Question about Sony DVP-FX810 Portable DVD Player
I see 3 post about the same problem but no solution...is there one?
After going through 2 of this model (the first one didn't do it for almost a year, so we figured that the kids had broken it), I suspect that it's a problem with the tracking mechanism. The lens seems to get stuck in one place and a little shaking may help it to overcome the problem. Sometimes manually moving the lens will get it to restart, but it may just get stuck again in the same spot. Basic solution - buy a different brand (I have seen a long history of similar probs w/ Sony portable players). Ugly solution - open it up (I haven't yet), and hope that there are accessible guide rails that you can grease up, and then get the whole thing put back together correctly.

I have this problem, too! I can hear the disc spinning and the screen says LOADING but it simply won't play.
I have found that inserting a laser cleaning disc will temporarily solve the problem. I have also sprayed a can of compressed air into the player and that works, too.
When it freezes mid-movie, I can shake the player and it will sometimes fix this problem.
