I just purchased this dvd player. When the dvd is playing, occasionally the screen will flicker like an old 8mm film. I had the same problem with the drc285 it eventually started locking up or have a double horizontal image on the screen.

The older laser player/burners may have used a different angle for the read/write service. It is like a phonograph needle sitting in a groove that tracks the data as it pans the surface.
Try to COPY the CD/DVD to the desktop if you can. If you know the OLD player worked, use that to COPY the Data to your Current computer desktop and then copy that back to new CD using the new hardware.
Check the connections between the DVD player and the TV. If using RCA cables, replace them, as one may be defective. If using S-video, check its connection is secure. It is probably just a bad cable connection or in the case of the standard yellow-white-red RCA, this is probably defective at its sealed plug points - replace this.
If checking/replacing cables does not fix the issue, the DVD player and/or TV may require workshop attention, which could prove costly. I hope it's just something simple, like bad cables/connections.
Make sure the audio cables (most likely the red and white ones) are securely plugged into the back of the player and your tv or amp whichever you are using. If that doesn't fix it try replacing the audio cables. If the problem still occurs see if the DVD has a mute function and make sure it is unmuted (this will most likely reset after a restart so it's unlikely the problem). If the problem still occurs the unit may need to be replaced or repaired.
I had this same problem and held down the play button after unplugging the player. What i found was that i could boot up, but that shortly after the screen would scramble and alternate between static images and a green screen that flickers. I believe the single chip that drives this has failed.
