You don't, you just press the FORWARD button on remote during DVD playback to 'fast forward' (pressing this button a second time during playback increases forward scan speed). The forward and reverse buttons have 'SLOW/SEARCH' printed above them on the remote. The other buttons next to them are the PREV/NEXT buttons (SKIP/INDEX).
DVD playback speed/skip/search is mostly a manual user function; it cannot be auto set.
I tried the above steps, but each time when restarting the DVD player, it said 'reset' and asked for the language to be selected again. Pressing the "Fast Forward Fast Rewind Fast Forward Up Down" sequence caused the player to lock up and require powering off at the wall.
I found on another web site that there are different initial sequences. Once I use the one for Region 2, it worked fine.
I found the instructions below on another web site, but it worked for me...
Make sure there is no disc in the player.
Turn on the player (you can use remote control or front panel, it doesn't matter)
Wait for "No Disc" message to appear on the TV screen.
Press the Repeat button on remote (plain, not A-B).
Press the correct sequence of buttons of remote according to the original region code of your player (it's on the sticker on the back panel of the player). FF = fast forward, FR = fast rewind.
Region 2 players: FF, FR, FF, UP, DOWN
Region 3 players: FF, PLAY, FR, UP, LEFT
Region 4 players: FR, PLAY, DOWN, DOWN, RIGHT
Region 5 players: FF, UP, DOWN, STOP, RIGHT
Region 6 players: LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, PLAY, LEFT
If you pressed the correct sequence, a small white number 0 will appear somewhere on the top right of the screen. The white number 0 of the same font and size as the "No Disc" message, so don't confuse with the red "not allowed" sign that would appear when you press a function that's not available.
Turn the player off and on again, then you can pop in a DVD of any region and watch immediately.
There is a part that is called an idler wheel assembly that is critical for play, rewind, and fast forward, and may have stopped working. The second possibility is that the drive belt that runs the idler assembly has broken or come off.
Found this on the web some time ago. Samsung C500 DVD player. Use the following steps to make this player region free;
1. Start the DVD with no disc and use the remote;
2. Click the Repeat (not the Repeat A/B) button located far left of the remote.
3. Click the Fast Rewind button <<
4. Click the Next Chapter button >>'
5. Click the Fast Forward button >>
6. Click the Prev Chapter button '<<
7. Click the Play button >
8. Once the grid selections appear, use the arrow buttons to select/highlight "9" for region free. Make sure to select "save and exit" as shown below to screen on your television. The player will shut-off automatically. Restart and play with any DVDs.
Hope this works!
possible that the drive belt has broken or is slipping. Disable all outside noise and listen closely as you attempt play or fast forward button. can you hear a motor turning? I have replaced a drive belt in these but may be hard to find except maybe on ebay (search for an as-is unti for parts only).
