Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR
HELLO! SHORTLY AFTER PURCHASING MY SAMSUNG DVD+VIDEO COMBO FOR SOME ODD REASON THE DVD PLAYER JUST SUDDENLY STOPPED PLAYING MOVIES. HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS: WHEN I PUT A MOVIE INTO THE DVD PLAYER IT WILL PLAY IT FOR THE FIRST FEW MINUTES AFTER THAT THE SCREEN TURNS GREY AND IT BEGINS TO ROLL/BOUNCE, AND WHEN I TRY TO TAKE OUT THE MOVIE IT WILL NOT OPEN UP AND IF I TRY TO PLAY A VIDEO WITH THE DVD STILL IN THERE "IT WILL PLAY", BUT THE SCREEN ROLLS AND BOUNCES THE WHOLE TIME. I HAVE TO LET THE MACHINE COOL FOR AN ENTIRE 24 HOURS; PLUG IT BACK IN, AND THEN REMOVE THE DISC. IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THIS PROBLEM AND IT'S SOLUTION. THANKYOU!
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
