Walmart DVD player freezes images

A few months ago we purchased a DVD player from Walmart for just $20. We took it to our cabin which we very seldom use. Last weekend we were there and took several new DVDs which we have purchased. All of them had times where the images froze.

I returned the player to WM in the box, but had no receipt. They said there would be no refund since they no longer carry them. Can you help?

Thanks, Bev

Well i think you got scammed,but since it was inexpensive,cut your losses and buy a new one.remember there must be a reason they no longer carry it.

DVD images freeze at certain points or playback becomes choppy


sounds like you will need to clean laser, there are cleaners you can buy out of walmart for this. Don't know if they work well, I take mine apart and use soft cloth and alcohol then letting dry, works fine for me.

Pinnacle S 10.7 DVD plays for for 15 min plus and then image free


Unfortunately I do not know what a prosumer is (do you mean producer?) but what I would do is produce an image file rather than write direct to disc and then use nero or imgburn to burn the disc.(I prefer Imgburn and not just because it is a free open source prog).

Give it a go and get back if the problem remains.

DVD player skips and freezes


you have a defective dvd player. if it is only 3 months old take it back in exchange or repair under warranty. it all depends whom you purchased the item from. you could try running a cleaning disk, but chances are the players needs to be repaired, or replaced. Don't be surprised, i've bougth several in the last couple of years, two i had to take back the same day and exchange them. All of these electronics are made so cheap, it takes two or three units to get one good one. Try to stay away from RCA, Panasonic, and LiteOn.

Dvd freezes on a frame


Well, when that has happened to me, I have examined the DVD and there are usually fingerprints on the disk and removing them with plain water on a sponge and drying with a cotton cloth has solved the problem. The more oil from the print the more disturbed the picture.

Rca vcr / dvd just stopped working


If the unit is only a few months old, it should still be under warranty. Return it to the place of purchase or at least call there to find out where to send it.

New Player freezes up on or after track 12


this is the same response to another post
the unit i purchased ran great for about 2 months then the video started to freeze. power cycled solved the problem initially, but when power cycling did not cure the problem, i started shaking and tapping the unit. at a point of throwing the unit away - took the cover off to see what's inside. with the cover off, it ran just fine . put the cover back, ran ok for a while then started freezing video again.
twisting the unit appears to make it function..
my solution that appears to work for my unit. .
loosen only the two back screws holding the plastic drive mechanism down to the bottom plate (chassis) assumption is that the metal chassis was twisting the drive mechanism and offsetting the photo pickup.
this has worked for the past 2 weeks without a problem.
