Image 1/2: I found it interesting that there are so many screws on this part of the assembly. My guess is that Sony thinks that this is where A) the cables get connected and you want a secure connection and/or B)Being that other devices are to be hooked intt this device if anything where to be dropped off a Tv of Entertainment unit this part of the device would stand a better chance of not getting damaged.  I have seen that before, Twisted RCA connectors that don't work anymore. Image 2/2: Now remove the Input/Output Board being careful with the connectors and the switch on the lower right
  • In order to remove the I/O Board you are going to go to the back of the unit and remove the six (labeled in red) Screws.

Image 1/3: Unscrew the four screws (Circled in red) in order to remove the Processing board. Image 2/3: Then the remaining two from the Front Pane/ LCD Board. Image 3/3: The Rear panel can be removed if needed i have circled in this last picture as to where they were located.
  • This is the Processing Board. It is directly connected to the I/O Board and to the Front panel/LCD board. I looked up a couple of the IC's and found that the one on the top right is a MPEG-Chip. Then the Small top left IC is a 32bit microcontroller. Couldn't find any more without having to hunt down Datasheets.

  • Unscrew the four screws (Circled in red) in order to remove the Processing board.

  • Then the remaining two from the Front Pane/ LCD Board.

  • The Rear panel can be removed if needed i have circled in this last picture as to where they were located.

  • Besides the case and cd/ tray at the top of the last picture there is the LCD board , the Processing Board, The I/O Board and the Power supply (in Counterclockwise)And that is a completely dis-assembled Sony DVD Player.

Here's what I don't get. You have a complete depiction of a Sony teardown. Why is there no link to where to buy parts for the DVP NS715P?
