Re: No CD sound on Philips DVD/VCR player

I havent seen this model But in the past I have heard this problem arise. It turned out that there was a mute button for the cd only on the remote and there was no indicator to show it. check for a cd mute or go into the cd play menu and check around in there.

SOURCE: no sound thru dvd player, but fine for tv and vcr

Just had the same problem and it is fixed for me. With NO DISC in the player go to the System Menu. Next Navigate to Preferences on the top of the screen.

You will set an option titled "Default". Select that and it seems to reset the player to default settings and fixes the sound.|

SOURCE: buzzing sound when playing dvds

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your DVD player needs to be repaired. There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced. If the unit is no longer in warranty, it will be cheaper for you to replace the player rather than paying to have it repaired.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

How do you program into the dvd that you want it to fast forward quickly? There is a way but am not sure how it is done.

You don't, you just press the FORWARD button on remote during DVD playback to 'fast forward' (pressing this button a second time during playback increases forward scan speed). The forward and reverse buttons have 'SLOW/SEARCH' printed above them on the remote. The other buttons next to them are the PREV/NEXT buttons (SKIP/INDEX).

DVD playback speed/skip/search is mostly a manual user function; it cannot be auto set.

The VCR shuts off after just a few seconds of playing or rewinding or fast forwarding. The tape goes in, and when you push play (or any direction), the unit will try and play it and then it will shut the...

There is a part that is called an idler wheel assembly that is critical for play, rewind, and fast forward, and may have stopped working. The second possibility is that the drive belt that runs the idler assembly has broken or come off.

I have bought samsung dvd player h1080 and it seems that it is region 1 how can i make it region 2. thanks


After searching the best known region hack databases I have found one process for your make and model. I can not assure you that it will work 100% but it's the only known process.

Turn on the Player with no disc on the tray. The tv screen and the dvd lcd will display "No Disk"

2. Press the "Repeat" key on the Samsung remote control

3. Press the keys: "5 7 5 3 8" on the remote. Number 2 appears on the screen for a short time.

4. Press "9". Number 9 is displayed on the screen.

5. Press the "Open/close" button in the remote. The tray will open. Leave it open for a few seconds.

6. Just press the "On/off" button in the remote.

7. You now have a multi-region dvd player!!

I hope this works for you, thank you for choosing Fixya!

No picture

Sounds really broken. Unless you can find a replacement DVD drive for low money , you may have to junk it.
