Unit worked for many years but now won't play DVD's. When DVD is loaded a "clicking" sound is heard but unit doesn't seem to want read the DVD. Dirty disk lens? And if so how fix. Thanks Kevy
Player OK reading shows"No disc"

Probably damaged by power surge. If you do not have experience diagnosing and repairing electronic circuits as well as having access to schematic diagrams then this is not a repair for you. Failure to replace all damaged components may result in damaging new parts.
I also have a Samsung Dvd player. If it is a dvd you burned yourself it may not recognize the disc. If you have loaded a purchased or rented disc and it still won't load, I would say the head is dirty or the unit is defective. I would try a head cleaner first.available at most electronics stores If that doesn't work you probably will need to send it in for repair.
The set is not accepting the data on initial scan and is rejecting.
Can be that the DVD process boarrd is faulty, Th optical head is faulty, the drive mechanism is faulty in not loading fully.
Try to load original types, if this works then a region settting must be done on some models to allow playing all types of modes
Need to check this out.
The usual cause of this is the optical disk itself. Either the media has defects that your player doesn't like, or the codec needed to 'read' the disk is missing or unknown. Try playing a standard DVD from the music store. If that plays ok, you may need to upgrade your firmware. New firmware should be available from the maker's web site.
Does it stop on both channels? It sounds to me like the safety circuit is activating. This usually happens when either the volume is too high, or the speaker load is too great (i.e. usually loads less than 4 ohms will do this) or, the amplifier has an internal short causing the amplifier's output stage to become un-balanced. Does the sound come out nice and clearly through both channels? How long does the receiver play before the sound stops? How loud are you playing the music when it stops like this? If the sound is reasonably clear through both channels at regular volume, then there is probably nothing at all wrong with the receiver's output circuits. If the amplifier is being played at regular volume or even lower volume for quite a while and then quits, perhaps the receiver is getting too hot and it's thermal sensors are activating the protection circuit. Make sure that when you operate the receiver, that there aren't things laying on top of it blocking the unit from venting and cooling properly. Make sure it has plenty of breathing room - amplifiers (most of them anyway) are inherently subject to producing heat. If the amplifier only quits when played at high volume, well then that's probably the problem - it's probably not meant to deliver such power that you're asking it to - especially if you're driving a heavy load such as 4 ohms or less. If you're running several speakers on this unit, try scaling back to just two speakers for now, and make sure these are 8 ohm speakers. Play the unit for a while and see how it does.
Turn off zone 2 then turn your receiver on the main zone on Radio, tune in a station and check for audio. Post a comment and let me know if audio works that way. If you don't have any audio, list your other equipment makes and models as well as how they are interconnected to your receiver (cable type) and I will help you troubleshoot
This player had problems playing copied discsfrom other machines but should play its own.Have you been finalizeing the discs? if not do this when you record a disc,also try useing cheap dvds.Lastly if the player is still makeing funny noises it may need a new dvd drive.
I just started having the same problems with my Onkyo TX-DS575. I have to play with the DSP buttons...the A/B speaker button...and now it has gotten to the point where my family and I lift the receiver up in the front, and slam it back down on the shelf and then hit the DSP buttons again and eventually we get some sound. This unit was already fixed once by Onkyo right after the 2 year warranty ran out for a similar problem. They returned it working...but scratched. This is the second Onkyo receiver that has died an early death within 15 years. I love Onkyo's styling, ease of use and sound, but I found the best way to solve this was by purchasing the Yamaha RX-V861 this week. I am done with Onkyo.

Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
