Question about Denon DVD-9000 DVD Player

1 Answer

Trouble reading discs

This is a used machine bought on ebay. Problem has been ongoing but got worse this week. It reads occasional disc first time. Often I must reload multiple times to read. Sometimes opens without reading. There is a whirring sound, but not steady. Sometimes it gets jerky with playback when I can get it to read. Once it starts to read it seems to work O.K. until next time I use it. Tried blowing compressed air to clean dust. Reset all settings to factory default (it worked for a day). Any suggestions?

Re: Trouble reading discs

Well compressed air is ok to a certain extent. But sounds like you need one on one with laser. Open up and clean with soft cloth and alcohol, I found the best way to do it. let dry and try again. Hope this helps

Since a week ago, the player doen't want to read bluray discs. It reads the dvds but not the bluray discs.

The DVDs use red light, and the blue rays use blue light, 2 systems. Have you tried a cleaning disc?

Disc not being read - reading reading reading

That looks like a lens problem, when there is a fault of different kind you usually get an error message.

If you use a CD cleaner , use a good one , the $2 CD cleaners do not work, you need a kit with cleaning solution. Check here.

Run the CD cleaner a couple of times more , and see if this work.

If it does not work , the unit must be taken apart, and the lens cleaned directly with a cotton stub and cleaning solution, or isopropyl alcohol.

If the lens is defective, then the lens pick up should be replaced.

Won't Read blank disc!!

I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.

Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.

Won't Read blank disc!!

Ok, I talked to Samsung support again today, and they confirm that the firmware update should correct the problem of incompatibility with 1-16x discs. They are going to mail a CD with the firmware update to me, at no charge. They were not, however, able to tell me if the file I had originally downloaded from their website was the same as what will be coming on the CD. Sheesh!!

If I can determine that they are the same file, I will post such info. here later. Otherwise, I would advise contacting Samsung support and requesting a disc.
