Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

I cannot open it up in order to clean the lens. I've removed two screws, one from each side, but I must be missing something since there are no more screws that I can see, and I can't open it.

    I need the part of the manual that will tell me how to get access to the dvd player lens.

  • khaggerty927 Apr 26, 2011

    Okay, I got in and did the lens cleaning, the DVD player worked for one movie. So I try a 2nd movie a couple of days ago, and now I'm stuck wjth the same problem. All I get is a "Loading Disc" message, and it stays there. Commercial lens cleaning disc has not worked.

    So what do I do now?

Hi There,

There should be another screw at the back at roughly top dead centre. I've ringed it in red in the exploded diagram:

Hope this helps. I have a service manual for this player. I can upload it somewhere for you if required but it's broken into separate parts so it's several downloads. If you need further assistance, please reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

    I'm uploaded the service manual to rapidshare for you:



    http://rapidshare.com/files/454845374/DV...



    Had to zip the file to save on number of uploads and downloads. If you can't unzip it, let me know and I'll upload them individually - or the relevant ones anyway.



    Rapidshare download instructions:



    1. Click on the link above. Rapidshare download page will open in a new browser window

    2. Scroll to the bottom right-hand corner of the download page and click on "Slow Download"

    3. Wait for the timer to count down to zero (usually about 30-60seconds)

    4. Click on "Download Now!"

    5. Save the file to your PC and "unzip" it.



    When you've unzipped the folder, you need the file ending with _CH3 (625kb).



    Page 8 (DVD Mechanical Parts) will show you the exploded view of the DVD deck. You need to lever the 4 clips outwards, (2 on each side), to remove the cover (H212):


    You should then be able to see the pick-up unit and the lens, circled in red:










    Download the service manual then let me know if you need further assistance. I would always recommend using a commercial lens cleaning disc rather than opening up the player and cleaning the lens manually. The laser and pick-up are very sensitive and this should only be done if absolutely necessary and is at your own risk. Use a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol to clean the lens.

How to remove lens from Olympus SP-550uz or Olympus SP-560uz


This cleaning process is very delicate and sensitive. Cleaning lens should be done by authorized or pro camera technician. I suggests you to bring it to the nearest cam service center because they have appropriate tools to open the camera and properly clean it. A single failure or error on cleaning it by yourself might give fatal result to your camera.

Solution for nikon "lens Cover Error"


Nikon Coolpix S5/S6 “LENS COVER ERROR”
 
In this document I have given a solution to fix the problem most of the Nikon coolpix S5/S6 cameras face. At power –on it give an error “Lens Cover Error”
 
Before opening the camera I would suggest you to take a snap of each and every step. Because it will helpful while you are fixing the screws back. There are many screws which has to be opened. So better take a photo of each and every step.
 
IMP NOTE: Remove the battery before opening the camera. Use some antistatic strip to prevent the components from getting damaged Or Keep your feet touched to the floor such that your body remains grounded.
 
Follow the below steps in the given order:
 
Step 1> Remove the screws at the bottom of camera
4e12f9d.jpg

Step 2>Remove the side screws

Step 3> Remove the side screws as given below .

Step 4>Lift the cover and remove the cables which connects the switches to the camera. These cables are fitted in a small connector. There is a tiny lock (present for few connectors)  on the connector, which on pulling it across its hinges, will open and the cable comes out easily. You need not pull it forcefully.

Step 19> Below figure shows the stepper motor used for lens cover
91b5685.jpg

Step 20> Below figure shows the stepper motor which is used to control the lens cover. There is a small white switch on this motor. This Switch is used by the camera to detect whether the camera lens cover has is open or closed. When we switch on the camera the lens cover (which is shown in step 17) opens and in turn it presses the white switch show below. If the lens cover is unable to press this switch, then the error “Lens cover Error” flashes on the camera.
I would suggest 3 different ways to solve this problem.
1>     Fix some glue on the white switch shown in the below figure, such that it remains pressed forever. Because of this, camera will never give the error message. Remove the lens cover (which is shown in step 17) forever. You don’t  need it anymore. Now fix the below stepper motor back in the camera and follow the steps in the reverse order to fix the camera components.
2>     Buy a new stepper motor from the market. Its quite cheap. Fix it back in the camera. Here you need not remove the lens cover. Follow the steps in the reverse order to fix the camera.
3>     In this method you can open the stepper motor to fix the problem. Now follow the steps given below.

Step 21>
Remove the screws as shown below.
71066aa.jpg

Step 22> Remove the gears one-by-one. See the placements because you have place them again in the right order.

Step 23>
ef8bb9c.jpg

Step 24> The gear shown below is the culprit. Remove it. There is a tension spring present inside this gear. Do remember the position of this gear before removing this gear. Its placement is very important.
921f969.jpg

Step 25> The spring is shown below.
c6e7841.jpg

Step 26> Now the switch shown in step 20 does not get pressed because of reduced tension of the spring. Increase the tension of this spring by pulling it in opposite direction. Place the spring back in the gear and follow the steps in the reverse order to solve the problem. Now because of increased tension of the spring, the lens cover will be able to Press the switch shown in fig 20.

Sorry to sound dumb but where do I find the lasar reader in order to clean it?? Thanks for your help


For Original (the big Fat one)
    • 1 Turn the PlayStation 2 over to remove the screw covers. Use the flat head screwdriver to remove the plugs that cover the screws. This reveals several Philips screws. Do not remove them yet. They must be unscrewed in a certain order so that the PS2 opens up properly.
    • 2 Remove the small screws near the control ports, powerboard and DVD drive using a Phillips screwdriver.
    • 3 Remove the long screws from the upper right section. This enables you to remove the cover.
    • 4 Flip the PlayStation 2 over to open it up. Before opening it, ensure the PS2 has had adequate cooldown time. Wait at least one hour after playing the game station before continuing. You do not want to burn yourself on the hot elements within.
    • 5 Open the PS2 carefully so as not to damage the ribbon inside the console. Lift up the case gently and slide the cover off. Notice the big black box that contains the laser lens and DVD drive unit you need to clean.
    • 6 Locate four black, small screws holding the black box down. Remove the screws using a Philips screwdriver.
    • 7 Lift up gently on the cover of the DVD drive. This fully exposes the laser lens.
    • 8 Dip one cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Gently rub around the edge of the lens with the swab. Look for any greasy residue that may be there and remove it. Remove any fuzz. Use gentle pressure so you do not damage the PlayStation's lens.
    • 9 Take a dry cotton swab and dry off any liquid left behind. Ensure there are no cotton fibers left behind on the lens.
    • 10 Reassemble the PlayStation 2. Work backwards from the way in which you disassembled it.
Tips & Warnings
  • Opening up your PS2 voids your warranty. Do so at your own risk. If you are not comfortable working on your PlayStation 2, have it cleaned at an electronics store's service center.
And for the Slim
    • 1 Open the lid to the PS2's disc tray.
    • 2 Spray the lens with a few quick, short bursts of compressed air, keeping the nozzle several inches away from the lens.
    • 3 Apply a small amount of lens cleaner or isopropyl alcohol to one end of a cotton swab.
    • 4 Rub the damp end of the cotton swab against the lens in a gentle, circular motion, for roughly 10 seconds. Be incredibly careful and use a miniscule amount of pressure so you don't accidentally scratch the lens.
    • 5 Dry the lens using the opposite end of the cotton swab.

System Error (Zoom)


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

    I want to repair my camera myself,I'm very good with my hand and technical things.


    I just finished unsuccessfully repairing my FE-280. It had a sticking lens. I got the lens assembly out to try to clean it, but there is no way to get inside the zoom mechanism. Replacement lens assemblies are available to buy but I'm not a fan of Olympus mechanical reliability now.

    Take off the obvious screws to get the back off. Don't try to remove the front. Note where every screw goes and keep them in order. Work the top of of the back cover off by rocking it. Unsnap the LCD from its clips and pull out the flex cable connectors. Remove the screws holding the perimeter of the black plastic lens. assembly. Beware that there may be a stored charge on the flash. located behind the flash and close to the screw by the lens assembly flex cable.

    By the way, an initial cleaning by using a shop vac on the lens from the outside while opening and closing it worked for a while.

    E18 pops up


    An E18 error refers to a problem with the lens. Generally you receive this error if the lens is stuck, which often happens if you drop your camera while the lens is extended or if something like sand or dirt gets inside the lens barrel/gears. Your situation, however, sounds different since the lens seems to extend before giving the E18 error.

    If the lens is fully extending before giving the E18 error, you most likely have a problem with the lens sensor located around the O-ring inside your lens barrel... either the sensor itself is damaged or the little plastic piece on the O-Ring that triggers the sensor is broken. If that's the case, there is nothing you can do yourself unless you feel like taking apart the entire camera and finding a replacement piece.

    If the lens only comes out a little bit and is not fully extending before giving the E18 error, it sounds like something is making your lens get stuck. If you've recently been to the beach or a park where there is sand, try using a can of compressed air and blow it into the little gaps in the lens barrel... you may be able to blow the sand/dirt out, solving your problem. If the air doesn't work and you feel comfortable taking apart your camera, you can get to the gearbox and manually retract the lens by following my instructions below. Otherwise, I'd suggest a repair shop.

    WARNING: TAKING APART YOUR CAMERA VOIDS THE WARRANTY AND CAN BE DANGEROUS! The capacitor that charges the flash can still hold enough voltage to give you a massive shock even when the battery has been removed for some time. Please only attempt to disassemble the camera if you feel comfortable doing so. I accept no liability for anything that happens should you follow my instructions below.

    In order to open the camera you will need to remove six screws on the outer casing (2 where the wriststrap ties on, 2 on the opposite side, and 2 on the bottom). After unscrewing all 6 screws, pull the back and front casings off from the bottom out, as there is a clip-hinge on the top next to the shutter button that needs to disengage before you can fully remove the casing. Once the casing is removed, there is one screw holding in the flash apparatus, on the side. Remove it and carefully bend back the metal cage around the flash apparatus and pull it up. The flash will still be attached to the camera with a pair of wires (yellow and black) and a ribbon cable... leave those in place. Please be CAREFUL when handling the flash because the capacitor (the big black thing under the flash) can hold enough voltage to give you a severe shock even with the battery removed. Underneath where the flash was you will see a multi-tiered black piece of plastic... this is the gearbox cover. Remove the three screws from the cover and carefully lift the cover off the gearbox. Inside will be a motor shaft and 4 gears (2 white, 2 black). Remove the BIG black gear closest to the lens. Then temporarily replace the gearbox cover. With the big black gear removed, the lens should freely glide in and out if you push or pull on it. Do this several times in order to clean out any gunk that may have gotten into the grooves of the lens barrel. Then, open up the gearbox, replace the black gear, and screw the gearbox cover back on. Replace the flash into the metal cage and screw it back in. Finally, put the metal outer casing back on the camera and, before screwing it in, try to turn it on. Hopefully it will work again and you can screw everything back in. If not, your problem will require significantly more disassembly.
