My movies flicker during playback

I own a RCA dvd player, model drc282. Its barely a year old and has not been played much at all. Recently all my movies flicker during playback. Home burned and studio releases alike.

Is there anything I can try to resolve this or am I stuck with buying a new player?

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Most of times this issue is due to a bad burned disc, and most of times this is due to using a low quality disc. One of the most annoying “feature” of low quality media is that they become unreadable after a short time (sometimes few weeks are sufficient to convert the disc into a coaster) :frowning:

Try to recover all data with a computer drive and burn again on a better quality disc: this should solve :slight_smile:

If it is happening with commercial releases as well, you might try cleaning the lens of the player.
