Question about Philips Televison & Video

Open Question

Hi, I have a PHILIPS DVDR5520H/05 HDD & DVD player/Recorder. When i plug it in the light on the OK button comes on and the display reads STARTING and a symbol below 0(((. Then the symbol disappears and the STARTING display just stays on. None of the buttons on the front of the device appear to work and on the screen the Philips logo appears then disappears. Any thoughts welcome.

SOURCE: Philips HDRW720 won't turn on

I think Philips must have a timer on this unit to fail, I am also having the same problem and I think the hard drive failed. I currently have installed a new drive and held the play and open close buttons down when the power comes up. It will ask for a cd to be installed when initializing the drive. I am currently searching for that cd and will let you know if any luck with the install.

SOURCE: Philips DVDR3570H/05 constantly looping on startup

I had this problem, it was solved by reformatting the hard-drive.

NOTE: if you do this, all settings and all that is saved on the harddrive is lost. But seeing that you can't start it anyway, that is acceptable, right? :)

Anyway, here's how you do it, according to Philips support:

  1. Pull out the power cord from the socket.
  2. Press and hold PREV and STOP (i.e. left and down) on the front panel.
  3. Plug the power cord into the socket again.
  4. Wait until the front panel says "FMT KEY" to let go of the buttons. Wait for it to finish formatting, upon which you will get "-- --" on the panel.
Restart the box and you should now end up at a screen asking you to set the language for the box, as if being started for the first time ever.

Also of note: if you want to restore the firmware to factory settings, Philips support told me to pull the cord, press and hold the STANDBY button, and plug it back in again. For the looping problem though, I didn't need that.

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

My Toshiba remote control se-r0077 sometimes works to control the DVD player and other times it doesn't. I've tried new batteries and the problem still persist s


One of the best ways to check if an infra-red remote controller is working properly is to look at it using a camera. (a webcam or phone camera will work) The camera will see the infra red radiation as visible light. If the LED lights up (on camera) consistently when buttons are pressed, then it may not be the remote at fault, but rather the receiver in the DVD player. Most of the time though, it IS the remote control at fault, and these are usually easy to get working again.

Couple of things to check are:

1) the battery terminals...
Batteries can leak and corrode the terminals in the battery compartments. Signs of this include rust, green coloured contacts, or a crystalline deposit. If you see any of this then clean the contacts using metal cleaner or some methylated spirit and cue-tips.

2) Broken wires connecting battery terminals to the circuit board...
The soldering in some remotes can be rather poor, and wires can sometimes come loose, especially if a remote has been dropped or bashed about a bit. Unscrew the remote and check everything is connected properly


3) Dirt under the buttons...
This can prevent a button from making contact with the circuit board properly. Unscrew the controller and separate the rubber button pads from the circuit board check for dirt both underneath the pads AND on the metal contacts on the circuit board. Clean as required with methylated spirit and cue-tips and then reassemble.


Hope that helps!

The DVD player on my Bush 32inch television takes in DVD's but just displays 'No Disc' the model number is DLED32165HDDVD Is it something I can fix?


The player has failed, these types of devices are not fixed as the cost to repair is in some cases more than a new one. More than likely you could not get parts for it even if you knew the cause, which is most likely a failed laser light

Veon tv manual


The eject button on the remote appears as an upward-pointing arrow with an underline - see below image. The eject button on the TV has a similar symbol.

However, I suspect that in your case, you might not be having a Remote.

This link says that your TV doesn't come with a Remote and DVD cannot be ejected without the remote :
