sounds like you need to clean the laser lens. Try using a disc cleaner first and if that dosent work then take aprt and find the laser lens, take a clean q-tip and put a little alcohol and swab the lens very carefully Good luck

My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

This problem is down to failure of the laser and an only be solved by replacing it. Samsung are aware of this fault but will only offer a free replacement if the unit is still covered by it's warranty.
They do offer a replacement service but charge £94 for it.

Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).

I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.

If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.

Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.

In Summary:

Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units

1) Physical fault
use a blower and clean the internal parts by blowing

2) fault in the lense section of the player

Dvd in player but display says no disk


Check the regional code of the DVD you want to play. It is at the back of the DVD cover. It should be compatible with the regional code which your DVD player can play. If they are not tallying the disc will not be read

The laser lens could just be dirty, or it could be on it's last leg.
I'd recommend cleaning the laser first, laser replacement would cost more then the machine itself is worth.

I have got exactly the same problem. Thought I had found some discs that worked as the first one formatted, since then all have come up with that crappy error protection message. Samsung really should sort this out.
