Question about Toshiba SD-V392 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Movie Freezing My Toshiba DVD player is about 2 year old. Now it has started doing something that it never did before. Every movie I play start freezing when its half way through. If I reboot it, it freezes randomly at different points. Even new DVDs with least scratches. My PC plays those same DVDs fine.

Sounds like youe unit is getting tired my freind. they dont make em like they used to. The unit most likly needs a tracking or focus servo alighnment, but to put it on a bench, and have a tech adjust the alighnments, will most likly exceed the cost of a new unit. The laser could also be getting weak, and the replacement optical assemblies for this unit alone cost about 60 bucks. Then you have labor and alighnment cost, as you don't just throw in an optical pickup assembly and it works. Good Luck Please, do not forget to rate this thread.

What are the compatible types of DVD's that the Daewoo DVD5800 player is supposed to play? Is DVD-R among the compatible types? Try playing the new recordings on a computer that has a DVD drive, or a friend's computer.

Denon dvd player freezes in the same place on certain dvd's also sometimes willnot start to play disc unless re-inserted several times. Model D-M51DVS


sounds like its stoping during layer switch, if the player is old its needs to be cleaned. its best to clean it once every 20hrs or so. if you do not have a disk cleaner you should go buy one first. if the player is new return it and get the best dvd player you can buy for any amount the toshiba xde. this player is phenomenal, the best you will be amazed. no i dont work for toshiba but ever since they started making hd dvd players(i know they stopped)there players have become the best. trust me if you dont think so just return it. no harm done. if you want a blu-ray get ps3 I dont like them either but i have to admit after buying (for movies only)my third blu-ray player it is by far the best one. almost as good as the toshiba on standard dvd playback but not quite. good luck.

You could try clening the laser lens with a damp Q-Tip, also gently turn the spin motor spindle by hand... it should be free. If it's binding or tight then it's bad.

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

Hi RC hobby,

Sounds like you have a faulty power supply or logic board. The later is most likely. Once the unit get warmed up the component tolerance become critical to it's performance. If an ageing component is starting to fail then then normally happens once it fairly warm. The reverse can be true, it just depends on what type of part is failing.

I'd check the it's internal power supply for signs of faulty capacitors. However, you do so at your own risk. See this website for details on identifying bad capacitors. Please read the safety warning on the back of the unit before opening. Ensure the unit is unplugged from your mains supply.

Please don't forget to to leave feedback.

Hope this helps,

Movie skips and freezes during play


CD and dvd disc cleaners will not solve the problem, a deeper and delicate cleaning procedure by cleaning the lens manually with an cotton swab is needed...
Although the quality of newer discs is to be discussed.
