Great system

Dave, Amazon
11 June 2011
  • Summary: I don't know why so many people have issues with this system. It still works excellent to this day, I have an optical audio setup with my xbox slim and HD sony and they all work beautifully in concert. The subwoofer is powerful and the speakers are also pretty powerful.

Undependable video but Okay sound

Path To Wisdom, Amazon
5 August 2010
  • Summary: The unit is working today in August 2010. No I don't depend on it to watch dvds, as I have another dvd player for watching videos. This was sort of a gift from someone. The DVD player was great when it decides to work.

  • Summary: I'm sorry to say that I too have seen the 'standby' glitch but in the past I was able to unplug the system and power it back on to fix the problem. UNTIL TODAY Now when I power on the system it flashes 'DVD' for a second, then goes blank. I cannot eject or insert a DVD. No display on the TV.

Defective product

Cartoon Fan, Amazon
18 July 2006
  • Summary: Wish the negative reviews had been on Amazon when our family first purchased 2 of these systems. Even when the product works, it's painfully slow to change & read discs; now both our units have the developed the same problem others have reported, namely getting stuck on "STANDBY" instead of turning...

Everyone posting reviews is correct: this product is junk.

Mary, Amazon
23 April 2006
  • Summary: I'm having the *exact* same problems everyone else is: mainly that the unit will not power off (just bliks "Standby" repeatedly) and I have 2 DVDs stuck in the machine that are unretrievable. It's been a little crappy since day one and has continued to go downhill ever since.

DVD Dream System was certainly no dream...

April Edman, Amazon
15 March 2006
  • Summary: In the past I have been a very loyal Sony customer; however, this DVD Dream System was by far the worst Sony product I've ever purchased. I purchased the system less than two years ago. The DVD player started acting up (not playing) about two months ago despite limited use.

Recommend that you do not purchase this machine

K. Newman, Amazon
24 January 2006
  • Summary: The machine exhibits substantial mechanical problems after less than 1 year of minimal use; unable to eject DVD's, the machine stays in "Standy Mode" until I manually unplug it. I strongly recommend that you don't purchase this. It seems very unlike SONY to produce such a piece of trash.

defective design

B. Morrison, Amazon
24 January 2006
  • Summary: It should be obvious to anyone that is reading these posts that this unit design is defective. Around a month into ownership, my unit became unresponsive, no stopping, pausing, ff or ejecting DVD's. The remedy was to unplug for a few minutes, reset and try again.

DAV-FC7 high pitched whine

P. A. Wakim, Amazon
6 January 2006
  • Summary: I have the Sony Dream System DAV-FC7, and now its experiencing a continuous high pitched whine on all inputs except dvd, even when no input cables are connected. It seems to be a common problem as its mentioned on many web forums. A piece of JUNK, I will never buy Sony again.

Listen to what people are saying - don't buy this unit - rethink Sony quality

Brian L Brocker, Amazon
17 December 2005
  • Summary: I've had a Sony DAV-FC7 for about 1 1/2 years. I knew when I bought it that there were a few bad reviews, but like anything, it's expected that not everyone will be happy with it and there will be a bad experience here or there. Plus it wasn't a top of the line device anyway.
