Another Sony giving someone headaches.....not surprising.

Well I can walk you through a little unknown procedure to reset the optic blocks focus and tracking settings. They drift after awhile and will cause unstable reading of even stamped discs. You will need your DVD player's remote control to do the procedure...You will also need the following discs to perform the adjustment....a single layer stamped DVD, a standard audio CD, and a dual layer stamped DVD.

1. Remove any disc/s from the player and shut it off.

2. On the remote control, hit the following keys in order as shown, and within a 5 second period.....TITLE/CLEAR/POWER...on some remotes it might not have TITLE, so use the key SUBTITLE instead.

3. A blue menu screen appears. Select "Auto Drive Adjustment".

4. Next, select "ALL"

5. The player will begin by requesting a certian may be the single layer DVD, or dual layer DVD, or the audio CD. Insert the type of disc it requests. Keep in mind, that all functions are done by the remote control. The on screen instructions will tell you what key to press.

6. As it goes through its alignment, it might ask if you want to continue with the focus adjustment during its alignment phase....hit "enter" on the remote to confirm to continue with the focus adjustment, it might ask this for all 3 types of discs inserted. Just let the unit proceed with the self adjustments.

NOTE: If the unit detects any problem, the adjustment procedure will stop and ask you to remove the disc. Make sure the discs you use for this little adjustment procedure are clean, no scratches of any kind or dirt, and they MUST be stamped/store bought discs. If you use burned discs, that will totally throw the alighnment out of spec and it may never recover!!!

Once the prodedure completes for each disc, power down the unit, then turn on again and try your discs. The prodecure will readjust the focus amplifiers, the tracking amplifiers and optical emitter and pickup settings to compensate for component aging. 9 times out of 10 this procedure will fix most problems with the Sony DVD player goofing up on discs. This procedure is recommended if your player is over a year old. If you follow this procedure once a year or twice a year depending on how often the DVD player is used, you can prolong the life of the player 10 fold.

Hope this helps!


Here..I will fix it!
