Question about Samsung DVD-P241 DVD Player

1 Answer

DVD Freeze-Ups I have a Samsung DVD player model # DVD-P241/XAA. It will play a DVD for a few minutes and then freeze up. I can eject the DVD, then insert it again and it will pick up where it left off and play for another few minutes, then repeat the process. It just started recently. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the transverse motor is bad.

Samsung bd-c6900 xaa dvd player freezes on 3d prometheus movie in same spot at scene 20

Report the error to Samsung support. There is an ongoing problem with the firmware. Make sure you have updated to the most recent firmware version 1025.0 that was released this month. There are still unresolved problems with the new firmware release though. Many movies will fail to load and other will load and play but will skip/freeze during playback. This is related to the anti-piracy features on the Blu-Ray that the player can not properly handle.

What dvd laser lens cleaner should I use for my Samsung p241 dvd/cd player?

You can use any branded DVD-lens cleaner. I recommend Sony. It is just like a normal DVD except that brushes will pop out to clean the lens when you play it. After the cleaning is complete the sample video file on the DVD will be played indicating that it has been cleaned. Otherwise clean again.

Can't open dvd drawer


try putting a Blunt knife into the top of the dvd drawer, or where you can get a knife in.
And gently prise the drawer open whilst pressing eject on the Player.
Failing this, you will have to *****disconnect from the mains***** remove the screws on the rear of the casing, remove the top cover, and take out the DVD Disk.
Replace then plug back in, to check if the player is Ok.

**** Only remove the casing if you feel competant**** And if the player has no guarantee Or Warranty****

Picture will freeze.

Either the disc is scrathed or you have to remove the cover and take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol and clean the lens.

Technical support needed can't get player to eject disc

I had the same problem today.  I got a screwdriver and opened the case from the back.  It was simple, just 3 black screws.  Then I looked in the unit and saw that there were 2 dvds loaded in the unit. Apparently, my daughter didn't realize a dvd was already in the loading tray when she loaded another dvd.  I gently removed the 2 disks by prying the black plastic holder open and sliding the disks out.  Then I put the cover back on and put the screws back in.  Works fine now.  I hope this helps you.  I don't think the unit has a manual eject button, but it sure was easy opening the case and looking in the unit myself.  Good luck.
