Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi The DVD player on my Samsung DVD-HR730 has stopped working. I can record onto the HDD and playback no problems but can't play any DVD's (even ones I've watched on it previouly). They're definitely the correct region and I've made sure there's not a lot of dust in the drawer- any ideas?

Hello Shar2201
Try to clean the read laser and the laser pickup, by using a DVD cleaning disk. If this does not work you may have a misaligned laser or pickup. In which case you will have to take the unit to a shop to have it aligned and cleaned. You can try to do this yourself but if you do not have the proper equipment, you will do more damage then good.

Thank you,

I recorded video from my Sony Handycam to the RH387H HDD and then wrote the video onto a DVD-R disc using the XP setting (instead of SP, LP.....). The disc can only playback now on the LG387H, but cannot...


make sure the disk is finalised after recording, if this does not help then the bit-rate it uses for xp may not be compatable with other dvd players, in which case stick to sp,lp or dual-layer sp is best if ou can.

DVD will not recognise discs


I think that moisture has formed on the boards.

The best thing to do is to take the recorder
and put in a warm room,connect it and leave for 2-3 hours.
Then try with a disc again.

I hope i`ve helped!

Need to unlock the region code so that I can play Australian DVD's on UK machine


Go to videohelp.com and search on the model number - the sequence of remote control keys to press to change the region code is there. It worked well for me, so I could play US DVDs on my UK region machine.

Samsung dvd recorder


Make sure you have finalised the disk, otherwise it won't play back on other players. Also there are two standards that you can use to record onto disks, video mode or VR mode. Video mode was the original standard but it wouldn't let you edit or add anything to the recording afterwards but it is more compatible with other players. VR mode allows you to edit the recording but is less compatible for playback on other players.

Doesn't read dvd's


This problem is down to failure of the laser and an only be solved by replacing it. Samsung are aware of this fault but will only offer a free replacement if the unit is still covered by it's warranty.
They do offer a replacement service but charge £94 for it.

SAMSUNG HR733 DVD RECORDER WILL NOT PLAY ANY REGION DISCS AT ALL


On page 45 of the user manual it says this:

Both the HDD & DVD RECORDER and the discs are coded
by region. These regional codes must match in order for the
disc to play. If the codes do not match, the disc will not play.
The Region Number for this HDD & DVD RECORDER is
described on the rear panel of the HDD & DVD RECORDER

If you changed the region codes on your player it will not work. They should be set back to 1 or whatever your model says on the back of the unit.

If this unit was purchased outside the United States, it may not work in the United States.

Here is a copy of the manual if you need it:

Wont play dvd discs


Hi all.
I have 'a' solution. It is a pain in the neck but what I do is just keep closing the drawer after the message "this disk can neither be played or recorded, please check disk" comes on screen until it does what it is meant to do.
I am only doing this to clear off the hard drive then I am going to buy another machine.
