Hi I am vortash the most likely reason for pixel freeze is dusty and dirty discs .. or scratched and badley treated discs .. when these marvellous dvds an cds came out I remember when the selling point was that they could be scratched and still play ... RUBBISH ... if scratched the laser is deflected and the system struggles to catch up with the stream of information coming off the disk .. so yes it will cause this get a good cd dvd cleaner and run it in the machine and use the solution and cloth on your dvds before you insert them .... Regards Vortash

Rca dvd player movies freeze up


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. ;)

Picture freezes while dvd player playing


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, the stepper motor that moves the laser is sticking on the worm gear or excessive ware on the gear linkage is preventing it from moving.

Dear Sirs, Recently, my Sharp dvd-video combi player has been encountering some problems regarding the playing of dvd's. When I watch a movie, in several occasions the movie will freeze up. And for...


the DVD unit in your sharp is a self contained unit. IT is only repaired by replacing the DVD as a assembly. the cost of replacing may exceed the cost of purchasing a new one.
The most likely cause of your problem is in the brass gear assy that runs the optical pick up in the traverse deck. IT is not an available part.

Screen keeps freezing duing dvd play


This is a problem that is all to common, it is the laser pickup assembly that is causing your movies to freeze, in rare cases if the laser is dirty it might fix the problem, but in general it does not work when you clean it, and besides the pickup is well shielded in it's housing to allow dirt in.

Freezes during playback


Hi. What I am trying to establish from my last question is whether the laser has become heat sensitive or whether there is a bit of dust buildup on the spindle table that might be causing the disc to have excessive wobble.
If the disc has excessive wobble, then the machine will have trouble tracking the outer tracks and will constantly skip as you have described after say 30 to 45 minutes.
If the laser has become heat sensitive then the same problem could potentially occur - The only difference being that if you were to restart the movie at that point, then the skipping would continue even at the beginning of the movie.
The first problem (wobble) is easy to fix - Clean the spindle table, the second problem may render the unit uneconomical to repair.

hi,

this cause freezing the movie is due to your disc. your disc may contain total scratch or your dvd player seems to be choosy,mostly original dvd players do not read pirated dvd. This may cause also by your laser,there might be defected part of it,,i hope this may help you feel better regarding your dvd player concern,

The movie freezes


if the bottom of the dvd is scratched it can cause this issue, if it's not scratched there may be a defect in the way the dvd was written. If you are playing from a file on your computer that has been downloaded, it may be partially corrupt, or the player has old codecs. Try using a different player like VLC on your computer, or use a CD/DVD cleaning kit, and a DVD player cleaning disc.

Freezes halfway through the movie


Use a good dvd cleaner & clean the player. If this works then problem solved, if not then check the back of the dvd for deep scratches. those are the two common causes of the problem you describe. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
