Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: Samsung DVD-4600 DVD/VCR Player
My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner disk.
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

my suggestion from reading other forums is that these players sometimes have problems finalizing the disc.. you could try making a copy of the disc in a computer to see if this fixes the promlem or maybe media these use dvd+r and has a lot of compatibility issues with dvd players.

could be dirty laser, try a laser cleaning cd,you should get a little bottle with alcohol in to put on the little brushes, if that doesn't work could be the laser has given up the ghost

try a cotton swab and len cleaner. rub a small amount on the laser eye and then dry it off. do thus several times. be careful and don't put to much on the cotton swab. it don't take alot

First make sure the disc is compatible with the dvd player (CD-R+ , or CD-R - )
Second make sure the region code of the dvd you burned is compatible with the dvd region settings on your dvd player.
One of those two are preventing the disc from playing in your sansui player.
