Lost signal to DVD player

We have owned our DVD player for 3 yrs. Last summer it started acting up by saying signal lost. When we spoke to the installer he said to keep pressing the play button over and over till it fixes itself. That has not worked. Do you think you can give us a suggestion as to what is going on with our player. We have 7 children and would like it working as soon as possible.

Thank you in advance,

There is a 12" black ribbon cable that feeds from the mounting unit to the lcd. You can see it when you have the lcd fully open right in the center where the hing is. I am curently working on this problem myself. this is the second time I have had to take it out off the ceiling and disassemble the whole DVD. It seems to pinch it in half. Ive owned this for 5 years. Good Luck....

    Hi dbirk72, I have a broken tape on my Directed car overhead dvd player as you did, but the local authorized dealer cannot get a reply from the company. How did you contact them? Thanks,

Why does it keep "saying" out of range?


if camera and base are within a few feet of one another does it have a problem obtaining a signal (syncing ) ?? as if it works ok then there might be a object that is getting in the way of the signal , radio waves move from its transmitter (camera) towards its receiver (monitor) in a straight line , if there is too large a mass in the way then the radio wave can't penetrate it and will be "lost" also ck both the camera's and bases battery levels (if they have one) for proper peak power level , as it takes energy to drive the radio signal towards its receiver .

I need a user's manual for Samsung DVD-R155.


you can go to samsung.com and on the top right corner there's a search box, go ahead and type in your model number and you are going to get 3 results. click on the 3rd link that says downloads and user manual. from there it will take you to the download center and you will see that you can download manual from a pdf file usinf adobe acrobat reader. or you can call samsung directly to have them send you one by mail.

Completely lost the picture and sound. All that


You didn't mention from where your signal originates and that clue screen is common to many sets and means it is seeing no input signal.
The set would seem to be functional, otherwise you wouldn't be seeing the input selection menu.
While it is possible that the RF section/tuner (that handles the signal coming in) has failed, these are pretty solid.
If you have another set or can borrow one to connect to whatever source you have (antenna, cable, satellite) to see if a signal is, in fact, there.  As an alternative, you could connect your own signal source; VCR, DVD player, or, as it offers, HDMI or a PC and set it to whichever input you have supplied with signal.

Sound


I have sometimes hoad this problem when I had the audio mode set incorrectly. The dialogue comes through the center channel and that's where it gets lost. I had to cycle through (I believe) the 3D phonic setting to get it right. Check the fine print in the owner's manual.

Hope this helps.
