Look carefully at the buttons and see if one of the rubber buttons is slightly pressed in, ever so slightly!!! look ever so carefully to see of the OUTER rim of the rubber button is off the plastic rim of the R\C [ remote control] usually PUSHED IN at the RIM ot the rubber button. That causes a short and confuses the r.c in two diferent directions.

Wanted steps to unlock region code for Samsung DVD-C370

  • Make sure there is no disc in the player.
  • Turn on the player (you can use remote control or front panel, it doesn't matter)
  • Wait for "No Disc" message to appear on the TV screen.
  • Press the Repeat button on remote (plain, not A-B).
  • Press the correct sequence of buttons of remote according to the original region code of your player (it's on the sticker on the back panel of the player).
  • FF = fast forward, FR = fast rewind.
  • Region 2 players: FF, FR, FF, UP, DOWN
  • Region 3 players: FF, PLAY, FR, UP, LEFT
  • Region 4 players: FR, PLAY, DOWN, DOWN, RIGHT
  • Region 5 players: FF, UP, DOWN, STOP, RIGHT
  • Region 6 players: LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, PLAY, LEFT
  • If you pressed the correct sequence, a small white number 0 will appear somewhere on the top right of the screen.
  • The white number 0 of the same font and size as the "No Disc" message, so don't confuse with the red "not allowed" sign that would appear when you press a function that's not available.
  • Turn the player off and on again, then you can pop in a DVD of any region and watch immediately.

Remote control intermittent. remote power on button slow and tedious. volume works ok, but channel up and down does not work at all. to change channels mus use numberics. play, stop, ff rev works okay....

take apart the remote and remove the rubber button pad.look at the back of the buttons,the carbon has worn off or got full of oil.take a q tip with alcohol and clean the buttons.if they are worn off,take a small piece of aluminum foil and glue it to the button .it is small 1/8 inch diameter or so.if you look at the pc board,you will see 2 sets of lines for each button that do not touch.looks like a small maze.what happens when you touch the button is that the carbon connects the 2 lines.eventually alot of force is needed to make contact work,but it completely wears out the button contact pad surface.Gluing a piece of foil to the button will make it work.i have done it a hundred times on remotes with no replacement...

Need Comcast Remote Code for Samsung DVD-V1000

I just programmed my comcast remote for my Samsung v1000, My comcast remote is very similar to the 3-in-1, but has a few more buttons on it (on the Comcast site, my remote looks like the DVR 3 remote, but I don't have a DVR). The code I used was 21044.

By using this code, the play/stop/rewind/ff buttons all work. I didn't test the record button. The Info button worked as "Display" and Exit button to work as Audio Source (HiFi/Mono). However, the Volume and Channel controls did not work.

I hope this helps.
