If all else fails

Turn the power off to the unit. take out the 5 case top cover screws. looking at the top of the DVD player tray you will see a catch on each side of bracket that holds the wheel that retains the top side of the DVD. This bracket slides slightly forward and then lifts up. The DVD will now lift our of the tray. Be sure to put this bracket back in the same way you got it out. Don't break the two small on each side putting the bracket back in. Remember to put all the screws back in the top cover. Now plug the machine back in and hold down the power on off button for 30 seconds. then let go. The unit should power up. Now try pusing the door open button. The door should open fine. Try as many of the buttons as you can without a DVD in the unit for proper opperation. if all checks out ok try the power down thing AGAIN WITH THE ON OFF BUTTON FOR 30 SECONDS! Now try all the buttons again making every thing functions correctly. Now try your disc again!

    I have two Samsung units and both are junk, neither unit lasted more than one small box of 25 DVDs. $400 for one of these Samsungs IS QUITE a cost to make less than 25 DVDs, then it breaks!

    I was dumb twice and own two of these and neither works and one even got shipped to the coast for repair and only worked 4 months before it died again. The DVD trays go out of tracking and then it costs $99 for a new tray and service ontop of that.

    Answer is to not buy Samsung!

Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in then trying to release it? or it may possibly be jammed between the slide and the top of the dvd player...thats about all i could think of that could be wrong with a dvd

Torpedo heater wont stay lit.

Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.
