Question about Samsung HT-DB120 System

1 Answer

System switches itself off

My player switches itself off a few minutes after the dvd has been playing - no warning just gone! I start it from the beginning straight away and it plays fine. Any suggestions on how to remedy this? Many thanks in advance for your help. Cheers, Tina

Re: system switches itself off

The HT-DB120 has an automatic shut down that should turn off after 20 min of idle mode, it seems yours is malfunctioning. try disconecting the DVD from power for a few minutes.

Blockbuster dvd movie put in Bose player and pressed Play and showed NO DVD (it was in slot)and now will not eject. took front panel off dvd player hoping an emergency button but no. HELP

Completely power down the sound system, and unplug it from the wall socket. Wait a minute, and plug it in again. Power the system on.As soon as the power is on, press the OPEN/CLOSE button on the console. After a few seconds to a minute, the disk drawer will open.

When I turn my unit on, it will turn itself off in a few second.

have you checked to see if any of your speakers are shorted out? the rt2870does have a self protection system in place such that if theres too much power being drawn from the system or if a short occurs it will shut off. or the switch that powers the sub may have gone bad so try disconnecting the sub and see if that helps. i have the same system and i had the same problem and i had to replace the onboard sub-woofer power switch.

First of all,if you are using rental dvds, there might be scratch which your dvd player might have an issue to read it;however,if you have tried many dvds in this player and you are having this issue, it is time to move on to another dvd player.
I recommend a Pioneer dvd player.

Progressive scan turned on - how do you turn it off?

I'm not very familiar with this namebrand on electronics, but they are all the same anyways.To check if this function is on, usually the player's lcd screen would have a "P", "PROGRESSIVE" or "P-SCAN" on it. First, make sure you remove all dvd's or cd's from the player, then look for a button on the remote, or the unit itself that say's "P-SCAN", "PROGRESSIVE" or "RESOLUTION", once you find it, push it, sometimes they would indicate the resolution on the player's lcd screen (480i, 480p,720p,1080i, 1080p), if not, on the tv itself. The resolution you are looking for is 480i for the type of cables you are using (composite RCA). Give it a try, and let me know how it goes...

My DVD player no longer plays original dvd's - only copied dvd's

some times when you create DVD movies by high speed DVD writers, your data cannot be read by dvd player with high performance. it s due to speed mismatching. always write DVDs with Normal speed in order to use with DVD players. while in case oof PC-DVD -Rom it does not happens. it can read any high speed wriiten DVDs. DVD-Rom in PC are more precise than DVD players. Some times Weak DVD player Lens system can also mis read.

Unit automatically switches off

Maybe all you need is to dust off the DVD player's pickup. I have had this happen several times with several players. After dusting the pickup, those players are still in service.
