I actually had this same problem with the same unit. There is a little bump inside the door that connects with the switch. You will see it if you open it and look down near the hinge of the door. When you shut it, it tells the player that the door is shut. I think there is a design flaw and it doesn't connect well, even if all the components are intact. I just got a little piece of tape and folded it into a little square pad, then taped it securely to the bump. Now the switch makes good contact with the bump and it works great. Good luck!

There is a pressure switch that gets pushed down when the disc door is closed. Ether the arm on the switch is busted, the switch is bad or a busted wire to the switch.

How do I get the disc drive of a dvd recorder to open after getting out the disc and resetting the machine?


Go back through the release process you did the first time to remove the stuck disk. it appears that part of the mechanism that moves the drive did not engage again.

If disk door wont open - stays locked


I called Samsung who suggested pushinhg the play button on the panel and the power button on the remote together. "No disc" eventually showed on the screen and pushing the open/close door button worked.

However, my remote wouldn't work, even after changing batteries.
The machine did play. Unfortunately, later that night I tried another DVD and it locked up again. The next day I tried the above 2-step and it worked again, so maybe the other DVD caused trouble. But I cant get my remote to do anything except the 2-step listed above.

I don't use the player very often.

It will not let me insert a disc and when I press the eject button, it sounds like it is going to eject a disc and then it makes a weird noise for 5 seconds. Then, it will say CLOSE for a bit. I got one...


It sounds like you have 2 disks stuck in there. TV repair shop, or try shaking the dvd player lightly while dvd is trying to open. You may need to help open the door, but too much effort could cause harm.

Dvd slider door won't close.


Hi, is it fully open, or just partially open?
Is it nearly shut but just jammed? If so have you tried inserting a flat peice of plastic and pulling the draw open. You could do this with no power to the dvd player, It might be that you haven't inserted the disc properly and it is wedged in.

Try all this and see how you get on.

Says open on screen but door is closed and movie wont play


The switch that detects whether the door is open or not could be defective. You can locate the switch by the notch on the disk lid and where it inserts into the base. Try triggering the switch by pocking it with a paper clip while the lid is open. If it says that it is closed and the disc plays then the lid isn't closing securely. If it still says the lid is open after you can hear or feel the switch click then it may need to be replaced.

There's a slot on the bottom where you can insert a small slotted screwdriver and slide it to the left to get it open.

H02 Error after inserting a dvd disk


The trouble started with an error to close and open the DVD drawer. It indicated "close" when the drawer was open, or "no disc" when the DVD was inside, and I had to try many times before I get the right response and go on with the procedures.
But then it also started playing just a few MP3 tracks and stopping to work, showing again the inserted DVD data. Later H02, and then H07 and STOP. It doesn't even start playing stuffs, movies or MP3 tracks!

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.
