Question about Samsung HTDM150 System

Samsung dvd player ht-dm150 (watching movies)

I can watch part of the dvd on my dvd player, mostly the previews, but once that is over, my dvd player stops, and when I also press the menu button. This happens on numerous dvd movies. When playing the movie, If I put it on pause for a long time, the dvd player would freeze up on me. Could the problem be the optic laser or the tracking system motor?

It is most likely that the laser is not a problem because it can read the first part of the disk. If the laser is defective, it willn ot recognize the disk. The problem is probably the seek mechanism. It can only access the inner tracks but cannot read the tracks further from the center.

My samsung HT TQ22 dvd player doesn't play dvd's."DISC ERROR" appears each time I try to watch a movie. Any info on how to fix this problem would be greatly appreciated.

Take the top case off the unit, power on, and place a dvd into disc tray. Press the play button and see what happens. It should find the dvd, clamp it in the reader and then spin it at high speed. If it does this and still says disc error, then the read head is bad. If it does not spin at high speed, then the epindle motor is bad. This is the more common error with Samsungs. Repair shop time.

Samsung ht-tx72 Issue

GEnerally speaking that behavior suggests that the video signal is being lost for a second and returns. The easiest thing to try is to replace the connection cable (video). A bad connection there could cause this although moving the cable should make this happen at will. Check the DVd player on another TV if possible. If hte player is the cause, the "new" TV should show the same symptoms.

The only other possibility is that the DVD player is having a problem generating the video signal. This could be because the disc is not being read correctly (I would expect the sound to be effected as well) or the video processing section of hte DVD player is defective. This wil be a bit more difficult to find.

Can you try the cable and other TV and update this?

Does it happen with all discs? Maybe clean the discs because I notice the player is pretty sensitive

No it does not. It will upscale regular DVD's to HD resolution, but that's an electronic trick. You'll need to buy a BluRay player to watch high definition discs.

The HD-DVD standard has been abandoned by Toshiba, so the Sony players are the one's to look for.

DVD Player Problems

Me three, same thing, reads 'no disc' or just won't play it. I have found that it happens more frequently on rental DVD's and that running a cleaner cd through several times helps but eventually that will even stop working. No idea what the problem is
