My older player (a Panasonic DVD-A110) was retired to my bedroom a couple months back because sometimes using forward or backward commands would cause the audio and video to screw up. Well now it seems to have gotten worse. I tried playing the Godfather last week and near the end, the screen got very pixelated and was freezing. Weird... Today, I tried watching Party Monster and about an hour into it, the samething happens. A friend suggest I buy a laser-cleaner and that may help, but to me, that seems like it wouldn't do any good since the movie plays fine for awhile then craps out on me. Does anyone have any clue what the problem could be and if it can be fixed? or is my DVD player on it's deathbed?
