Question about Samsung DVD-VR357

1 Answer

VR357 is froze up

None of the buttons on the unit work. in order to get it powered down or to eject the drive you have to use the remote and after u put in a disc it says that it cannot play the disc.

I unplug from the wall and plug back in and it goes right back to the same "powered on" state but nothing will play nor will any of the buttons work on the front of the unit.

Try resetting the unit.

Press and hold FF and RW on the player (not the remote).

HOW do i open Remote Control for recorder, AKB35912904. It is not working.


Try code scanning with a universal remote. My favorite are directv and comcast. directv is mute + select, then 9912, then power, then channel up until the unit powers with the remote, then push select. If you miss the code, you can channel down and back up. Good luck.
Eject button may be any button on the remote, just mash buttons while the unit is on.

RCA DRC-285 DVD Player won't respond


hi, 2 things usually cause this kind of behaviour 1-the dvd+r have been burnt at a high speed 2-the dvd player itself is a bit old when you burn your dvd+R always burn them at a lower speed lowest if possible it'll take longer but it's well worth it and you wouldn't have a problem playing them back

Tip

Force Eject


If a disc gets stuck in the recorder, there a few steps to try before the problem becomes service-related:

1. Power the unit off (so it shows the clock), then simply press the Open/Close button. The unit should power on and attempt to eject the disc.
2. If the above doesn't work - power it off again, then press and hold the STOP and CH UP button on the recorder itself together and hold them down until the unit powers up. This is called a force eject. If this doesn't work (usually if it's not going to work the recorder will simply come on momentarily then loop back into "bye" and go back to the clock), there is one last method to try.
3. Unplug the unit for 30 seconds. Press and hold the same buttons as above as you plug it in. After it performs the self-check "ooooo" across the screen it should do the force eject. If not, the unit requires service to be repaired and possibly the drive replaced.

Why won't the Blu-ray player power up, with either remote or direct input?


Your eject drive is locked up and Your disc will have to be removed manually. It's Blu-Ray Up-Grade time. Good Luck.

Dvd player will not open disc, display lock


Sound like it either has one or two problems, the door is stuck and or the door eject motor has failed. Look in the front to the player for a small paperclip like hole, and use a paper clip to manual eject the and engage the loading mechanism usually located under the door for most cases. Check you manuals troubleshooting section for manually ejecting a CD..

Need to reset samsung dvd vr357


With the unit on, hold down the FFW and RW buttons TOGETHER. Do this in front of the unit, NOT ON THE REMOTE CONTROL.

The unit should either open the tray or say REST OK on the front panel.


Hope this helps!!

Sampo DVE-611 apparently powers up from front panel switch (w/red light) LCD display, etc. No other buttons work, incl. eject. Remote completely unresponsive. Unit shuts down about 10 sec. later. Anyone...


After several power ups, the front panel buttons eventually "woke up". Replaced remote, and everything's working fine. Not sure why the front panel was temporarily unresponsive.

Pre-recorded dvd won't eject/entire system frozen


Try unplugging the machine so it will reset itself. Then plug it back in. That has worked for me in the past.

I have had that problem in the past and I just pushed the DVD or the VHS button at the top of the remote. Sometimes when it is in a different mode you can get the menu but can't scroll.

Hi Barb22,

Sounds faulty to me, I'd take it back to the store and get a replacement. However, I guess you want that DVD out first? I'm not sure this will work because the units logic board is mostly likely faulty and will prevent the DVD transport from opening. Unplug the unit and press the eject button, keeping it pressed plug the unit back in. If the unit does not come on then press the power button too. If the unit starts to open release the button immediately. It's unlikely to eject, but you might get lucky.

Sorry I can't be of much further help.

Regards,

Spare head 2
