Question about Samsung HT-X40 System

1 Answer

Cannot play DVD's or CD's at all!

Hey, I just got a Samsung HT-X40 Home theatre system for Christmas and right of the box I'm having trouble with it...The surround sound and the subwoofer works's the DVD player I'm having trouble with...anytime I insert a DVD or CD into the player, it takes a while to load and then "DISC ERROR" or "NO DISC" appears on the screen. I have literally not watched anything on this played yet and I tried mutiple discs with the same error. If anybody could offer me any help with this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Cannot play DVD's or CD's at all!

Wow, doesnt sound good. My only thought is that on new devices they often have tape and cardboard inserts to protect the device for shipping. Make sure there isnt any tape or packing material stuck somewhere in the device. Otherwise it must just be a bad player. They shouldnt have any problems exchanging it since you just got it. Good luck!

No disc on samsung

For clarification, was this home theatre system purchased in North America? If so, in all odds it is a "Region 1" DVD player. To play a "Region 2" video, you will need either a 'multi region' player or one that is designated as a "Region 2"
