Philips DVDR890 Freezes and jumps frames

I have a Philips DVDR890 and ever since I have bought it its been a real pain. I find that sometimes it won't play pre-recorded films. I have to switch it of and on sometimes to get it to recognise the disc. When is does eventually play the film it sometimes freezes or just jumps scenes altogether, I assume this is when its trying to go to another layer on the disc. When I try to record and try to play back it sometimes says that the disk is empty and this is a Philip DVD+RW disc. Does anybody know if there is a fix for this?

I heard from a friend that anti-depressants are good for treating chronic back pain. Is that true for people who are not depressed as well?

Sometimes doctors use anti-depressants from the tricyclic family to treat pain conditions. You don't have to be depressed to benefit from these drugs as the dosage used to deal with pain conditions is not the same dose give for depression.

Draining the radiator

Have a look at bottom, on side of end tank, backside corner or sometimes even under, with access hole in frame. They make them a real pain to find and get to now for some reason. I guess so the average person will pay someone to do it?

Philips Blu-ray player freezes (like freeze frame) during playback. Sometimes says disc cannot be played. Takes a long time to load. Brand new disc and several rentals have problem. Upgraded firmware...

Hi maybe optical pickup is dirty, this component is the one that reads disks, you could try to use a cleaner CD or DVD to fix it, if this doesn't work, maybe the optical pickup needs to be replaced.
