SOURCE: 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.

Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).

I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.

If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.

Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.

In Summary:

Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units

Persario r4000 won't read software cds


tada ! a compaq from the past. OMG runs XP right?
12 year old LT.
this topic is very complex.
first off no OS stated, opr. sys? XP
answering for XP. the dead OS.
No Optical drive label stated, vast models used and sold. for 12 years.
First off Ill say your XP drivers are bad, or the XP is infected as all are.
no photos presented of your Compaq install disks
so i can see then and read them with my eyes,
to know exactly what is there. wow.
if you cant read them in XP
that means XP is messed up or the drive is bad or the disk is bad.
so boot the disk using the BIOS.
ever use BIOS , it tells you how do that at every boot on the screen , like"hit F2 to enter bios setup)"
or some hot key, varies by year, mine is ESC.
if the disk boots and runs, Compaq, HP or Microsoft
then the DISK is ok and the PC is ok and the DVD drive is ok, leaving what, bad XP.

is XP fully updated to SP3?
XP has always had difficulty with optical drives.
not only that XP shut down support
so if you try to install MS drivers for this DVD drive how can it? XP is DEAD now.
ever go in to device manager and do search for missing devices, and be online doing that,
but wait , its now DEAD at MS this feature.

why not just get PC that has w7 on it
and end all this misery
$20 fix , buy a used PC that is not 12 old.
you want a PC nearer than year,2009 with a w7 COA sticker on the bottom. and win !

see cheap pc here far better....

My portable dvd player will not read any dvds


  • I would give it a good cleaning with a disk player cleaning. Those disks have little bristles on them that "sweep" the lens and clean it real well. Remember that if the lens is so dirty that it won't play any DVD you may need to run that cleaner disk a few times to get the lens back to normal working condition.
  • A lens cleaner disk should be ran one time a week to avoid problems with playing disks be it CD or DVD or Computer.
  • Sometimes players go bad so keep in mind this could be the problem as well but I have had the DVD player in my garage get so dirty I had to clean it a few times to get it to work normal.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.
Regards, Tony

When i try to play lord of the rings ( blu-ray ) on my acer aspire 5920g it wont work. it says i need a importante update and asks if i want to update it now. when i push yes nothing happens and i get the...


Is your DVD a Blueray or Just a DVD.
You can play a DVD on a blueray but the blueray will not give a good performace on a DVD. So since you are playing blueray on DVD, your computer is seeing machine code while playing and sees that the code needs updating, but doesn't know what to upgrade. And you can't change the software to a blueray because it is the laser in the machine that reads what is on the disc, not windows... but the output is read by windows Media

Newer BR disks are in an different format. If you can't view them then either you need a new BR unit or you need to upgrade the firmware of the one you have - if this is possible.

We have a sony bdp 300 DVD. We updated the firmware several months ago and all the movies worked fine. However, now it will play just fine during the previews but when we play the movie, there is no audio....


Hi

This certainly looks like a potential firmware issue especially if the Audio is there on the previews. There are reports also of recent firmware updates causing problems on some other Sony BDP units.

You might want to try a Blueray cleaning disk which you can purchase from any good Audio store first to ensure there is not a problem with dirt on the lens that may be causing this. Simply insert and play like a normal disk and it provides a cleansing action to the lens.

Otherwise my advice is to contact Sony directly to discuss the matter and find out if there have been any recent firmware issues.

The most recent update for your unit is firmware version 4.9 and this was released on 12th June 2009

The support phone number for Sony Blueray Players is 239-768-7547

Hope this helps. Please do rate this answer. Many Thanks.

Can Bluray be played on this DVD machine?


You can only play blue ray format on a blueray reader. Your recorder/player requires the proper laser and programing to decode large quantities of data. Your manufacturer should clearly state whether it plays blueray fomat.

Hello?????????! Where have you been living these last five years?? Under a rock in Podunk, Iowa?? Remember when VHS was duking it out with Betamax back in the 1980s? VHS eventually won in 1988. Now it is the 21st century and BlueRay and HD-DVD just concluded their war for supremacy of the new recording/viewing format.
In other words, your HD DVD will not play on your DVD machine. You can either stick with DVDs or buy a new machine. Read the paper; listen to talk radio, listen to a podcast; BE INFORMED.

Blu ray disc


BlueRay is a new high capacity disk storage media system. It has a much greater capacity than any of the other systems.

The blue laser light is of a much narrower beam width and higher speed computing technology, it is possible to now have a much greater capacity for data speed handling and data capacity.

All the new High Definition movies are coming out on BlueRay disks. To play these disks, a BlueRay player will be necessary.

The technology is moving at a faster rate all the time. In about five years, there is a newer system coming out that will even be ahead of the BlueRay. They are working on a new generation high speed plug-in memory modules at the consumer level. These modules will have their own full function microcontroler built in. The data will be using internal fiber optical pathways instead of metal conductive pathways. These will be much farther ahead than anything we have now.
