Question about Samsung DVD-V5650

1 Answer

I have a Samsung DVD-v5650 which has always worked great. A couple of days ago, it suddenly stopped playing dvd's. We purchased a new dvd and it will start to play, then it will get choppy and show those digital, messed-up squares in the picture. Finally the picture will scramble and it will stop altogether. I also tried an older dvd that worked fine last week and had the same problem. Is this a fatal problem with the machine, can it be cleaned, or can something else be done? Thanks!

That sounds like a classic case of DVD laser and spindle motor failure (traverse unit). The squares you mention are pixels, the picture pixelates and breaks up, then freezes (caused by voltage changes in the laser and the motor speed). Being as this is not a DVD recorder, it is probably not economical to repair. You can try carefully cleaning the laser assembly (tips on how to do this may be found elsewhere on FixYa or similar forums) and/or spindle hub. If that does not solve the issue, sadly, you would be reduced to just the VCR part (or you could purchase a new player since the cost of such would be cheaper than repairs to this - assuming parts were available).

Not the best news, but you can try the simple in-home cleaning of the unit first before taking any further action.

BD-P1600 will play DVD-R with no problems up untill the last chapter of a movie then the picture freezes up and wont finish playing. is there a solution? Updated firmware about 3 weeks ago.


Either the Laser needs to be cleaned or it needs to be replaced. To clean, purchase a DVD player cleaner that uses fluid. roughly 20.00 run it a couple times and test. If it works, great. If it doesn't, replace the unit. It's cheaper than the repair. Hope this helps
