Question about Panasonic SC-HT900 System

DVD player stops frequently during playback

My DVD player keeps stopping during playback of movies and reverting back to blue setup screen. I use only commercially bought DVD's and I can see no scratches or grease marks on the DVD's, nor do they appear to be warped. Is the laser dirty? Is it time to service - or can I fix this?

Re: DVD player stops frequently during playback

Yes first try to clean the laser with a lens cleaner. If that does not work you can then try to take off the cover and clean off the lens manually with a slightly damp cotton swab and alcohol. After that turn around the swab and dry the lens with the dry side of the swab. If that doesnt work then it Probably is out of alighnment or the spindle motor is bad, and is most likly not worth the bench charge for an estimate.

Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is

I dont think its connected. anyway, make sure DVD is clean and unscratched. If it wont help and these are commercial DVDs, then there is probably something wrong with them. If they are home made DVDs, then it may be that your player doesn't handle them well and you can try to burn it a other dvd format... look in you r manual to find out which format are compatible.. Good luck.
