My lg dvd (dv 490) plays dvd then after about 30 minutes,starts to skip a couple seconds which gets worse gradually before its starts to freeze and auto-eject discs.i opened it and noticed the driving...

Sounds like sled motor [the motor that help to spin the disc inside] is faulty. This is purely a mechanical fault. Contact any service technician. The CD drive mechanism should be taken out from the device, for repair. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience.

Rented videos are freezing temporarily during playback

If the rented DVD is too scratched it will cause the DVD player to pause while it tries and find the next available playable area on the disc. This may cause the player to skip to another part of the movie. Try wiping the disc with a damp cloth from the centre towards the outer rim and dry the same way. Fingerprints ect. also cause problems. If the scratches are circular the player will have a hard time trying to play the disc. If the scratches are straight and small it shouldn't cause too much problems.

DVD player: all disks freeze or skip at same point.

with some models it's very sensitive to being level. try moving your dvd player to a common flat area. see if it's a little rocky or placing a single piece of paper under one of the corners...I had a dvd player that would freeze on every disc and since I moved it to the botton of the cable box it no longer locks up. Worth a try.

DVD+RW playback problem(s)

same prob with the shows freezing up

with a DVD+/- RW disc the amout of time keeps dropping because with every recording process the disc loses a life you can burn those disc 200 times before they become useless so the disc might be beyond the life peroid or bad

my prob is with the DVD-/+R disc tho and i figured it out the disc was bad

for the grinding noise if its hi piched its normal thats the disc spinning up to read or write speed

if that not the case something is rubbing in there and that might explaine the writting errors

the disc manurfacture dose not take resposnablity for defective disc and any loss they have caused(if the data is lost)

DVD Freezing / skipping

It almost has to be the discs. Try them in a friends unit.

I had a similar problem with DVD's I burned and had printed labels and put the label on the discs. It caused the disc to be out of balance. I peeled them all off (what a job) and the discs play fine now. I'm now a "magic marker" person... :)

Picture stalls/freezes

Clean laser lens with canned air Then clean the rubber circular area off (part that disc fits onto) then try to see if it stops freezing &skipping.

DVR 120 Disc/Screen freezes half way through

CD does not run
Clean lens and adjust the disk level
Not spinning disc
If it spins with a little help from yourself replace the spindle motor with improved motor, part number: RXQ0749A
This fault would only occur on c.d play back. The sound would gradually start to distort, until all that could be heard was complete distortion. This fault was intermittent and would occur whenever it felt like
Believe it or not,this fault was cured by replacing the optical unit
