Hello opie440,

The optics might be dirty or the pickup assembly might need alignment. In the former case you can get an optics cleaning kit and try to clean the laser LED and pickup assembly. For the latter cause you will need to have thre unit aligned at a TV repair shop.

My VHS-to-DVD Burned Disc used to work and now it doesn't


Richard,

It could be your disc is scratched or DVD+R can't be read in the DVD player. Check for any scratches. Then pop in the disc in to your PC DVD, to see if it's readable.

did you mean your DVD disc can not play in some dvd players,if so then my answer to your querry would be that some dvd players have more powerful lens to read bulky data in a disc that some machines can not read. also note that some machines are very sensitive such that they do not play discs with viruses,with scratches or any other defects. this is to safeguard the lens from being damaged due to the same though some machines will play barely all discs no matter the scratches.

Hi, You can try testing the discs on a different player. The problem may be with a scratched disc or damaged disc. The player seems to be fine if it works with other discs. In any case, I have provided a link to the player's manual: http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/jvc/jvc_xv_n320b_xvn320b.html

Disc error shows when playing dvd


You may need to get the discs repaired or it may be your laser in the player need cleaning. Easiest soloution is to basically clean your disc(playside). Check for scratches on both sides of your disc. If the label side is scratched in any way, it might be unrepairable as this is where the data is stored, if the playside is scratched they are repairable. You can try home remedies if the scratches are very slight, if not professional repair is required. Try other discs in your player, if they are not working either, then it may the players laser is dirty and may need a laser cleaner, fairly cheap in some stores.

If it's the disc thats scratched visit www.discREPAIR.ie for FAQs and futher help or disc repairs.

DVD plays well until it stutters midway thru and


If it only happens with one disc, try using a Disc Doctor/Skip Doctor on it. These instruments will repair scratches and depending on the disc, repair pinholes in the disc. Usually it's just polishing the surface of the disc. Some instruments totally resurface the disc by stripping off a thin layer of the disc to remove scratches and other damage. (Used game/music stores will do this).

DVD Scratches


i think its the player, the distance of the spindle motor spinner is quite near the pick-up assembly that is why slight vibrations affects the unit.

Get some frezzing on some dvd with a few scratches which play on my old player fine


use DVD disc cleaner. This cleaner looks just like a disc with some extra little brushes on its surface. Some DVD cleaner kits even come with supplies to clean and modify scratches on your discs.

if this helps please leave a fixya rating as thats how we get paid

Rented videos are freezing temporarily during playback


If the rented DVD is too scratched it will cause the DVD player to pause while it tries and find the next available playable area on the disc. This may cause the player to skip to another part of the movie. Try wiping the disc with a damp cloth from the centre towards the outer rim and dry the same way. Fingerprints ect. also cause problems. If the scratches are circular the player will have a hard time trying to play the disc. If the scratches are straight and small it shouldn't cause too much problems.
