Have you tried pulling the plug for a minute? Also try the eject button directly from standby.

    Thank you for the suggestion. I have powered down everything and waited ten minutes. This didn't do anything. I have also tried the eject button from standby. I've even started trying random button combinations and holding them down for 10 seconds!

    I don't understand why, but only connecting power to the DVD player and leaving the TV disconnected from the player seemed to do the trick!

My Samsung smart tv & my dvd/bluray player recorder I bought at same time. Haven't had blurays til now & wont play at all. Rental ones did now I've bought my own & they don't play!Not tech minded.HELP

Each DVD player is assigned a code for the region in which it's sold. For example USA/Canada are Region 1 players. DVD players will refuse to play discs not coded for its specific region. In effect, this means that a DVD purchased in one country is normally unreadable on a DVD player bought in another region.

If your rental DVDs work in the player then there is nothing wrong with your DVD player. If you have purchased DVDs that do not work the problem is with the DVDs you have, not with the DVD player.

I have a smart Samsung bluray DVD player, the remote that come with player doesn't work so I set up a universal remote for the Bluray player. How do I use my android phone as the control?

Your player must support this and have network connection. Then download app from play store (samsung remote). Player and phone both must be on the same network (e.g. wlan) then if your player supports this it should show up on the device list in your phone.

My samsung BluRay Player BD D5700 will play DVD's but will not play BluRay DVD's.

I had a similar issue. Try resetting your resolution. By default it should be at the highest level. I reset mine to 1080i and now the BluRays will play.

My TV is a few years old, I think it was bogging down because it was getting too much information from the player, but that's just a guess.

I just finished running the cleaning disk and the player runs and says loading but dvd will not play. No picture on the tv?

Some dvd players simply will not play copies of dvd's, or ones made on a computer.

Another thing to try, is to unload/eject any discs, turn off the player, unplug from AC socket for a minute or two.....and then re-plug, and turn it on, load a disc, and see what happens. Hope this helps.

you may have to open the unit up and manually turn the unload and load gear to eject the DVD from the carriage. The load and unload gear is a round gear located under the DVD carriage and is attached to the load and unload motor
