HT-J4500 home cinema, cycling on and off repeatedly.


Although I've had it a good few years, never having a problem with it, my home cinema system is throwing a fit. It seemed to start when the blu ray/ dvd drawer wouldn't fully extend. I gently pulled it and inserted the disc and it seemed to work okay. The next day, when I switched it on, it now cycles through "LOAD", "No DISC" repeatedly, even when trying to use "D in", "AUX" or any other setting. I've disconected the drive from the rest of the unit, no difference. I've reset the unit whilst it was in stand by mode, nothing. It's not dirty inside, all very clean looking. Anyone know what's going on... Please help.

I've looked over the net all to no avail.

The same problem with my model HT-J4500 Home cinema. I'm from Madeira (Portugal). It started at 8:30 pm yesterday after noticing that he was not transmitting sound. I turned the device off and when I turned it on again it started to turn on and off repeatedly. Samsung, as a great brand, should have already given a more concrete answer, since the problem is happening with many equipment of their brand.

Lol, I'm not surprised! :smiling-face:


How they handle this situation will largely determine whether I buy another Samsung product in the future...


Same issue here in Slovakia with my HT-J4550. Worked fine in the morning,  then turned it off. And now in the afternoon, after turning on it keeps cycling through load and no disc. I can swith to BT or aux modes, but that is more or less useless.


I'm wondering if this happened due to a security failure. When was the last time that Samsung put out an update for older models like my 4500? If a hacker got control of the server that our systems call home to, they could have sent out a malicious update to brick our devices.

Has Samsungupset China or North Korea lately?


My HT -5500 is doing the same. If you find a solution please share!
