Replacement mechanisms are shipped with a solder bridge that shorts out the laser to prevent problems with static electricity during shipping and installation. Did you remove that bridge? It should be on the optics assembly itself.

Disc does not spin when inserted into the machine and shows only load on the screen


This is a common problem usually caused by a weak laser pickup, as a last resort you can use a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol to gently clean the laser lens, if no change the DVD assembly will need to be replaced, costly adventure.

Won't Read DVDs


The problem is in the laser pickup, overtime it becomes weak, or the pladder motor the dvd sits on becomes defective. The only option is to clean the laser pickup lens with a Q-Tip and rubbing alcohol and hope for the best. If this fails the entire assembly must be replaced "very expensive" or replaced the dvd/vcr combo "cheaper solution"

DVD Player doesn't work on DRC6355N VCR/DVD Combo


With most dvd/vcr combo units there is separate wiring. When I use my emerson combo unit I have it wired that I have to be on different inputs on my tv to view a dvd and a vhs. On some units the vcr portion is wired via a regular cable line, while the dvd portion is wired with the yellow, red, and white component cable. Try inserting a dvd and scrolling through your tv inputs until you find the picture or check your wiring to ensure nothing has come loose. If that has no result you could try wiring it differently if possible to eliminate that as a possibility.

My Sony DVD/VCR combo will play cds but not dvds. I took the top of the player off and I can see that the dvd spins but it won't play. It used to play everything very well but just stopped working...


Please clean laser lens with good quality cotton bud gently and check dvd disc playback, if still does not play, replace optical lens block.
Let me know model number of your Sony DVD-VCR combo to provide you optical laser block part number info.
Thanks.

THERE ARE NO HEADS IN A DVD PLAYER! IT,S CALLED A
LASER. IF YOU TAKE THE UNIT APART DO NOT LOOK AT THE LASER IT WILL BLINED YOU BE CAREFULL WHEN YOU CLEAN IT. IFF WHEN YOU CLEAN IT IT STILL DON,T READ THE DVD,S IT MAY BE BAD. IF THATS THE CASE, IT,S TIME TO GET
ANOTHER DVD PLAYER. THE LASER COST TO MUCH TO REPLACE.

Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player


My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.

So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.

Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.
