Hi,

This is a common problem with these players. As DVD is in perfect condition, clean and not scratched- confirms the problem with player.

If this frequent start and stop occurs with all other DVD's, more often there could be few causes :-

1. Lens is worn out and needs replacement. Of course, you could open and clean the lens manually with a cotton.

2. This could be a mechanical failure that causes frequent shut off. ( Note - This is a possibility ONLY if the DVD only stops. If it restarts itself, more often it is lens failure ).

3. It could be a circuitry problem. ( Firmware - i doubt as i have hardly seen on these models ).

Overall, not worth repair as the repair would cause more than the investment in new. If under warranty, get it replaced. If out of warranty, try to clean the lens and see, if that helps.

I have seen a strange case - Few months ago, i was in a same situation. The player was new and hardly used. We checked every component and does not found anything wrong. We kept the player off for few minutes ( 30 minutes ) and then ON it.Perfect, it worked. This is due to the microprocessor which was reset by disconnecting the power supply.

If the problem is with this DVD, it could be a format problem. In this case, either use another brand or a different format.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

If the DVD player is playing the DVD without a fault prior to the fault and then all of a sudden the set fails, then I wish to advice that you open the set when the faults occurs .
Now keep the lid aside and check in the main board if any of the IC's are heating up. Now use a good soldering iron and do a fine job of soldering all the suspected dry solderings found on this board. please take care not to bridge any circuits but use a good iron. Now if the fault stays get hold of a freeze it spray that can be used to cool the iC section .Do this and see if the fault changes, If so the IC / board is defective.
Find the availability , the cost and then decide on the job.If in warranty claim for a replacement.
However if the picture is irregular on all DVD's then the fault in the optical head is also a possibility.
Hope my advice helps.

I would say your player is proably getting a lil old and maybe damaging the cd itself as most due overtime even the most pristine kept cd will catch scratches from being put into the player I would suggest taking a can of compressed air to your player to ensure the lense is clean

All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.

DVD freezes when playing on a Sony SLV D300P DVD/VCR


That particular unit is very sensitive to scratched or dirty disks. Remove the disk and make sure there are no finger prints, peanut butter & jelly, or popcorn butter stains on the back side. If there is, gently wash the disk under warm water with a DROP of mild dish detergent, being careful not to scratch the surface. Rinse the disk well and dry with a soft, lint free cloth (like an old cotton t-shirt) again being careful to avoid scratching the disk. Replace the disk and play.

If the disk is scratched, there is little hope of fixing the scratch so the unit can read it.....

Problem with the lens


I think we have a design problem here; possibly the unit uses a single-beam laser. Here are the symptoms I have found from my V6800.
When I inserted a DVD that had some minor imperfections, I found that the DVD would hang, usually at the same spot. After cleaning the DVD, there was a noticeable improvement, but it still would start to hang at about 38 to 44 minutes.
Although I have not corrected the problem, I did get enough information to pin the blame on the V6800, and not the DVD with the minor imperfections. Here is how I came up with my conclusion:
I took the "defective" DVD to my PC, and made a copy of it.
The copy played perfectly on the V6800.
The "defective" DVD played perfectly on my PC.
CONCLUSION: If you have a DVD in perfect condition, the V6800 will play it without any problem.
I don't like the DVD medium because of the scratch problem. Fortunately the write-once Flash Memory cards will take the place of the DVD in the near future. Watch SanDisk!

Dvd video player


Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.

DVDs & CDs will not play


If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
