Playing DVDs has become a problem. Picture/sound will stop momentarily, then restart. There is no rhyme or reason, but it happens regularly on almost all DVDs. It happens with DVDs we've never had problems with as well as new ones. The problem doesn't happen with National Geographic/Nature DVDs. We've tried cleaning the DVDs as well as the player but nothing seems to help.

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.
It sounds player get reset for some reason and most possible reason is power supply stops momentarily caused reset dvd player. If you have knowledge about electronics stuff repair then check main/ big capacitor of power supply board and replace it if found leaky to fix the issue or take it in local tv repair shop for that. Thanks.
no solution but i have exactly the same problem - the system has suddenly stopped playing any dvds at all including ones it has previously played - i get no sound or picture just a circle with a + sign in the middle on the dvd digital display
If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.
Reset you player by doing the following:
With the player on, hooked properly to your television, and on the correct station:
Open the tray
Close the tray (with no DVD inserted)
Hold the stop button down for a full 5 seconds
The CyberHome screen should appear. You should be able to play your dvd's now.
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.
