Hi,

So the problem is that the player is not able to read the discs right?

Waiting for your reply..

    see if the player tries to read the disc. Load a disc and listen.
    Does
    the player make squealing noises or is it totally quiet? Squealing
    noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the
    disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path
    inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by
    an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.

    Totally
    silent means that the photo sensor is not getting any usable input from
    the laser at all, meaning that the pickup is "blind" for lack of a
    better word.
    This can be caused by an obstruction of the beam by
    foreign matter on the lens or inside the pickup all the way to a
    marginal or failed laser diode and/or photosensor array. This can also
    be caused by a bad ribbon cable with one or more severed traces.

    You
    could try to clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as
    far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover
    off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a
    very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings
    to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust
    accumulating, but its still worth the try.

    If you actually see dust on the lense, then its just that simple. clean, close, play.


    It may also be worth your while to check on the small shafting that
    guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and
    solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser
    eye then fails to read the next track. Please refer to the image below.



    If still ur problem is not solved then i am sad to say you have to get it repaired and thats the only solution..

    Good luck..

Hiya Celty,

We can check on this, but it'd be good to have some more information first:

What kind of disk(s) have you tried?
Are they new disks or home-burned?
Are the bottom disk surfaces clean and free from scratches?

    Honestly Celty, if it's a new player and it's not playing any good disks, I'd recommend returning it for a different one because it's likely faulty and who wants to dig around in their brand new dvd player?

I would like the multi zone code for a samsung V6800 dvd


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.

Hi there, have a Samsung DVDV6800 purchased in July that wont play all region discs. Can you tell me how to put in the codes for multi zones?


1. Power on your player with no disc in the tray. Wait for message "No Disc" in the top left hand corner of your screen.
2. Press and hold the Repeat button on your remote control for approximately 5 seconds.
3. Enter the code below. (Note that you must know what Region your player is currently set to in order to know which code is appropriate.)
for Region 1 use 2, 9, 3, 3 and 4
for Region 2 use 3, 8, 7, 6 and 7
for Region 3 use 5, 6, 7, 3 and 2
for Region 4 use 7, 6, 8, 8 and 4
for Region 5 use 5, 3, 8, 1 and 4
for Region 6 use 2, 4, 4, 6 and 2
4. The message "No Disc" will now be replaced with the default region number of your player. For example, Australian and N.Z players will display a small "4".
5. Press "9" for multi-region.
6. Open tray and insert your title.
7. Close tray.

The player will continue to hold the changes you have made. If this does work for you the first time, keep repeating steps 2&3 until the players default region number appears. The amount of time holding the repeat button does seem critical.
