I've got a Pioneer DVL-919 LD/DVD combo. It has for more than five years performed very well most of the time. Lately I've had one small problem, though. I’m having troubles playing some rather minor extra features on two Warner DVDs. On “Little Caesar” (67215) a piece of text called “Re-release forward” won’t play properly and there seems to be the same problem with “Buy savings bonds – a patriotic drama” on “To Be Or Not To Be” (31976). This happens during (attempted) playback: At one point the picture starts “pixelating” and it won’t play any further. The laser unit (the “thing” that moves across the disc while reading it) seems to get “lost” and unable to figure out what to do/where to go. I can’t get back to the menu – I must press the stop button. The DVDs in question don’t seem to have scratches and I’m not able to skip past the point where the problem occurs by selecting a later time on the remote. When I first experienced this problem with “Little Caesar” I opened up and looked inside the player and selected the problem piece on the menu to see if I could figure anything out. Based on what I saw I suspect that the “Re-release forward” piece has been recorded on the edge of the disc and that my player has a problem reaching that far out on the edge. Does this sound likely? Does it make sense? I’ve tried another copy of “Little Caesar” and the same thing happened. I didn’t look inside the player when playing “To Be Or Not To Be”, but the problem seemed to be similar, as far as I can tell. Has anyone experienced these problems with these titles? I suspect that there is a mechanical problem - can something be done? I posted this problem in the software section a few days ago. There was no reply.
