Problem playing dvd

When playing a dvd, it plays fine for a while but after an hour or so, it freezes. We subscribe to Netflix and it has always been a movie from them when this happens. I can take it to my laptop and it plays fine. I have tried cleaning the lens. It almost seems like something overheats. Has anyone had this problem or know what might cause this to happen.

My Blu-Ray player will not play Netflix anymore. Model #BPM33 It's not a Netflix problem. I got a message stating I need more storage space and I don't know how to do that.

Look in setting and look for format they have built in hard drive. Some you have to delete some streamed movies that install automatically.

DVD won't play

Netflix doesn't know what they're talking about. I looked it up - your DVD player doesn't have an autoplay feature. Can you try the DVD on another DVD player. Computers DVD drives generally read them differently - and decode them differently, than a regular DVD player. Also, if your DVD drive is a writable drive, it will have a stronger laser than your DVD player. I think it's likely the disk is damaged, slightly. If you cleaned your DVD's laser, it might be able to read it well enough to play - or it might not. I started having problems like this with a few of my own DVDs before my DVD player's laser went out. Basically it's a combination of laser quality and disc quality. If it remains just this one disk, I'd suggest leaving it alone. But if you start running into this problem on other disks as well, you'll probably want to have the laser replaced in your DVD player.

Why can i not get on netflix I am a member

Sounds like maybe your provider is the cause as some have been known to play havoc with their subscribers as they may be protecting their BIG customers. One cable provider near here has a 700meg per day rule with going over that they throttle your speed. GIVE THEM HELL. You might file a complaint with your States Attorney as well as contacting local news sources and see if anyone else is having the same problem

Xbox 360 Freezing during netflix and dvd playback

If you are using a HDMI connection, often the connection will be lost between your xbox and your tv. In my case I simply change to another channel or the other HDMI channel and then back and the secure HDMI connection will be restored.

After I insert a dvd disc in the dvd drive, it still asks me to isert a disc in the drive. It seems that it is not able to read the disc. We currently subscribe to netflix. Certain dvd"s whhen inserted...

If it is a hardware fault, a fault in your drive, it occurs on every disk
if it is a disk fault it occurs only when faulty disks are used.
Probably Netflix discs are bad, wrong region code, or scratched, or badly copied

DVD video player problem

More than 75% of the time, the erratic behavior of dvd playing is caused by defective dvd disc.
  • You said you rent them from netflix.. so check the condition of the dvd disc surface first. make sure it's not scratched or dirty with finger prints or smuges.
  • always practice to hold dvd discs by the edge and do not touch the data surface(bottom).
The other 25% of time is the dvd player's inability to track the disc properly. Most DVD players on the market today uses 3-beam pickup tracking method. Sometimes the optical eye (tracking device) goes bad and start giving above discribed symtoms. There is a dvd player cleaning disc you can buy on the market (radio shack) too. It has little gentle bristles on the disc to rub off the dust on the surface of the optical eye of the dvd player.
