HI!
Right! Ask yourself this question: does it stick at the same point on every disc you play? If you answer YES then it's highly likely that something is preventing the laser from travelling to the outer edges of the disc (plays from inside outwards). If you are handy with a screwdriver take the cover off the player (power off).
When you have done this switch the unit on (DO NOT LOOK INTO LASER DIRECTLY) then put a disc into the machine and let it play.
When it reaches the sticking point try to observe why it is doing it and there a few reasons for this. By the way, when observing a disc playing in a DVD or CD player be at least 3 feet from it, looking at it from the side NOT ABOVE!
1) The lubricant on the chrome rail where the laser unit slides may have become sticky. If this is the case, use some very light oil by applying it with a cotton bud on the rail gently and carefully. Put oil onto the bud first and get rid of excess.
2) The ribbon cable that is connected to the laser block MAY be rising upward as the laser goes outward (I have had that once or twice). If that is the problem you'll have to reposition the cable by taking it out of the laser block and reshape it slightly (there is a plastic clip holding it in place).
3) There may be a fault with the actual mechanism preventing it from travelling - it's possible that something might have broken off or getting jammed in the mech.
ALWAYS REMEMBER!!! Switch OFF the power before you start work on any electrical item. THINK SAFETY!
I hope this has been of help and I will cross my fingers for you! The best of British luck!

Is it all DVDs? try buffing the disk, check other DVDs and see if it persists. If so you may have a bad laser.

I lost my DVD remote so I am using the pronto 3000 universal. When I play a DVD I can't select scenes or skip because it only lets me fast forward or rewind. Can't watch some DVDs because you have to


this is the issue with non original remotes, if they program they will always be missing key or needed features---search for the original remote if you want all the features.

Skipping ahead when viewing recorded programs


It sounds liek your remote control button is sticking inside a bit.
To test it, have it playing, and hide the remote under a cushion so it can't possibly send a signal to the main unit.
Sometimes the rubber buttons need cleaning underneath, even though they don't appear to be stuck down at all.
Its also possible that the remote is actually just going faulty emitting fake signals. I have a HiFi that turns on and starts the radio all on its own (spooky!!!). I found its the remote occasionally sends a radio-on signal about once a week to the HiFi :)
I just hide the remote now unless i'm using the thing.

I was given a set of DVDs. Most of them play for a while and then stop then screen goes black and returns to PLAY. I fast forward to past the stopped area and it plays again for a while then stops again...


there is a compatibility problem here, there are small difference's that cause this problem it is due to the way the information is encoded on the disk, the there are some players like PHILLIPS that will play anything, others like COBY are very finicky, my best suggestion is buy or borrow another player.

My remote control cannot work on rewind, fast forward or comerical skip. The DVD screen display SET 1.


Hello, I had the same problem and after spending a few hours reading and trying things, I found a solution. Its very simple. Power on your unit (manually) and then on your remote control push and hold at the same time"enter" and the number "1" while pointing directly to your unit and this should solve the problem. Good luck.
