Question about Samsung HT-Z310T Theater System

Samsung HT-Z310 "Disc Error" Message....won't recognize disc


I just purchased this home theater system 2 months ago and last night in the middle of a movie it froze. I thought it may be the DVD so I cleaned it and put it back in. It kept "searching" for the DVD which usually it goes straight to the menu. After about 30 seconds it says Disc Error...I've tried several movies...ones that previously worked on it. I shut it off overnight and this morning my daughter got a movie to play but it froze too halfway in. Any ideas??

    I too am having this same problem. I insert a dvd and at the bottom of the blue screen I see the word "Loading" along with a time bar. After about 30 seconds it stops "trying" to load and shows "Disc Error" in the above right area of the screen. Has anyone found a solution to this problem or has Samsung given anyone an explanation?

    Hi There,

    My wife and I are having the exact same issue when trying to watch a DVD on our barely 3-month old system. The sound works when set to TV, but we can't get DVDs to play consistently. The one we're trying to watch freezes at different points; sometimes at the previews, sometimes in the middle of a chapter. This is beyond frustrating and when we tried to play the DVD in our computer, it worked. Tech Support at Samsung said we may have to mail them the main unit, which is completely awful, a pain in the a** and likely to cost a ton of money to safely ship it. Anyone have any other ideas? Next step, lens cleaner. THIS IS SO FRUSTRATING!

    I have the same problem and have had this unit for about 9 months. All of the sudden I was watching Iron Man about 2 months ago or so and the video slowed to showing only a second of the movie and then skipping and then showing another second of the movie. The other night I put in Underworld 3 and watched it all the way through and then yesterday I tried to watch it again and it froze in the beginning. I ejected the dvd and put it in again and then the disc error came up. I was able to then watch a few minutes of the movie before the skipping and then the same thing happened. I turned off the player and now it is only giving me the "Disc Error".

    you will find eventually that samsung will apologize for your inconvenience and then tell you to send in your unit for a repair that will cost more than your system is worth

What r the codes for ge universal remote for kirsh home theater system model k3

Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.
Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...

Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

How to connect speakers logitech z 5500 to the TV Samsung UN32F5500 32-Inch 1080p 60Hz Slim Smart LED

Hello there!
I have seen manuals of both the systems. You have two options to connect Logitech z5500 speakers to Samsung UN32F5500 TV.
1. With Optical Audio Cable.


2. Stereo Ear Phone Connection.
Simply plug in Green earphone cable of Logitech Speakers to Green Audio out Jack described on Page 7 of the TV manual. If you are using stereo EP you may not experience 5.1sound separation. And it is also mentioned that you should not use other two audio cables of the tri-EP-cable provided with Logitech speakers.

Have a nice day!
