DVD will load and play, however, during the play the screen begins to freeze and motion is very slow (this could happen at any time). Small square blocks appear on the screen and there may be slight movement on the screen showing two different scenes (distorted) at the same time. Finally the screen will completely freeze up and nothing will get it to move.
I cleaned the discs with approved solution and cleaned the DVD player with compressed air.
The DVD player is relatively new.

Re: Freeze up on DVD
If you are a tech check the voltage regulator the problem is intermittent ytou shold be getting about between 5to 12 volts dc from the output of your regulator.if you are not getting that then rplace the voltage and the associated components if you are not a tech take it to one and have it repaired.good luck.
I read your symptom this morning and it sounds like you might have a tracking problem. In order to confirm this problem remove the top cover. I would start by measuring the power supply voltages. Load a disc in the player and press play. See if there is any change in the voltage levels durring the time that the player starts acting up. Sometimes a faulty voltage regulator will cause this problem.
I hope this helps you.

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.
In XP go to device manager and expand list of IDE ATA ATAPI controllers. Right click on primary IDE controller and select properties. In advanced screen check primary IDE mode - that should be DMA.
IF that is in PIO mode - that is your problem.
Just click on driver tab in the same window and click uninstall.
REstart computer twice and problem should be solved.
Please leave your feedback if issue is solved
Well if these spot are consistent on certain disks time after time it is most likely a scratch, smudge or defect on the disk. check them all for scratches and if they are dirty try to clean them very gently with a soft cloth. This would only really concern your actual console if it occurs during heavy game loading or at the same spot during a load. Try cleaning all your disks and get back to me. GL
try using a q-tip with rubbing alcohol to clean the lens of the laser.the lens is exposed on the slim versions.just dip the q-tip in the alcohol and rub the lens firmly in a circular motion.use the dry side of the q-tip to dry the lens
During MY long, intensive, painful research concerning the EXACT same problems, I've discovered that in ONE circumstance, these problems are caused whenever the recorder has INPUT (COAX, AV, etc), from a CABLE box!!!!
Assuming the controls haven't already frozen, I disconnected the CABLE box from the recorder, and the recorder "came back to life!!!"
And this, after bring my recorder in for "repair", THREE TIMES!!!
Now, the only thing to resolve is: how to connect the CABLE BOX to the recorder--WITHOUT using any of the recorder's input jacks!!!!
If it's a very cheap unit, it's possibly because the machine can't process the information quickly or efficiently enough, thusly causing the picture to freeze up while the processing catches up with it. Friend has a $30 unit, which happens to constantly.
