My DVD Player stalls everytime I try to play a DVD. It also cancels and goes back to start.

Most of the time this is caused by something altering the light at the pickup. Inspect with a lot of light and a magnifying glass, Remove particles that get attracted to that area and block or bend the light.

I am using a DVD player on my PC to view movies under Win XP. Certain discs refuse to open. However they do open on my friend's PC. Also, for all discs that I am able to view, the movie periodically stalls...

I suggest first port of call is a firmware upgrade you need a CD-R to do this and the correct BIN file and flasher from the manufacturers website.

Have a sony 5 dvd changer. not sure of model. disk fell off carosel. cannot get it out. any thoughts?

Unplug unit and take shell cover off. While you have it apart it would be a good idea to clean the laser lens with alcohol and wipe with clean cloth to ensure that your movies play without stalling or skipping.

Sounds like the spindle motor is not running up to par. Possibly the lens needs cleaning as well.
