DVD Player Skipping/Pixelating


Recommended Posts

My DVD player has started to skip alot and pixelate or freeze for a couple of seconds then resume.

What could be wrong with it?

It is a Sony player, don't know the exact model but its about 4 or 5 years old.

Have you tried cleaning the lens?

Yeah the discs are clean, I was watching Back to the Future III today and the disc is virtually brand new out of the box, watched maybe once or twice before. It skipped maybe a few times during the movie but alot when I was watching the extras.

Any specific DVD cleaner I should look for?

Some of the reviews Im reading say the cleaners have alot of compatibility issues.

Definitely get a lens cleaner to see if it helps. As for which particular one, I really don't know.

Yeah try a lens cleaner and also check your scart cables as they do degrade over time and particularly if its the one you got with it the cable will be a cheap crappy one, always worth trying a Monster cable (even the MV1 is a huge step up) and even if it doesnt work you'll have a great cable for your replacement dvd player :)
