Question about Samsung DVD-R130 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Samsung Player will not recongnize DVD

Ok...I'm tired of buying new electronics because everything is throw away-junk. I want to be able to fix it myself. Hope you can help. As with many problems that I have seen here my DVD-R130 will not recognize any DVD. The funny thing is that if I let it sit for a while somtimes it will play a movie. I am referring only to purchased DVDs nothing that I have recorded. Any help will be appreciated. BTW, I have 2 other cheap players that do the same thing. Thanks!

    My Dvd-R130 appears to be recording but when I try to playback I get an error message saying to check the disk. Sometimes when I try to record it will only record for about 7 seconds then it automatically stops and turns itself off. This recorder is under a year old. When I called Samsung they told me the parts were covered under warranty but it would cost nearly $70.00 for labor to repair it, and I would have to mail it. Please help if you have any suggestions.

I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.

Used Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while). Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and format using DVD-V (VR did not work).

I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.

Brady ID PAL Thermal Label Printer Won't power up new batteries or on power adapter is it junk? not power up. Trash or Fix?

Someone with electronic troubleshooting experience will need to look at it. You might spend as much to fix it as buy a new one. Don't throw it away, someone will buy it like that on eBay or Craigslist. Sell it "as-is", disclose " will not power on".

Cyber home dvd player

The laser has most likely failed. These are "throw away" devices since they are rediculously cheap. Buy a new Samsung or Sony for under $100 at Best Buy or Walmart.

The screen on our dvd player will not work

Sorry to say that those Cyberhome DVD players are basically "Throw-Aways" (junk). The good news is that you can buy a DVD player at Walmart for about $25. I believe that would be your best solution.

MVD2050 will not turn on. We have a DVD stuck in it. We turned the power off and back on after 60 minutes but nothing happens.

Hello K4, hi you can manually get the disk out, but you need to remove the cover. As for the power thing, you have a power supply problem, would you like to service it yourself or call a technician, If you will service it yourself, this are the things you should check:
  1. fuse
  2. open wirings
  3. shorted or over heating rectifier diodes and voltage regulator
  4. bulging filter capacitors
  5. Switching regulator IC, check for the output pulse using a scope.
  6. replace the bad parts, then test.

Can not read dvd format

The player uses a different laser to read dvd's in respect to cd's. Either there's dust on the laser (or lens) and it needs cleaning or the dvd laser unit is busted - it can't be fixed, junk it and buy a new one.

Smoking DVD player

Throw it away an buy a new one. WalMart's dvd's and all their electronics stuff are produced in china without any quality control and from the cheapest components. They aren't even worth repair.
Buy a branded DVD (SAMSUNG, Sony) to avoid future problems.

The center piece that attaches to the capstan of our Polaroid DVD player has gone missing.(Model PDV-0700) I suspect that it came off when a DVD was removed, and probably ended up at the movie rental...

Yes you can retrieve a comparable peice from an old junk CD or DVD drive of a PC. Ask around somebody has a broken one you could take apart.
