SOURCE: I have a Samsung DVD-R 120
Exactly the same problem with mine. I even went shopping today after months of buying dvds that wouldn't play, to buy a new player. I then had a silly revelation. I pressed open and with a tight grip on a cotton bud I swept all that I could reach within the recorder. Can you believe it but it worked. Now I have my multiregion back and it has so far played all of the PAL 2 and PAL 4 dvds that I have bought since the PSO came on months ago. I don't what the problem was or if this is relative to your problem but I wanted to let you know....

Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).
I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.
If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.
Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.
Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units

I've gone through two of these machines in less than a year. They exhanged the first one because it stopped loading after a few weeks...the second one stopped loading dvd's after about 6 months. Now I'm out the money. Sounds like they must know this is a defect.
