    dvd disc will not play

  • Anonymous Dec 23, 2007

    It is not possible to load any DVD's into the machine. It just says loading and then after about 30 seconds goes to "set up" and locks up. Tried factory reset etc. but can't get anywhere.

This is happening to me for the second time on the same unit. The first time, I brougt it back to the store and the GeekSquad took the cover off while I was there to watch. He demonstrated that when inserting the DVD it would try to load, but the DVD would not spin. The tech manually spun the DVD in clock-wise direction and the DVD "caught on" and the DVD loaded successfully.

This was not the recommended approach for loading DVDs, and it did not make loading start to work again (except by manually spinning the DVD again). Also note that this situation seems to "degrade", not improve over time.

Fortunately, the first time I was able to get the unit fixed under warranty ... I am not sure what I am going to do about it this time.

I hope this helps some of you out there experiencing the same problem.

Make sure you are using the right disk IE, DVD-R or DVD+R. Most Newer DVD player's will play DVD-R but very few play DVD+R

Samsung DVD-VR320 DVD wont record and shows EC0509

Try cleaning the lens. A commercial lens cleaner should do the job, but if not, contact me again, and I'll try to help you clean it manually

I have a Samsung dvd-r136 will not play any dvd. On screen it says disc not recognised check disc. I have cleaned with dvd lens cleaner but made no difference

I also have a Samsung r136 but have rarely used the DVD player. It went past the warranty and has given up the ghost. It will take discs in but I just get a spinning sound and it won't play anything For a while if I reloaded the tray it would work on perhaps the fifth, sixth, then tenth etc. time. Now it's shagged and won't recognise any disc I put in. Anyone got a suggestion?

Samsung DVD-R135 / R136 - Will not load blank discs

Hello, First be sure your using the correct disc DVD+ or DVD- RW etc.

I would recomend using high quality discs as players/recorders are very picky about cheap media. Try using Imation name brand discs. They read well in most anything. If it has worked fine & then started having this problem I would first check to see if your using the same discs that have always worked with it & if so then you may want to open the unit & clean the laser lens with a cotton swab lightly soaked in rubbing alcohol. Especially if it has been smoked around or is in a dusty environment.
