Try a different CD/DVD
1. First we must determine if the cd/dvd or the cdrom itself has a defect 2. Try at least 10 cds to test on your cd/dvd player
Try Deleting LowerFilters / UpperFilters
To do this follow the steps below:
1. Click Start -> Run (for XP) or Start Search (Vista) or search for programs and files (Windows 7)
2. Type Regedit
3. Click on the plus sign beside HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\

4. Under Class Click on the Folder {4D36E965-E325- ....} (note that the alpha numeric numbers are quite similar we only need ....65)

5. Look for UpperFilters and Delete it
6. Look for LowerFilters and Delete It
7. Restart the computer


If it did not work try
Replacing the IDE cable
1. Open thechassis of the computer (refer to your computer manual) 2. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the gray cable that looks like a belt at the back of the computer

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

the capacitors in side on the amp have gone weak. it has noticed the fault and is telling you. check the capacitors look for any sight of problems look for the end being popped up and brow-black gunk on the board around them tackie to the touch and change them. also give the boards a good clean out using a new paint brush sweep the dust out.

Do you have sound in other applications?
You could try using VLC Media Player, instructions here:

Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...
Ai-ai :)

The push-button activates a small motor that turns a small rubber belt/ band that opens the cassette door. Since it's not been used for 10 yrs, I would say these belts would have deteriorated and broken. you will need to replace them. the best bet is to open it up and check. if its the case, you should be able to source the belts on ebay.

this is easy, that OUT OF range means
the PC sending video is sending and illegall higher resolution
than the projector supports (or even less, on this old junk)
the manual on that old projector is clear on that. max.
SONY VPL-EX4 2007, 13 years old now.
and back then projectors STINK !
your manual shows this, and stinks.
what stinks worse is no matrix of legal H./V resolutions shown in the manual. (shows only 1)
so set the PC to 1400 x 1050 and do not use others . ok.
and 60Hz, are you in USA? not stated country.

Hi,

Looks like you are having a bad LCD screen, This could be due to drop damage. Cracks can be so tiny and may not be visible immediately. I would take it to a technician and get a screen replacement.

did you mute it ?

Sony Computers &... | Answered on Nov 09, 2019 | 23 views


You probably need more ram memory. Also try playing a video in your dvd player. If it plays slow and choppy you definitely need more ram memory.

If you are trying to play a video from a website (streaming) then three things can affect how smooth it plays.
1) Memory - your ram memory might be low
2) The website might be experience heavy traffic from many users.
3) The Line Speed of your internet connection from your service provider might be slow. For example: AT&T sells about 3 or 4 different packages and each one increases the line speed for uploading or downloading. If you buy the low end package the line speed is very slow on uploading and downloading or streaming. It's ok for just surfing, but nothing else.

all things can be repair,
only price to do so matters.
one mans garbage is others treasure.

can't speak for you ever.
but in my hands yes, garbage.
spend hard cash on newer more supported products.
2010 or newer is good rule.

Might be motor-boating. Used to be a fairly common fault with older less sophisticated circuitry. The cause could be anything from a fault in an interim power supply to stray feedback causing an oscillation with a low speed harmonic. Considering your description it could be the latter - impedance mismatch maybe, between the external mic and the amp input...

Sounds like you accidentally pressed the power button while you were dusting and turned it off. You just need to turn the HT-S200F back on.
It's the 1st button on the left of the control panel, which is located on top of the soundbar, in it's center. .
