Machine is about one week old!
Nothing in manual as to what causes this message

If it's only a week old, I would take it back to the point of purchase. Most stores will do 30 days on electronics.
System error is a report from within the recorder. Most likely with its flashed software (internal programming)

I went and checked the reviews on this unit, and what you are reporting is very consistant with what other people have said. It runs about 50% works great, the other half had nothing but problems. I've made it a point on any electronics purchase, do as much research on it as needed before buying it. And I usually look for the negative reports first, and what they report was bad about it. It has saved me from a number of headaches.

LG DVD recorder not playing DVD


When a unit does that it can be a fingerprints on a disc not letting it read the disc and or also that it is not finalized. Can also be a disc format that does not work on unit. Some units only work with either -R or +R and not both. Hope this helps

Sounds like you recorded from a camcorder attached to AV2 (front of DVD player). Press the STOP button, then open the menu and finalize the disk.

"Recorded" or "Blank"? this is the Problem!


Check to see what format you are able to play on you Laptop
Sometimes they only work on some formats. Also make sure you are not recording in progressive scan

Recording on DVD-R with Samsung DVD-R155


Heating issue. If you remove the cover and touch the processor chip - you will not be able to keep your finger there for more than a second (that is if your really want to use this crude method to test the temp).

I have taken measurement and its around 50C. Thats a lot for no heatsink or cooling fan.

If you have the unit in a cabinet with no air flow - you will not be able to use this unit for more than 3 months and up to a year. Best to have it on top of a cabinet or in one with an open front and back to allow some airflow - or just anywhere where its in the open.

Samsung has another unit - the AR650, which I believe is discontinued - which for some strange reason has realized this concern. My guess its a whole different team of designers (or at least some folks with some brains) and added a cooling fan into the unit. Its the same exact case and motherboard as the 135, and 155. There are absolutely no issues with it rejecting disc's - even after a year of use for some users.

In Summary:

Solution 1 - Place it in the open
Solution 2 - Remove case and drill holes to the topside
Solution 3 - Remove case and add a fan
Solution 4 - Remove case and add a heatsink over proc (will still need to drill holes over heatsink..
Solution 5 - We can all complain to Samsung and have them recall the units
