Recently my DVD player (a Pioneer 525 I think) started to pixellate the picture and then stopped completely whilst playing the widescreen version of Jeepers Creepers that I had rented. I played the other fullscreen side no problem. Cleaning the disk did not help. This also happens now on a number of my DVD collection disks. Notably, Phantom Menace will always stop shortly into the movie. The disk is spotted and I cannot wash the spots off with warm soapy water. I've tried a couple of others and they failed too. What is up ? I thought I may have a screwed DVS player because I had pressed stop whilst watching a movie a couple of weeks ago and left it at the 'resume' prompt for a week or more. Would this screw my player up ? Are my disks wrecked?
