Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR

Open Question


The above captioned DVD player DVD-M108 was purchased in 2002 in singapore. Of late whenever I load a vcd or Audio CD it says loading and I can see the CD running for a very long time. It is in loading position for a very long time and then it says " NO DISK ". Sometimes when I use a DVD it loads for a very long time say almost 7 yo 8 minutes and then the picture is seen. It never loads a vcd or audio cd. Kindly let me know wheather it is a problem with the pick-up lense or PCB. Thomas K. Abraham

SOURCE: Samsung DVD-R130 will not load dvds, but will play CDs

I've gone through two of these machines in less than a year. They exhanged the first one because it stopped loading after a few weeks...the second one stopped loading dvd's after about 6 months. Now I'm out the money. Sounds like they must know this is a defect.

SOURCE: Samsung DVD-VR375 says "load" but tray for DVD/VCR won't open

I think you have problem in DVD deck assembly the owner manual won't help you if still under warranty bring back to Samsung if out of warranty you can buy the DVD deck from Samsung and replace by yourself
Let me know if you need part number for the DVD deck

SOURCE: My DVD player stays stuck on loading. How can I

If all DVD's you try act the same, I would clean the read head. If that doesn't work, then drive needs to be serviced. Hopefully nobody smked cigarettes near the unit as that coats the optics. Clean the read head VERY carefully with a Q tip and 99% isoprophyl alcohol. Ensure that no fibers get stuck around the read head... it is VERY fragile.

If only one disk won't finish loading, then the disk itself is probably bad and the drive is OK.

Testimonial: "Very helpful. We had a small kitchen fire that put out a lot of smoke, so that was probably the problem"

SOURCE: player will not load dvd. player closes and either

We have had MAJOR problems with Samsung BluRay players.. 60% failure rate...

The only one I got to work after this kind of error was to download a new firmware version by the Internet, burn a CD and boot up with that. That fixed one out of five or six failures....

SOURCE: Why does my samsung Blue Ray DVD player load to


Just need to verify if your trying to play a Bluray Disc or regular DVD?

If Bluray Disc:
All you need to do is to check on the FW version of you BD player. Go to Set-up > System > System Information. SW will be the FW version info. Please be informed that the latest FW version is v2.12. If it will not resolved the concern, try to verify if its happening to all of your Bluray Disc.

Sincerely yours,
Genius 101

Unlock my DVD player to watch VCD's.

VCD's do not have "regions" specification. The DVD player either can play VCD's, or cannot play VCD's. It's a format that is not very popular among manufacturers. I have two players that both play my VCD's, but I had to make sure they accepted that format before I bought them. This player accepts DVD and CD's but it did not say VCD's. It's kind of a proprietary format that was only really popular overseas. The PHILIPS DVP5140 is one that I just found that does play pretty much everything.

Player unable to load discs when inserted

I think I found these adjustments! There are two tiny surface-mount potentiometers (could be capacitors also) sitting in the small circuit on laser assembly.

this is exactly response I would like to hear - an expert opinion!

What I did with help of 1mm-wide screwdriver:

1) There were two surface-mount potentiometers marked with C1 and D. I tried first D. Turned it clock- and counterclockwise by about 45 degrees.
2) After each turn I opened and closed tray to force the player read DVD disc.
3) It did not help, "NO DISC", then I tried the same with C1, and again, no luck.
4) Finally, I came back to D and turned it by about 180 degrees in one direction. IT WORKED!!!

Moreover, seem that now player reads content of the DVD discs faster then before. Probably manufacturer did not really adjust it properly and upon the time something has degraded, so it failed eventually.

How about cleaning using compressed air( it looks like an aerosol paint can)? Cleaning using cotton buds will only clean the outer side of lens, compressed air in can will clean the inner side of the lens. its like cleaning you computer keyboard, ( actually compressed air in can are used to clean the keyboards). A 30psi pressure of clean air is enough to wipe the dirt out of dvd lenses.
