I went to view a dvd (and I tried a few) today after not using my player for a few weeks and the image was all over the screen, moving from side to side and up the screen like a scrambled image (I almost feel that if it had a vertical/horizontal hold that I'd be able to fix it).
Yes I understand what you mean to me. If your DVD player is running through a coxial [analog] output/input. Try retuning your television presdet for the player. If you have a digital output, rca,av,svideo make sure that the plugs are properl;y inserted and not faulty and are inserted in the RIGHT plug. If your DVD player is running through a surround sound video router test it without running ir through the surround. Hope this helps.

Make sure the materials you're trying to record onto the DVD
is not Copyrighted. Try to record a normal TV program onto your
VHS, transfer it to your DVD and then play it. See if that will
work. A VHS movie is usually Copyrighted and Protected by
Macrovision. The picture output can be displayed on a TV set
for viewing but is scrambled black to a DVD Recorder.
When you put disc in dvd player tray, optical laser got initialized automatically and all previous data in memory of player erased. You should not worried about laser movement because its control by servo section of dvd player circuitry. Kindly contact Samsung to provide warranty cover of your newly player. Need further info, let me know please.
The processor in your player may have gotten scrambled from the power outage.
Try pulling the AC plug and letting it stew in its own powerless juices overnight and then try it again.
BTW, there is no 'needle' in any player; they use a tightly focused laser beam to read the disc.
Stop the DVD at the picture that you want to capture.

Press the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard.
Release the CTRL key.

take a quick peek in the manual and find out where to disable the progressive scan features. may be a button on the back, or you may have to go through the on screen menu to find it. take the disc out and see if you can view what's on screen.
or since you said you had a couple of movies that did work properly, put one of those in, start the movie, go into the dvd player setup menu and disable the progressive scan settings
sounds like the video codec got scrambled. if you are running windows, then try using restore [start-programs-accessories-system tools-restore]. if you never turned restore feature on, then re-install the DVD software
