Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: DVD player
My Smasung DVD/VCR Combo stopped reading DVDs because of a dirty read
head. It started by only playing disks sometimes, and progressed to
never playing disks. I assumed it was a dirty laser lens so I bought a
lens cleaner set. Unfortunately my player wouldn't play the cleaner
So I took it apart and cleaned the laser lens manually with some isopropyl alcohol (the clenser that came with my cleaning disk), and a lens cloth (that came with my glasses). Just open the case (starting with the screws in the back) and remove the snap in cross panel that obscures the lens of the DVD portion. Put a drop of cleanser on the lens and gently wipe it with the cloth.
Oh and by the way, I take no responsibility if you break your own player while following my instructions. My own DVD player was far out of warranty at the time I cracked it open.

SOURCE: doesn't read dvd's
This problem is down to failure of the laser and an only be solved by replacing it. Samsung are aware of this fault but will only offer a free replacement if the unit is still covered by it's warranty.
They do offer a replacement service but charge £94 for it.

75 ohm coax cable generally does not carry 5.1 surround, you may need to see if your cable box has a 5.1 surround capability, the cable company will be able to help you on that .one other thing the receiver you are using (distribution) may need to have the source changed to the one from the cable box ie. fiber optic or coaxial (orange rca plug). red and white from the cable box does not carry 5.1 surround, only stereo. thanks for using fixya!

SOURCE: dvd does not load
some times its because of the CD (it cannot read the CD) all you have to do is try a different range of CD's to see what the prob is if it still doesnt read it may be coz of a scratched CD / Lens!!!!
