Re: skipping

Have your laser lens cleaned or buy a dvd lens cleaning cd available at radio shack. cost around 15 dollars.

usually when the laser lens builds up dust on or around laser lens players tend to skip.

The DVD skips about half way through a program. The same DVD works fine in our desktop computer. Can this problem be fixed? If so, how?

If it is a dvd copy of something, or was made on a computer...some dvd players have a hard time reading the disc consistently. Try with a normal store bought dvd, and see what happens. Also, the lens could use a cleaning. A good thing to have is a cd/dvd lens cleaner disc. hope this helps

I have several old dvd players. They work but either the movie won't load and it says ''no disc'' or they are so sensitive that it skips throughout the movie. Any suggestions? it's not the actual movie...

Correction, it prob is the actual movie when it says "no disc". DVD sub formats have changed so much from when players first came out to today that it is like the difference between windows 95 and windows 7. A lot of the new movies will not play on the older players because it does not reconize the format. On the ones that it skips on, the player thinks it knows the format but doesnt have the compression right. Old players make good paper weights.

The door to the dvd player is stuck partway open on my zenith vcr / dvd combo player

the gears on the drawer skipped a few teeth. as crazy as this sounds, give it a stern whack back in. if the plastic teeth are flexible enough to skip teeth one way, it'll be flexible enough to skip some the other way.

GoldStar GBV241 Dvd Player/VCR Combo skips and freezes


The most possible thing which cause skipping and stalling display are this:

1) The optical lens of your player might have some dust or any small particles blocking the beam of the lens.

solution: if you have guts , open and clean the optic lens using cottons buds. It would not be advisable to apply any liquid to the buds for it my cause blurry or moisture to the lens.Also use cotton buds which is soft at the end and gently wipe the optic lens in circular motion.

if still the same problem? the 2nd cause would be:

2) this time it would be more technical. Most probably the resistance of your spindle motor already change (this normally happens to every DVD player) the normal resistance of spindle motor is around 200ohms. and if there's a change or drop of resistance this would cause skipping and sometimes cause not able to detect disc or read disc.

note: if you try my 1st suggestion and still the same problem.It is advisable to seek a help from a qualified technician.

If you switched DVDs and you plugged it into an electrical outlet and it is still happening, you should take it in to have someone look at it.

Remove and replace the graphite grease from the laser transport worm gear assembly (use the correct Technics stuff), replace the worm gear drive belt, and ensure that the tension spring on the C-shaped plastic piece that rides the gear is OK
