Re: phillips dvd player
OK lets start off by getting rid of the CD lens cleaner (CD cleaners do more damage then good). Now first we need to clean that lens with a DVD lens clearner (finer cleaning surface). Try to run the DVD cleaning disk twicw (no more) and try to play a DVD. If this does not work. You may have to test the laser power. get a schematic for the DVD that you have, and use it to let you know the specific power measurement of the power, This is done by using a laser power meter, you may not have one, so this becomes a moot point, but on the off chance that you do, use the laser power meter to measure the laser energy and make sure it is to specs as seen on the schematic. If you do not have a laser power meter., well I hate to tell you this but you may have to get a new unit. See the problem is the process of fixing this problem is simple if you have the right equipment, but if you don't you are at a disadvantage.

Have you been using this DVD player for several years? If so, there may just be residue on the lens inside, which keeps it from reading a DVD and causes it to freeze. Have you tried running a cleaning disc through it to see if that fixes the problem? Worth a try. ;)
You Need to go to walmart buy you a disk cleaner kit the wipes not the Machine. Wipe each disk you put in and try to make it threw all of them, Most important Go to Radio Shack or The Shack and purchase yourself a CD/DVD Laser cleaner it is just like a DVD with cleaners on the one side. You just put it in the machine and follow the steps.Remember to rate my solution and give testimonial it is how i earn my achievements Thanks in advance.
Is the player new? If it's a new DVD player and still under warranty, I would return it, exchange it or possibly, consider changing brands: perhaps to a Phillips brand DVD player. After all, the Phillips corporation guarantees its DVD players will play everything, just read the box in which the player's packaged - it's the best bang for your buck. With DVD players being so inexpensive these days, the best option is to buy new. Keep computing Chomskyites.
Have you or your daughter ever cleaned it?? The scan head is most likely dirty, there are special cd's to clean DVD's /CD players. Also, you may want to buy something to clen the CD's while your at it.
You tried cleaning the lens right? That's the first thing I would do. You may have to actually open up the unit and use some windex on a cotton swap to clean the lens. Be very careful not to overwet the cotton swab. Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens.
The red wavelength of light from the laser might not be getting through the lens properly, which is used for the Audio CDs, where the higher frequency laser is used for the DVD material.
Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
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.
