MY DAV-C770 has the exact same problem ...when watching a movie it will intermittently pause or freeze ...then continue. It will do this 20 or 30 times throughout a movie. I asked a tech at Sony for help and he told me the laser reader is out of alignment. The minimum amount to have the dvd player sent out and repaired is $200.00, and thats if it does not require any parts. with a new laser reader it will be about $400.00. Almost the same price as a new dream system. Not worth fixing. I used to think really highly of Sony - until now. Jackal

Make sure your speakers and dvd player disk is clean. Skips are common from the lazer reading and will read much better with a quick check on the cd.

CD player skipping and pausing at start up

CD player lens run on a ratchet teeth system that moves up and down. When you hear it clicking, it could be that the mechanism has either fouled, or has teeth missing, or is damaged. It might be possible to correct the problem, sometimes with superglue. But it needs looking at to determine the damage.

Pauses randomly during films, all front buttons play/pause the dvd

Maybe one or more buttons jammed or wet inside.
Try opening front panel and clean the contacts. If problem persists then it is the buttons controller IC/PCB faulty.
