Question about Samsung DVD-P144 DVD Player
Hi i own a Samsung P144 DVD Player, sometimes the DVD's wont play at all and other times they keep jumping. Making them unwatchable?
I thought about purchasing a Disc Clinic cleaner too if this helps
Thanks in advance

try checking on the recording mode of the DVD. V recording mode produces more compatible DVD disc. Stay away from VR mode. You may refer to your manual.

Exactly the same problem with mine. I even went shopping today after months of buying dvds that wouldn't play, to buy a new player. I then had a silly revelation. I pressed open and with a tight grip on a cotton bud I swept all that I could reach within the recorder. Can you believe it but it worked. Now I have my multiregion back and it has so far played all of the PAL 2 and PAL 4 dvds that I have bought since the PSO came on months ago. I don't what the problem was or if this is relative to your problem but I wanted to let you know....

I have had his problem several times. The fan pulls in dust at a rate of knots. The optics are so sensitive that a speck will cause the proble. What I do when this happens is to get a can of air cleaner and blow out the dust from the optics. Now look, most of you people are savvy. However, here are a few caveats for the uninitiated.
1. Ensure you have unplugged it first before removing the cover and don't touch the power board.
2. Dont hold these air cans upside down or sideways because if you do then you will squirt sub zero degrees liquid 'whatever' onto the lens (very bad).
After unplugging, just undo the 5 screws and take off the lid. The optics section is in the very middle of the dvd transport component (there's a ribbon attached to it). Blow this out with the air can a.k.a 'air duster' (available at most electronics shops or online). Replace the lid and try a dvd that didn't work before. If it fails, redo the job.
Hope this helps,

I have a Samsung BD-P1600 and was having similiar problem...played thru previews but would not play. Instead of just powering off/on... I pulled the plug on the ac cord out and left it out about 20 minutes and it now works !
