Question about Samsung DVD-V5500 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Dvd/Vcr dead Hi there, The model is a bit diffirent from this one. It is the v 5600 combo. I've got the player about 2 months. From day one it is dead. i can hear the video head spinning and that's it. Some tech guy told me it is a faulty under carrage. I tried to play a video tape but only took the cassette as far as it go down, just before the tape itself is extracted to the heads ands then it stops and dead once more. What seems to be the problem. I tried to take it back to the supplier but they won't replace it. They will send it in for repairs and they will cover 30% of the costs and i must pay the balance. What can i do? Please help. Thank you Zavora

Re: Dvd/Vcr dead

If this player was purchased NEW within the last 12mnths, then this unit is still under Samsung's factory warranty. In this case, it should only be taken to a Samsung Authorised service agent for FREE warranty repair. Contact Samsung, for you nearest approved agent.

My DVD/VHS combo remote control no longer activates the unit. I have replaced the batteries (2 times). What should I do next?


Good day. You might need to purchase another remote control so that you can access your dvd / vhs combo. I'm afraid that the remote is already broken due to normal use. You can also try to have a technician to check it for you but i suggest you bring it to a samsung authorized service center. Hope this give you a bit of help. Have a great day.

The manual for my DVD-V3500 says that you can't record from DVD to the VCR. But, can you record from the VCR to a DVD?

In short, no. Not with this unit on its own. No function for recording from or copying to DVDs exists with this brand/model.

A separate DVD recorder is required. I don't know of anyone who records DVDs to tape these days.

You are correct; the manual states clearly you cannot record from the DVD deck in this machine, which is a bit unusual, considering other brands of combos such as LG, SONY and PANASONIC offered an input (which was between channels or could be selected via remote) to allow DVD to VHS recording within the one unit.

I would presume you can connect this combo to the input of a DVD recorder, play a videotape and it will work via cables. DVDs last longer than tapes anyway.
