Question about Samsung DVD-V8500 DVD Player/VCR
Hi! If you are not technically proficient, I would recommend using a quality DVD lens cleaner, readily available from many retail stores. In essence, they are just a DVD disc with tiny brushes attached to the playing side, that gently remove surface debris from the lens. If you are brave, you can also take off the cover of the unit (make sure it is not plugged in to the power outlet...duh...!!!), and the exposed lens may be very carefully (...did I say VERY CAREFULLY strongly enough...?!?) cleaned with a cotton swab and alcohol. If you are not able to correct the tracking issues with either or both of these techniques, I would consider buying a new unit. Unfortunately, the repair cost for realigning the lens and/or circuit replacements are generally more than you would want to spend on an older player (unless it is a very expensive unit). Hope some of this helps.
