Samsung dvd players are known for bad spin motors. You may try to clean the laser and see if that changes the disposition of the problem. If there is no change and with the top of the unit off,if you see the pin point of laser on top of the disc, and the disc moves or shivers, the chances are it is a bad spin motor. In most cases, it is not cost effective to replace the motor. If an auxillary line in jackis available , buy a $30 dvd to replace it rather than taking it to a service facility that will charge you the same amount to evaluate it. Scrivitron

Won't Read blank disc!!

I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.
