It's plays DVD's then just stops. No mater what DVD I'm watching, after a period of time, the DVD simply freezes. I thought it was the DVD player (which is under warranty) so I had it replaced, and the new one is doing the same thing.
Once it freezes, you cannot use the remote control, nothing works other then turning off the DVD player and restarting it.
I have the same DVD unit in my new camper. The COBY customer support department said there is definitely a problem and should be shipped back to them with a Money Order for $18 for shipment/handling. Must include all speakers etc. Perhaps it will be less to purchase a more reliable brand name.

Those discs have a very strong copy protection mechanism to avoid making digital copies on PC systems but some DVD players won't play them because of that, if you have the original movie, download a copy from the internet, burn it to a dvd-r disc and play it. It's perfectly legal because you already bought the movie. The downloaded copies have no copy protection and will play better than the original. The PHILIPS DVD-Home theater players are specially picky about non-standar disk like the one you're trying to watch.
hi most of the time a cleaning disk or canned air is not enough but you can tray it, you have to open your dvd player and clean you laser lens whit a cotton swabs and alcohol do not use peroxide. Do it slowly and be careful bye and good chance.
First of all,if you are using rental dvds, there might be scratch which your dvd player might have an issue to read it;however,if you have tried many dvds in this player and you are having this issue, it is time to move on to another dvd player. I recommend a Pioneer dvd player. solutiondoct
I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.
Try cleaning the lens (remove the cover, and swab at it with a DRY cotton-swab (Q-Tip) and/or hit the lens with some compressed air. (I don't recommend 'cleaning discs' -- take the time to carefully clean the lens manually it generally works better, and if you don't know how to locate the lens, call someone who can help rather than blindly poking around....)
If that doesn't work, you've got a software / hardware issue in the D/A (digital to analog) converter or the region encoding detector (if it has sat unused for a long time, that may also be what is going on here....). Try playing a 'region free' disk to see if the problem persists. If so, try powering off (and unplugging the device) for 24-48 hours, and see if that doesn't fix it. Absent that, you are talking replacing parts which at the cost of this unit makes no sense.
Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.
Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
