Sony DAV S300 Problem

I've got the so-called Sony Dream System and have had an intermittent problem that's getting more consistent and more annoying. For a day or two, every once in a while, the picture would disappear in the middle of watching a DVD and be replaced by colored static. The problem seemed to resolve itself, and this didn't happen again for about one month. Last night, it started again with Monty Python & the Holy Grail SE. This time though, it's worse than ever as the picture did not come back after I shut the player off and left it off for a few minutes.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Sorry to hear your having problems with your system.

I JUST bought a DAV-S300 open box model at Best Buy here in Los Angeles yesterday for $199 ( ). Hope I have better luck!

Hope you got your problem resolved.

Are you going thru an auto switching RF Modulator? I have this system and had this problem. I replaced my RFM with a manual switch between ANT/MOD and no such problems.
