Hi, need some advice on fixing my player, after playing dvd's for perfectly for about 20-30 mins, it begins to skip/pixelates and finally freezes, locking shut the drawer and rendering controls useless, however after switching off for 10 or so mins, it will work perfectly again before playing up all over again as above.
Has it finally died or am I missing a trick to a simple fix?
Please help as kids are now driving me mad!

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).
The weak lens is also what's making it skip/freeze.
a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does
the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you
would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.
By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.
Thanks for responding to my question. After adding the cost of the 3
items I needed, plus I could not find a remote for the DVD player, I will
come out close to Walmart's price for a new one. So that's how i solved my fix-it problem. It was nice to know of your web site, I'll pass the infro
to my friends. thanks again, Bracie Galloway
you have a defective dvd player. if it is only 3 months old take it back in exchange or repair under warranty. it all depends whom you purchased the item from. you could try running a cleaning disk, but chances are the players needs to be repaired, or replaced. Don't be surprised, i've bougth several in the last couple of years, two i had to take back the same day and exchange them. All of these electronics are made so cheap, it takes two or three units to get one good one. Try to stay away from RCA, Panasonic, and LiteOn.
