If you see this problem all original (not home created) DVDs and CDs try the steps below. If this problem is only being caused by a few disc, the problem is usually with the disc itself.
Try all things you can do yourself to repair the unit. If none of them are successful, you will need to have the unit repaired, or purchase a new DVD player. I can not give you an accurate estimate of the cost as repair stores have different cost and the problem could be caused by multiple things. I would suggest if the unit repair cost exceeds 2/3 the cost of a new unit, then don't bother fixing it. You'd be better off with a new player.
