JVC XV-THA5R multi-region DVD player - fault recognising a disc in and playing

JVC XV-THA5R multi-region DVD player. UK model. Made in China. I put a DVD disc in and usually have to turn the player on and off several times before the machine eventually reads the disc and loads the film up. Sometimes I simply have to give up. Once a disc is playing, the chances are that at some point through the film, it will start skipping or jumping to a point where it freezes and can no longer be watched.

Strangely some films, once recognised as a disc in, play perfectly all the way through. These tend to be films recorded onto previously blank purchased dvds.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as it is currently a machine that cost £350 that does not get used anymore in favour of a reliable £35 player.

I too have this same problem on my current DVD player, AND strangely enough I had the same problem on my previous player.
Previous player was made multi region and was a Sony S660 (I think that was the model number).
My current DVD player is a Denon and was £550! It is also made multi region and has the same problems! I don't get it!
