Question about Samsung DVD-V3500 DVD Player/VCR
My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read
head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to
never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a
lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

Asslarge's solution above worked for me, although finding the lens was tricky. I had to remove the metal cover, then unscrew the whole DVD unit, and unsnap the seated lower half. Then I was able to find the lens and clean it. It did solve the problem... thanks!

Your laser head is dirty .. maybe because one cd or disc was inserted with dirt on it and interfered with the laser .. sometime greasy fingers on the cd and food one it will block the laser

If you forgot your password, press power on from a cold start
with no disc in the unit. Press the REW and F.F buttons
simultaneously on the front panel for 5 seconds. The "reset ok"
message will appear. Press the POWER button and the
DVD-VCR will go to the "Auto Setup" mode. (See page 13)
