    Same here. The fan has stopped. Might be due to a overheating. I measured DC voltages from the HD power connector and they are all right. Maybe the DVD bay is broken?

Had a similar problem after loading a suspect dvd (one I had burned myself) Could not do anything - stuck at loading. Don't remember if the fan was running. From what I have read these units are touchy to bad disks (DVD or HDD) If yours has a DVD inserted try this :

  1. Unplug and wait 10 seconds
  2. plug it back in and wait 1 minute. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS!
  3. With the machine still in the standby state, press eject on the REMOTE. It should eject without trying to read the disk.

Good luck. It worked for me.

My samsung dvd-sh855m has no picture, only sound. there is no picture at all so I cannot even set the machine up. When I put a dvd in I can hear it but the screen stays black


Press the 'pscan' button on the front of the recorder 3 times and the picture will come back. This is a little sod as you only need to catch the pscan button once - if your TV doesn't support a progressive scan your picture has gone....

DVD player will not open


try unplugging it for about 2 minutes to clear some memory and try it again. the tray motor may be shot or skipped a tooth on the gear and not hitting the switch. you may need to take the cover off and physically do it.

How to unlock region code for Yamaha-DVD-S1800-DVD-Players


This worked last time I tried it. As with all region hacks you must first ensure that the remote has fresh batteries inside.

1. Switch the DVD S1800 on using either the remote or the front panel button.
2. Open the disc loading drawer and leave it open
3. Using the remote control press the "Clear" button.
4. Use the remote keypad to type in "2580".
5. Now press "Subtitle" on the remote.
6. Close the disc loading drawer.
7. Wait until the player has finished the loading cycle
8. Switch the device off using either the remote or the front panel switch.

When you turn the player back on it should be a region 0 (i.e. multi-region) player.

I hope that this has provided the answer you require, if so all I ask in return is that you remember to rate my answer.

DVDs recorded on HR720 do not play on any other player or PC!


Hi there,

not sure if this will solve your issue. But in order to be able to see the DVD recorded on the HR720 (or typically any other DVD recorder) you need to "lock" it. This is done in the File Manager Menu. The DVD recorder will ask you twice, whether you want to "lock" the disk. Once you have done that it will format the DVD like a normal DVD-Video, meaning it can be played on any regular DVD player. However, once locked you cannot re-open the DVD.
Hope this helps. Otherwise check in the user manual under "recording a DVD" - it is mentioned also there.

Samsung DVD-HR725 DVD Recorder 160GB


I have other problem but I know how to solve the 'load' problem. Just hold on to power on button for 4-10 seconds, the player will turn off and reset itself. Mostly this will solve the problem. Problem most likely due to incompatible disc or the menu selection jump to quickly. Hope this help.

My problem is that my recorder no longer output any sound, just like that!! Any help will be appreciated.

Dvd file system


The first is rather easy. You will have to finish the DVD to get it working. After copying a title, finish the DVD and put in you computer's DVD player. Either the film should start to play or you will be prompted whether you want to show the contents or other options. If either of this happens, you are good to go and you can copy the Video_TS folder which should be visible to your hard drive. Done it several times.
The second solution is something I try to figure out myself but it seems DV in is really IN and not OUT....

Best,
Marty
