Having problems with Sony DVP-875P 300-disc changer carousel tray.  When powering on, the unit often takes minutes to 'center' on the proper carousel slot.  Sometimes, the wrong slot (usually, slot + 1) is selected.

Is there any way to calibrate the carousel tray for proper alignment?

Is this indicative of the need to clean a sensor (due to dust, etc.)?

Is this indicative of a slipping belt or motor?

Any advise will be appreciated!

Check the following link to see if the service manual is available.  I would expect the calibration procedure to be in the service manual.

The 850 player has a dvd calibration feature that can be activated by going into the service mode. Try and see if it works for this one too
To enter this mode mode press: Title, Clear & Power On
