Bottom Line:   
I reciently was given a broken dvp855 that was as good as new but would freeze up after a few minutes. I took it apart and found that the post that held the gear for tilting the disk was was broken on the bottom side (cheap plastic). It has a stop and keeps the gear from rotating too far. A little epoxy fixed it and it runs fine. Just thought id pass it along.

Bottom Line:   
I bought this from a friend, as he was having problems very simular to those described below. I opend up the unit and found the problem (at least with his) was a gear that adjusts the angle of the disc relative to the laser. I took a razor and removed a small bit of plastic it was rubbing on, and lo and behold it works like a dream. I have been using t for about 9 months since with no problem. It even reads a DVD that my $1400 Denon THX DVD player refused to read (Gladiator). Is it better than my 4 year old Denon THX unit? No. Is it good enough for daily use in a home theater? Yes. Please feel free to email me if you would like to learne the method I used to fix mine. I would be happy to share that with others.

Bottom Line:   
Same as others--worked okay for first few months, then would only play 1/2 of DVDs with occasional blockiness/freezing, now refuses to even recognize disks. Steer clear of this product.

Bottom Line:   
DVP-855 is a dud. You basically pay for renting it, because it fails to last the life of even a $ 1.00 dollar transistor radio. Company expects you to send the product and $ 80.00 for a replacement. So, go spend 160.00 on a good DVD player and walk past a DVP-855.

Bottom Line:   
An inexpensive unit that has a lot of features. It played DVD's well for the first month or so, but then start giving us problems. Now it is completely unusable... Even the most defect-free DVD will not play in the unit. Everything freezes up into digitized blocks on the screen.

I bought this at Radio Shack, and have since then gone back to the store to see if they will take it back or give me store credit. They would do neither because it had been over 30 days. I recently wrote to the corporate office to see if they could offer some sort of solution... I'll update this when I hear back from them.
