Malfunctioning DVD player-does recognize disk

DVD-V2000 Samsung will not play disk. Gives message "This disk can not be played. Please check disk"

I started to play a disk when it would stop and start again. It became more frequent so i thought the disk was no good. I switched to another disk movie and now all i get is the above message. Does anyone have any ideas? This is a combo player and the video tape player side works fine.

Try a cd or dvd player cleaner disc with the little brushes. Run it for an hour or so, and if that doesn't work, run it overnight. I saved a dvd player this way.

If you're getting this message, it is most likely to be the lense. In which case it will probably be too late to use a cleaning CD as the DVD wont recognize it.
You could try cleaning the lense with a cleaning alcohol yourself if you know what you're doing.

If the message only comes up with some Dvd's then there may be a compatibility problem.
Have a look on the back of the dvd disk case to find out what region it is. Then just find out what regions your player reads

Hope this helps
