Dirty or defective laser lens. try manual cleaning of the lens if you know how to open the unit top cover. manually clean the lens using cotton swab gently rubbing it in circular motion. blowing of air to remove dust will not really help clean the lens.

Cd not working say disk not workable


Make sure that you are using a proper audio CD - some players will not work with computer DATA disks, especially re-writeable disks.
Those that do accept computer disks often only like one format either R+ ( and RW+) or R- (and RW-). Most do not accept both.
If your system will not work with any disks, including proper professionally recorded CDs then try purchasing a CD cleaning disk (a computer CD/DVD drive cleaning disk will work okay). It is like a normal CD but with a tiny little brush mounted on it, which will clean the lens of the laser unit as the disk spins.
You can also try cleaning off the lens by opening the lid of the player and using a small paint brush (dry) to remove any accumulated dust.

Dvd changer won't play


First have look around see if the discs caused any damage to any of the parts. However you need to be a little clearer on what happens when you attempt to play a disc. For instance does it read the disc? If not perhaps some dust got into the lens area and you might need to clean it.

Two problems at the same time: VCR plays split screen and DVD player won't ready Disks (Errrrr)


Getting a new one is about all you can do in this case. A repair for this type of problem would likely cost more than the replacement.

I have had this on a number of other players. First try the disks in question on another DVD player after giving them a thorough clean. If they work there then you know the problem is not with the disks.

After that (assuming the RH299 is actually working in every other respect e.g. on HDD), run a laser cleaning DVD/CD in the machine to clean the laser lens. If your machine is out of warranty then you can try opening it and cleaning the laser lens with rectified spirits/pure alcohol. Then try the disks again. If they still don't play, then it's off to a local electronics expert to see if realigning or replacing the laser and transport mechanism is economically viable, or buy a new machine.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player


My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Try using 8x and lower DVDs and -R ones; try cleaning with CD cleaning disk and then try recording a few min again. If that doesn't help try unplugging and waiting about 30min then put in disk that was previously recorded and go to last item and play it to end (if 2hr long skip to last skip and then play until it finishes) - now try just recording a few min using the manual DVD record button and see if error comes up again - usually this unplugging somehow resets everything. Hope this helps ya'll.
