DVD's won't start in player

When trying to play a DVD they generally won't start. Player says "loading" for long time then says "this disc cannot be played---check the disc". Following that player may display "play", then in a second, or two, displays "stop" on the screen. Player may repeat all this several times, then it may suddenly start to play the DVD. This happens with almost all DVD's. I can put them in computer DVD player and they work fine. If I keep trying to restart the player, eventually, after about 10 to 20 tries, it will play the DVD with no problem. Last night I spent 1 1/2 hrs. getting a DVD to play. The DVD player is well cared for and has had less than a dozen DVD's played in it. A friend burned a DVD video of his anniv. party and it works fine. Will appreciate any help. Thanks you!! Suttie

    DVD won't play, says there is no disc; DVD is new, and the Samsung DVD-V2000 is about 6 years old....

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.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Samsung DVD-R130 will not load dvds, but will play CDs

I've gone through two of these machines in less than a year. They exhanged the first one because it stopped loading after a few weeks...the second one stopped loading dvd's after about 6 months. Now I'm out the money. Sounds like they must know this is a defect.

SOURCE: DVD won't play

Its Sounds as if your DVD went kaput this tends to be a problem with most combination players usually the VCR goes first also you may need to run a cleaning CD made for DVD players maybe that will help.

SOURCE: I have a region 2 samsung dvd player. All of a

What follows is mostly generic advice which applies to the vast majority of DVD players which I've tinkered with.

Your problem normally only happens if someone else has played a different region coded DVD on your machine. Normally you get seven chances to reset the region code before the machine locks itself permanently to one of them. before the changes are permanent the player will usually ask you if you want to change the region code when you try to play a disc from the wrong region.

Before doing anything else it's worth asking other members of your household if they have recently used the player, especially if you know anyone may have been using imported discs. If they've used up all of the region changing opportunities then hacking the machine might not work at all.

If you use a search engine you can search for DVD-P181 hack and these will guide you through the process to make your DVD player a multi-region machine, but there are three different hacks which I've seen for the same player so you may need to try them all.

Won`t play dvd`s.try a cleaning disc no luck!possible dvd diode gone?any help please.Nigel...

Hi Nigel,
There are three reasons for discs not playing.
First, if the set has been lying for some time, the loading belt becomes lose and the loading is not complete. The result is no disc play.
Second, there is dust on the lense. Again the result is no disc play.
Third, the lense unit has gone bad or weak. Here also the result is no disc play.

When trying to operate the dvd player it states no read disk when there is a disk in the player

Yes, the DVD player will start with "loading" while it tries to read the disc and figure out what kind of disc it is.

The new-er players will read all sorts of discs, but I have an older one that will only read DVD and MP3 discs.

Any DVD player should be able to load and play an original DVD, but not all will comply if it is a backup copy of your DVD.

If your player refuses to recognize the original DVD, it's time to get rid of it. The cost of repairing it will exceede the cost of a new one.

Samsung dvd player does not read dvd disc.it reads "no disc".

I also have a Samsung Dvd player. If it is a dvd you burned yourself it may not recognize the disc. If you have loaded a purchased or rented disc and it still won't load, I would say the head is dirty or the unit is defective. I would try a head cleaner first.available at most electronics stores If that doesn't work you probably will need to send it in for repair.
good luck

Player won't load any discs

I don't have a solution at this time. I have the same DVD player and mine stopped working this past weekend. It is doing the same thing as yours. I opened the case and loaded a disc and watched the mechanism. The disc won't spin. if you tap the disc it will start spinning and load and start playing. I thought I had fully fixed it. It will load most times but now the video and audio stutters as if the discs is spinning at varying rates.

Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem

Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.
