Are you trying to play DVD+R's? I have the same trouble. It only like DVD-R's and it is picky about which companies DVD's they are also. Don't use generic ones, I guarantee the failure rate will make the money you saved buying them go away quickly.

Self check


Please be a bit more specific if you can. In what way is it repeating itself? And once it comes on does it stay on? It could be a component faulty on the power supply side.

DVD Burner will not read disks.


Hi ****,

I've one of these machines too, and you've stumbled upon the one flaw that lets the machine down. In my experience the only way to solve this is to:
1/ Eject the DVD
2/ Turn the machine off (standby mode)
3/ Unplug from the wall for at least a minute or 2
4/ Reconnect the machine, leave it at least a minute in standby mode.
5/ Attempt to play a known 'good' (commercial) DVD

This usually works although I have occasionally had to repeat the process. Hope this helps, regards,

Plays for a minute or two - then just shuts itself off


Mine will intermittently record only the first minute or two of a tv show I have queued up to regularly record. It seems to happen anywhere from every show to every 5-10.

Hdd error


try replacing the red sata cable which runs from the HDD under the DVD drive to the main board on the right-hand side. these are a common problem on these models, there cheap and unreliable. you can purchase a better quality cable from a computer store for little money. HDD ERROR is'nt necessery an HDD fault as i found out with my rdr-hx525. if however the HDD is faulty and you buy a replacement, once installed you will need to pair the new HDD with the unit by entering the service mode by unplugging the AC then while holding down open/close and play together then re-insert the AC lead while still holding open/close and play and wait until you see an "S" in the display then let go and the service mode will appear on the tv screen. go to no.9 HDD mode, press enter then go to no.3 Write ID then it will say "execute write ID?" yes and press enter and then it will say "writing HDD serial ID.... OK" once this is done, exit the service mode by keeping your finger on the power button for approx 10secs. your DVD recorder should now recognise the new HDD. if you don't follow this process, you will still have an HDD error message as your DVD recorder will have your old HDD installed and won't recognise your new one. given the amount of time since you posted this fault, you may still have the unit in question in which case i hope this solution is helpful, or for anyone else with the same problem.

Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem


Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.
