The DVD player will stop playing the movie, the screen will freeze, and when looking inside with the case removed, you can see the laser table trying to read the point in the movie, and then the power turns off to it, or something.. because the cd's stops being turned as fast, the light for the laser (red) goes off, and then when it comes back, it slides the laser table back towards the start of the dvd, and then back out to the point where it screwed up, and then it does it again. It will carry on like this for 5-10 minutes and then it will start playing, but further in on the movie. I have also noticed that the gears, are twitching.. on what I think is the stepper motor for the laser table. Any ideas what this could be? The rest of the system works great, just the dvd player is having issues. I have blown out the unit, and tried cleaning the lense, as well as a reset to the unit.. with no luck. Thanks

Sound like the disc is stopping inside the player this can happen when you push the tray into the player instead of using the eject/insert button. This can cause the tray to slip its guide plug on the rack and pinion tray release this will also cause tray blocked unknown disc errors, this will need to re-seated.
It is also caused by excess dust and finger grease inside of the player that can build up over a number of years I suggest that you first unplug and then remove the lid from the device give the plastic internals a clean with rubbing alcohol.
DONT TOUCH the record/play head or power up with the lid off.

My friend suggested I clean the dvd optical reader lens inside the player with a fine brush (like a camera brush with a blower bulb). This seemed to help immensely. I'm not certain if this is just a temporary fix, but it seems to be ok so far.
it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.
What might be happening is a misread of the disk or a buffer error, these happen often, and can be fixed sometimes by cleaning the lens, cleaning and relubricating the guide rails and making sure the rubber bumper gromets are not worn down. Now these are all of the mechanical things you can do. The problem could also be a bad memory sector in the play back buffer, or a store and hold voltage could be off a bit (indication of a bad capacitor).
I hope this helps.
