Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

1 Answer

DVD freezes I bought a set of 6 used DVDs and have watched the first two. They freeze at odd intervals. When I take the discs out and wash them with warm water and mild detergent and dry them with a lint-free towel, they play well for a while and then freeze again, but not in the same place. I don't see any scratches.My wife uses the DVD player frequently and has not run into this problem before.

If these disks are copyed DVD your player may not be able to read them the right way! Try them on another player to see if its the dvds or the player! (all Players do not read all dvd types)

Many of my burned DVDs tend to freeze while watching! After about 20 minutes into the movie the freezing begins...ONLY ON BURNED DVDs +r or -R !


It is not the system it is the dvds. If they are burned or have been burned that means you have to get new dvds.........

Freezes during playback


Hi. What I am trying to establish from my last question is whether the laser has become heat sensitive or whether there is a bit of dust buildup on the spindle table that might be causing the disc to have excessive wobble.
If the disc has excessive wobble, then the machine will have trouble tracking the outer tracks and will constantly skip as you have described after say 30 to 45 minutes.
If the laser has become heat sensitive then the same problem could potentially occur - The only difference being that if you were to restart the movie at that point, then the skipping would continue even at the beginning of the movie.
The first problem (wobble) is easy to fix - Clean the spindle table, the second problem may render the unit uneconomical to repair.

Philips HTS3565D dvd player, recent Paramount DVDs (Star Trek and Transformers 2) freeze during the Paramount DVD introduction at the exact same spot: as the stars are flying in toward the camera's view....


I have the same problem, though I don't recall which exact movies. They were all from Blockbuster. Sometimes they start to play and then halt at the end of track 1 and sometimes don't even make it tot he menu. The same movie will play on our portable dvd player. A Philips rep told me about 6 weeks ago it was a problem with a new security feature on some movies and to watch the website for a possible firmware upgrade to fix it. Now you can't even talk to someone at Philips so I don't know what to think. The "live chat" folks just want to tell you to take it to a repair shop - not much help there.

The movies are begining to freeze. how do we clean the dvd player and do you think that is what is causing it


Hi I am vortash the most likely reason for pixel freeze is dusty and dirty discs .. or scratched and badley treated discs .. when these marvellous dvds an cds came out I remember when the selling point was that they could be scratched and still play ... RUBBISH ... if scratched the laser is deflected and the system struggles to catch up with the stream of information coming off the disk .. so yes it will cause this get a good cd dvd cleaner and run it in the machine and use the solution and cloth on your dvds before you insert them .... Regards Vortash

Seinfeld DVD episodes won't play


It is probably not your VCR. If it is only the Seinfeld DVD's then the format that the production company wrote on those few episodes are incompatible with your vcr. I know I'm not solving your problem much, but don't go waste money on a brand new Vcr when not needed.

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.
