Re: My dvd player will just not operate. it switches on...

Are you getting this message with or without a disc in it? If it is with a disc, try cleaning the lens with a DVD lens cleaner.

Power on off button not working

It could be a number of causes including a faulty power supply, the switch itself is broken for whatever reason, or a microprocessor fault preventing it from turning on/off as required.

If the unit does not operate at all even with the remote, then it would likely be a power supply problem, not the switch, which means a workshop repair (if you are prepared to spend a couple of hundred dollars on parts and labour outside warranty) to restore this to full functionality as when it was new, as several parts may have shorted/failed in this circuit.

Samsung has a nasty habit of using unusual rated/valued components in their appliance power supplies, particularly IC regulators, so these are generally not obtainable off the shelf to the public, the only exception being electrolytic capacitors being standard as their values and working voltages can be uprated when replaced.

Dvd drawer keeps opening up on its own and will not stay shut?

There is a switch located at the front of the player right under the DVD tray. This switch tells the player that the door is completely closed. If this switch does not operate, then the Ilo will re-open the DVD tray thinking that something is jammed. Might want to try replacing that switch

I don't know if this will help, but according to the operator's manual I have, on page 64, the only place it mentions "Full" or "Quick" Preparation, is when using a DVD-RW disc. Apparently, with this type of disc, you must use the Full or Quick preparation INSTEAD of Finalizing after you're thru recording onto the disc.
With the DVD-R and DVD+R, all you can do is "Finalize"; With the DVD+RW, if I'm reading this correctly, NIETHER Finalization OR Preparation is required.
But with the DVD-RW, apparently ALL you can do is a "FULL" or "QUICK Preparation.
If you're only getting "Erase or "Finalize" WITH the DVD-RW, then it appears there may be a problem with the machine.
Or, if you're attempting the "FULL or QUICK" Preparation with any disc OTHER than the DVD-RW, all you should get is "erase" or Finalize", since the QUICK or FULL Preparation is not done with discs other than DVD-RWs.

Hope this helps. I'm certainly not an expert on these things....I'm a "Vinyl" type guy.

Problems playing recordings

Did you "finalize" the DVD before trying to play it in another player? This is what I have to do.
