    Sounds like some problem with the focus of the 2nd laser, probably played to many pirated VCD, did you? ;)

    Try cleaning the lense using a cleaning disc, though in worst case there could be also a fault in the decoding section of the player (unlikely, but who knows ...).

    Since the unit is only 4 month old why not make a warranty case out of it and let the dealer sort it out for you?

    Hi,

    Have the discs played back normally before?

    I've had a Pioneer DV717 for 2 years that was pretty much fine for any discs but if the discs were dodgy copies (i.e. poor burns or heavily scratched) it would occasionally freeze and the sound would continue.

    The players laser was fine and its remained fine right up until I traded it in for my Toshiba SD900E.

    Personally I'd check it throughly with some normal audio CD's and try cleaning the VCDs in question.

    Hope this helps,

    Damian

    Personally I think your player is fine. I'd try to get some original i.e not copied VCD's to be sure.

    Pioneer players are reasonably reliable.

    The Toshiba SD900E is great at playing CD's. It was the main reason for the upgrade, although I was quite shocked at the picture looking so much more natural than my old Pioneer.

    It certainly kicked the Denon DV3300 DVD-A player into touch in the demo I had.

    Hope this helps,

    Damian :p
