Question about Zenith DVD2381 DVD Player
We cannot watch a DVD without many pauses. It seems to get stuck. This happens on any DVD we play at this point.
It may be a dirty lens, or perhaps the drive is getting stuck.
The first thing to try, if you feel up to it, is to clean the lens. First, you'll need rubbing alcohol (peroxide isn't the same thing) and a Q-tip. Add a tiny amount of alcohol to the Q-tip and gently rub it against the lens of the laser. After a few times around the lens, use the dry end of the Q-tip to pick up any excess alcohol lying around. Put the player back together and try playing a disc.
If it still doesn't fix the issue, then the following steps can be taken.
Have a disc in the drive and while it's off, open it up. Start the drive and see if it's spinning freely. If not, then onto the next part.
Use some WD40 on the shaft of the drive motor that makes the disc spin. Just use a little bit at a time and work it in by manually spinning the spindle (what the disc rests on). Once that's finished, put the disc back in and reassemble the drive, plug it in, turn it on, and see if it spins better.
