Question Sony BDV-E500W playback problem?

I have a Sony BDV-E500W Blu-ray player that's about nine years old.
I've noticed a large number of my Blu-ray movies are having playback problems such as freezing or my Blu-ray player says "Cannot operate the disc".
I have 16 Twilight Time Blu-ray movies, and four of them have playback problems. Five Paramount movies have similar problems.
I have about 340 Blu-ray movies, and so far I think about 15 have playback problems. but I haven't tested all of them.


1. If the Blu-ray player has a dirty lens, would that cause the playback problems on ALL my movies?
(i.e., since all of my movies don't have the problem, then a dirty lens is not causing the playback problems).

2. Is anyone else having playback problems with Twilight Time Blu-ray movies?

Do you have the latest firmware installed?

It's from 2011 so that may be an issue in itself?

Yes, I have the latest firmware installed.
It's odd to me that none of these Twilight Time movies had playback problems when I first watched them 1-2 years ago, but only now the playback problems are starting.
One movie (20th Century Fox) I watched last year cannot be played by my Blu-ray player at all.
If my Blu-ray player has a dusty lens, why doesn't it affect ALL of my Blu-rays, instead of only a few?

Any other suggestions as to what the problem is?

PS---I'm going to ask about the Twilight Time movies in the TT area.
