    Hi All,

    My DV88 plus is extremely sensitive to fingerprints and other muck on the DVDs and will quite often freeze or stutter at the layer change if the disc isn't spotless. (I've noticed it locking up and rebooting a couple of times once it freezes as well)

    Is this normal for these players? If not has anyone else come across it and cured it by something like a lens clean or laser unit re-alignment?

    I'm thinking of taking it into my local dealers to get it realigned (and the latest firmware put onto the transport and player boards if it isn't the latest).

    It doesn't do it on any particular discs, just ones with slight finger prints on them and/or bits of dust.

    Its a lot more sensitive to this than my old Philips 963SA was, and the Panny upstairs.

    I'll have a look and see what the firmware versions are tomorrow.


    TIA,

    Richard

    Why are you on your third one? Can't be for this problem as you said yours don't exhibit this problem?
