Sony DAV-FC9
 
Yeah.. this thing stinks. I paid alot of money for it, and its doing exactly what Mike B says too. Thing freeze up all the time, and now when you try to turn it off, it blinks standby indefinately. I even went to bed, and woke up 8 hours later, and it still blinks. You have to unplug it and plug it back in to get it on. (JUNK!) Everytime I buy something from sony, I get burned. This is the 5th item now from Sony, that has failed on me before or in this case just after the warrany expired (UGH). ...

Expensive Paperweight
 
For the first six months I had this it was great, but then itstarted to freeze up and would flash "Standby" all night long.For the price that I paid for this system, I expect it too last awee bit longer. This is the second Sony DVD player that I've hadthat's broken down in under a year. The quality of Sony's DVD players has really deteriorated in the last few years, I wouldn't recommend buying a DVD player from Sony at all - and I certainly would...

If you are happy with this system now... STANDBY !!
 
I loved my system for the first couple of months,looks great,sounds great...After the honeymoon though the DVD's would start to freeze, then the carousel locked up completely, nothing in,nothing out !! Now when you turn it off it just flashes "STANDBY-STANDBY" until you UNPLUG and start over...just to use as surround sound...pathetic! I have a $30.00 Memorex DVD player hooked up to the Video 2 outlet just to play music and movies. To top it all off Sony's Customer Service is a nightmare.Read DEE...

DAV FC9, caveat emptor
 
I had my "dream" system for less than two years when it seized up, flashing "Stand By" and it would not reset. I called Sony and went to a local/approved technician who still had to ship it back to the manufacturing plant. I have been without a DVD/CD system for 4 weeks now and do not have a commitment to get it back. The latest estimate is $300 to fix it, not covered by warranty. I should've stuck with RCA, my previous system was 15 years old and still functioning. Sony's dream is my night...

Great System, but it only worked for a month
 
I bought this on Amazon, from J&R Music. Unfortunately I didn't unpack it; just brought it overseas with me to where I work. It has only been two months since I bought it and it's already causing me grief. Every so often the picture freezes, or the counter freezes on the DVD player and the only way to re-set it is by turning off the power. Sure, the system worked great at first, but only for that month. This is very dissapointing considering the cost and I can't return it as I am in a r...

very slow
 
Overall the system is nice: it sounds fine for a low end system and the picture quality is fine. But I hate using it as a CD player. It takes forever to switch between disks, about 30 seconds. Loading or ejecting a disk take even longer. There is no way to tell what disks are loaded in the machine, and you cannot change one disk while it is playing another. These seem like minor things, but when you walk in to the room and turn on the stereo to listen to some music they add up to a 5 minute...

RE: good value
 
The system is attractively styles, easy to set up, and has clear instructions and packaging. I set up the entire system in about 20 minutes. I then ran the test tone to configure the system in my living room. The system itself runs great, the sound works very well, the amp/dvd unit is sleek and compact.I wanted something that did not cost a huge bundle that would provide affordable 5.1 sound. I found it.

fell apart in three years
 
I bought this unit in 2004, and it fell apart by Jan. 2007. I got the flashing standby problem disucssed a lot by others here, and I could not play any disc with this unit. It will not even take in any disc, and the only thing still works is sound/speakers. Called customer service, very unhelpful - they just sent me to local service shop. I am very disappointed for paying over $700 for a Sony system that only lasts three years.

Fantastic HTIB
 
This system is a fantastic HTIB (Home Theater In Box). The DVD player provides a very high quality picture (especially if you take advantage of the component outputs). It may take a while to change CD's when listening to music, but if you just burn an MP3 cd then you can listen to aboyut 250 songs on one CD anyway. The head unit is also sleek and attractive.The surround sound is fantastic with this system. With each channel at 100w and an ACTIVE (this is important) 150w subwoofer I don...

Sony DAV-FC9 DVD is Junk
 
I bought a Sony home theater with DAV-FC9 DVD player and it lasted less than 2 years. The other reviews indicate the same problem with the system dying at a very young age. I paid the Sony price to get a good system to go along with my Sony WEGA Plasma TV but it didn't work out that way. We used the DVD very little but now the Player is in total lock up. All we get is the "Standby" flashing for hours on end. All buttons are locked up and don't function. We Can't get DVDs in or out of the pla...
