The (ziva-5) DVD processor IC in these units is frequently faulty. There's lots of similar complaints on message boaards all over. I had similar problems, had my unit repaired under warranty & problems returned about a year later. Eventually the DVD function stops working altogether & you can't shut even the unit down without a hard reset. Found the following tip "Solder a resistor of 820ohms between pin 203 of IC206". Reamrkably it works. If you're not game to do it yourself, get a technician to do it, cheap fix.

I have a similar problem. After a seemingly random length of time, the counter on the display freezes and I cannot pause, stop or eject the DVD. I can change volume, change function, etc but nothing useful. The only way I can get the disc out it to turn the whole thing off and then back on. Sometimes even this doesn't work first time...
I went to a Sony shop and they said I could have it looked at, but they charge £45 just to have a look! Not sure it's worth it as I only paid a little over £200 for it.
