Question about Samsung DVD-V1000 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly

I know NOTHING about dvd players and how they work -- mine's about 2-3 years old. Lately, all kinds of problems are happening -- dvds that play fine at the video store won't load in my player; as I'm watching a movie, suddenly the picture will freeze for a few seconds, then continue. Sometimes the picture will completely depixelize. It's driving me nuts! I've used a cleaning disk. I've shot canned air into it. It's getting worse. What can I do to make it stop????

    hmmm ... don't think that's an issue -- I'm not a particularly hitech person -- no "other units" involved. The player sits on a table, by itself, in front of a window. The tv it is attached to is adjacent, on a lower table. That's all there is -- no enclosed spaces. Window is often slightly open, so there is fresh (screened) air, thus overheating shouldn't be an issue. I turn it completely off when I'm not using it. Window is moderately shaded by trees immediately outside, so the sun doesn't pour in. Any other suggestions?

    I have the same problem. Usually if I clean the disk with cleaning solution prior to playing the movie, it will solve the problem. I have this problem mostly with disks I rent.

Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.

    since that doesn't seem to fix it then you will need to manual clean the laser eye. I would suggest taking it to a repair shop to have this done.

    If you wish to attempt this yourself Here is how: remove the cover, if you can see the eye from there then use a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol. Gently, douse the q-tip in alcohol and carefully rub the eye in a circular motion then use the dry end of the q-tip on the eye in the same motion and direction as before.

DVD images freeze at certain points or playback becomes choppy


sounds like you will need to clean laser, there are cleaners you can buy out of walmart for this. Don't know if they work well, I take mine apart and use soft cloth and alcohol then letting dry, works fine for me.

I have an 11 year old Toshiba DVD player. The last 2 times I rented a disk I had problems. Everything seems to be fine through the previews. When the movie starts to play, the screen goes green. The audio...


This is usually an issue with the component cables running to the TV. Remove the cables and retry with different component cables. If this doesn't fix the issue, its a problem with the DVD player itself.

As far as DVD players go, you've done quite well keeping yours going for 11 years. A cheap DVD player at the local big box electronics store here costs about $30, definitely not breaking the bank getting a new one.

My DVD tray will not open, and with no disc inside the display says 'reading' constantly. Any thoughts?


The DVD player in model DRC8295 uses a magnet to pull the Disc tray up into position. You can open up the front disc cover and push down slightly on the Disc tray and then push the open/close button to eject the tray. I had to do this on my unit and therefore I recommed leaving a Disc in it at all times. I leave a "Bad Disc" in mine and it opens/closes with no problems.

Turning on


I second quavuama. I had the same symptoms after my four-year-old "broke" it. He actually figured it out and suggested the fix. He said "Daddy, the little button is stuck..." OK, yeah right, I said. But he pointed to the small auto shut-off button just above the source and setup buttons. When the lid closes the button is pushed down and off goes the picture. Well little four-year-old fingers was fingering the button and it got stuck in the down position. I used a sharp tip to work it back to the "sprung" position. Picture now comes on.

I have this same DVD player and had the same problem. I have recently discovered that when we open the flip top, one of the "joints" that keeps the flip top attached to the player kind of pops out? We had to snap it back into place after opening the DVD player. Our light still does not come on but the player does work. Just a suggestion!
