Question about Sony DVP-NS575P DVD Player

1 Answer

Cannot play this disc

We've had our Sony DVP-NS575P player for about 2 years now. In that 2 years it has played maybe 5 movies. I recently took it apart and cotton swabbed the lens- and it magically played a movie. The next day we stuck one in and again it said that it "cannot play this disc". Sometimes it will play, sometimes it won't. I'm at my wits end with trying to figure out what's wrong- any suggestions?

    After inserting Dvd, it sounds like it is just spinning around. Then on the dvd screen message appears reading "cannot play this disk".
    I have tried resetting. Still didn't work. What can I do?

    My RV30 has worked perfectly for the last year until a few days ago..I insert the same movies that I have played before but now an error comes up " This type of disc cannot be played. Please insert a different disc" This doesn't make sense since the machine played these DVD movies before.

    the screen says cannot play when we put in a dvd.

    I can play certain DVDs but others will not play. I get the message that "This disc cannot be played. Please check the disc. This happens with over 90% of the dvds I put in. All are purchased DVDs. There appears to be no pattern.

    rebooted, cleaned the lens, contacted Samsung

    During the year that I've owned my unit, I have periodically had to power down a couple of times when the unit suddenly stops being able to read discs. At the moment, it does not seem to be able to read any disc, regardless of what I do.

Sony dvd player error t99

Hi Nemegraff,
I have a Sony DVP- NC665P dvd player. I burned a dvd movie and noticed I could not play it on my player. I was getting a display code "T99". I believe the "T" stands for time on the dvd.
Anyway, to my surprise, I found out if I press the "top menu" button on my remote, the dvd will start from the movie's main menu screen....then just hit enter or play and the movie will play. My problem is solved. I hope this helps you.

I am not able to play pirated dvd in my sony ns575p dvp

The reputed models will not play these being pirated versions and so it is best to choose originals to be played in your Sony player.
Unfortunately most local models will play these and so must not be taken as fault in the player.

My sony player will not play some blueray movies. what do i need to do?

The Sony DVP-NS575P DVD player is not intended for Blu-Ray media playback. You will need to purchase a Blu-Ray player to enjoy these types of discs. The good news about Blu-Ray is most models support DVD playback as well as Blu-Ray, and these players are not terribly expensive.

There is no mention anywhere in the user manual for this model DVD player about Blu-Ray support. Also in the same manual, this player cannot play discs that do not conform to NTSC standards or which correspond to the region code of the player itself. (basically model limitations)

If your DVD player works fine overall, the good news is it didn't cost you anything to ask, and no workshop charges to worry about - perhaps consider a Blu-Ray player later on if you really want one - keep the DVD player as a spare unit.

Cd/dvd player only able to play dvd's

Get a hold of your manufacturer and verify the warranty on your cd/dvd player. I do know that if the cd's are not finalized then cd/dvd players will not be able to read them. If under warranty your manufacturer can replace it or troubleshoot the problem with you over the phone.

Can a Sony DVP NS575P play divx format? If so how does one set it up to do so?

I do not think so, it needs the divx software.  Units that can play divx have it listed on the box and in the manual.
