Question about Samsung DVD-V8600 DVD Player/VCR
Either your EVD players' Laser Pickup Unit is dusty, or its laser emission has gone down. Jusp put a cleanin disc in it and play for at least three times by taking it in and out. If this helps the pickup units' lens was dirty. If not there is no other way than replacing it with a same type and number. When replacing, insist on same type and number, never install a susbstitue one, as it is critical component of your system.
Just do one thin first. Open it after unscrewing the 5 or 6 screws on the side and back, and look into the mechanism to see the strip wire used to connect between laser pickup unit ot the main board is detachable or not. In most DVD playersm it is detachable by loosing the two small end clios at its two connecting ends. if it a detachable one, it will look white in colour with some lines through it, a flexible one, which moves alongwith the laser pickup unit. Its tracks are of carbon lines, and not copper metal material. it is easy to break as it has to meove according to the tracking movement of the pickup unit. It will have upto 18 carbon conductors through it, and even one of them breaks internaly, will poise some problem in disc reading and playing. So if it is a detachable one, replace it first and see the effect. If it is attached with the laser pickup unit, and is not detachable, the only way is to replace it. Samsung uses both types of pickup units and so I gives this explanation to you. If you want anymore assistance, fee free to contact me through Fixya. OK
Wish you Happy and Peacefull 2011.
