My unit reboots automatically at different intervals. Sometimes you can watch 5 minutes of TV and sometimes 30 before the picture freezes, pixilates and then the system reboots. Everything works fine when the system is up. I tried resetting the system, unplugging it, and have checked to make sure that it is not over-heating. Any other ideas?
"I had the exact same problem tonight. I put in a DVD and it locked my
Toshiba RS-TX20 up. It simply wouldn't respond to anything but
unplugging. Then it went into this infinite loop of trying to power up.
I finally got it to boot:
Hold the eject button on the unit continuously while it boots up (be
patient!). It didn't open the tray until a couple minutes into the
powering up process. After I took out the disc, it booted up normally
at the next try.
I am guessing that there's a very small window during the booting
process that the dvd drive isn't locked and you have to push the eject
button in that small window to get the tray open. Since we don't know
when the drive is unlocked, the best bet is to hold down the eject

Stop trying to turn on the set. You are causing more damage. The hissing sound you are hearing is either a High Voltage Transformer on the SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply) indicating a short somewhere in the set or some capicitors that have shorted out. Also there can be a CRT that is leaking cooling fluid onto the Main bd or the Power/Deflection bd or both bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.
