Is my Panasonic player dying?

Weird things: I have a Panasonic DVD-A110 (3 years old, I believe), and today it started glitching like mad. I watched 4 episodes of THE AWFUL TRUTH Vol. 2, and it kept freezing and restarting on the fourth episode. I put in the 2nd disc and it did the same thing. Then I tried THE TERMINATOR SE that I hadn't watched before -- got pixel breakup and then freezing. Put on the new PETER PAN for a few minutes, and that seemed fine. Tried THE GREEN MILE for a few minutes -- fine. FAWLTY TOWERS, which I'd watched before with no problem, and it immediately broke into pixels several times. So -- have I suddenly come across several crappy discs, or is my laser out of alignment or dirty? I'd welcome any suggestions. Thanks.

The easiest thing would be to try cleaning it. It could be that the optical pickup is starting to go.

A nice drop kick might help as well.
