DVD Player Freeze Up

Discussion in 'DVD Video' started by Richard Alger, Feb 12, 2007.

  1. I've had a Panasonic VCR / DVD combo player / home theater system for
    about 3 years now. In the last month or so, I've noticed it freezes up
    when playing DVDs. I think it's when the player changes to the second
    layer on the DVD. Might it just be a dirty lens? Would a cleaning kit
    help? Any advice will be appreciated.

    Have you checked the Panasonic website for firmware upgrades for that unit?

    Pretty common problem with combo units becuase they are made much more
    cheaply than standalone units. You'll pretty much have to get a new DVD
    player....don't get a combo player this time.
