Samsung V6800 when I install a disc the system comes back with "This disc an not be played - please check disc. How can I correct this


If the unit will not play any disc the unit is probably faulty and is just displaying a generic message triggered by the unit not being able to read the disc.

If only some discs will play and others don't, even though the format is the same, it could be the discs are of differing origins. I have experienced this before and assume the laser of some models aren't as powerful as others. Some players seem as though they don't play "cheaper" discs and others seem to play everything.

Have a Samsung DVD-V6800 Will not play a dvd regional 1


Make sure the player is switched on, and is at the Samsung logo
screen. Also check the tray is shut and that there's no disc in the
player.

Now press the REPEAT button on the remote, followed by a five digit
code. This code is different depending on what region your player is
*currently* set to:

R1 - 29334
R2 - 38767
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462

So for example if you have an R2 player, press REPEAT-3-8-7-6-7.

If you've done this correctly (and your player is compatible with the
hack), you should see a number at the top left corner of the screen
corresponding to the current region.

Now, pressing any number from 1 to 6 will change to the corresponding
region. Or, press 9 for auto-region mode.

Next, press OPEN/CLOSE to open the tray, followed by Standby (or DVD
POWER) on the remote to close it and put the player into Standby mode.
The next time you turn your player on, the new region will be set.

Don't forget that if you want to hack it again, you'll need to use a
different code, as listed above. If it's currently set to region 9,
use the code for the last *proper* region you set it to.

hope this helps

Hi, I have a samsung dvd/vcr combo player model number v6800 which I hacked to be region free. It now plays dvds with region codes regardless from where they originate (ie; 1 or 4), however, some of my...


If the dvds which are "all regions" are recorded from a computer, your dvd player may not play them. I assume the dvds which have a region code have been professionally prepared. Sometimes, the cheap dvd players will play anything while the more sophisticated ones will give you trouble unless everything is just perfect.

Want to make Samsung V6800 multizone, can anyone help? Thanks


Unfortunately, I got the answer somewhere else, but I'm happy to pass it on. Here it is. I did the 'repeat button and the R4 number and the 9. And it works on the overseas ones and the local ones. I never saw a number in the top left hand corner, but it works.

Samsung dvd-v6800 not reading disc

Problem with the lens


I think we have a design problem here; possibly the unit uses a single-beam laser. Here are the symptoms I have found from my V6800.
When I inserted a DVD that had some minor imperfections, I found that the DVD would hang, usually at the same spot. After cleaning the DVD, there was a noticeable improvement, but it still would start to hang at about 38 to 44 minutes.
Although I have not corrected the problem, I did get enough information to pin the blame on the V6800, and not the DVD with the minor imperfections. Here is how I came up with my conclusion:
I took the "defective" DVD to my PC, and made a copy of it.
The copy played perfectly on the V6800.
The "defective" DVD played perfectly on my PC.
CONCLUSION: If you have a DVD in perfect condition, the V6800 will play it without any problem.
I don't like the DVD medium because of the scratch problem. Fortunately the write-once Flash Memory cards will take the place of the DVD in the near future. Watch SanDisk!

Won't Read blank disc!!


Ok, I talked to Samsung support again today, and they confirm that the firmware update should correct the problem of incompatibility with 1-16x discs. They are going to mail a CD with the firmware update to me, at no charge. They were not, however, able to tell me if the file I had originally downloaded from their website was the same as what will be coming on the CD. Sheesh!!

If I can determine that they are the same file, I will post such info. here later. Otherwise, I would advise contacting Samsung support and requesting a disc.

The phone no. is:
