SOURCE: DVD 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.

SOURCE: doesn't read dvd's

This problem is down to failure of the laser and an only be solved by replacing it. Samsung are aware of this fault but will only offer a free replacement if the unit is still covered by it's warranty.
They do offer a replacement service but charge £94 for it.

75 ohm coax cable generally does not carry 5.1 surround, you may need to see if your cable box has a 5.1 surround capability, the cable company will be able to help you on that .one other thing the receiver you are using (distribution) may need to have the source changed to the one from the cable box ie. fiber optic or coaxial (orange rca plug). red and white from the cable box does not carry 5.1 surround, only stereo. thanks for using fixya!

SOURCE: dvd does not load

some times its because of the CD (it cannot read the CD) all you have to do is try a different range of CD's to see what the prob is if it still doesnt read it may be coz of a scratched CD / Lens!!!!

My harman kardon player will read blurays, however it wont read dvds. Any idea why?


More than likely the lens that read dvd discs has failed. On blu-ray players, there are two (2) optical lens. One reads blu-rays and the other dvd/cds. They are independent of one another.

The most common reason is either a dirty or bad Optical Pickup unit in the player which is what reads the disc, and you will get no disc, cannot read disc etc.

Dvd player will not read dvds


1 The problem is the dvds disc which you are using are not compatible with your system. Check the the regional code at the back of your dvd cover and check if your dvd player can play those dvds. This information is given in the booklet provided with your system.

Disc reading


hi there

long reading time for cds or dvds only means that there might be dust or residues hindering your cd lens to accurately read the data of the cd/dvd. what you can do is try to clean the lens with a cd cleaner.always check the cd/dvd that you insert are clean and fre of dust . if this still wont work and the player still have the long time to read the cd/dvds, my advise is to bring this to a service center and have this checked out.

hope this helps.

I dont think its connected. anyway, make sure DVD is clean and unscratched. If it wont help and these are commercial DVDs, then there is probably something wrong with them. If they are home made DVDs, then it may be that your player doesn't handle them well and you can try to burn it a other dvd format... look in you r manual to find out which format are compatible.. Good luck.
