Question about Durabrand DUR7 Portable DVD Player

1 Answer

Sips freezes then continues

After playing a movie for a little while..maybe 1/4 through, it starts to skip, then it freezes for a moment and then continues on like there was no problems. It will play the dvd fine for a little while then do it again...this continues on through the movie. I've cleaned with a laser disc cleaner, I've done the little black button trick (which solved the loading but not really loading problem) But I still can't figure out why this problem still exists. My kids use this player more than I do as we travel between states alot. I through one out and bought this one because the first one I was watching was doing the same this one...I'm not sure why, what is causing it or how to fix it...this problem occurs with new dvd's as well...please help...

Philips hts3541 wont play new blu-ray movies

Sounds to me like a laser alignment issue, quickly get a support case going with the Manufacturer as most have a one year warranty whether or not you have a receipt.

It freezes while playing dvd's about every ten minutes. It does allow you to skip forward and continue playing but makes you skip an entire chapter. What causes it to freeze?

Mt SD-1800 does the same thing, plays for awhile and then gets stuck. I took it apart and cleaned the rails and the optical lens but no help. I noticed that the head did not slide back and forth without cogging. It turns out that the little pinion gear on the motor was cracked. Every revolution it would catch on the tooth by the crack. I doubt that there are replacement parts available.

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.

My Memorex MVBD2520 Freezes for 1 second while playing standard DVD's.....Does anyone know how to fix this problem?


I've had the same problem--I called Memorex and the technician told me how to fix the problem. So far, so good, but I've only had one movie on. You'll need your remote control to do this:

1. Power on the player without a disc inserted. Wait for the Blue Memorex screen to appear.

2. Near the bottom of the remote, there are four circle buttons. The third one says USB/SD above it. Press it.

3. At the bottom left-hand corner of the screen, a little menu appears. Make sure USB is not selected--the technician says that the reason it skips is because it is looking for a USB connection while playing.

I have mine set to the first, BD. If you live in the US, you can call them if this does not work at 1-800-919-3647.

Let me know if this helps!

Very annoying problem there.

First, make sure your disks are completely clean. Some lasers are just weaker by nature and won't read well through scratches, smudges and peanut butter finger prints.

Second, make sure you have your DVD Player well ventilated. If the vents are only on the bottom, try elevating the four corners with small blocks to give it some extra breathing room. Run a vacuum or use compressed air to clean the vents. Also, if you feel you're up to it, you can usually remove the top cover of a player to clean inside without voiding the warranty.

DVD Freezes during playback

it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.
