Sony DVP-S530D C:13:00 error

    Over the past couple of years, I have read alot about this problem. I
    have read about the class action suit against sony, ben morris's fix,
    all the complaints, etc. Last week I finally got fed up with mine and
    went and bought a new one. I bought a Sony DVP-NS775V (stayed with
    sony because I have a Sony visa card with about $400 worth of points to
    use up). I am disappointed with the picture quality and I think that
    my old 530d has a drastically better picture. I had the choice of
    exchanging my 530d for a refurbished one for $252.19:

    http://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web...on=modelSearch&searchText=DVPS530D&exchRep=no

    Repair it for $133:

    http://eservice.sony.com/webrma/web/displaycost.do?operation=forceRepair

    Or buy the DVP-NS775 for $116.99 at circuit city and getting that
    credited back to my credit card.

    I chose the third one but after seeing the picture quality of the 775,
    I am looking into repairing my 530d myself. Below are links to what
    may be replacement parts.

    I bought my 530d back in 2000 and spent $299 on it because I wanted a
    nice DVD player that I planned on using for 10 years or so. Other
    players at the time were available for less that $150, but I went ahead
    and spent the extra money because I thought I was getting a better
    quality player. I love everything about the 530d-picture, menus, look,
    sound, decoding, digitalout, hookups- except that I have to fight with
    the thing and sometimes skip entire chapters to make it through a
    movie. It will play some dvds flawlessly and won't play others that
    are brand new strait out of an unopened box.

    Specifically, what is the cause of the C:13:00(diry disc) error and the
    part number needed to replace?

    Is it the fuse that ben morris replaced?

    Is it the spidle motor that has a part cost of about $6?

    Is it the optical pickup? Are these replacement pickups?

    http://www.electronix.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/1_23/products_id/11146

    Is there a part available at www.partstore.com or
    www.mcmelectronics.com?

  2. Usually a bad pickup, which is sold as a complete assembly, the
    A-6062-397-A.
    This model is not of the same affected series as the ones you're thinking
    of, which include the DVP-S360, and DVP-S560D, though the pickup is the same
    type.

    There were some resistor values in the 360's etc which tended to result in
    the pickups being overdriven and the coils shorting out. This does not apply
    to your DVP-S530D.

    Replacing the motor only is not an option for most people, even if you can
    get one. This mechanism is not designed for service, though a technician can
    sometimes sway a spindle motor from a scrapper. Problem is resetting the
    disc platter height, which is pretty critical.

    Weighing against repair in my opinion is that the 530D will not do CD-R's,
    except for "special" silver CD-R's.

    Also new models will do newer formats and often include JPG picture
    viewers.

    Thanks for your reply. So, most likely the optical reader needs to be
    replaced and the proper part is found here:

    http://www.partstore.com/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductSKU=1878809&ProductType=PART
    http://mcm.newark.com/NewarkWebCommerce/mcm/en_US/endecaSearch/partDetail.jsp?SKU=32-18065&N=4

    And these that are $27 will not work:

    http://www.electronix.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/1_23/products_id/11145

    Thanks,

    I found this. Will the KHM-240aaa replace the KHM-220aaa and be an
    updated laser that will read CD-r's? Apparently the KHM-220AAA is
    single lens/single laser diode and costs about $100 and the KHM-240aaa
    is a single lens/dual laser diode and costs $27. One person says it
    works as a replacement and another one says the the connector pins are
    different.

    http://www.audioasylum.com/scripts/t.pl?f=hirez&m=181185

    I found this mention of a KHM-220AAA for $14, but I think it is a
    foreign company.
    http://www.freelists.org/archives/techassist/10-2002/msg00462.html

    I also found a part KSS-220A for $51.
    http://www.electronix.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/1_23/products_id/8444

    I know the easiset thing to do would be sending the unit back to sony
    for the $133 repair, but I like tinkering with things myself and would
    probably go for the $27 routh if anyone knows if it works.

  5. They aren't interchangeable.
