Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders

Paramount DVDs won't get past the stars, Philips

Newer Paramount DVDs like Transformers 2, Iron Man, and Star Trek will freeze on the logo screen as the stars fly past the camera.

Solution: Make sure the disk is cleaned. Then, as the DVD is loading, place the DVD player on Mute. If it takes, the stars will pass. Finally, once the sequence is finished and the player moves to the next track, you can take it off mute and the rest of the disk will play fine.

Philips HTS3565D dvd player, recent Paramount DVDs (Star Trek and Transformers 2) freeze during the Paramount DVD introduction at the exact same spot: as the stars are flying in toward the camera's view. These are new DVDs. Older Paramout DVDs like Iron Man play fine, but newer ones freeze - and each in the exact same spot. I've cleaned the lens and the DVDs, but to no avail.


I have the same problem, though I don't recall which exact movies. They were all from Blockbuster. Sometimes they start to play and then halt at the end of track 1 and sometimes don't even make it tot he menu. The same movie will play on our portable dvd player. A Philips rep told me about 6 weeks ago it was a problem with a new security feature on some movies and to watch the website for a possible firmware upgrade to fix it. Now you can't even talk to someone at Philips so I don't know what to think. The "live chat" folks just want to tell you to take it to a repair shop - not much help there.
