Freezes while playing

I insert a dvd and it starts playing. Then about 15 minutes into the movie, the system completely freezes and I have to turn it off. What is causing this problem and how do I fix it?

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,

Appears to turn it's self off,or freeze and go dark.


Go to http://www.samsung.com/us/support/download/supportDown.do?group=&type=&subtype=&model_nm=BD-P1400&language=&cate_type=all&dType=D&mType=FM&vType=&prd_ia_cd=03020100&disp_nm=BD-P1400&model_cd=&menu=download
you have to burn it to a CDROM as an image file, if you just drop it on a CDROM as is, it won't work. Insert it in the player and follow the menu to update the firmware. Takes 30 minutes in 2 steps of 15 minutes each.
I have to say though, after spending a year trying to get a 1400 to work, and multiple firmware upgrades on same, I gave up and bought a Panasonic BD35 which has been flawless on every movie.

DVDR05


I have the same problem with rentals. Even discs barely scratched or with fingerprints. The ilo recorder is great for recording but not really a good player. Try watching a disc you recently recorded. If it still messes up maybe it needs cleaning? May be getting too hot too, check your clearance around your unit.

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.

ILO DVDR05 recorded DVD's freeze


Burn your DVDs at tow positions slower than what the system and discs say. It sounds as if there is a huge amount of error being introduced during the write process. Unfortunately, the old discs can only be recovered with an external program like Zero Assumption Recovery or the like....accordianman

Playing recordable dvd


My Emerson won't play anything except DVD Movies, never has, wasn't suppose too. Make your movies in DVD Video format and it will read them fine (unless it's broke). I make movies all the time and play them back in mine. It reads DVD-R, DVD+R, and in duel layered. It will not read RW disks!

Man I've every problem you can imagine with DVD Players. I've found when the disk gets stuck, as long as it's not jammed. You can turn the unit off or unplug it. Plug it back in but DON'T TURN IT ON! Instead hit the eject button and the drive should open the drive without trying to read the disk.

DVD Freezes during playback


it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.

Is this problem happening when playing back from DVD, VCR or internal disk?

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.

Player freezes at same time on almost every disk, and recorder programs won't play on anything else.


The last problem is probably because you have not ?finalized? the DVD yet. Basically what that does is modify how the data is stored on the DVD so that a normal DVD player can read it. It also prevents you from modifying or recording to the disk any more so make sure you?re done before performing this. The part about the freezing is more complex, are these commercially recorded DVDs or something someone else recorded?
