Question about Curtis DVD8009 Player
My son's 3 month old DVD player suddenly began freezing shortly into his DVD movies. It doesn't make any difference if it is an older DVD or a brand new one right out of the package, it starts out perfectly, advances just so far into the movie, and the screen freezes until eventually the "Curtis" screen saver is displayed with a small rectangle icon (that is not even mentioned in the instruction manual) on the upper right hand side of the screen. None of the buttons on the unit seem to respond although when pressed, you can hear the disc start spinning again. This problem began suddenly after working perfectly since he got it. The problem also seemed to occur about the same time the battery stopped holding it's charge (playing unplugged for approximately 5 minutes before shutting off-up until then, it played for close to 2 hours. It was not dropped or exposed to extreme hot or cold. Please advise!
Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

Try cleaning the DVD lens with a cotton swab moistened with isopropyl alcohol. The DVD lens is what emits the laser from the unit. Let it dry and try again. Also try using a different DVD. Let us know if it worked and don't forget to rate me :)
