Maybe the lens just needs cleaning: Radio Shack has a laser lens cleaner for DVD?s (Item# 42-227 $14). It is an ?Audio CD?, so read the instructions carefully and have your speakers / headphones on to listen to what is on the audio CD. It is a CD with a single row of tiny brushes. No chemicals involved. Get it... it may fix the issue.

My toshiba cinema series DVD player freezes and skips...even on new dvds


May be either a dirty or bad Optical pickup in the unit---if not dirty usually better to replace the entire unit. Buy a new player.

Freezes during playback


Hi. What I am trying to establish from my last question is whether the laser has become heat sensitive or whether there is a bit of dust buildup on the spindle table that might be causing the disc to have excessive wobble.
If the disc has excessive wobble, then the machine will have trouble tracking the outer tracks and will constantly skip as you have described after say 30 to 45 minutes.
If the laser has become heat sensitive then the same problem could potentially occur - The only difference being that if you were to restart the movie at that point, then the skipping would continue even at the beginning of the movie.
The first problem (wobble) is easy to fix - Clean the spindle table, the second problem may render the unit uneconomical to repair.

When i put my dvd in it will play for a few min than it will freeze


I'd almost bet it's time for a new dvd player! often a worn laser unit will freeze first on dvds that are burnt then will skip and freeze on scratched originals then (just like mine) will fail on the goos ones. Time for a new one unless you are will to pay more to get the laser unit replaced!
Happy hunting! :)

DVD player skips and freezes


you have a defective dvd player. if it is only 3 months old take it back in exchange or repair under warranty. it all depends whom you purchased the item from. you could try running a cleaning disk, but chances are the players needs to be repaired, or replaced. Don't be surprised, i've bougth several in the last couple of years, two i had to take back the same day and exchange them. All of these electronics are made so cheap, it takes two or three units to get one good one. Try to stay away from RCA, Panasonic, and LiteOn.

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... :)

Movie freezes, skips.


Does sound like the laser. Realitically, not worth repairing. I'd say you'd be worth connecting a cheap DVD player to the system - then the Sony can carry on providing the surround sound audio and the new DVD player can provide the video. Then, if the cheap DVD player is still going, it can move to a bedroom TV if and when you replace the surround system....

Otherwise, I would imaging the speaker set (and even the non-working DVD player) on its own might fetch a reasonable price on an auction site - anyone who has a stolen DVD unit will probably be desparate for the speakers as Sony don't sell them separately!
