Question about Samsung DVD-VR357

1 Answer

DVD-VR357 plays audio CD's and VHS but won't play DVD's

Unit reads DVD for several seconds, aborts and ejects.
No problems for audio CD nor for VHS. I feel like going back in time, using VHS to "tivo" my TV programs.What can I do about DVD operation?

    Just to clarify, the unit does not play any DVD. When I called Samsung Customer Service, they recommended that I clean the lens with a special disk. I did as instructed and tried on it a few times without success.

Why wont my samsung dvd-vr357 play blu ray disks


Educated guess is you need a blu ray player. I have several very expensive Pioneer Elite DVD players and they cannot play blu ray. Blu ray is a multi level glorified DVD which you need at least a blu ray player to play in almost all cases.

You can play dvds on a blue ray but not the reverse in most cases. If you play a dvd on a blu ray player it kicks the video up to HD for the DVD.

Vhs is stuck in machine. Won't play and won't eject.


There are any number of reasons why it won't play. The loading basket is jammed, the video tape has got tangled up in the mechanical section of the vcr or the loading gears are stripped. Unplug machine and remove top, [screws side and back] if the tape is spewed carefully remove by cutting it and clean tape particles, for any other problem have a technician check it out.

Samsung dvd vr-357; recorded DVD only plays on the player


You have to "Finalize" the disc before it will play on other units. Go to Disc Menu, Second choice listed(not in front of it right now) Selections to right will offer disc Finalize. Say YES.

I am trying to record to a blank dvd-r. I load a blank dvd-r into samsung-vr357 and it ejects it saying "Cannot read disc". I never get a chance to Format it or anything.


I bought a lens cleaner and ran it and it still would not accept blank dvd-r. I loaded some old recordings I made to see if they would play and they did. I noticed these were recorded on "Staples" brand dvd-r bought at Staples office supply store. I went out and bought some more of these and they work!! For whatever reason, the unit accepts these and I have made 5 copies and they all copy and play fine. Now i need to go get some more! The Maxell just won't work in my player. Too bad I bought 100!

If exact model is Samsung DVD-VR357, than it doesn't even has to recognise blank disc as your unit is DVD PLAYER with Video Casette Recorder.

See Specs. for your unit below:
Function Combination VCR Y Compatibility Playback Media DVD-R,DVD-RW,DVD+R,DVD+RW,CD-R/RW,CD,VHS, DVD-RAM Playback Formats MP3, WMA, JPEG, MPEG-4, DivX A/V Quality Progressive Scan Y HD Upconversion 720p/1080i Digital-to-Analog Converter 10-Bit/54MHz DTS Output Y Dolby Digital Surround Sound Y Connectivity HDMI CEC Y Convenience Child Protection Parental Control Physical Features Connectivity HDMI Output Y Component Video Output 1(Rear) S-Video Output 1(Rear) Composite Video Output 1(Rear) Coaxial Digital Audio Outputs 1(Rear) Optical Audio Output 1(Rear) Product Weight & Dimensions Dimension 16.9" x 3.1" x 11" Weight 8.8Lbs. Shipment Weight & Dimensions Dimension 20.2" x 7.1" x 15.1" Weight 12.1Lbs.

Closest model match for DVD recording unit would be DVD-VR375

Unfortunately you have player only and you won't be able to recor DVDs with it whatsoever.

Good luck

Playing back a DVD.


Does it do this only from the remote? Or does it do it when using the buttons on the front of the machine also? Even though the unit is only 3 months old-I'd go to the manufacture's website and check support Q&A, and see if there is a Firmwear update.
the problem could also be in the brand of blank disks you are using. Some machines can record on all brands- others cannot. Sometimes the speed rating of the blank DVD can hose things up. Go to www.videohelp.com and put in your machines model numbers- they might have a list of compatable blank disks for your model-if that is the case. Let me know what you come up with. ONE OTHER QUESTION- does the DVD copy you made work in anyother DVD player- that would tell us a lot.

Pre-recorded dvd won't eject/entire system frozen


Try unplugging the machine so it will reset itself. Then plug it back in. That has worked for me in the past.
