My DVD Player has recently stopped playing some DVD's. While it continues to play others from my private collection of movies that usually comes in box sets. And the 50 Movie packs, they play quite well. It is the Netflicks that I am having trouble with. I have used a disc cleaner to clean, before and after. And washed the discs with mild detergent soap, and gently wiped dry. Any suggestions why this is happening....4 out of the last 5 movies Netflicks sent does not play. And if I need to get a cheap DVD player and hook it up (don't watch media TV)is that possible with a TV Unit that has built in DVD/VCR player? Thanks.

Dirty laser.. scratches on discs..and sometimes laser diodes get weak and then will have issues playing discs. Some NEWER discs are a different format and the player will need a firmware update (connect to internet via Ethernet cable to get updates)
Unless you have a second DVD player (or a PC with a DVD drive or similar) on hand, to cross-reference the discs with, you won't be able to tell if it is the discs or the Daewoo player that has the issue. It could just be a bad batch of discs, but without the second player available to confirm this, there is little you can do.
On the other hand, some of the discs may not be NTSC, they may be PAL, and unless your player supports PAL compatible playback, it won't play it. Rare, but not uncommon (some PAL DVD players won't play NTSC discs regardless of the region code), and it is not your player that is necessarily at fault here.
The dvds discs u bought from the UK is play on only the DVD player that play PAL signal format. Where u live Canada,US or Mexico?DVD players in these countries.It play only NTSC signal format.U can't change DVD players regions format,only can a DVD players that have regions free to play all DVDs discs of the world.
1. You say in the (middle?) That in itself is subjective, Does it stop at an 'exact' specific point after playing for x number of minutes? Is it the same point for any DVD being played, or does it stop at a random point? - Does it stop when playing DVD--R or +R or what type of Disc? - more details helps to find a solution. Also it is never necessary to use cleaning discs - Do that and it will wreck your player - and may never read a disc again. Using cleaning discs could have caused your problem. Use cleaning discs only for practicing how far you can throw them.
I would blame it on the DVD player. They are fickle when it comes to playing burned discs. Try playing the disc in your computer. If does the same thing there, the disc is garbage. You can also try burning at a slower speed, sometimes this helps. I would also try to avoid using DL (dual-layer) discs.
