Question about Samsung DVD-V5500 DVD Player/VCR
We have 2 dvd-v5500 dvd-vcr combos 1 we bought new and 1 we bought used from ebay the 1 we bought new will play back home recorded dvds on the dvd-rw and the dvd-r dl type discs the 1 we bought used will play about 30 to 45 minutes of these same discs then the picture will freeze i know there is no problem with the discs since they play on the machine we bought new , so what might be the problem with the used machine it look's good and appears to be in good working order by that i mean that everything works except this problem with playback,do you think that it just needs a good cleaning or is some other adjustment required. Thank you for any advise you may be able to give me
Hi. What I am trying to establish from my last question is whether the laser has become heat sensitive or whether there is a bit of dust buildup on the spindle table that might be causing the disc to have excessive wobble.
If the disc has excessive wobble, then the machine will have trouble tracking the outer tracks and will constantly skip as you have described after say 30 to 45 minutes.
If the laser has become heat sensitive then the same problem could potentially occur - The only difference being that if you were to restart the movie at that point, then the skipping would continue even at the beginning of the movie.
The first problem (wobble) is easy to fix - Clean the spindle table, the second problem may render the unit uneconomical to repair.
