Question about Sony DVP-NC85H Multi-disc DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD player won't read discs

Hello, I have a Sony DVD player model #DVP-NC85H that does not acknowledge any DVD's in any of the five disc slots. I opened the cabinet and observed the operation when the disc changer was opened and closed. I noticed that the disc was not spinning, ie. being read. is there anything I can do or do I need professional help?

Hi Carlos.
How do you clean a DVD player? CD and DVD players have a laser lens that needs to be cleaned periodically. To maintain your DVD player, occasionally unscrew the player's case, so you can get at the lens to clean it. You need a screwdriver, canned air or a soft brush, a foam swab or camera-lens cleaner, and lens cleaning fluid from a camera store.

Don't blame your CD or DVD player every time your music or favorite movie starts skipping or refuses to play. The disc may be dirty or scratched. You can purchase a cleaning kit at an electronics store, but rubbing alcohol is a lot cheaper and you can get it at the grocery store or pharmacy. If the problem is dirt or dust, here are some tips for keeping your discs in top condition:
  • When you select a disc to play, the first thing you should do - every single time - is blow dust off, even if you faithfully keep your discs in their sleeves.
  • Next, wipe your discs with a lint-free cloth dampened slightly in rubbing alcohol every time you use them. They not only accumulate dust, but also oily fingerprints that make dust stick.
  • Put your fingers only on the edge and through the center hole.
And if your favorite disc is scratched, before throwing it out, try polishing it to remove the scratch. Disc repair kits are sold at electronics stores and some video stores.

Look on the bottom of the unit. There is a hole with the letters ex and op. Shine a light in the hole and you will see a white plastic object with a slot for a slot screwdriver. You can turn this either way but be careful. If you feel resistance and the object does not turn, turn the other direction and the unit will open. Remember if the disc loaded the clamping of the disc is in place so you must turn it the proper way to let the current disc loose hence the op and the ex. Op is open. Ex is exchange.

I am getting this error too and I believe it means that somehow the tray that the discs ride on is jammed. I think if you unscrew the three screws on the back and the two on the sides you can pop the top off and see the tray. I bet there is a disc somewhere that didn't fall back into its right spot and it will give you that error... I just opened mine up and sure enough there was a DVD that was in the way... I removed that disc and the error went away. I hope that helps you out as well.

You need to convert avi files to dvd format before burning, otherwise the player won't recognize them. Google "avi to dvd" and you'll find a number of free or pay programs that will do the conversion for you.

After variety of different tests and findings I have resolved this issue. It appears that the DVD burner was not in good working order and the DVD player was not at fault. Thanks you to all who answered and responded to my problem. Many thanks.

Has anyone ever solved the 'locked' tray problem on a Sony DVP NC85H?


Look on the bottom of the unit. There is a hole with the letters ex and op. Shine a light in the hole and you will see a white plastic object with a slot for a slot screwdriver. You can turn this either way but be careful. If you feel resistance and the object does not turn, turn the other direction and the unit will open. Op is open. Ex is exchange.

Another less elegant way is to open the unit's case, take off top cover and get your discs being held inside the unit that way. Be careful.

Of course you could take the unit in for service but may not be worth the cost.
