Question about Samsung DVDR120 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

I have a Samsung DVD-R 120. It will not read/play, as it comes up with "the disc cannot be read or played, please check disc" on the screen. Even brand new straight out of the package. Which can be played without issue on either computer or other dvd players in the house. Not sure what to do to clean player...or what. It is relatively new...and still will play a music disc with no problems. Thank you in advance.

Exactly the same problem with mine. I even went shopping today after months of buying dvds that wouldn't play, to buy a new player. I then had a silly revelation. I pressed open and with a tight grip on a cotton bud I swept all that I could reach within the recorder. Can you believe it but it worked. Now I have my multiregion back and it has so far played all of the PAL 2 and PAL 4 dvds that I have bought since the PSO came on months ago. I don't what the problem was or if this is relative to your problem but I wanted to let you know....

Samsung V6800 when I install a disc the system comes back with "This disc an not be played - please check disc. How can I correct this


If the unit will not play any disc the unit is probably faulty and is just displaying a generic message triggered by the unit not being able to read the disc.

If only some discs will play and others don't, even though the format is the same, it could be the discs are of differing origins. I have experienced this before and assume the laser of some models aren't as powerful as others. Some players seem as though they don't play "cheaper" discs and others seem to play everything.

When a disc is loaded, it reads no disc, and disc cannot be played.


It is very possible that the lens motor has burnt out. Sometimes the capacitors on the motherborard short out causing the gear timing to go out..

The only thing you can do to fix this is to take the cover off. Get cotton swab and dip it rubbing alcohol and clean the glass laser eye with it.

DVD won't play


Its Sounds as if your DVD went kaput this tends to be a problem with most combination players usually the VCR goes first also you may need to run a cleaning CD made for DVD players maybe that will help.

My 14" dvd combi player wont read any disc i put in. The only thing that happens is that the main screen says reading disc then about 1 minute later is says please insert a playable disc. I have tried...


The optics can not read the disc. Try cleaning the lens inside using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also try playing a music CD. If the CD plays but a DVD continues to fail, the opticsl will need to be replaced. Depending upon the specific model, this could cost anywhere from $50-$120.

try checking on the recording mode of the DVD. V recording mode produces more compatible DVD disc. Stay away from VR mode. You may refer to your manual.
