    Although I am generally very happy with my Pioneer DV350, I have on several occasion got a sort of pixel break up/digital blockiness appearing over a frame or two. Normally if I rewind the disc and play it again it won't happen.

    What is this likely to be down to, perhaps a dodgy laser or something - is it worth talking to Pioneer to try and get it repaired/replaced?

    i have a 444 pioneer player and have never seen pixelation or break up. Try a few disks if one does this consistently it might the disk, Dirt grease ie finger prints can cause this. If it really bugs you try an d return it for a new one.

    Haven't had it happen in a while now, and I've been watching a fair amount of DVD recently, I think I'll put it down to dust or a stray fingerprint as you suggest.

    I had a 350 and it did exactly the same thing as yours.

    Blocking, like when digital tv loses the signal.

    Only a frame or two. Not on every disc or even the same disc when played again and never in the same place, but regular enough for me to notice.

    I blamed it on the multiregion conversion but it might be a glitch in the machine.

    Anyone else?
