Hello!!! i have dvd player ht-tz212 and when i play dvd-s it start normal but on half of every film it start freezing picture i tried to play original movies and copies,i even tried cleen dvd players lens...

Your Laser assembly (pick up) is weak, must be replaced. I don't know what you spent for your unit but it might be worth investing in a new one.

DVD Player freezing

You need to take this back if you have the option. The picture freezing lets us know that the data stream is stopping. It will not work right again and it was just coincidental that you uses a diffrent kind of dvd.

Player stuck and start

Could be dust buildup on the laser lens. You can buy a CD-ROM/DVD lens cleaner which is a disk with fine brushes on it.
It will clean the lens of any dust/dirt. Of course, make sure your DVD's are clean also. If you're inclined you can remove the cover (with the unit unplugged) and the cover protecting the laser and carefully clean the lens directly with a q-tip. Don't press hard or use any pressure, simply wipe any dust off. Do not use any solvents on the lens as some can eat the plastic and leave it useless!

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly

Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.

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.
