Question about Samsung HT-DS610 System

1 Answer

Unable to read/play DVDs

My HT-DS610 has become selective in the movies that it will load and playback. At first I could watch all my movies and then over the corse of a couple of weeks, it started to not load them. I know it's not the DVDs because I can still watch them through my PS2. I've searched Samsungs website, but they don't have a thing about this model other than the user manual. Is anyone else having or had this problem and is there a way to correct it other than using a sledge hammer to vent my frustration and purchasing a different brand of home theater??

    Yes, my friend has had this same problem from day one. not just with DVD's but CD's as well. It will start to play then just stop or start to skip, -or- it will not track at all. -Along with that for some reason the system just shuts down for no reason at all. It just turns it'self off.

    Since this has happend from day one it can't be the laser going bad, and he has been using a lens cleaner with it so there should not be any dust on the lens eaither.

    HT-DS610B - Same problem w/selective DVD's for about year. Latest ones Pirates of Carribean & 3:10 to Yuma. Sometimes only gives blue screen w/ Disc Error, after playing w/remote buttons have gotten as far as the first 4 minutes but has several short freezes, screen skips and shows the english subtitles at the bottom of the screen. All these DVDs played fine in my Pioneer DMR-ES40V and my old Pioneer DV-434 (although I have to grab the tray & hold it open to drop in the DVD). Done the cleaner bit but no luck and it has only had little use until this winter.

    Same symptoms: difficulty reading DVDs eventually progressed to no DVD operability, even though audio CDs work on most occasions.



    The stated solution of lens cleaning besg a question:

    if optics are effectively cleaned but symptoms persist, is it really acceptable that a laser diode in such a device be so near MBTF in regular use? I don't think so.

    What type of discs are playable on this DVD player? DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW or DVD+RW?



    The instruction book doesn't say and sometimes I get "No Disc."

You may have a dirty laser lens on the slider assembly. If you clean this little lens, and the problem still happens, it is an indication that the laser is getting weak and it may be time to start looking around for a new player/recorder. Good Luck

I have a PS2 Slim and it won't read discs. Every time I put a disc in it won't spin it will just go to the screen that says browser and system configuration. Please help me!!


Causes:

1. DVD has lots of scratches
2. Regional Settings
3. Incorrect DVD settings for PS2
4. No/Incorrect Disc

Remedy:

1. Clean your discs well and avoid incurring scratches. Place it in
its box after use.
2. DVDs have encoding. They are encoded by regions. Thus, you cannot
play region 2 DVDs on a US Playstation mainly because the US
Playstation 2 can only read DVD that are encoded in Region 1 or
those DVDs that are encoded for all regions. Again, US PS2 are
region 1 capable. Japanese PS2s are Region 2 Capable.
3. There are a number of settings for the DVD playback of your
PS2. First is the rating of the DVD. If you want to watch a
rated R movie, make sure your PS2 allows viewing of R movies.
You'll be setting this during the first time that you'll be
watching a DVD. It's just the same as real theaters. It is also
protected with password so you need the person who set it up
the first time in order to bypass the rating settings.
4. Put in a DVD first and make sure that it is a Movie. And,
check #2.

Samsung HT-X50 DVD Audio Problem


I had this same problem and checked all of my cables and wires. Come to find out one of the wires that connected to the central audio speaker (the one that the audio track comes from) was unplugged. I plugged it in and that fixed it! My audio track is back! So make sure that all of the speaker cables are properly connected! That might be the source of your troubles!

Will Not Play DVD Movies


What program are you trying to use to play these movies? Windows Media Player will play some, but not others - I highly recommend Nero, WinDVD, PowerDVD or similar programs.

Question - are you able to browse the contents of the DVD drive in My Computer? Even if the movie doesn't play, you can still see the files (there will be an AUDIO_TS and a VIDEO_TS folder, which a bunch of VOB files under the latter).

If you can see the files, but movies won't play, you just need the appropriate DVD playback software.

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
