GoldStar GBV241 Dvd Player/VCR Combo skips and freezes

No matter what dvd I put into the dvd player they all end up skipping and stalling. All the dvds I selected were in perfect condition weeks before. Every single movie is interrupted and ruined. Is it my machine?

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

No matter what DVD we put in, the player stays on "READ"


either the disc you inserted hasn't got a menu. the only thing DVD's do this is because there is no Menu provided in the DVD DISC. In the other case, where it remains "read" the disc might not be clean, scratched, dusty or simply incompatible with your DVD Player. Always clean discs before and after playing them in your DVD Player. Hope this helps, good luck!
