I have been noticing freezes lately when I am playing a DVD. When this happens, the DVD freezes and all functions on the remote as well as the player are lost. I would turn off the power manually and wait for some time to pass. Most of the time, this fixes the problem. Sometimes, when I turn back on the player I would see some gibberish (like a half lit display showing some ?matrix? style letters) on the display and the player does not start up properly. When this happens, I would allow for more time for the player to be turned off and it does the trick until now.
The last time the player froze, it was about 3 days ago. And every time I have tried to turn it back on, I would get the same gibberish on the display and the player is non-responsive to any command. It has never taken this long before for the player to return to normal. Do you think this is an overheating issue? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
I had the same issue... SOLVED
If you switch on the system touch the low-frequency caps (3200 uF (25V)) you will notice the caps are hot. This is caused by the age of the system because the cap's electrolyte is aged and caps loose insulating and start being utilizator. In this case all the egress 6V stadium is overloaded and the IC (7806) overheat.
In my case one of the caps was unsoldered... (extracurrent/heat???) so I have replaced the caps and mounted a little fan (12V - 6cm x 0.8 cm) in the case just near 7806 heatsink, this fan pull the hot air from the chassis ant put it out.
Now the system seems running well.

if there's no flashing red light on lens?.. the ribbon connector of lens is not properly connect, or change it if you notice that it has lines cracked. the bad performance of the disk spinning motor is also causing why was your unit displaying "no disc" error.
does this happen only when you play dvd? bluescree usually pertians to Operating system issue, so i suggest you back up your files as early as now, and try reinstalling your OS. If it still wont work, you may need to replace your hard drive.
The best thing to do wuld be to first, back up all of the stuff on your ipod, and the restore it back to factory setting through itunes. After that, you can put all of your files back on the ipod and it should function normally.
Heat needs to be removed from your xbox for it to function
properly. If you are starting to see random lockups and odd artifacts in
graphics it may be time to clean out your console. Keep in mind that in
game lockups can also be caused by DVD issues but if can stick your xbox in a
cold place and notice that this gives you stable play time then clean it of all dust. I am talking about taking it apart and giving it a good cleaning. If this does not help try a aftermarket fan.
DVD Drive failure most common problem, this ranges from dirty disk error (DDE) message to inoperable drive door, skipping in movies, slow load time or no load or the call customer service errors 10, 11, and 12. To replace the drive it will have to be reflashed.
You tried cleaning the lens right? That's the first thing I would do. You may have to actually open up the unit and use some windex on a cotton swap to clean the lens. Be very careful not to overwet the cotton swab. Use the other end of the swab to dry the lens.
The red wavelength of light from the laser might not be getting through the lens properly, which is used for the Audio CDs, where the higher frequency laser is used for the DVD material.
