DVD Freezes during playback

One of my dvd players stops during a movie. Picture freezes and I have to restart the DVD. Doesn't happen all the time maybe once out of 6 movies. The DVDs are not scratched. It even happens to new ones.

    all dvd freeze,and stop or revert back to live tv half way through. The player is less than 1 year old. It happens now with all dvds so a film can never be watched all the way through. Have tried resetting

    I have the same problem with mine. It does not do it all of the time but when it does, the screen goes black and the only way to get it to do anything is to turn it off and turn it back on. Frustrating!

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.

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.

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.

Player freezes during movie

i have the same problem, i put any dvd and it freezews during the play. there is nothing to do, must restart and sometime have to wait one day before i can restart. i have tried at leat 12 different dvd and it freezes everytime on every single one of them. I have tried clening... no success. Now Sony replacement plan cost 150.00!!!! I have paid 200.00 for the player. At this point i hsould buy a new one or get a replacement? Probably replacement but at that price I feel i am buying a new one.... I am disapointed with Sony. Don't buy DVP-FX810 seems i am not the only one with the problem.

Camcorder "Freezes Up" during playback and/or during creation of thumbnails

I had the same problem - you are (as I was) turning off the camera too soon after you hit the stop button after recording a scene. Wait until the word "disc access" appears (about 5 seconds after you hit the stop button. This "marks" the end of the scene. I just don't know how to edit that scene out or if it will delete it out. I know after finalizing the disc that scene will pause for a while (10 to 20 seconds even) when you watch it through the DVD player to the TV.

Picture freezes in the middle of playback

When a dvd or cd player freezes while playing , it could be a few differant things . First thing I would check is to make sure the disc and the lens has no dirt and dust on them, Next I would check the slider assy rail for dirt ,dust or hardened grease. Next I would check the tracking gain and tracking offsets. Without training, about the best you can do is the first or maybe the second BUT the alighnments should be left to a pro as you need alighnment disc and equipment to do this alighnment. Good Luck
