20 Most Recent Samsung DVD-V90K Multisystem DVD/VCR Questions & Answers

If the dvds which are "all regions" are recorded from a computer, your dvd player may not play them. I assume the dvds which have a region code have been professionally prepared. Sometimes, the cheap dvd players will play anything while the more sophisticated ones will give you trouble unless everything is just perfect.

While looking through some forum posts i found the way to fix the problem. It takes a bit of fiddling around but it does work... I tried it out last night.

Firstly you need to put a DVD of a different region into your player and wait for it to start to read the DVD before you commence the procedure... it takes a bit to get the timing right.

when the DVD can't be read it, on screen Eject Disc will come up

Press Repeat & Hold 3 Seconds (it may work using either repeat button on the bottom, i tried both.

Press 76884
After entering those 5 digits, you should see a number in the top left corner of the screen corresponding to the current region (4 being Australia region)

Press 9 for "auto-region" mode ie. Region Free
Turn Off Machine
and there you have it. The timing is crucial so start trying as soon as the DVD is in. It took me 5 goes before it worked.

You will notice that it may take a bit longer for the other Region DVDs to be read then normal but it's only a few seconds longer.

Check your DVD player's color system, most multi system dvd player has to be set(PAL or NTSC) manually, NTSC for American standard. Look for this button could be a mechanical switch at the back or at the menu. Some machine need to reboot after setting. Hope this helps

Get an LG.. went through TOO many Samsungs.!!

That's impossible unless is it possessed by the devil. If it is unplugged, there is no power to it. It has no internal battery apart from a tiny one on the motherboard to keep its memory. It is more likely to be a carbon monoxide alarm or similar. See the link.

could be a few issues to consider. The video processing card is faulty. hold a flashlight close to the screen and see if you can see the images. if yes, your powerboard has a failure and the backlight has failed. either way, get a repairman to attend to it.

The backlight is controlled by the powerboard.

It is possible the harmonic balancer/dampener on the engine has given up the ghost. Worst case would be the transmission torque converter is acting up.

You should call 1-800-samsung and they will tell you what to do or who to call to get it repaired under samsungs' warranty. It sounds like the power supply board is defective.
