Dvd door will not open or close when eject/open button is pushed. I can open door and slide tray out by hand, howevery when disc is inserted in tray and pushed back in, system does not read disc as being...

The low humming sound is the motor that opens and closes the drawer. It is moving, but the movement is not being transferred to the door by a pulley, a belt or a gear, When you open the drawer completely, it should stop. When the drawer is closed completely it continues to run until the disc is in the proper position to play. As long as that motor is running the DVD will not work because the disc is not in the proper position,

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

Hi,I have the dvr c300 model and about 4 months ago it refuses to read dvds/cds etc. It won't even recognize a cleaning disc in case it's just dust on the lens. I tried this morning to spray air in there...

I have the same exact problem with my DVR-C300, just happened two days ago. Ironically enough, I bought this system about five years ago as a floor model, and it didn't come with a remote; I just ordered up a remote, and the day the remote came in the mail, the system stopped working.
I've taken off the top cover by removing the seven T-10 screws, and cleaned off the laser lense with a cotton ball, still no luck.

I read elsewhere that if the spindle motor (proper name?) is not spinning the discs fast enough, it will not read, and you may need to replace the motor (looks fairly simple). However, the problem is, I never bothered to pop the top and see how fast it spun the discs before this problem, so I have nothing to compare the current speed to.

Depending on which part or parts it may be, it may be more cost effective to purchase a new one (I've found some that are still in the factory seals for around $130).

I have a cdc 675 CD changer, When I close the draw it stays close about 10 seconds, the display reads "open" and it opens back up whether there are discs in it or not

It's reporting that it (correctly or incorrectly) detected that the drawer has not fully "closed", i.e., it thinks that there was a "jam" while the drawer was sliding towards the "closed" position.

This sounds (pun intended) like you need to take the unit to a qualified audio/video technician, to trouble-shoot, and maybe check the "alignment" of the drive-tray.

Display reads OPEN LOCK when I try to open dvd tray.

Samsung Home Theater Systems have a Dealer Lock or Tray Lock Function that prevents the disc tray from being opened.
There are four procedures for turning off the Dealer Lock function. Try one, then the other, to see which works on your system.
Unlocking Procedure 1 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps:
  1. Turn on your Home Theater System.
  2. Press the Stop button on the front panel and the Power button on the remote control simultaneously for four seconds.
Note: Repeating the two steps above turns the dealer lock on again.
Unlocking Procedure 2 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps
  1. Turn on your Home Theater System.
  2. Press and hold the Function button on the front panel for 3 seconds. The display shows the word Unlock.
Note: Repeating the two steps above turns the dealer lock on again.
Unlocking Procedure 3 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps
  1. Turn on your Home Theater System.
  2. Press and hold the Open/Close button on the DVD player on the front panel for more than 4 seconds.
Note: Repeating the two steps above turns Dealer Lock on again.
Unlocking Procedure 4 To turn off the Dealer Lock function, follow these steps
  1. Using the HTS remote press the Menu button + 712, and the HTS will display CAN OPEN.
The Dealer Lock feature is mainly used by retailers to ensure that the display discs are not removed. However, parents of young children may find this feature very useful as well.
