    Hi there,

    My Samsung N501 is experiencing technical difficulties. It will turn on, it displays the Samsung logo on my TV, and the display on the unit reads "LOAD", but that's it. The only button on the unit that seems to work is the power button. Same for the remote control.

    I took off the top to see if maybe the disc that is in there is stuck, but I don't really see a way to free the disc without causing some irreversible damage to the unit.

    Does anyone have any tips to bring this unit back to life? Or any tips on how to physically remove the disc inside without destroying the player? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Might be the disc reading laser. Try different discs including just regular DVDs.

    I am pretty sure there is nothing wrong with your NUON chips. It is likely the CD drives that are the culprit.

    So, found service manuals and downloaded for both samsung dvdn501 and dvdm101, parts list on the drive look identical, the service manual for the dvdm101, also seems to work for the 104 and the 105 which according to the thread in here about compatible drives work in the dvdn501. All signs pointing to the dvdm101 being compatible. Gonna buy one, try to make it work, if it does, gonna buy more. They seem more available to me than the m104 and m105.

    me and my son decided we liked the black cover on the Nuon player better, so we put it on there. Kept the Original
