It could be a couple things...
#1. Over time, dust and deposits can accumulate on the laser that reads the disc. In many cases, DVD players with this problem can still read CDs. You could try a DVD laser cleaner, which is usually a disc that has a tiny brush glued onto it. Run the cleaning disc 2 or 3 times, and try it again. Try both CDs and DVDs, since CDs are easier to read than a DVD.
2. After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. In many cases, DVD players with this problem will still be able to read a CD. I'd try a cleaning disc first, since the only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.
Let me know what happens after you get the DVD laser cleaner and run it. Hope this helps.

It freezes while playing dvd's about every ten minutes. It does allow you to skip forward and continue playing but makes you skip an entire chapter. What causes it to freeze?


Mt SD-1800 does the same thing, plays for awhile and then gets stuck. I took it apart and cleaned the rails and the optical lens but no help. I noticed that the head did not slide back and forth without cogging. It turns out that the little pinion gear on the motor was cracked. Every revolution it would catch on the tooth by the crack. I doubt that there are replacement parts available.

Can not get dvd player pdv7012 to play


Was this working before?? if yes did you try playing another disc and check if it play? if you cannot play any disc with this player there's a possibility that the lens is dirty or bad, you can try to run a CD cleaner to clean the lens..

Hope that helps.........

Hi,I have an issue with Sony DVD player where in it plays the CD/DVD quite good for a while say may be around 20 mins,then gets struck...doesnot detect the DVD/CD once in a while...could u help me on this


Have you tried using a CD/DVD cleaner disc???? you can pick one up at any drug store, walmart, target, etc. I would first try that. If its the same CD/or DVD, then I would say thats the problem, a scratch on it will and it will stop playing, but you need to clean your players once in a while.....hope this helps you....

I have some movies (format *.avi) that I cannot see (I can hear the sound, though) when I attempt to play once burned as data on a DVD. The message says "video codec not available". I made those movies...


Hello Aristica,
There is No software download for the DVD plaer itself. Where you are going wrong is the Format ie avi that DVD player does not support it. You can Google free software to download which will allow you to convert you AVI file to something that the Dvd player will play:

DVD Video • VCD • SVCD • DVD-R • DVD-RW • DVD+R • DVD+RW • CD (Audio) • CD-R • CD-RW • Picture CD • Divx

so If you type in Google free Avi converter Then this will list several. You really want one that will convert to DIVX or VOB those will definately play on your DVD player.

I hope this has help you out. I tryed not to go into too much detail.

Cheers

Lg 766 wont play a pre recorded dvd every thing else is fine


Not all DVD players will play a pre-recorded DVD that was made on a computer. These types are designed to play only what is called pressed DVD's.

When a CD or a DVD is recorded on a computer it is not really the same as when the media has been press recorded.

Most all of the new model DVD and CD players will play computer recorded media. When buying a player, it is important to make sure that the specs are what you need.

Dvd


it all depends on wot u used to burn it, and wot type of dvd player u have, there r diff ways to get it to play, on a normal dvd player u will either need to encode the movie file into a vcd and put it on a cd or encode to dvd format and burn it onto a dvd using programs like nero or roxio
