    I too received the hated c:13:00 message on my SONY. It is a DAV-S800, a good machine, decent design but maybe now quality is an issue. I have read a number of forums on this error and the first suggestion is to enter the Service Menu and make adjustments to Single layer then Dual layer.

    However, the Title, Clear, Standby button does not seem to work on my unit. As it is in standby mode it doesn't react at all unless the standby power is pressed first.

    Anyone know how to get into the service menu on this particular DVD player. Thanks in advance.

    I found the sequence.

    On the unit itself in power on mode, you can enter the eningeering menu on the Sony DAV-S800 and S880 by doing the following: press stop, display and turn the volume knob to the right (no cd/dvd should be inserted).

    However, using that and doing the disc drive adjustment for SL and DL still does not work to get rid of the C:13:00 message.

    If you should happen to find details of the class action aganst Sony I would be interested. All Sony DVD players seem to get this at some point in their lives. Buy a Sony DVD player entirely at your own risk. As I say, Google if you want to know just how often they fail.

    NO DISK after only 440 hours of playback on my dvp-s735d
    luckily I was not alone
    literally thousands of sony customers have suffered the same fate
    started reading up
    went & bought a new laser assembly
    fitted it myself = still no luck
    read up some more
    printed the pdf in link 2 above & went to sony & said I want this done (as I'm useless in soldering/electronics)
    after one year my player was working again
    & it still does today :thumbsup:

    I had this on a Sony 735D DVD player that started doing this after 13 months. It gradually got worse over the following year until it would not play anything.

    I ended you throwing it away since it would cost over £100 to fix and for that I could buy a brand new player with a better spec. That's the last time I send £500 on a Sony DVD player.

    In the HD format war, I'm backing HD-DVD.
