Hi there,

Regarding my problem well it look me a while but I got there in the end. What I had to do was type in a password which is in the manual at the back 136900 & after that the DVD worked. The only slight problem I have though now is that when I do wana watch a region 1 DVD its asking for that password everytime I put one on, as long as it works all the time I should be ok.

Sounds like there is a short in your AV cable. Move the video cable (marked with the yellow ends on it) and see it the color changes or use different set of av cables.

unplug 1st ! Open the unit.. look inside see if there is a nickel size battery in a clip on the ckt board. if you can, remove it and take the battery to radio shack to match it to a new one. put it back the same way you took the old one out. If you unit has a soldered in battery you will have to take the unit (if you can't solder) to a electronics repair shop. they should be able to fix you up for maybe $39 or so plus the cost of the battery.

136900 is the password for Philips DVD players

If you get any power lights, or LCD display, then it is possible that the main processoer could be locked up do to a small power supply. If nothing works, then check for a blown fuse on power supply , or a bad power supply.
