2 Answers

DVD playback I've only had this 6 months and last week it suddenly stopped playing any dvds (message appears saying unable to read disc please check disc) I cant even use a dvd cleaner as the same thing happens. I've tried resetting the machine and keeping it turned off for a while before use but the problems still persist. Can anyone help please???

Re: DVD playback

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

Not recognizing DVD player

i would say for some reason your dvd player is not compatible from now on with that brand of blank dvd!

get the firmware update from the brand website all you do is download the file burnit on a cd and put it in the dvd player should fix most and eventual problems

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.

Sony dvp-ns425p will play regular CD, but won't play any DVD

just open the player (4-6 screws) and clean the lens. I had a similar problem (plays VCD, CD but no DVD - tray will open immediately). It worked afterwards
