Question about Samsung DVD-VR330 VCR and DVD Recorder

Open Question

My Samsung DVD-VR330 won't play DVDs - the last 5 brand new DVDs purchased won't play - very annyoying - it just whirs for a while then spits out the DVD, it's very sporadic and will play some but not others. What could the problem be? I've tried cleaning it but doesn't make a difference. It's approximately 3.5yrs old and the problem has occured over the last year or so - I've taken to watching DVDs on the laptop or portable player instead.

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....

SOURCE: Recording on DVD-R with Samsung DVD-R155

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.

In Summary:

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

SOURCE: Samsung DVD-R130 will not load dvds, but will play CDs

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.

Will only play about half the dvds that we put into it. once in awhile if you turn it off and on it will read the disc.


This sounds like the spindle is not spinning the media you may need a new motor, take the top off to see if when you press play the dvd spins this will confirm this

The DVD-VCR unit won't accept any DVD - blank or with content. It says "LOAD" but then ejects the DVD. Same DVD works in an identical Samsung unit in another room.


You may have a dirty lens on the DVD read head. There are CD/DVD cleaning kits available at some drug stores and electronic stores. Do not get a "CD cleaning kit" (that only cleans the discs), get a "CD/DVD lens cleaning kit" (it will have a special CD and cleaning solution) for $10 to $20.
If that's not it the DVD illumination LED may be dead. If it still plays CDs, but won't play DVDs, that's the problem. There are separate LEDs for playing CDs and DVDs.
Either way, if the cleaning doesn't work, it has to be fixed in an electronics shop.

Brand new DVDs will not play in Samsung Progressive Scan v3650


If you're trying to play through to your TV through the RF out on your combo unit, it's probably the copy protection that's stopping the playback. Try through the composite/audio jacks.

Dvds recorded on Samsung will ONLY play on Samsung


Hi,

Have you finalised the disc before trying to play it elsewhere? If not this could well be the problem. The option is the menu.

Hope this helps
