Question about Philips DVP3982 DVD Player

1 Answer

Displays no disc

I have a Phillips DVD player, model DVP3982/37.
Was working fine but was playing around with remote and now when I insert a DVD, it displays "loading" for about 30 seconds and then changes to "No Disc". How can I fix this? Could I have accidentally turned on disc lock?....if so, How do I unlock it?
Thanks very much.

I had the exact same problem. When I finally opened the top there was another disk already in there. I guess if the unit shuts off and you leave aa disk in it will stay in the player even though when you open the door to place another disk in the tray will be empty. All you have to do is unscrew the cover aand then you will see a crossbar held in with two screws where the disks are. unscrew them and take out the two disks thay are stuck togeather. Replace eveything and rescrew and enjoy the movie!! Hope this helps!

The player will read dvd but will not play cd


Richard: This is what EHow.com said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    HOW DO I TYPE NAMES OF CD OR DVD ?


    You can't add a title to a disc from a player (such as this). You can only add a title on a disc writer before finishing the disc. (The only exception is RW (rewritable) disc which can be unfinished.) If a title (disc, chapter or track) is on the disc you can display it. Press Title on the remote. If you want to read all of the information on any disc, insert the disc and press Load on the player (when in Stop mode) or press the TV/DiscExplorer/DVD button to set the unit in Disc Explorer mode. It takes about 30 seconds to load the data. Press Stop to cancel the data search. Then use the folder buttons (ALL,DVD,CD,A,B,C,D) on the remote or the player to read the various items. Press Return to leave the folders. If you enter the Disc Explorer while playing a disc, the playback will stop and you will have to press Play to restart (Resume is not an available option).

    Once loaded the player will store the data even after you remove the disc. It will clear when a new disc is inserted or you press Load.

    The manual for this unit is available at: http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DVPCX850D .

    I hope this helps.

    You need to unlock the player before it will play discs from other regions. UK has region 2 discs while the US has region 1.

    Search on Google for your DVD model and unlock code.
    Dial in the code using your remote and you should then be able to play any region discs from around the world.

    My phillips 5.1 dvd player not playing dvd disc, only playing vcd


    the laser lens on the optical pickup is dirty or scratched. to clean: buy a disk cleaner and use it per instructions. if it doesn't help, you can do it manually. remove the top, remove the top off of the disk assembly (you may have to remove the whole assembly first) until you see the lens. be careful with the cables and wires. use a lint-free swab (not a q-tip and not your finger), gently wipe off the lens. replace the covers and test. if it still doesn't work, it may be scratched or damaged. in which case, it needs to be replaced.

    Samsung 3650 dvd/vcr player loading problem


    Sorry, no suggestion other than don't buy Samsung. That's my conclusion after owning the same model. It worked fine for a while, but now won't load any DVD... usually. Sometimes it will play one, but more often it won't. Mine tries to load ("Loading") for a long time, I hear the DVD spinning, then ultimately the screen displays "This disc cannot be played" or something to that effect.
