I have a JVC TH-A35 DVD player and I've never experienced any problems with it since I bought it last summer. Anyhow, I bought the Deluxe Edition of Batman Begins today. I came home and put it in, and during the first few minutes it froze up. So I went back to the store (Best Buy) where I bought it, but they had none left, so I have to wait for their next shipment later this week before an exchange. Anyhow, I decided to try the disc again, and it worked the second time around until the layer change halfway through. It didn't freeze up as bad as the last time, but it did stop a few times for a second or two. When it was freezing, what I noticed was that the horizontal seemed to go a little sketchy and my player made like it was thinking a little harder than usual. I haven't cleaned my machine since I bought it, so perhaps that's an issue. Should I try that first before getting the exchange? Or have others experienced problems with the disc? Thanks in advance.
