot. These machines have a heat snyc. If you feel comfortable taking the screws out and blowing out the dust on the inside, it should work much better.
