    It sounds like your laser is starting to go bad. This is a pretty common issue for the PS3 as I'm finding out.

It sounds like your laser is going bad. This is a common issue for the PS3. The tell-tale sign is it starts reading less and less and having more errors.

Samsung bd-c6900 xaa dvd player freezes on 3d prometheus movie in same spot at scene 20


Report the error to Samsung support. There is an ongoing problem with the firmware. Make sure you have updated to the most recent firmware version 1025.0 that was released this month. There are still unresolved problems with the new firmware release though. Many movies will fail to load and other will load and play but will skip/freeze during playback. This is related to the anti-piracy features on the Blu-Ray that the player can not properly handle.

My Blu ray player randomly stops playing movies but all other setting work


Have you made sure the disks are clean and have no marring on them? Blue Ray players are very sensitive to any disk issues. Also have you checked to see if any updated Firmware (the software the system uses to read the movies) has been released for the player? They constantly update the operating software of players and the way the disks are recorded, so regular updating is essential to prevent this type of problem in playback, freeze up is the most common complaint.

My ps3 keeps freezing during games


Problem: Your Playstation 3 console is freezing during gameplay. There are usually two problems that would cause your Playstation 3 to freeze during

gameplay. I will start with the most common problem:

1. The Blu Ray Laser is wearing out. This is a common issue among the newer video game consoles. The laser is constantly lighting up to read the discs while you are playing your Playstation 3 whether you are playing games, Blu Ray movies, or DVD movies. Eventually the laser will burn out. As it starts to wear out, first the games or movies will freeze. After a while, it will not read Blu Ray at all. Finally it will quit reading anything. You can find lasers at the following website starting at $49.95. The same website also performs repairs of the Playstation 3 console:

2. Overheating. This is less common. If your PS3 freezes and you shut it off and back on and it comes on ok, it's probably not overheating. If heat is the problem, it will freeze right away if you turn it back on right away without giving it time to cool off. If it turns on OK with no problem and doesn't immediately freeze up, the laser is your issue. If you turn it back on and it freezes right away, your PS3 may be overheating.

If your PS3 is overheating, the best thing to do is to make sure you do not keep it in an enclosed area. Playstation 3 systems and XBox 360 systems run very hot. You must keep it in the open so it gets as much cool air as possible! You can also upgrade the fan inside of your Playstation 3 with the Whisper Fan which increases cooling. You can also find it at the following website:

It freezes when playing a blueray movie. it seems


The most likely cause of your frustration with the BDP-S350 is that your player's firmware is not the most current. Most often, the firmware problem is JAVA related and will not let the menus load at all, but freezing during playback has also been reportedly fixed with the firmware upgrade.

The solution is to go to sony's website, download the firmware upgrade, burn it to a disc and then load the disc into the player to fix it.

I hope that helps.

Ps3 will read normal cd/dvds but freezes on blu-rays after a few moments. I can play any ps3 game from my hdd without issues, so I think it's a blu-ray issue. I can play ps3 blu-ray games for an hour or...


The 405 nm 10 mw blue violet laser gets whats called thermal kinks in the
optical medium .There hard to weed out in batches of KGD (Knowen Good Dies) . the
problem will arise as the laser diode cycles 400-600 times which puts it right in your-living room
when it starts failing. sound like the Laser.

DVD Freezes during playback


it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
