Hi. I have a Sony DVD Player and a Samsung DVD player.
I was watching some DVD movies - some rented from the library and some rented from Blockbuster.
Our electricity went out (NOT due to lightning) - and ever since the Sony will not even read a DVD and the Samsung has difficulty with audio.
I went to BestBuy and purchased a DVD cleaner (the kind with the tiny little brush) and used it on both DVDs. Did not solve the problems.
The Sony just grinds away and eventually says “error”. The Samsung - the sounds just cuts out for 10 or 15 seconds.
Would you guess that when the electricty went out the damage was cause or would you guess that a “bad” dvd caused the damage?
If you suspect a bad DVD - I’ll be sure to return the suspected DVDs immediately.
Thanks so much. Great forum. April
