philips dvd player

For Christmas I got a Philips dvd player. model # dvd782 ch21.
I have probably watched 4 movies and each movie seems to "stick". Just yesterday I watched one and it stopped and after a little while it started back at the beginning. Is this common? At first I thought it was the dvd but I have had friend view the same movie in theirs and no problem. It is past the 14 day return policy. Am I out of luck or what??

Thanks in advance for your is as always greatly appreciated.

bradie, This is really Big Mikes thing here, dvd players. I take it you tried cleaning the optics with a cleaning disc and that did not work. Did you check the user manuals troubleshooting section on this problem?

Cool Try...

I would at least clean it. From setting so long with no play dust could settle on the optic. If that doesn't do it the focus etc of the unit has drifted beyond tolerance and will need to go to a shop for alignment. Phillips is not exactly what I would call "High End" might even have trouble calling it mid end so you may consider upgrading to a more sophisticated unit.
