Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR
The above captioned DVD player DVD-M108 was purchased in 2002 in singapore. Of late whenever I load a vcd or Audio CD it says loading and I can see the CD running for a very long time. It is in loading position for a very long time and then it says " NO DISK ". Sometimes when I use a DVD it loads for a very long time say almost 7 yo 8 minutes and then the picture is seen. It never loads a vcd or audio cd. Kindly let me know wheather it is a problem with the pick-up lense or PCB. Thomas K. Abraham

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.

I think you have problem in DVD deck assembly the owner manual won't help you if still under warranty bring back to Samsung if out of warranty you can buy the DVD deck from Samsung and replace by yourself
Let me know if you need part number for the DVD deck

If all DVD's you try act the same, I would clean the read head. If that doesn't work, then drive needs to be serviced. Hopefully nobody smked cigarettes near the unit as that coats the optics. Clean the read head VERY carefully with a Q tip and 99% isoprophyl alcohol. Ensure that no fibers get stuck around the read head... it is VERY fragile.
If only one disk won't finish loading, then the disk itself is probably bad and the drive is OK.

Testimonial: "Very helpful. We had a small kitchen fire that put out a lot of smoke, so that was probably the problem"
We have had MAJOR problems with Samsung BluRay players.. 60% failure rate...
The only one I got to work after this kind of error was to download a new firmware version by the Internet, burn a CD and boot up with that. That fixed one out of five or six failures....
