Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

DVD player picture freezes

I've had this same problem with 4 different DVD players. When playing a disc sometimes the picture (and sound) will stop. Then it'll start for a few frames and stop again. Then sometimes it will jump ahead and play a bit and freeze again. Sometimes it will then go ahead and play for a couple minutes before freezing again. The first and third players were Wal-Mart units. The second was a Sony from Circuit City. I now have a Pioneer and hooked it up and it does the same thing. I've been using a HDMI cable for the connection. It seems strange that ALL the players do the same thing. Any ideas?

Kawasaki dvd portable player hesitating during play, picture breaks up , sound stops.


These are common symptoms for all DVD players. Common causes are damaged/dirty discs or dirty laser lens. Also, if the disc is a burned disc, instead of a factory-pressed one, there can be problems. Not all brands and types are created equal. DVD+R vs DVD-R, for example, can make a difference, and so can the manufacturer.

ILO DVDR05 recorded DVD's freeze


Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman

See the manual, page 8:

What are “Recording modes”? for DVD-RW
There are two recording modes available using this
recorder: VR mode and Video mode. When recording to
a DVD-R disc, recordings are always in Video mode.
DVD-RW discs can be formatted for VR mode recording
or Video mode recording.
VR mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Not playable on regular DVD players
• Recordings can be extensively edited
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Video mode recording
• 4 different picture quality/recording time settings available
(SP, LP, EP, XP)
• Playable on regular DVD players (after finalizing)
• Limited editing features
• Total number of titles on the disc should be less than
99.
Note :
DVD-Video Format (Video mode) is a new format for
recording on DVD-R/RW discs that was approved by
the DVD Forum in 2000. You may therefore experience
problems playing recordable DVD discs in some players.
Symptoms include video artifacts, audio and/or
video dropouts and playback suddenly stopping.
Our company cannot take responsibility for problems
playing discs recorded on this VCR/DVD Recorder in
other players.

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.

DVD Player makes a slight "tick,tick" sound during playback


I would certainly take the unit back cause that noise could be the tracking or focus coils making that noise as they are being overdriver. This could cause the unit to fail prematurly. Its not an adjustment that you can do your self, it takes special equipment and disc
