Question about Televison & Video

9 Answers

Trying to play a movie with cyberlink power dvd 8 and the movie plays fine up till the 13 chapter..then freezes. No scratches, brand new dvd. It will play any chapter up to the 13th, but nothing beyond that , up to the 21st chapter?? When it freezes and I turn on the monitor thing, it is only using 0-2% of the CPU. The light on the dvd door on my pc flashes and you can here it searching back and forth for data...so I end up shutting it down and trying over again...same thing. Any ideas...other movies play fine on my computers dvd player.. could it be that the movie is too large..5.96gB? thanks,Dennis in Australia

    How can it be the disc if it has no scratches and played perfectly up to the middle of the movie? I don't understand..

    I originally tried it on my LG stand alone player with the tv... but it froze on that straight away, so I used the pc which has 2 gb of ram and is a dual core 3.3mhz. The disc is made in widescreen format...but as I said it played for 42 minutes and then freezes anywhere you try it after that...but will play again and again before 42 minutes?
    Does it sound like the disc?

    I cleaned the head with a Phillips head cleaner cd..still the same problems. I have sent the disc back at my own cost to the maker in the States(I am in Oz) They are sending me a new one they have tested right through on a Sony dvd player.My players were both LG and both would freeze up?

  • If the DVD only freezes for a small amount of time somewhere in the middle of the movie, you likely have a double-layered DVD. Many DVDs with movies over 2 hours in length are double-layered to get more information on one disc. The pause in the picture is when the DVD player is switching from one layer to the next. There is no problem with your DVD player or the DVD.
  • Do not try to take the DVD player apart to clean it, or you could void your warranty.

See if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
Does the player make squealing noises after it plays for a long time or is it totally quiet? Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.
Totally silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a better word.
This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

You could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.
It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track

What about other movies. If they play OK it might be softwear or hardware problem. There are several ways to check
1. Use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk ( available in **** Smith Electronics). My Philips DVD drive always got stuck in the middle of DVD it was gone after I used the cleaning disk
2. Second way to check if you copy whole movie to your PC and check if it plays. But it might be impossible as most of DVD ar copy protected.
3,. Use anothe softwear.

If you dont have problem with other disc ,and you have problem with new disc getting freeze then its problem with disc as the part from 13 is not written on the disc properly which get it freezed and it wont respond as the player is not able to encode it properly... If can try with other software like VLC player plays the movie on computer VLC player is freeware player...

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand a mechanical problem. The carriage (where the laser optics ride) could not traverse its route. Most likely dried up lubricant on the slider bar. This would be the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grime, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Check with a small movie that is short to see if it will play all the way through you computer video card also might not be able to handle data in that sceen try on a real dvd player to see if it is comp or the disk itself also try upgrading your memory on computer to allow some extra memory

Try a different brand of blank DVD.
If that doesn't work any better, and your MacBook Pro is in fact "brand new," bring it to the Apple Store, because you have warranty redress.

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:
