When trying to play a DVDthey generally won't start. Player says "loading" for long time thensays "this disc cannot be played---check the disc". Following thatplayer may display "play", then in a second, or two, displays "stop" onthe screen. Player may repeat all this several times, then it maysuddenly start to play the DVD. This happens with almost all DVD's. Ican put them in computer DVD playerand they work fine. If I keep trying to restart the player, eventually,after about 10 to 20 tries, it will play the DVD with no problem.
Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.

Someone will have to open the unit to see what is happening---either tape is not loading all the way or when FF or Rewind hit not moving the reels----could be as simple as a belt or a bad drive idler (most use either a rubber wheel or gears to move the tape in Play, FF, and Rewind.
Could be either one the tv or the DVD/VCR player.Take the DVD/VCR player used it with another tv,see if have the same problems happen.If it is the DVD/VCR player dose have this problems,this problems is causes by the DVD/VCR laser eye reader,not worth fixing.The whole new DVD/VCR player only cost like 60 or 70 bucks brand new.If it turn out to be the LCD tv fault,than have very strong case to argument for the Samsung tv corporation for the tv warrenty repair.

853. How To Reset Your Samsung DVD Player
STEP 1. DVD Reset List Samsung DVD
players have a built-in reset procedure that resets the DVD player to the
factory defaults. You can use the reset procedure to reset settings that
don’t work with your TV or to resolve issues such as unit lock up. To run the
reset procedure, you press one or more buttons on the front of the DVD player
and hold them for at least fifteen seconds. The buttons your press depend on
the model you have. Important: For the reset
procedure to work, you must press the buttons on the front of the player, not
on the remote control for the player. Below is a list
of all Samsung DVD players and the buttons to press to run the reset
procedure. DVD511 - Stop
/ Play DVD611 - Stop
/ Play DVD709 - Stop
Many, many other models follow but cannot be listed here because of this site's text limitations.
Problems Player won’t work (locks up) •
Try unplugging the AC power cord and plugging it back in. •
Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON
button while you press and hold the STOP button—wait at least 3 seconds before
you release both of the buttons. You’ll need to set up your menu preferences
because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR’s menus to the factory default settings and also erases the
contents of the Disc Library.
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.
