Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Toshiba DVD player

DVD's keep freezing for a few seconds at a time during play. DVD's I've played are brand new and clean. When I go back over the time it froze at it's not always there, but may freeze again at a different point. It's a toshiba player and I've only had it 4 months. Could it need cleaning and what do you do to clean it?

The screen goes black every few seconds while playing a dvd. I've tried cleaning the player already and still have the same problem.

I am having a similar problem with mine... same model. It worked fine last night but this morning, went on the fritz. It started pausing every few seconds and so we took the DVD out. This evening, I tried to play a number of different DVDs but now the player will not even read any of the disks. I've had this DVD player for about 6 years so maybe it is just time for something new!?

Have you manually cleaned the laser lens, by removing the outer casing and physically cleaning it with alcohol and a cotton cloth? Have you tried adjusting the angle of the laser lens?
Hope this helps you out.

DVD Freezes during playback

it might be that you are playing a dual layer dvd in the player. The player needs to focus on the second layer of the movie, and that might be why the dvd freezes. Leave it there for a while and the dvd should continue if it is this situation.

Freeze up on DVD

Hi vaffl I read your symptom this morning and it sounds like you might have a tracking problem. In order to confirm this problem remove the top cover. I would start by measuring the power supply voltages. Load a disc in the player and press play. See if there is any change in the voltage levels durring the time that the player starts acting up. Sometimes a faulty voltage regulator will cause this problem. I hope this helps you. Bruce

Movie skips and freezes during play

CD and dvd disc cleaners will not solve the problem, a deeper and delicate cleaning procedure by cleaning the lens manually with an cotton swab is needed...
Although the quality of newer discs is to be discussed.
