Sony Blu Ray player freezes when disc first starts?


Novice Member
I have a new Sony blu ray player where the picture freezes for about 2 seconds when I start a disc’s main title.

When this happens it seems like the laser is sort of “waking up” from hibernation. After that, there are no more freezes throughout the entire movie. It’s definitely not any of my discs, they are all perfect and play perfectly on my old ps3.

The freeze happens with all types of discs- dvd, blu ray, and 4k. It happens only when I start a new disc.

For example, let’s say I begin to play a movie that is an MGM studio release - the movie starts with the MGM lion growling. Well I can hear the lion growl, but the lion’s head isn’t moving, but then it does start to move again after about 2 seconds of freezing. It happens with other studio releases also, not just MGM. The audio isn’t interrupted, but the video is being frozen every time.

Sony Blu Ray player owners - do any you experience this?
