Dvd player freezes up

My dvd player will play a dvd for a little while and then the picture/sound will freeze. It won't let you eject the disc or turn the player off. I have to unplug it and turn it back on to get the disc out. I just bought a cleaning disc but the player keeps saying there is an error and to eject it. I dont' know what else could be wrong? Its only four years old and I'd rather not replace it already

SOURCE: Dvd player not reading ANY disc

If you tryed to clean it and it didnt work you could have several things that went wrong and depending on what did go wrong will tell you if you wanna spend the money or buy a new one. If the laser assy went bad you probably will buy a new one. if you find a good authorized repair shop, then it may just need cleaning and a servo alighnment. or a bad spindle motor, or your missing a switched voltage on the power supply could be missing. Im sorry to tell ya that there are no user serviceable parts inside this unit unless your a tech. The only info i have for emerson is the help # Maybe they can show you where to take the unit to be servced/ 905-940-5089 Good Luck

SOURCE: Play Back

Some DVD players can't read -R & -RW disks. When you finalize make sure it is in Video mode not VR mode so the recorded disk will be able to work in most other DVD players. Also some DVD players only read recorded disks rated up to 1x, 4x, 8x, 16x, or a combination of these speeds.

SOURCE: DVD will not play disc

You need to find a good dvd cleaner and clean that real well run it a couple of times that should fix your problems. If not you may have to bring it in and get the optics cleaned by a professional. But I am confident if you get a good cleaning disk it should fix it, Happy Holidays

I can't get my DVD disc to eject. It will play but won't eject? Any suggestions


You should try unplugging the DVD player from its power source then plugging it back in. Now try to open it and if that doesn't work than you'll probraly have to take it apart to get the disk out but sometimes the DVD players can get worn out or if you have a cheaper DVD player it might just be freezing up on you. I have had these problems before. I just took the DVD player apart to get my disk and then trashed it.

Stops Playing: screen freezes


My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.

DVD player freezes


If it's a very cheap unit, it's possibly because the machine can't process the information quickly or efficiently enough, thusly causing the picture to freeze up while the processing catches up with it. Friend has a $30 unit, which happens to constantly.
