Question about Samsung DVD-V1000 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Player won't play some of my DVD movies

I watched about 5 videos in a row but it won't play the last 2 newest disks.
It tells me that it is loading, then after a long pause, the screen notice tells me that it is 'Unable to read - disk error"

    I have the same problem and have done just about everything to try to get it to play a new disc. I cleaned the dvd with cleaner and let it dry. I tried different dvds thinking maybe that was the problem. I unpluged it from the wall and then plugged it back in and turned it back on...still gives me the same error message....now what?

    I have the same problem with some DVDs working fine and others just won't load..keep getting message of disc error or something..On mine, I took it apart and adjusted how high the DVD sits above the lazer and that will correct the problem for some discs, but doesn't make all DVDs play..I've had the same problem with 2 different Samsung DVD/VCR players (V1000 and V5500)..bottom line is Samsung just plain makes junk DVD players.

    I've used this machine for five years without a problem; however, late last year, each DVD that I put in starts loading and then finally the unit registers the error message "disc error. unable to read disc."

I have the same problem, tried it on 2 different (functioning) blu-ray players at home with the same result. Both are up to date with latest firmware but will not play this disc. Finally had to just watch the standard-def DVD version until I can solve this.

Some rented discs won't play becauses of scratches and dirt, if other DVD 'S work it is not your player, but if all won't play try a DVD cleaning kit and follow instructions.

If you follow the link below you can download the newest firmware for this Blu-ray player . You need to put this file on a USB drive , Do a reset on the Blu-Ray player and insert the USB drive into the USB port on the player it should then do the update. If it doesnt do it automatically just follow the on screen prompts

My BD530 player doesn't play all movies clearly. Some come cover good others re all snowy


When properly connected to a High Definition display or TV, Blu-Ray Disks (BD) should play crystal clearly. Inserting an old "non-Blu-Ray" disk (or the original "DVD") in the Blu-Ray player will display a comparatively "fuzzy" picture. This is the difference between High Definition and Standard Definition. A "BD player" can not "upgrade" the picture quality on DVDs to that of a BD or High Definition picture.

Rent, purchase or choose Blu-Ray Disks (BD) whenever a choice is offered to view the High Definition version of a movie or video. Selecting the DVD version will provide the lower quality or Standard Definition version of the same movie or video.

Check the covers or disk itself to determine if the movie or video is in DVD or BD format. That will tell you what you can expect for picture quality.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thank you.

Only says loading when started, does nothing


Hi, your problem is the laser lens, it went sour. This device is coded to read only region 1 disks, when U attempt to read other regions disks it will read them once, 2 or 3 times but then... it will stop reading any disk regardless the region they are. Regions codes were implanted on disks to control piracy, so USA has region 1, Mexico 4, Asia I believe is 3 and so on. There are a total of 6 regions worldwide, U have to get disks matching the region U are from or, better solution... get a multi-region DVD player.

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Your DVD player is having a problem reading the disc. This is what is accounting for the pausing and the slow loading times...especially if it plays other movies without hitches. Even if the DVD is cleaned, some scratching on the disc will prevent it from being viewed properly. Blockbuster shoudl give you another disc to try of the same movie if you ask. Also, you can try getting a cleaner for your DVD player to remove dust and help it read discs better.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player


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.
