Question about Samsung DVD-R155

1 Answer

Player won't read a DVD

I have a Samsung DVD-R155. When I insert a DVD, the screen reads "load", but eventually it screen will say it can't read the DVD, and then ejects the DVD. It doesn' t matter if it is a new or used DVD. I have the same problem, insert new dvd-r disc and it says loading then spits the disc back out with a "disc cannot be read" message, i can't even play back old dvd-r's that iv'e recorded on in the past. It plays back original dvds that i've purchased, just not recordable ones.

    Same exact problem.. Can play back purchased movie DVDs but cant play back recorded DVDs or new media.. I took the case apart and blew the eye of the laser with canned air but did not fix the problem. Is this unit junked? If so, what a piece of ****.

    It used to work - but now I get the same message where it will say "check disk" or something. This is when I put in a dvd -rw. However on new pre recorded dvds - no problem. If the dvd is old - sometimes does not work.

    I have this same problem except will not even play a commerical movie. i have had this unit since july of 08 called samsung today, and they said it has a one year parts warranty but only a 90 day labor warranty. so i would have to pay the flat rate of 64.00, i only paid 59.99 when it was on clearence from bestbuy. i have a samsung dlp and surround sound, and am very happy with them. but this sucks.

    same problem. I went to de SAT and they changed de hole lasser beam system but after 9 months it does the same thing the lasser has been cleaned an so. But does not work propertly. Some of the SAt told me Samsung uses to have problems with de lasser and the operative system. It uses to hang.

    Exact same!!!
    When it used to work, their menu system was the BEST!!!
    I could record NEW RULES, label them, and play at the push of a button.

LG DVD recorder not playing DVD


When a unit does that it can be a fingerprints on a disc not letting it read the disc and or also that it is not finalized. Can also be a disc format that does not work on unit. Some units only work with either -R or +R and not both. Hope this helps

Not recognizing DVD player


i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!


get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems
