Re: picture freezes in the middle of playback

When a dvd or cd player freezes while playing , it could be a few differant things . First thing I would check is to make sure the disc and the lens has no dirt and dust on them, Next I would check the slider assy rail for dirt ,dust or hardened grease. Next I would check the tracking gain and tracking offsets. Without training, about the best you can do is the first or maybe the second BUT the alighnments should be left to a pro as you need alighnment disc and equipment to do this alighnment. Good Luck

Sounds like sled motor [the motor that help to spin the disc inside] is faulty. This is purely a mechanical fault. Contact any service technician. The CD drive mechanism should be taken out from the device, for repair. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

    Player suddenly freezes

    Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

    The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

    Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:

    DVD Freezes during playback

    it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.
