Hi, I have the DV-626D DVD player which is nearly four years old. I've never had a problem with it until now. I first noticed the problem when playing a CD. The music skipped, just for a second (or less) and then played on. I tried a DVD and it's doing the same thing, although with the picture I can see that the picture doesn't falter, only the soundtrack. The picture continues to play without skipping, but the sound skips. It's as though I was pressing the mute button on and off quickly just once on my amp. If I scan backwards where the skip just happened, it doesn't skip again in that place. It seems to do it intermittently. I have no control over it. Any ideas? Thanks! Giles.
