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.

My computer wont recognise my dvd burner but it will read and play dvds just wont burn them and when i try a new dvd burning tool it cant fint my burner


Is your DVD drive a Combo DVD ROM and CD Read/writer? If so it cannot burn DVD only reads DVDs and read and burn CDs.
If the program cannot find a DVD burner then either the burning software cannot support that model DVD burner ot the DVD burner is faulty.
To test the DVD burner, remove it and install it into another computer to test the burner to see if is faulty.

Dvd player doesnt play the movies


Try another DVD. If problem persists and it does not work with any type of DVD, whether recordeable burnt DVDs or original pressed DVDs then your unit is bad - either dirty lens or the laser diode is bad.

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.

DVD player isn't loading and playing properly


Since it will play eventualy, I'd suspect a dirty lens. Open up the unit and carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, try a music CD. If the CD works flawlessly but DVDs still fail occasssionally, the optics are starting to fail and will need to be replaced.
