I keep getting "Format Error" notice for the disk that is in the camera now. Unfortunately I now cannot get the door open to remove the dvd - battery powered or plugged in; it says it is "Preparing To Open Cover" but it doesnt open and goes back to "Disk Access" which again fails to read and says "Format Error" and "Preparing To Open Cover" and so on and so on! Any ideas?!

turn on the unit and then tried to press the play button while the cd tray is in place. if doesn't work, unplug the dvd player then open the cover to access the internal part. look for a broken limit switch for cd tray mechanical assembly or check weather the cd not in proper place in the tray that is why an error occur.
I called Samsung who suggested pushinhg the play button on the panel and the power button on the remote together. "No disc" eventually showed on the screen and pushing the open/close door button worked.
However, my remote wouldn't work, even after changing batteries.
The machine did play. Unfortunately, later that night I tried another DVD and it locked up again. The next day I tried the above 2-step and it worked again, so maybe the other DVD caused trouble. But I cant get my remote to do anything except the 2-step listed above.
your laser lens need to be clean/use a qtips and wood alcool /ject disk open cover keep door open
unplug dvd and you will see the lens just wiped whit the q tips ,gently and you done it should works fine
put the cover back and try it;if it wont work you may have to replaced the laser assembly its easy..
hope that will help you
When you open the door you will see 2 metal tabs that are sensors to that are pushed by 2 plastic tabs on the door that push on the metal tabs to let the camera know the door is shut. For whatever reason these tabs are not pushed up enough and I triggered them by sticking something in there to make contact. I used the end of a toothpick for now. May be primative but it works for now and I may look for a method to make it permanant but at least my camera works now
Try turnin the camera to the side where gravity will help pop open the disc and be careful not be keeping it close with your own hand. Its a thin cover and you can accidently be holding it close without knowing.
What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.
lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it
needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a
decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.
