Question about Samsung DVD-AR650

1 Answer

Samsung DVD player/recorder

Recently I've had trouble while one touch record mode. The trouble is the unit freezes up, I cant 'stop', I cant 'eject' I need to get up & unplug the unit from the wall and reset it. This eliminates the recording to that point & the disc is ruined. anyone ever heard of this before and is there a solution ?

I have seen it as a heat issue and a firmware issue. Depnding on the age, Samsung might update the firmware to correct this problem. Can also occur with cheapo media.

I have a Crosley CR248 CD Recorder and mistakenly put a blank DVD in the CD recorder and it will not eject. The unit is "locked" in "CD loading " mode and will not allow any other...

look for a small hole near the front of the cd drawer, use a pen to push the small button inside, and the disk should come out. some cd recorders don't have the button, but they are inside, you need to open the case to get at it and the push it to eject the cd/dvd one other thing you might try, is to unplug the unit from the wall (power) and then plug it back in, when it first powers up, push the eject button and it may come out then

Philips 3360H - can't eject DVD

Try this..turn it off, unplug it for a min or two, then plug it back in. THEN...if the power stays off...hit the eject/open/close button on the panel.

Sometimes this activates the eject mode without turning on the unit. IF NOT, try the remote eject without turning on the unit.

Disc won't eject, stays in "RECOVER" mode

look on the face of the machine, near the dvd slot. what you are looking for is a tiny hole, the size of a pencil lead. some players, not all, have this manual release. If you are fortunate enough to have one of these little holes straighten out a small paper clip and use it as a wire to insert in the hole and release your dvd.

This used to happen periodically with my unit. I would just unplug it and then whatever was stuck would pop out.

Endless loop

Mine did this (on a Ram disk) but I was able to push eject before the dvd tried to read the disk. I had unplugged it overnight, then once plugged back in immediately pushed eject. Once the disk was out it stopped going into recovery mode.
Hope it helps. Good Luck.

If both decks have a disc or tape in it , the unit shut down because of a power supply glitch or a mechanical trouble shut down the system control system. One way to possibly get them out is unplug unit for a few hours or overnight even better. Before you plug back in press the eject button and hold it in while you plug it in. Dont let go untill the tape comes out. Now if it comes out then unplug the unit anf replug back in and wait a few secs. to let it reset and do its thing. then see if it will turn on and try to eject the disc. if this dosent work then its a power supply problem and its going to need serviceing unless you know your way aroundservo controls and power supplys . Remeber always unplug these units as they do have voltages on the primary side of the transformer that can bite ya. Good Luck
