Question about Samsung DVD-VR357

Dvd disk will not play

  1. Everything seems normal with all aspects of the dvd connecting with the tv. I tshows the icon of a spinning disk in the corner and then, after a few seconds, a box pops up with a message that the disk is not ok. Tried with multiple dvd disks and the result is the same. No problem with the vhs.

    1. The solution sent will probably solve the problem but I have not had the time to see which of the suggestions are going to be required to get the DVD working. I am most appreciative.

DVR620KU From the HDMI connector, how to get non-pinched vertical HDMI images on the TV monitor and on the DVD. Recorded DVD's have been Finalized


Using a DVD-RW disk, try ALL different recording settings even if they don't seem probable and record a sample. If output is correct with all BUT the HDMI-cable, go through ALL picture format settings on the TV when a HDMI-cable is used. Different discs and HDMI cables don't have anything to do with this. I'm still chewing on this...

Why does my DVD player say STOP in Upper Right Corner?


Sounds like your laser mechanism is no longer capable of reading a disk. If it does it with other disks then you can be sure of the diagnosis.

And due to parts cost and labor a repair is usually not cost effective.

Disney D7500PDD Portable DVD Player doesnt spin DVD


Very Good Daniel,
if you are good with a srewdriver.. you could use a DVD from a computer and swap it to disney
Does the door to DVD slides out or pop the lid.
You still can swap if you are careful and you know what you are doing
I've done a few times.
Let me know in the future, if you can't, you can send to me for repair

Won't play dvd's


Try buying a Laser Lens Cleaner Disc from Wal-Mart, FYE music store, or any other place that might sell DVD players. Your Laser Lens that reads the DVD'S is full of dust. Try using the laser lens cleaner disc i mentioned to clean the laser lens.

Yamaha dv-c6760 we can only see the top half of our subtitles


Hello shell
I do not believe your problem is with the DVD player. It most likely is with your TV. What happens alot is the picture on a TV is set to a different aspect ratio(ie:4:3,16:9). and sometimes it stretches or zooms the picture, allowing part to be cut off the edge of the screen. This aspect ratio problem can have two causes now that I think of it. The TV or the DVD player. To determine and fix, follow these steps.
PART 1-determining problem-
1 Watch regular TV for awhile and get some infomercials(yes, you have to watch Billy Mayes) on the bottom and edges of the screen, are there words and 800 numbers cut off, if so, your problem is with the TV and skip now to part 2(not step 2)
2 If you can see the whole number and everything , determine if your TV auto adjusts or not. Switch to your DVD player and see if the screens seems to move(shrink or enlarge). If it does shrink or enlarge, your problem is with the DVD player and you can now proceed to part 2.



PART 2-solving problem-
1 By now, you have determined whether the problem is with your tv or dvd player. From this point on "it, it's will refer to whichever has the problem
2 Go into it's menu
3 search for "picture" "video" or "setup"
4 Search for "aspect ratio" or anything containing "4:3" "16:9" or the words "stretch" "zoom" or "widescreen"
5 Set to 4:3 (sometimes 4:3 has multiple options such as stretch, zoom, and normal, if so, select normal)
6 ***OPTIONAL*** If you want widescreen, select 16:9(again if multiple choices, choose normal)
7 Insert or select a DVD and test your subtitles


If this does not work, please post a comment and I will help you further.




Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate

Disk rotating and a message "invalid disk"


you can try manually cleaning the laser lens ( gently wipe , do not press down hard , it is suspended by fine wires ) using a q-tip and a drop of that cleaning solution you got with the laser lens disc. ( fluff another q-tip a little ) then dry wipe it with another q-tip and try a disc.
you can look at the laser lens and see if you see the laser come on also to determine if that is working ( do not look directly into the laser ! )
if the laser works but it still does not read discs after cleaning it manually , then there is a problem with the focus coil on the laser or the signal board is bad

Disk rotating and a message "invalid disk"


I work for Coby technical support. Our customer service phone number is 1-800-727-3592.

If the unit is showing "invalid disk" on every disk that you try to play, unfortunately, the unit has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. Our warranty is 90 days from the date of purchase. If you've had the player longer than 90 days, I regret to inform you it is out of warranty.


If you feel this solution doesn't deserve a good rating, please let me know why so that I may better assist you. If there is anything more I can do to help, I will!
