Question about Zenith DVD5201 Multi-disc DVD Player

1 Answer

Dvd stops after about 10 minutes

Just about everytime I play a dvd it will freeze after about 10 minutes. Sometimes after a couple of minutes it will come back, but usually stays frozen until I open the disc door. Any ideas would help. I really don't want to have to replace it if I don't have to.

    My Zenith plays store bought movies fine, but the ones I record on any DVD RW tend to skip something awful. The discs will play fine on all my other players, just not my Zenith. And it seems that certain trays are worse than others. Like #5 has lately not wanted to play even store bought movies.

It is possible the laser inside is dirt and needs cleaning....but I assume you have done that?

I have a Panasonic DMR-EZ48V and have had many problems with it from day one. It sometimes records a tv program sometimes not. Sometimes plays dvd movies sometimes not. It often freezes up and has to be...

Not having Cable TV would not stop it playing back a DVD. A good TV aerial, with new cable will cure any bad TV signals, but the fact that it is not playing back a DVD everytime tells me that there is something wrong with the unit's mechanism.
The Panasonic engineer in this case doesn't know what he is talking about.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...

Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.

Movies on my recorded discs freeze after a few minutes of play

Sometimes this unit gets "confused" - not sure why -- but try first using a CD cleaning disk and let it start and stop a couple times (sometimes lens gets dirty and does this) - if that doesn't help then try unplugging unit and leave unplugged (from wall socket) for about 30min then plug in, set local time and then see if the disks play okay - sometimes this "resets system"
