Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR
Haven't used this much, but recently this machine won't play DVD's. Screen message reads: This disk cannot be played. Please check the disk. I have tried at least ten different disks with the same error message on each one. These same disks do work fine on my computer. Outside of this, the machine seems to operate (slot opens and closes, screen turns on with remote.) Appreciate any advice. Thanks.
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.

We have had the same problem with our Samsung DVD/VCR. We recently pruchased a DVD movie, and when we tried to play it, we got the message:
This disk cannot be played.
Please check the disk.
We tried playing other DVD movies that we have watched on the same machine in the past, and none of them worked. Oddly enough, Disk 2 of the new movie (which unfortunately contains only "Extras", not the movie itself) does play on the machine. I recommend that people NOT buy any Samsung DVD players, as they appear to be defective.
