Make sure your speakers and dvd player disk is clean. Skips are common from the lazer reading and will read much better with a quick check on the cd.

I have a Zenith I played a dvd an it worked fine - put another movie in the dvd player and was going to watch that one and it never read - screen kept saying 'reading'. I tried another dvd and the...

try using a CD cleaner disk..

How old is the system?
DO CDs work when you try them?
Put a disk in... remembering the position it was in..
Then try to play the disk...
Eject if it does not play and look to see if it has moved to a different position...
If not, there is a motor problem or the laser is not sensing the disk being there.

Have you ever opened up the main box of the system?
Has anyone else been inside it?

If yes, then maybe it is time to do it again to observe if there is movement of the laser pickup..

Hi there! I was using my hts3357 for 2 years with no problem. Now i have one: when i insert DVD/CD, it can list the files (divx) in it, but doesn't play. On the other hand, when i copy the "same" movies...

I would try a disc cleaner and using a can of compressed air. be careful not to let the device receive any of the actual propellant by using small bursts of air. otherwise if u hold the nozzle down to long u could do damage to the device other than good. sometimes the eye is strong enough or not dirty enough to read just the file portion but not good enough to read the movie portion. It can read the Usb part due to the reader using the microchip part in the player not the eye of the dvd player. A usb port and a optical drive work entirely independant. usually if it won't read it means it is either the eye dirty or the eye is not working anymore. independant electronic / tv repair shops can replace the eye for approx. $50.00. But if the cleaner doesn't help letting the player read the movies again. Then I would suggest taking it to a shop and having the eye replaced or just do a "tune up" on it.

DVD player wont read disc.....


how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load all Cd's/movies.The weak lens is what is making the player select discs, that is, not playing all discs.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's/movies with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Samsung dvd player ht-dm150 (watching movies)

It is most likely that the laser is not a problem because it can read the first part of the disk. If the laser is defective, it willn ot recognize the disk. The problem is probably the seek mechanism. It can only access the inner tracks but cannot read the tracks further from the center.
