Question about Samsung DVD-V3500 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

I have a Samsung DVD/VCR V3500 25W combo player. As of a few days ago, it will no longer play _any_ DVD movies. I rent lots of movies from the RedBox Kiosk and have had no trouble until recently. I tried cleaning the DVD as per the instructions on the container the movie comes in but it didn't help. The DVD will start to play and then quit at one of the info screens and go no further. Is there a fix for this please?

    One thing I forgot to say in my previous post is the VCR part works perfect with no problems at all. I'd sure like to get the DVD part working again. It's worked great until a few days ago as I said before.

    I honestly do not know how old the Samsung combo player is. I got it from ebay. The model # on the back is DVD-V3500 25W. I have had it for about 4 or 5 months. I went out today and bought a DVD/CD lens cleaning disk but it did no good. When I put the DVD/CD disk into the DVD player, it brought up info for cleaning a CD and said nothing about DVD? It did work well in my computer. Any suggestion are appreciated. Is there any kind of lens cleaning disk that is for a DVD player only?

    My Samsung DVD/VHS combo player no longer plays any dvds. Even if they are brand new. The VHS works fine.

    I have the same problem. My VCR player still works, but all of a sudden my DVD player will not work. It will try to load the DVD, and then it says that it cannot play it. I tried cleaning it and that didn't work either. Can anyone please help me fix this problem?

I need to know how old your Samsung is and then I think I know what the problem is.

Samsung DVD-V3650 Combo Player ejects most videotapes without playing them


You can only compensate for minor scratches. As for the vcr side the rollers could be dirty or the brake worn out. The tensioner may be too sensitive as well. Basically the mechanism probably needs servicing.

Help, my Sony S360 BD play says "invalid" to two


The chances of getting 2 bad rentals in a row are very slim, but not impossible. If your player plays all other DVDs fine, then my money's on the Redbox DVDs being bad, or even fake (people have been known to keep the actual movies, and return fakes to the machine).

MY SAMSUNG DVD+VIDEO COMBO V4600


What you're describing is a common problem for this particular unit, a bad spindle motor. In some cases the motor can be removed by the tech and torn down for cleaning.. But in a high percentage of cases shops just replace the motor... What's happening, as your symptom appears the spindle motor is beginning to spin irratically. In turn the picture can sometimes just drop out. In others it simply folds over and is unwatchable. The spindle motor is not too expensive.. Good Luck Bill
