Question about Samsung DVD-VR330 VCR and DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Won't accept any dvd disc

I put in a blank dvd and on the screen it shows "NO DISC". It will not accept any disc not even a cleaner for the dvd. I have tried a lot of things but nothing works. Samsung told me to unplug the machine without a disc in it. Then plug it back in and press on the machine both the up & down channel buttons for 15 seconds and either the drawer will open or the machine will turn off. Well, the drawer opened but it still would not recognize a disc. Every time I put a disc in the machine it says "NO DISC".Please help!

It sounds like the Laser went out. Buy a new dvd player

    I have this same problem. I'm pretty sure it's the laser, HOWEVER I am not sure that it is necessary to throw it out and "buy a new dvd player". I work in repairing lasers in game consoles and I think this is the same thing. I am currently trying to source a replacement laser, but no luck. Because it is a recorder it is not a normal laser, I might be able to replace it with another samsung recorder laser...

My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc


Hello,
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
Regards, Tony

Hello,

The first and foremost thing is that you verify that your dvd recorder is compatible with DVD+R discs and not just DVD-R.. This can cause the problem's you are having with it, you can check the manual to see what media types it accepts.

Every disc is a "Bad Disc".


This is due to faulty DVD lens/head. Try cleaning it with DVD/CD hed cleaning CDs.If still the problem persists, contact near by service center for replacing the faulty Lens.
