Toshiba SD-3750 - very brief flicker problem

I have a Toshiba SD-3750 DVD player, and on some movies, there's a very brief (1/10 of a second or less, probably) flicker, where the screen is all scrambled, like it doesn't know how to decode the information. It occurs at the same spots everytime, usually inbetween one high-intensity camera shot transferring to another high-intensity camera shot, or from a low-intensity scene to a high-intensity shot or vice versa. I think it always occurs inbetween camera shots, not in the middle of a camera shot where there isn't an edit to another camera shot. For instance, it happens probably 5 or 6 times during the Menu sequence on the Matrix DVD. There's a bunch of scenes edited together, most of which are high-intensity with lots of explosions & action, and inbetween some of the the edits the screen goes mostly black and there's a bunch of scrambled colors & lines for the briefest of moments before returning to normal.

If anyone has any idea what's causing this or if there's any setting or anything else to fix this, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

I have a SD-1800 and mine does the same thing. It was only with X-Men 1.5 though. I haven't noticed it playing anything else.
