Samsung DVD-V5500 DVD tray intermittently wont open

I have a Samsung DVD-V5500 combo which is just over a year old. The problem is that the dvd tray doesn't open. The displays says "open" but there is no action. Sometimes fiddling with the exposed tray makes it work. I took the cover off aswell to see if anyhting was obstructing the movement and after plugging it in again it work for a day then again wouldn't open. Any advise?

    thank you for your quick response. When I took the top cover off I had a look at the belt and it seemed fine. I tested it many times before putting the cover back on and it opened everytime.

    Not sure what "in switch assy..." means. Is this a switch on the board?

    Thanks again

Sometimes the loading belt can cause this problem or else have seen the tray in switch assy cause this as well.

Hello! i have a samsung dvd vcr combo. 4 yers old. the vcr eats my tapes and pic is jumpy. what can i do to fix?


HELLO

You have a Tape Path problem here. There a few causes but I think the main one is the pinch roller may be worn/mis-shaped or even dirty. You need to have the tape path cleaned totally first and to try the deck again (has it been serviced/cleaned in four years?) If it still has the problem you will then need to have the pinch roller replaced.

There is also the possibility that the VCR deck may be developing a mechanical fault.

I wish you well with it. (:-)

Samsung v5500 dvd combo problem


When you get a whirring sound, some click and disk not engaging on some disks, and not others , that is because lens cannot read the inital track on the CD/DVD.

This is either because disks are scratched , dirty or ruined by light and heath, or because the lens is dirty.

Try using a lens cleaner like the ones here.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart and the lens cleaned with cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol.

DVD VCR combo has no power


I found out what the issue was with my Samsung DVD-V5500. It was the rectifier diode on the 15V tap of the high frequency transformer. This is the same issue that someone else with a later model V5600 had talked about. The diode had shorted and behaved like a piece of wire.

Seems to be a bit of weak point in the power supply. The issue can be diagnosed by using a multimeter to measure the resistance between the diode cathode and ground. If the meter is measuring 1 Ohm between the cathode and ground, your diode needs replacing. I just replaced it with a UF4003 diode from Jaycar, which is basically an Ultra Fast 200V 1A diode suitable for switching the high frequency (20-30kHz) output from the transformer.

The diode is located at the rear right hand corner of the board on the output of the power supply section. A picture below shows the new diode between orientated east-west between the large capacitors. The original diode that failed was an SHG2D SHS.

Samsung V5500 DVD VCR combo, blinking led, rest is dead


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

No power


take off the cover of the dvd there is a plastic that has a metal round in shape in the middle .it has two screws at both end take out the screws and lift it up the plastic it is pretty hard to lift up due to the magnet on the metal but with effort it will come up, after it has lift up you can then take out the dvd.take it then to the tech as the dvd is having problem in the power supply good luck.
