This is happening to me for the second time on the same unit. The
first time, I brougt it back to the store and the GeekSquad took the
cover off while I was there to watch. He demonstrated that when
inserting the DVD it would try to load, but the DVD would not spin.
The tech manually spun the DVD in clock-wise direction and the DVD
"caught on" and the DVD loaded successfully.
This was not the recommended approach for loading DVDs, and it did not
make loading start to work again (except by manually spinning the DVD
again). Also note that this situation seems to "degrade", not improve
Fortunately, the first time I was able to get the unit fixed under
warranty ... I am not sure what I am going to do about it this time.
I hope this helps some of you out there experiencing the same problem.

Does the disc spin?
If not you have my problem spindle motor suspected faulty if the disc spins then its not being read, faulty lazer assy Try cleaning the lazer using dry brush disc philips do a good one and also clean the disc you are trying to play if it still doesnt work its a fault
I also have a Samsung r136 but have rarely used the DVD player. It went past the warranty and has given up the ghost. It will take discs in but I just get a spinning sound and it won't play anything For a while if I reloaded the tray it would work on perhaps the fifth, sixth, then tenth etc. time. Now it's shagged and won't recognise any disc I put in. Anyone got a suggestion?
Hello, First be sure your using the correct disc DVD+ or DVD- RW etc.
I would recomend using high quality discs as players/recorders are very picky about cheap media. Try using Imation name brand discs. They read well in most anything. If it has worked fine & then started having this problem I would first check to see if your using the same discs that have always worked with it & if so then you may want to open the unit & clean the laser lens with a cotton swab lightly soaked in rubbing alcohol. Especially if it has been smoked around or is in a dusty environment.
