    Hi I'm new to this forum.
    Need some advice regarding my dvd player.
    I have a Sony DVP S530D and after playing about
    twenty movies it quit working.
    I'm getting a C:13 error (dirty disc) so I clean the disc
    and after 3,4,5 tries it might play. Now it won't play
    at all so I took it apart and cleaned the laser, didn't
    help.
    I contact Sony they say send it in I ask them what the min.
    charge is they don't tell me. I'm thinking I may as well
    just buy a new player. Any recommendations on a mid price
    player.
    I always thought Sony was a safe bet, but the last three
    things I bought a Cd player for my car, vcr, and dvd player
    were problematic.
    Maybe it's time to switch brands. Any input will be greatly apprecited.
    Thanks

    Sony is only a big name, not really the best quality/reliablity for DVD players. I've had good luck with JVC DVD players if you want a $100 or less model. If you are willing to spend $300+, Denon is good. JVC has a $20 rebate offer right now, so you can get a bargain price on the JVC XV-N40BK or XV-N50BK models, under $70 with the rebate is possible from online reswllers. Best Buy stores carry the XV-N50BK if you want to try it and have a good 30day return policy.
