Question about Samsung DVD-R130 DVD Recorder

DVD-R130 Says "Disk is unreadable"

Turns on, just doesn't load the disk. I got a cleaning disk, didn't work. I took the lid off and blew air from a can (compressed air) at the read laser head. It worked for a while but now it doesn't help at all.

    Insert any DVD disc (blank or copied) , the player won't load, just shows loading and loading for sometime and ejects out the disc, saying this disc cannot be played.

    Thanks for all the tips, I guess I was lucky this time, I called samsung and they told me that they will send me a new one since the unit I purchased was still under one year warranty.

I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.

2000 650 v star. rear cylinder doesn't catch and run until front reaches 1500 or so rpm. took to dealer, and after arm and 2 legs, still doesn't run well. replaced plugs (twice). haven't...

So check the compression. The valves could be set wrong or are not sealing well. You didn't mention any smoking so the piston rings should be okay. The most likely cause of the problem is a pin hole in the carb diaphragm or a carb needing to be cleaned. Go ahead and drain the float bowl then remove it. Now clean the carb with spray carb cleaner. With a bit of luck the cleaning alone will fix the problem. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

"No Read" display...99% of the times.

OK. Since the laser cleaning disk could not be read I used a can of air (used for air brushing) and blew air into the disk opening. I thought I might clean any dust that may have collected around any parts that needed to be cleaned. This seemed to have worked. It is also possible that dust accumulated in an area that would not allow the disk to line up properly. This could explain why it worked sometimes. If this continues as a problem I will use the EZ17 only as a tuner for my EZ55.

Clean ink path to head on cyan color.

I had this problem and took a can of compressed air and blew it through the ink receiver (take the cartridge out) I had no yellow, 15 cleanings did nothing, tried this and it works like new. You have to use the long red tube that comes with the compressed air can, and place some pressure on the end of the ink receiver hole before you give it a blow of air.. Try that, give it a few more manual cleanings, mine worked great!

Two cheap and easy fixes I can think of that MIGHT help, short of opening the unit, would be to get a can of compressed air, and spray around the fan area, and the disc bay. also use a clean swab dipped in alcohol, and gently clean the laser lens
