Wont play dvd

After working fine for two years, I was in set up mode and something went wrong. When disk is inserted it will go through load process and counter starts, but then the word "root" appears and that's it. Any ideas? Genno.

Since it went into "disk recovery mode" it now will not play dvds

Got the same problem. Happened 2 months after guarantee expired. **** machine. The only good thing is the harddrive and that is made by HITACHI not Panasonic! I go Sony next time. Panasonic quoted £200 plus to fix the problem. I only paid £220 when I bought it new.

DVD will not load/format new disk

I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.

Play Back

Some DVD players can't read -R & -RW disks. When you finalize make sure it is in Video mode not VR mode so the recorded disk will be able to work in most other DVD players. Also some DVD players only read recorded disks rated up to 1x, 4x, 8x, 16x, or a combination of these speeds.

DVD starts to load but does not play.

Not sure if anyone found this solution, worked for me.
1. Press SETUP
3. Change the code to 255 using the RIGHT arrow key

This will unlock the DVD player for all regions.
