DVD Freezes Our built in DVD freezes about a half hour into the show just about every time that we use it.   We can get it to go by fast forwarding it a bit, but we are very frustrated  We've tried cleaning our DVD's before putting them in but the problem still occurs.  Any suggestions?

Sharp flat panel hd tv built in dvd player skips freezes, hesitates messing up picture etc

May be a dirty or bad optical pickup in the unit--if not dirty then replace unit with an external player (cheaper) as the unit if sold is only available as a complete unit.

LG DVD player. Playing DVDs (even new out of the box movies) the picture freezes for between 10 sec - 60 secs. DVD has hardly been used since new and I have used a lazer cleaner on the DVD tono effect.

Try to clean the lens of your player and the cd.If they freezes again,Maybe the lens of your DVD player have not good enough its better to replace lens

Dear Sirs, Recently, my Sharp dvd-video combi player has been encountering some problems regarding the playing of dvd's. When I watch a movie, in several occasions the movie will freeze up. And for...

the DVD unit in your sharp is a self contained unit. IT is only repaired by replacing the DVD as a assembly. the cost of replacing may exceed the cost of purchasing a new one.
The most likely cause of your problem is in the brass gear assy that runs the optical pick up in the traverse deck. IT is not an available part.

Lately any DVD I put in my player freezes up about half way through the movie. I don't believe it's the discs. Help!

This is always the Laser assembly. 90% of the time they are are not worth repairing, depending on how much it cost you new. If the unit is under $200.00, it's best to buy a new one.

hi wendy, I have the same model tv and it has been doing exactly the same problem you have ever since buying it (2007 - 08) and every time it does freeze it seems to be on channel 9. The only way i overcome this problem is to turn the tv off at the wall for atleast an hour and turn it back on and it seems to re-set itself or should i say the built in set top box re-sets itself and it works fine for a few months and bang it does it again. Apparently there is a LG software update but only technicians can install this. Anyway thats my story! :)
