Question about Samsung HT-DB600 System

My DVD Player is skipping all of my DVD's...

It doesn't matter if the DVD is brand new or 4 years old, my DVD player is skipping all of them. About a month ago, I took the cover off and vacuumed out the inside of the DVD player really good for the 1st time since I owned it. That seemed to work for 3 weeks, now it is back to skipping every DVD. Please Help! Is there a replacement part that I can repair myself? I'm desperate!!! Tim

    Where do I find an "optical unit (laser) with cleaning liquid?" Thanks!

    Your problem will not be fixed with a cleaner. After 5 years, I am experiencing the same problem including DVD frerzes or not loading at all. I have searched in vain for a solution (maybe laser alighment), but NONe of the forums I've found address a solution, only LOTS of people experiencing the same problem.

    I am having the same problem on both of my DVD players. Both are DVD/VHS combos. One is a very new Sony (less than 2 months old) and the other is a Broksonic that is about 5 years old. I can accept these problems on the older, generic one, but not the new Sony. I actually own one of the DVD player cleaners mentioned, and when it works at all, it usually only lasts a day or two. I am tired of not being able to watch a DVD all the way through and having to stop, open the dvd player, wait a while, and then restart the dvd and use choose scene to get back to where I was (and hope it doesn't start skipping again). Maybe I should start finding movies that are less than an hour long because that seems to be the limit for most movies. Does anyone out there have any ideas BESIDES cleaning?

DVD player skips and freezes

you have a defective dvd player. if it is only 3 months old take it back in exchange or repair under warranty. it all depends whom you purchased the item from. you could try running a cleaning disk, but chances are the players needs to be repaired, or replaced. Don't be surprised, i've bougth several in the last couple of years, two i had to take back the same day and exchange them. All of these electronics are made so cheap, it takes two or three units to get one good one. Try to stay away from RCA, Panasonic, and LiteOn.

The laser lens could be dirty. A cleaner disc with brushes does the trick.
Or the laser could be off track

All dvds skips evan brand new ones

Return the unit to the store which you purchased it from. You have an internal problem with the scanner (led) You can first try to clean the led this could be your problem. They sell lens cleaning dvd disks. try it, you have nothing to loose. If this does not work, just bring it back.

Make sure that DMA is checked for the dvd player.


What program are you using to read (play) the DVD?

If you are using Windows media Player and Nero 6 you need to:


Go to

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter\ and
Don't delete these files!
For safety reason create New folder and move files in it.


Try this and let us know . Thanks
