Question about Samsung HT-DS610 System

1 Answer

Unable to read/play DVDs

My HT-DS610 has become selective in the movies that it will load and playback. At first I could watch all my movies and then over the corse of a couple of weeks, it started to not load them. I know it's not the DVDs because I can still watch them through my PS2. I've searched Samsungs website, but they don't have a thing about this model other than the user manual. Is anyone else having or had this problem and is there a way to correct it other than using a sledge hammer to vent my frustration and purchasing a different brand of home theater??

    Yes, my friend has had this same problem from day one. not just with DVD's but CD's as well. It will start to play then just stop or start to skip, -or- it will not track at all. -Along with that for some reason the system just shuts down for no reason at all. It just turns it'self off.

    Since this has happend from day one it can't be the laser going bad, and he has been using a lens cleaner with it so there should not be any dust on the lens eaither.

    HT-DS610B - Same problem w/selective DVD's for about year. Latest ones Pirates of Carribean & 3:10 to Yuma. Sometimes only gives blue screen w/ Disc Error, after playing w/remote buttons have gotten as far as the first 4 minutes but has several short freezes, screen skips and shows the english subtitles at the bottom of the screen. All these DVDs played fine in my Pioneer DMR-ES40V and my old Pioneer DV-434 (although I have to grab the tray & hold it open to drop in the DVD). Done the cleaner bit but no luck and it has only had little use until this winter.

    Same symptoms: difficulty reading DVDs eventually progressed to no DVD operability, even though audio CDs work on most occasions.

    The stated solution of lens cleaning besg a question:

    if optics are effectively cleaned but symptoms persist, is it really acceptable that a laser diode in such a device be so near MBTF in regular use? I don't think so.

    What type of discs are playable on this DVD player? DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW or DVD+RW?

    The instruction book doesn't say and sometimes I get "No Disc."

You may have a dirty laser lens on the slider assembly. If you clean this little lens, and the problem still happens, it is an indication that the laser is getting weak and it may be time to start looking around for a new player/recorder. Good Luck

The standard version has Windows Vista® Home Basic Edition SP1. This version do not have native support for decoder to watch DVD movies. Install a good DVD player like WinDVD or any other DVD player software. This will install the necessary decoder. Once this is done even if the installed trial version expire, your windows media player will still play the movies. However, if you like the software, make it fully licensed version on-line.

Samsung HT-X50 DVD Audio Problem

I had this same problem and checked all of my cables and wires. Come to find out one of the wires that connected to the central audio speaker (the one that the audio track comes from) was unplugged. I plugged it in and that fixed it! My audio track is back! So make sure that all of the speaker cables are properly connected! That might be the source of your troubles!
