I received my first batch of LDs the other day, and with great excitement I tossed in Tommy Boy. It played great at first, but upon reaching the latter part of the first side it started exhibiting problems. All across the screen, there are these wavy lines that look like some type of random interference, but they're very well defined if I pause the movie, and they look exactly the same when I play through a scene repeatedly. The next thing I saw were some very obvious horizontal white lines, almost like static, flickering on and off. I then noticed that the player was making some very odd noises which freaked me out. I skipped over the rest of the first side and jumped to the second side. Nowhere on the second side of the disc do I see any of these problems; everything is clear and sharp from beginning to end. This is the first disc that has given me these problems. I checked the surface, and it appears clean. I don't see any obvious indicators of laser rot, but it's not always visible right? I'm most worried though because the player itself was making such odd noises while trying to track the disc. It has never done it before though, and only does it toward the end of the first side of Tommy Boy. Anyone know what the problem is? I'm dying to see the "fat guy in a little coat" sequence, but can't get to it because it sounds like my player is dying when I get to that point in the movie. I'm afraid I'll kill it.
