I have Sony DAV-SR2 home theatre system and after 4 months problems started to appear. After the pause on the middle of the film, disc stops and plays on its own. It pauses and then begins to play again. These breaks are sometimes very short and sometimes last for 5 seconds. It's as if the disc is damaged, but it actually isn't. These breaks are very rare when they start, but they are increasing in both number and lenght as the film progresses towards the end. It's very annoying to watch the film with this breaks. It never happens in the first part of the movie and NOT on all DVDs, only on few and ALWAYS in the second part (after the pause in the middle). It first started with Star Wars Episode V disc (from Trilogy box set). After pause at the middle of the film, play was interupted by this short breaks. The same thing happens with my Shawshank Redemption and Pitch Black DVD. All of my DVDs are 100% original. It seems as if the lens is too weak to read some DVDs. Is there anybody out there who could help me and tell me what the is going on with my DVD player?
