Is the image freezing (you see a still image on your television) or is the image just dropping out? If the later, then try another HDMI cable, as a bad HDMI cable can cause these kind of errors.
Try connecting HDMI to a television directly if you are going through a receiver and see if the same thing occurs.
If the image is freezing, your laser head could just be dirty or otherwise obstructed.
You will remove the screws on the side (two on each side) and back of the player (5 screws). Remove the top cover of the player by lifting up and pulling the cover away from the player.
When you remove the top cover you will see the loader. The loader has two pieces of electrostatic tape and two screws (one on each side). Remove these.
On each side of the loader there are two black clips. Push on on one of the clips and pull up on the metal cover. You will hear a snap. Do the same for the clip on the same side as the one you just depressed. Repeat for the other side.
You can now safely remove the top of the loader and gain access to the servo. Now clean the laser head surface with a cotton swab and alcohol. Also clean the rubber spindle on the servo to make sure there is no hair or lint which can make the discs load off center.
Reverse the steps to put the player back together and try disc playback and see if the same errors persist.

OPPO BDP-80 Blu-ray Disc Player Firmware Update
Release date: March 06, 2012.
Category: Latest Official Release
Main Version: BDP80-25-0301
Loader Version: BT0500
Sub Version: MCU80-06-0118
This version is designed for the OPPO BDP-80 Blu-ray Disc players. Comparing to the previous official release version BDP80-24-1104, the major changes are:
Resolved the random image freezing issue observed on several Warner Brothers Blu-ray movies. The problem happens when "BD-Live Network Access" is set to "ON" in the player's setup menu. Sample titles include "Sex and the City 2 (BD, 2011)" and "Inception (BD, 2011)". This issue has been resolved in this release.
Resolved the loading failure issue observed on several recently-released Blu-ray series, including "Fringe" (Season 3, 2011), "Chuck" (Season 4, 2011), "Dexter" (Season 5, 2011), "Star Wars" and "Lord of the Rings". Normally, these movies can be played with no problems when initially loaded. However, if disc playback has been stopped or the disc ejected, the disc would fail to load again the next it is played. The TV would get a black screen and the front panel display would remain at 00:00:00. The cause of this error is related to the discs' resume function implemented in BD-Java. This firmware properly handles the resume function.
Other general disc compatibility improvement based on recent and upcoming releases. Sample titles include "Contagion (BD, 2012)" and "Mildred Pierce (BD, 2012)".
