Thank you Mitchell for your clear, concise directions and photos. I was able to dismantle my Samsung DVD-VCR player Model DVD-V2000. It recently quit playing DVD’s, showing a “No Disc” message. It will play CD’s just fine. I cleaned the laser and reinstalled but still no DVD, just CD’s will play. I like the machine and may look into a replacement DVD assembly if I can find one for a reasonable price. Otherwise I’ll upgrade to a new combo unit with the latest bells and whistles. Best wishes, Bill

I successfully fixed the "No Disc" issue on a DVD/VCR model DVD-V5000. Your guide helped and it was basically the same process. I used a foam tip (well a makeup applicator to be more precise) instead of a cotton tip, because it is less likely to leave anything behind like cotton strands. All works now, thanks!
