Question about Televison & Video
You should be able to simply shut the unit off, & turn it back on after a few minutes. This will reboot the player & it should perform normally. If this fails, look for a tiny reset switch somewhere on the unit. It will be marked, but may be a tiny hole with very small lettering, that requires a pencil point to activate.

Sounds like it's the wrong region disc. Try a disc that worked before and if it does than there is nothing wrong with your dvd player it is the disc you are trying to play that has the issue.

SOURCE: wondering why my dvd player
This is a common problem on Sony players.The reason with every DVD so far is that they have been PAL (a European format) instead of NTSC (an American format). This is unrelated to the "region" limitations on the disk. It is the actual size in pixels of the picture. This is no fix for the same. The entire thing would have to be re-encoded.
From what I have seen the Sony players adhere stringently to DVD Specs.
That means a NTSC version of the player will not play a PAL disc.
That also means a PAL version of the player will not play a NTSC disc.
It is understandable when you think about the fact that Sony also owns content production. Therefore their player will adhere to region settings and only the supported type of disc, NTSC or PAL.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
