My DVD player is an integral part of my old Panasonic TV set. The picture on my viewer '"freezes" at times--sometimes shortly after its start and sometimes well after its start. The stoppages usually last for only an instant after which the picture resumes; however, often a stoppage is followed by complete shutdown of the picture, which doesn't resume until rested for some time and then restarted by the operator. Is there anything I can do to restore the life of the DVD player?

I'm screaming your praises!! WOW! I plugged my TV in and bammo! The picture came on bright and beautiful. What a relief! YOU saved me some money and headache.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
