So I tested a few more discs to see if it happen again, and yes it has happened on all of the discs I've tested, but I managed to capture the effect quite clearly on camera on one of them (because on this one it was quite big).

I know it can't be the discs, They all were playing great on my 925.

I've also thought about dirt or other stuff inside the player, haven't opened to see if there is any yet but will check (don't worry, I ain't touching anything this time, open, look, close, that's it)
You are saying not to clean lens with alcohol, why is that, and so what to use (just to know), I never have cleaned an LD player lens before.

Anyway, thanks for your advises.

Finally got my eyes on City Hunter : Shinjuku Private Eyes.
I was lucky enough to have a theater (the only one) in my town showing it in original version with subs (only one screening on Thursday) so I jumped on the occasion, and boy, was it worth the wait !
Let's be honest, the movie is quite far from perfect but it was a real pleasure all along, the sound and picture were great, at every music or character appearance, we were all cheering like fanboys, it probably was the best time I ever had in a theater.
So if you have the occasion (and like City Hunter, but seriously, who doesn't ?) go see it !

If I'm not mistaken, the components output on the DVL series (919 and 909) are only for dvd output, not LD.
From what I can see, your screen is a crt, so if the player is already plugged using composite, I don't think you can get a much better picture than what you have (maybe try using s-video to compare and use which you prefer). Although, while the DVL serie isn't renowned for their picture quality, maybe the laser itself isn't in a great shape and might need some cleaning and/or a proper calibration (for which I can't really help since I don't know much on that) or is just used from years of service.

While reading through this thread, I remembered that one of my LD had some promotional items in it. The one above is a disc sized flyer advert for a contest to win a trip to Hollywood.
All you had to do was fill in some stuff about how you discovered LD, why do you think it's superior etc...
But also answer some real hard questions on the bottom left like : "who is the director of The Thing ? a)John Boorman b)John Carpenter c)John Wayne"

The second one is a promotional flyer to subscribe to the french magazine " Les Années Laser "

There is nothing really noteworthy about LDs or the magazine on it, it's just that there is a nice and sexy Miss Laserdisc on the back

I just find it funny to have a Laserdisc serves as hat, I'm waiting on a cosplay of her :D
