Fan doesn't turn off in standby

Hi everyone

I have recently bought a used (6 month old) Samsung DVD-HR735 but have noticed a wierd issue with the fan not turning off when I put the unit into standby. According to the manual (and common sense), the fan should only run while the recorder is switched on. It continues to run for hours afterwards. However, if I unplug the mains power from the unit and reconnect it, it'll go into standby with the fan off until I turn it on and off again next time.

Please help me with this issue. Is there a fix, is this normal behaviour, or should I return it to the guy I bought it from?

My samsung dvd hr753 will not tune to stations? Our region recently switched to digital so we no longer have analogue signals. Could this be the problem?

Yes this is your problem that you no longer receive an Analogue Signal.

This unit doesn't contain a Digital Freeview Tuner so you will need to purchase some sort of External Digital Freeview Box to connect to this unit to enable you to continue recording on it.

Hi getting an error message FANCHK - which is fan check - I understand - how is the best way to fix this?

If you notice at the back of the BD Player there is a small fan. Sometimes dust accumulates on the blades and bearings and makes it difficult for the fan to start. Disconnected the mains power cable and remove the top cover for the BD player. Now take an old tooth brush and clean the fan blades, with out placing the top cover try powering up the BD player. See if the fan works , if not have it replaced.

Won't Read blank disc!!

I my DVD-HR735 wont recognise any discs at times, and is getting worse. I've now discovered (out of frustration) that if I tip the front up to between 30-45 degrees, it will play all the discs it says were unreadable. I've started jamming three dvd boxes under the front of the machine when i want to play dvds.

DAV3102 not enough volume

I have a DAV 3101 and the sound level is much better if the optical input is used. If you use other then supplied speakers you can blow the unit up. It uses 50uF electrolytic capacitors inside the front speakers (3) TO SAVE SPACE IN THE MAIN BOX. However, my unit will shut itself off. Standby light flashes and won't turn on until line cord power is reset over nite. Too bad Oritron doesn't support their products. Their web site is poor. I couldn't find an authorized repair service. Buyer beware! Tom H
