Try carefully cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that doesn't work, the most likely problem is the optics having failed. This model is not one that has replacement parts readily available. The parts would be more expensive then replacing the unit.

Why wont this player play my dvds


Either the DVDs are too damaged for the DVD to play them, or the DVD player is experiencing some issues that need to be fixed. Have you tried playing the DVDs in another player? If they work, then you know its the DVD player, in which case you might as well just buy a new one. If the DVD doesn't play in a different player, then you know the DVDs are damaged.

My dvd player keeps saying loading but will not play


Try a DVD cleaning kit, this will sometimes put more life in the player, if it fails the laser pickup assembly will need to be replaced in order to fix this problem, I would suggest a estimate before you consider.

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

DVD player won't play DVD, says "load"


The unit can recognize that a disc has been loaded but can not read the contents. This can be as simple as a dirty lens or more drastic like failing optics. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to correct the problem and a music CD will play OK, then the optics are failing. DVDs require more laser power to read than a music CD.

Unit probably has a defective disk motor that is in border line failure. When problem again arises, have the motor replaced

DVD Player problem


limpiale el lente del laser con un cotonete impregnado de alcohol isopropilico es la pequeña cosa que parece un ojo de pescado pero ten cuidado de no tocarlo con los dedos ya que lo dañarias primero con el lado mojado y despues con el seco.Suerte
