Question about Samsung DVD-R135

1 Answer

Will not play HD DVDs. & will not record

When we rent DVDs sometimes they come only as HD. They will not play. Is it hooked up incorrectly?
Also, having a problem getting it to record. We bought the correct type of DVD so that is not the problem. 
BTW We have two HDMI cables. One from the DVD player to TV and the other from the TV to the digital cable box.

Re: will not play HD DVDs. & will not record

First off this is not an HD dvd player it is a dvd player that has HD upconversion. secondly if you want to record a cable show you will need to push that into the dvd recorder with the a/v input.

If this doesn't happen with regular DvDs you rent or buy, there may be something wrong with the way you're recording DvDs then.
It could also mean the lens head on your DvD reader is dirty

Hello there.

Push "Play/Pause" and "DVD Rec" on the dvd recorder a few seconds to see the service menu. There you can find your firmware version.

Post back the version for us.

Hope this helps.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it

Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Are you trying to play recordable DVDs like DVD-r or DVD+r ? If yes, then try playing ORIGINAL DVDs such as the ones you rent or buy, these are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your dvd player does not support DVD-R or +R - if it still does not work you may have a bad dvd laser diode - in this case you will need a new dvd player - any repairs would be very costly and cost you more than a new player which is very expensive now.

Dvds recorded on video to dvd recorder wont play elsewhere

Mosr DVD recorders have a "compatible" setting or require you to "finalise" the disc. Check that is being done.

It's also worth checking that the laptop will play other DVDs sometimes you need a codec.

My dvd player will not play HD-DVDs it is an HD DVD player

This dvd player doesnt' play HD DVD's it has a HDD which is short for Hard Drive. Which means you can use it like a DVR (Digital Video Recorder) to record your favorite shows and things like that.

Does this answer your question? If not i'm not sure what you're trying to ask could you be a little more elaborate?

When done the machine turns off automatically, and you turn it onagain. Every time mine has stopped working this has fixed it. This might work with yours as well.
