Question about Toshiba SD-2800 DVD Player

Open Question

Toshiba DVD Player skips/freezes sometimes.

I have burned a few home movies on DVD using DVD+R. They tend to skip and/or freeze in my Toshiba player, and not always in the same spot. Sometimes they will play all the way through without skipping. The DVD's play fine on my computer and on our older Sony DVD player. I have tried using a lens cleaner (CD Disk) twice, but I still get intermittent skipping.

Any suggestions?

Should I try a different brand of DVD?

Could it be the software I am using to burn the DVD's.

Is there a better way to clean the lens in my DVD player?

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.

SOURCE: dvd player stops/skips. Cleaned rails, cleaned

If the laser is not dirty then it's probobly worn so will only play disc's if brand new.
You could get it fixed but would cost between $50 and $100

Often the cause is wear and tear. The glides become worn or the spindle motor begins to slows or the laser lens has become scratched.

a_tren,

The most possible thing which cause skipping and stalling display are this:

1) The optical lens of your player might have some dust or any small particles blocking the beam of the lens.

solution: if you have guts , open and clean the optic lens using cottons buds. It would not be advisable to apply any liquid to the buds for it my cause blurry or moisture to the lens.Also use cotton buds which is soft at the end and gently wipe the optic lens in circular motion.

if still the same problem? the 2nd cause would be:

2) this time it would be more technical. Most probably the resistance of your spindle motor already change (this normally happens to every DVD player) the normal resistance of spindle motor is around 200ohms. and if there's a change or drop of resistance this would cause skipping and sometimes cause not able to detect disc or read disc.


note: if you try my 1st suggestion and still the same problem.It is advisable to seek a help from a qualified technician.

cheers,
mark

My burned dvd will only play for a few minutes then freezes


Hello, this is more than likely the media you're using. The best to use for this are verbatim-r or taiyo yuden-r dvds. Also, could be your burner. Imgburner is the most popular one used which is free

DVD Freezing / skipping


It almost has to be the discs. Try them in a friends unit.

I had a similar problem with DVD's I burned and had printed labels and put the label on the discs. It caused the disc to be out of balance. I peeled them all off (what a job) and the discs play fine now. I'm now a "magic marker" person... :)

Clean laser lens with canned air Then clean the rubber circular area off (part that disc fits onto) then try to see if it stops freezing &skipping.

Movie freezes, skips.


Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
