It looks to me to be an old machine as I see listings for that model in 2006, now there could be a few reasons firstly it may need a firmware update which will enable it to "recognise discs" made later than it (service engineer).
The laser may be poor, playing is less stressful than recording or it may need a general service, their mechanisms and/or optic slides get dusty sticking to old lubricant slowing response times so the machine goes into "timeout" or just gives up, some have rubber belts which stretch.
It comes down to cost of repair versus new one? you could try a lens cleaner disc (a disc with a bit of fuzz stuck on it) but I have found these have varied sucess and a service clean is better with a suitable liquid.

Hope this helps.........

Check its settings. It might be the problem. Refer its user manual for details.

Check its tuner. It might need replacement.

Yes this is your problem that you no longer receive an Analogue Signal.

This unit doesn't contain a Digital Freeview Tuner so you will need to purchase some sort of External Digital Freeview Box to connect to this unit to enable you to continue recording on it.

No recording, open close error.

  1. Open - close error, can not load dvd and the led is blinking.
  2. After replace Main PCB, Loader and HD, conditions still same as before.
Follow this method:

a. DVD condition on --> Loading.
b. Press cancel button on remote until ST-BY appear on display set.
c. Press cursor up or down on remote until CD-UP appear on display Set.

Damage loader can cause open-close error and error on HD.

Does the unit show a clock display - or a standby light on the front? if not, then the PSU is likely to be the cause, with several faulty components, including electrolytic capacitors. If there is a standby LED, but it won't go further, the unit is in protection mode; again, from the (suspected) power supply.

You can opt to visually inspect the condition of the PSU (assuming the unit is out of warranty, and if so, have a look at the electrolytics - many may have bulged/leaked), or, if it still has a warranty, submit to a service centre for a quote on likely repair/parts costs, although I don't think it would be economical.

It is up to you as to how much further you wish to go with this - but keep in mind the possible expense involved along with availability of parts/boards. These days manufacturers lean toward board replacement rather than individual parts replacement/repair.

the problem is as a result of wrong connection.

Please give me the list of your device and the make and model of your TV so that I can put you through. How do you want the connection be be like?

I look for ward to your reply.

Bye for now.

DVDs come in different versions.
Try using the -R DVDs. Once your DVD recorder finalizes the DVDs they should on any DVD palyer.

Check your manual to find out the finalizing method for your DVD recorder.

I hope this solution is helpful. Let me know.

It sounds like the laser in the DVD player is getting weak or has alignment problems. If the DVD that did not play in the samsung but played in others. I would tend to think its not alignment since you mentioned that it's been repaired before. Chances are the laser is weak but still within spec in order to prevent replacement. When My dvd players start to go they will generally stop recognizing burned media and thats your clue to replace it. They are very inexpensive to replace nowadays and have almost become disposable items. Probably not what you wanted to hear but it sounds like's like this player wasnt made very well.

Repair is never worth it in dvd recorders. Call Samsung and see if they have a replacement flat rate for you. If not then the unit will need to be replaced, as most service centers don't know how to repair cd/dvd recorders and even when they do there will be another issue.
