Depending on where you bought it (especially if second hand) it may be from a different region to the one you are in. Sometimes it is possible to hack the player to play your region (or all regions) though Samsung is one of the brands that this is very hard to do to. Assuming you're in the UK, I'd lean towards this as the model is listed on the US but not the UK Samsung site.

Also (if not new) the laser could be on the way out or out of alignment. You could try a cheapo "lens cleaner" disc, but this could do more harm than good.

There is a firmware update on the Samsung site that MIGHT help, but without downloading it and seeing if it includes info on what it does this might not help at all, and you may already be on that firmware.
Scratch the "leaning towards" reasons - it's the HT-Q100T listed at Sammie US and UK. Still as possible reason, though.

I'd NOW lean towards the laser problem!
