Re: All DVD`s installed in player skip .Also DVD`s that...

First thing i would do i clean the lens with 90% isoprople alcohol and a q-tip, if that doesn't work watch the laser eye again and the movement is the laser look like it tries to catch up???
i would put a dc volt meter on the motor and the motor should stay at lower voltage if it climbs then there is something with the rails or worm gear. let me know what you find out.

The door to the dvd player is stuck partway open on my zenith vcr / dvd combo player

the gears on the drawer skipped a few teeth. as crazy as this sounds, give it a stern whack back in. if the plastic teeth are flexible enough to skip teeth one way, it'll be flexible enough to skip some the other way.

Created and burned a DVD with imac (iDVD) software. Plays fine on computer, but music skips when I play on Zenith DVD Player. Tried burning at slower speed, but same issue. Can anyone help? Thanks.

The Audio file may not be supported on the DVD player, or try another disk in the DVD player (another movie) see if the sound still skips

you could check the red and white audio cables (or HDMI if you have it) make sure they are not loose or disconnected

How do you know if you have a Progressive Scan TV? We are having problems playing DVD's from video stores. It will play the previews, but when it gets to play the movie, it doesn't play. I can play them...

Well, a progressive scan TV displays in the same resolution as a normal interlace TV. It's very hard to tell the difference in all respect.

Progressive rewrites every single line/pixel on the screen. Interlaced simply skips a line and rewrites half of the lines every frame. So, progressive can show higher quality, but interlaced was more predominant as it was easier to create for TV makers in the earlier days.

Most of today's better televisions are strictly progressive and you won't have any problems.

I'd try a different DVD player with the selected titles and see if the problem persists. It could be the TV or the or the player itself. If the titles work in another DVD player. Try a newer television and see if it works there.

Hope these ideas help.

Remove and replace the graphite grease from the laser transport worm gear assembly (use the correct Technics stuff), replace the worm gear drive belt, and ensure that the tension spring on the C-shaped plastic piece that rides the gear is OK
