Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players
Hi, I was wondering if anyone could advise me on how to fix my Samsung DVD player. I put a dvd in the disk tray and it said loading and on the screen said disk cannot be played. I then tried with a few more DVD's (all in perfect condition) but none of them worked.
Thank you for any help.

If the region setting is correct and won't even read a cleaning disc, there's not much you can do. Either the DVD drive or the Main board (aka MPEG board) is faulty and will have to get it repaired. I'm not sure about UK, but in Australia, Bush manufacturing warranty period for DVD players is 12 months.

On page 45 of the user manual it says this:
Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER
If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.
If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.
Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

i had exactly the same problem on a LG-RH278H resp. a Medion MD 81733. I solved it by opening the micoswitches, cleaning the contacts and streching the springs inside the switches a little. The Problem was, that one of the microswitches stayed conductive even when it was off/open.
