Is the player new? If it's a new DVD player and still under warranty, I would return it, exchange it or possibly, consider changing brands: perhaps to a Phillips brand DVD player. After all, the Phillips corporation guarantees its DVD players will play everything, just read the box in which the player's packaged - it's the best bang for your buck. With DVD players being so inexpensive these days, the best option is to buy new. Keep computing Chomskyites.

My dbpower portable dvd player won't play my dvd I rented.


Try playing a dvd you own that has no visible scratches. If it plays fine then your rental dvd may be bad. If let the movie store know they should give a free rental. I would use a cleaning dvd to clean your player just in case.

Help, my Sony S360 BD play says "invalid" to two


The chances of getting 2 bad rentals in a row are very slim, but not impossible. If your player plays all other DVDs fine, then my money's on the Redbox DVDs being bad, or even fake (people have been known to keep the actual movies, and return fakes to the machine).

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.

Dvd stops playing and freezes less than 6 months old


Try to use lens cleaner. If lens cleaner doesnt solve the problem. Check your warranty. Or inquire to the store where you bought it.

Movies are freezing


it depends on the condition of your dvds and how old your player is.
try using a DVD disc cleaner. This cleaner looks just like a disc with some extra little brushes on its surface. Some DVD cleaner kits even come with supplies to clean and modify scratches on your discs. if this dont work you may want to get a new player..

please leave a fixya rating as thats how we get paid...

Disk error message when trying to view dvd


It's a dirty drive motor. I have the same unit with the same error. Remove the screws underneath and the unit will open up. Flip the motor assembly upside-down and remove the sticker. Spray contact cleaner in all the holes and turn the spindle by hand. Take a small flat blade and pry off the black top. It should slide off with minimal resistance. Remove the two micro screws and take the motor out of the assembly. Again, spray contact cleaner in the holes and spin the motor by hand. Reassemble and watch your movies.

I have the same problem with rentals. Even discs barely scratched or with fingerprints. The ilo recorder is great for recording but not really a good player. Try watching a disc you recently recorded. If it still messes up maybe it needs cleaning? May be getting too hot too, check your clearance around your unit.

Player suddenly freezes


Try running a dvd cleaner through it first, before trying anything else (the type that looks like a DVD with a brush underneath).

The regular DVD might have been a fluke (scratches, rental?, burned dvd?)

Was there anything special about the new Blu-Ray Disc - what was the tile? On certain titles, you may need the firmware upgrade found at:

Movie skips and freezes during play


CD and dvd disc cleaners will not solve the problem, a deeper and delicate cleaning procedure by cleaning the lens manually with an cotton swab is needed...
Although the quality of newer discs is to be discussed.
