Is the dvd player not turning on at all or is it giving you disc read errors if its giving read errors I would say to grab a can of compressed air and spray out the disk tray to ensure there is not any debris on the lens preventing it from reading discs if this does not work it is most likely a hardware issue and will require some technical assistance


hope this helps

Hi.

The problem is likely a dirty lens.

Please read the instructions here: When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens ....

I have a combination cassette and cd player and I want to hook it to my PC to download cassette tapes for the purpose of burning them onto cd,s.I can't get it to play.


If it won't play tapes by itself, it's possible that the belts that turn the mechanism that pulls the tape through have worn out, or there is some other problem with it.

MySamsung vcr/dvd player tapes and plays back vhs tapes, but will not play dvd', only says it is loading


Hi,

how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.

DVD recorded discs (from VHS) do not play on other dvd players


I called the manufacturer. They admitted to improper instructions. They provided me a fix to their copying protocol and it worked. Also, they game me instructions on how to fix already copied tapes. It works well and I would have to say I was impressed with their customer/technical service.
