Sampo 612N DVD Player

I saw your note about the Sampo....My player is supposed to be region free but will no play my region 2 discs. My old sampo you typed in the 38883 and it showed a list of regions to the right and you could click on the one you needed and lock it in. This player says it is supposed to do this automatically but mine isn't doing that...your notes to someone else said type 3888X x= 1 thru 6 or something like that.....there is no X....I'm so frustrated, this player is brand new and won't play my discs...I've learned this player is discontinued now...although my player is new right out of the box....it's several years old...Please help if you can. I've rather technically ignorant so any advice would be appreciated....Email is NorthernSkyline@msn.com
ThanX

Sorry for the very late reply because I have left this site for awhile. "X" represents a variable anything from a number 1-6, so instead of an "X" you input a number from 1-6. Got it?
Good luck

Tip

This player is a big,huge hunk of ****.problems since i got it in 2001:...


The most common mechanical problems that can prevent a dvd player from playing or reading the discs are the following:

1. The spindle motor not functioning properly (this is by far the most common, if the spindle motor is not spinning the discs then the optical lens can not read them). For the most part it is an cheap part to replace averaging around 25-35 dollars if you can replace it yourself. If you do not know how and have to take it to a repair shop expect to pay 50-75 dollars in labor depending on the area you live in. The best thing is to do some comparison shopping and call the different repair shops and get estimates. The key is to listen closely when you insert the disk into the player, you should be able to hear it spin up. If you hear nothing then that is most likely the problem.

2. The tray could be out of alignment. This is another easy and cheap fix if you have the proper tools. This could happen if you drop or pull/push to hard on the tray (which you should not really do anyway, but always use the open and close button). This is an example picture of the drive assembly with the tray open.

3. The small gears are plastic and often break, this will cause the players other parts to not move and function properly. They are difficult to reach, but inexpensive to replace. It is always recommended that you always order any part from the manufacturer of the device. A visual inspection is usually required to determine if the small teeth have been broken, which requires for the most part taking out the carriage assembly.

4. The small belt drives either break or come off. Again, this will cause the other mechanical parts not to function. They are difficult to put back on as well, so you may need an extra pair of hands if you have not done this before. On average you will usually have 2-3 of them inside your player.

5. The Optical reader has malfunctioned. This is the most expensive thing to replace, so you might consider purchasing another player depending on how much you want to spend and the original cost of the device, unless you can find a great deal on the part you need. You can check to see if the laser is firing with a visual inspection (DO NOT LOOK DIRECTLY INTO THE LASER) put in a disc with the case off and you should see the glow of the laser hitting the disc. You can also see the spindle/spindle motor.

Picture of the optical reading assembly dismantled:

6. The tray also has a drive motor which can fail and cause the cd tray not to open and it also has a track that it rides on (located in the drive assembly). Check these two components if you are having problems with your tray not opening and closing properly or stops working completely. Sometimes, the tray will open and then immediately close on it's own. This is usually caused by the track being dirty or some type of debris is lodged in the track. Cleaning the inside of the player with a can of compressed air will help remove dust and dirt. Blowing out the inside of the device once a month is a good preventative maintenance measure.

CAUTION: When working with any electrical device, you should always ensure safety first. Make sure that the device is turned off and unplugged from any power source. This does not completely prevent electrical shocks because Capacitors will hold an electrical charge for some time even if the device is turned off and unplugged.
The following are example pictures of what Capacitors look like:

We live in america and we can not see american dvd's it keep sending a message thar it is the wrong region how can can i change it to region 1 which is the american


You live in America and you cannot watch a American film here is why:

1. You ether put in a NON-AMERICAN FILM many people do this by proxy when they want to see a LATIN AMERICAN FILM FROM MEXICO PERHAPS?

2. Or the DVD laser is not picking up the TOC "table of contents" this means repair is in order.

3. Or some body was playing around with the player with some other types of discs that might not been able to be read in the player.

All after witch this sampo player is past its prime.

let me know if there are any questions

I need remote code for a cyberhome 300 dvd. Thanks!!!!!!!!!


I found that it is owned by Sampo and the listing for Sampo codes is 060 in the book I have. I used it to set up my DVD 300 and it worked....kind of. Not all of the buttons correlate with what I press, such as I press PLAY on the new remote and it fast forwards, but for the most part it works. hope this helps
