Hello bnycenice,

I posted this a while ago, but I think it applies to your problem:

You can try a cleaning disk, however it has been my experience that the cleaning disk will not help, but it is a good place to start from. More then likely it is a problem with the laser pickup photo-transistor, these often malfunction causing this problem. I would suggest if you are going to try to repair this yourself, you will need a multimeter, a laser meter, and a schematic. The first step is to measure the laser energy leaving the laser diode and see if it matches the specifications in the schematic, if it does not, check the bias voltage with the multimeter, this is to determine if the problem is the bias voltage or the diode itself. If the diode is bad replace it. if the diode is good then the pickup becomes suspect. Using the multimeter measure the bias voltage on the photo-transistor with and without the presence of the laser light from the diode. This will tell you if the photo-transistor is good or bad, if the transistor is bad replace it , if it is good check the components that make up the biasing circuitry.

Now This test will produce a test of go or no-go on the laser diode and the photo-transistor. One of these components or their related biasing circuitry is either bad or about to go bad, by testing the voltages and laser light levels you should be able to determine which one or if both have a problem.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Picture freeze,long tme to restart does it again


Unless you have good / fast access to the Internet (or wireless or 4G network), it may take a long time to download a movie to your device. If the speed of download is slower than the speed of the play, the picture freezes ... essentially, it is waiting for the completion of the download for the next few frames (of the movie). That is why the picture freeze .... and it will start again after sufficient data has been download to continue / start playing (the movie) again.

Dvd player just freezes and wont do anything


I suggest the garbage can. I bought my husband the DVDR05 and it has not worked from day one. It will play about 15 minutes and then freeze up. We have read the book to see if it was something we did wrong. We finally shut off the tv and turned the player on before turning the tv on and we got half way through a movie that way. It is very upsetting.

Movie freezes


Grease the slide rails with a little smudge of vaseline - especially if the mechanism is noisy. There is another reason for it that I have not worked out, but on 2 machines the grease did the trick.
