Not much mechanical skill needed for the task ahead. there are three screws which holds the cover on the player. Here are a few steps that may help you with your power problem. There is a fuse located inside of the player at the power cord connection for safety purposes.
1. Remove all power from the combo player
2. Remove three screws from the rear of the player cover
3. Remove cover, as the cover is removed you will see the fuse at the end of the power cord attachment.
4. Remove the fuse and replace with same amperage or volts required. (replacements could be found at Radio Shack.)
5. Replace cover
6. Connect Power and check combo player

SOURCE: Samsung DVD HR735 doesn't recognise DVDs

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.

The DVD part of the machine keeps skipping and now just won't play any DVD's.

I push the VHS Cartridge in, it drops down to the play position, the front door opens, the tape comes out, it goes around the chrome wheel that is spinning, but it will not play, will not rewind, will not fast forward. It then shows "Error" and the machine shuts off, with the tape still around the chrome wheel, When I turn the machine back on, the VHS Cartridge ejects from the machine. This machine has been used very little, I loaned it to my Son In Law and it came back with the VHS Tape Deck not playing. I have the machine open, so I can see what it is doing.

I have a Sylvania 6240VE vcr. When I try to rewind a recorded tape, the vcr ejects the video. I was wanting to purchase a dvd/vcr combo, but the reviews for these items are awful. I tried a Magnavox combo....

When you put the player into rewind, is it at the beginning of the tape that it ejects? If so, it may be because you have the machine in timer mode. If you have a pre-recorded tape in a VCR, it will automatically eject the tape because you`ve not to record on a pre-recorded tape. I hope this help, Ian

Rewind/fast forward not working right

Rewinding while playing (usually it's called "review") is different from regular fast rewind. The machine drives the tape differently. This is usually done with a gear, but older machines used rubber belts or drive wheels. As the rubber wears out they slip against the parts they are supposed to drive and the tape doesn't move. If I remember correctly most Emersons had one rubber wheel called an idler that caused this trouble.

If you'd like to try repairing the machine yourself, try a Google search for your particular model and "won't rewind". There are a number of parts sites and forums that may have detailed information about what needs to be replaced and where on your model.

If you don't feel up to doing this yourself, you might want to consider replacing the machine rather than paying for repair. At today's labor rates - assuming you can find a shop that even still takes VCRs for repair - a new combo VCR/DVD machine might be only a few dollars more than the cost of repairing your current VCR.

Go-Video VCR Problem with accepting/ejecting tapes

As with any VCR, there are rubber parts inside that have become slick. This is a simple repair for any shop. The mechanisms are Samsung ones if I remember correctly. Expect a parts cost between $20-$40. Add in the local labor rate for the total cost. This is worth the repair cost as any replacement would not last anywhere near as long. This is also a normal occurrance as rubber parts harden with age. I have repaired many of these over the years.

VCR tape playback not good

Check your "tracking" If the tape played fine in the old machine, then tracking is the answer, provided that the new machine records good.

Video tape gets eaten on rewind

Does the machine play tapes well? Clear steady picture and all? No tracking bars? wavering sound? Tape chewing is generally a problem with a bad Capstan Pinch Roller, Associated symptoms are as above. Please do recheck or confirm if any of the above problems are also present.
