I recently "upgraded" from a Sony 655 5 disc dvd to the 685 because of the SACD function. This week the picture started to jitter and shift at the top of the screen. It happens intermittantly, with different discs, only in progressive mode. If I switch to interlaced, the problem goes away. Other than the player, my system hasn't changed and my old 655 worked fine in the system.


Given the fact that my 655 appears to work ok and the 685 only acts up in progressive scan mode, the player must be bad, right? I double checked all connections and I'm using decent component cables. I am running the DVD output through the component inputs on a Sony DA5ES receiver and then to the component inputs on a Sony 57" WV700 tv.


Any thoughts out there?

Does anyone have an opinion on this? I have to dismantle my rack to remove the unit and I would hate to do that if it's not bad. It is a royal PITA!

I am also having a similiar problem using a JVC XV-N44 on a 36XBR800. Any ideas? Have swapped players and have the same result.

I ended up swapping the player and still had the same problem. I finally traced my problem to a loose component cable at the back of the tv. The RCA connector didn't fit tightly and as my big screen was wheeled back to the wall, the cable would move in such a way that pulled it slightly out of the socket. When the tv was moved away from the wall, the connector would move back in slightly and appear connected. I ended up tweaking the rca end for more of an interference fit. Problem solved.

Are you happy with the player's SACD playback? I am considering one to replace my 3 year old JVC DVD player.

Kendrid,


Overall I'd have to say I'm pleased. Once I got my system setup correctly to optimize for SACD. The only issue I ran into was getting the SACD, DVD, receiver, and sub settings just right so I didn't have to mess with them as sources changed. Multi-channel SACD's are great but re-mastered 2-channels are not that compelling of a product, however.

Poweda,

Thanks for the insight. I started messing around with the component cables and fixed the issue. Thanks.
