Re: Door won't open
Those kind of problems just require that the door open one time. However, to do that you will have to take the cover off the player with the power off of course. Once you have take the cover off ( only a few screws ) you will be able to see the disk player well enough to see the back part of it. There are two ways you can do this, first, is to power the player back on, press the power button on. Then when you press the open door button or use your remote whichever, have your finger on the very back end of the carriage that holds the disk and push to the front gently as it tries to open the door, you will know because you will hear a short click from a relay. If you cannot open it after a couple of tries then power it off again and unplug it. There are only four screws that hold the disc player part in itself. Take those four screw off so you can lift it far enough to get to the bottom front of the disc player. Once you can do that, without the power on, there is a white neoprene part that moves from left to right or right to left to open and close the door. You will be able to see it and you can manually slide the part to whichever side it will move and that will open the door. You can gently push the door back closed and open it again a few times. Then place the disc player back in place with the screws in and power it up and open the door with the remote or button. It should open. What happens is that depending on how long the player has set on a wharehouse shelf or just around even if it is new, the lithium grease that they use for the moving parts dries out and it needs a little push and use to work properly again. Let me know if I can help in any other way.

I called Samsung who suggested pushinhg the play button on the panel and the power button on the remote together. "No disc" eventually showed on the screen and pushing the open/close door button worked.
However, my remote wouldn't work, even after changing batteries.
The machine did play. Unfortunately, later that night I tried another DVD and it locked up again. The next day I tried the above 2-step and it worked again, so maybe the other DVD caused trouble. But I cant get my remote to do anything except the 2-step listed above.
try to re start the power first to reset the supply in which the door unable to open and then push the open/close button to open the door. if still won't open maybe their is an stuck up at mechanical part, so turn off the player then use a Phillip screw driver to loosen the screws and to remove the cover of the DVD player .you can now access the disc mechanical assembly of your DVD player, remove the CD first and then check if the plastic gear is mis aligned or the the drive belt is broken.much better if you can apply silicon grease in plastic gear for smooth operation.then make sure the open/close button is ok, good luck and good day.
Try this, look for a small hole on the front of the unit.Use a pin and press in to see if it opens,ejects the disk .If no hole try seeing if you can press ,lift,pull at the door/slot while pressing the open door/eject either on the unit or with the remote control.It sounds like you may have a bad CD/DVD (copy) that the unit is trying to read/load but can't. keep trying to eject CD/DVD if this doesn't work unplug unit for 5 minutes,try open door again do press and hold open repeatedly I know it's frustrating but it just may eject.Don't use this recorder for playback of DVD buy a $30 DVD player the cheaper the better they play anything.GOOD LUCK
Very sorry for your loss. As always the first step is to make sure the player is connected to the wall outlet and turned on.
To put a disk in the DVD you should push the "Eject" button to open and close the tray it looks like a home(a triangle over a dash) on the front side of the box down left corner of the tray. You have the same button on the remote marked "Eject". Push either once, put the disk with the shiny side down on the tray and push the Eject button again to feed the tray back into the player. Usually the disk starts automatically and you will see a menu on the TV with alternatives like "Play the movie", "Setup", "Scenes",... you may highlight the "Play the movie" alternative, using "Up", "Down", "Left" and "Right" and then press the "OK" button. Or just push the "Play" button either on the box or the remote control. If you click "Here "you can download the manual in PDF form. To open it in your pc you'll need "Adobe Acrobat Reader" (or any other PDF reader) installed.
I will gladly answer your questions
Check first to make sure there are not Two (2) disks in the tray. The disk may not be seated completely in the tray. The disk may be upside down. Try a different disk. If it plays properly, the disk in question is probably bad
I have had some luck in unplugging the machine for five or ten and then trying again. I have spent five to ten minutes trying to get the darn thing to spit out the disk and it refuses. Unplugging either gives me time to cool off or it helps the machine :)
