Question about Samsung DVD-V8600 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Player does not recognize that a disk has been inserted

I put a disk in the player and close the drawer. One of two things happen. One, the screen will briefly show it being loaded and then a message will appear indicating that there is something wrong with the disk, The second, and more usual, is that the screen will state that the disk is loading and then in a few seconds, the message "no disk" appears on the screen. The disks are fine and the player has been working great for 2 years and then this came up suddenly. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

    We have the same problem with a LG RH2T160, The problem is inconsistent and seems to be made worse when a DVD is left in the player after turning power off. The weird thing is that the player will then only play the DVD it could play before and reject every other DVD. (????) Am going to try and get it repaired under warranty.

Hey vmon,

If you haven't been having any trouble previously with any of your DVD's, you may wish to consider cleaning the lens of the DVD player itself. Dust, lint and other contaminants can often prevent players from being able to read or even recognize any disc in the player.

Typically, you should be able to clean the lens by using any commercially available CD/DVD cleaning kit. Many major retailers will stock one or more type of kit, which normally resemble DVD's with tiny brushes or grooves on the bottom. These "brushes" should clean the surface of the optical drive by pushing debris away from the lens.

Should cleaning the lens not resolve the issue, there are a number of other problems that may have occurred. These problems generally include possible electrical failures or laser misalignment, and may need to be determined by a factory-authorized technician.

Remember that if you are unsure how to locate a repair technician in your area, you may always bring your player into your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Why can't we get the dvd to eject?


Possibility 1 -
The laser light inside the DVD player is most probably no longer aligned and cannot read the beginning of the disk. Therefore it keep on trying to find the first line but it can't.
Possibilty 2 -
Your husband entered a pirated copy and sometimes the first few tracks are unreadable due to the lower quality of DVD-R used and it jams the laser light inside the DVD player.
What needs to be done is to unplug the DVD from its source and gently pull open the DVD drawer in order to remove the stuck disc inside. Once that is done, power up the unit and press on the "eject" bottom so that the drawer can close itself.
Good luck.

Won't reconize disk in player


Well here is your resolution for your problem.

As you saying that when you insert any CD or DVD in Player its shows NO DISK.

Well Sometime what happen is if a CD contains are not compatible with Player than it wont work with it.

Or if you had burn that CD or DVD from your personal computer or laptop but it is not burn in proper format than also it wont work in PLAYER.

Well even if CD or DVD is having any scratches on it or it is Used uncounted enumerable times than also sometimes this things happen and it wont work in PLAYER.

Well before Inserting any CD or DVD in Player Just check the above mentioned points.

If everything is ok with the CD or DVD but than also its shows the same problem than get the CD or DVD cleaner liquid spray or even you can use Spirit to clean the CD or DVD and than Insert it.

After doing all this but if its shows no result in it than go to the company dealer and ask him to change the head of the player and you wont face this problem afterward for sure.

if you still have nay quarries regarding the same or any other you may reply me.

I had the same problem. With me it was laser lens mechanism problem! the laser block justification needs to be adjusted. there is door button push it while a disk is there (the DVD will think the door is closed) then you will see what happens. Push the block softly till it recognizes the disk. If the disk is recognized it will play flawlessly till you change it or power off. The solution would be to readjust the laser block so you do not have to push it around every time you want to watch a film.

H07 on panasonic


hey I just messed around with mine it was showing that code H07 like the others its kinds the same except it holds 4 more disc, I took the top off then I took the thing that holds cd still off!, there should be a brass thing I think thats for the ground, so I ended up putting some synthetic oil on the rails silver poles that the laser slides on, and where the disc sits on that black circle under it, you can see the motor it has a white thing on the motores pole so I just put a few drops on there then spinds it put some more on hoping it works its way DOWN INTO THE MOTOR thats the H07 not spining fast enough!! I put a disk in while everything was apart and its playing right now, the oil I desided to use was the stuff I use for my paintball gun lol! its really thin and slippory and im sure it will last for awhile!.... going to add more after 15 minutes of playing just to make sure its really lubed! hope this helps!!!!

Koss KD365 DVD - Says No Disc


Make sure the disc is spinning. This might sound crazy but try turning the whole player upside down and see if it plays.

DVD-CP67 Multi-disc DVD Player


Normal 0 This solution is most likely being submitted way too late tohelp "dingo 1295", but perhaps it will help others who run into thesame problem.

Just this past week, in January of 2009, I ran into the very same problem witha Panasonic DVD-CP67 DVD Player. The player would no longer play disks anddisplayed the H07 error. Now, I can't answer the question about what exactlythe H07 code is suppose to mean, but I can offer one possible solution for theDVD Player's inability to play disks and the subsequent display of the H07error. What happened in my case is that a film of dirt had built up between theelectrical contacts that are suppose to form a closed circuit when the player'sdisc drawer is closed. The two metal plates that make contact rub againsteach other and the abrasion eventually both creates and traps dirt where theplates touch. Therefore the player could no longer tell that the disk drawerwas closed because the dirt blocked the fragile electrical circuit from beingclosed. Since the player could not tell the drawer was closed it would not spinup and play any inserted disks. I'd also like to note that before the playerquite playing disks and started displaying the H07 error I was watching a DVDand did see the picture quality degrade until the video finally cut out and thedisk stopped.

The Solution in this instance was to carefully remove the cover from theplayer, after removing seven screws found on the back and sides of the player's case,and to clean the metal contacts with a non-abrasive eraser. The pink eraser ona NO. 2 pencil works perfectly.

On the back of the disk drawer, on the right side is a silver metal plate andat the back of the player, mounted on the plastic frame work around the platterthat picks up any disk placed in the player, is a folded copper plate held down with ascrew. Simply unscrew the copper plate and clean it with the eraser were itnormally touches the silver plate on the drawer when the drawer is closed,being sure you do not get any eraser dust inside the DVD player. Although thecopper plate will most likely be the plate with the most dirt on it you canalso clean the silver plate without removing it. Once cleaned, you can reattachthe copper plate with its screw.

Testing... You must place the cover back on the player before it will playdisks. The cover must be fully seated, but does not necessarily have to bescrewed on. You may have noticed when cleaning it that the copper plate has anupward folded tab that presses against the player's metal cover when the coveris closed. Without the copper plate touching the player's metal case throughits cover the previously mentioned electrical circuit won't be closed and theplayer won't play disks. With the cover properly back on the player go aheadand try and play a disk. If it works then the problem is solved and you canfinish screwing the cover back on. If the player still doesn't work thensomething more serious may be wrong and I would suggest contacting a servicecenter.

I hope this helps.
