    Q: My DVDs and CDs are freezing and skipping?
    A: Try doing a factory reset to clear any changes. In DVD mode, 1. Press the setup button. 2. Use the cursor button to select Rating, then press the enter button. 3. Use the cursor button to shift and select Factory Set, then press the enter button. 4. Use the cursor button to shift and select yes, then press enter button. 5. Turn off machine by pressing the power button on machine. 6. Wait 5 minutes and turn the machine back on. Also, clean the laser assembly while the unit is off. Find the laser eye located in the center compartment. You will have to remove the cover of the machine to locate the lens (2 screws on each side and 3-4 on the back). It is perfectly round, and made of glass with a bluish tint. To clean, lightly moisten a Q-Tip in rubbing alcohol, and gently swab just the glass lens, taking care not to soak it.

    It should tell you in the manual, how to reset to factory settings. It's usually in the troubleshooting area. If it's not there, contact Durabrand. They can tell you.

    Sometimes unplugging it for several hours, will reset electronics, to factory settings. Sometimes it doesn't.
