Question about Philips DVP5140 DVD Player

1 Answer

Home burned DVDs won't load, commercialy produced DVDs load OK

Home burned DVDs that played well in the past won't load now. No newly burned discs will load. I am using the same burner, the same software (Nero 6), and the same player (Philips DVP5140/37). Philips customer support has been singularly unhelpful. They focus on if the discs are finalized (they are) or if there is some sort of encryption happening (no setting I've made or can find). I have purchased a new set of Sony DVD+RWs in case my usual discs (Memorex and Sony DVD+RWs) are wearing out but that didn't solve the problem.

Try using a programme called dvd flick http://www.dvdflick.net/ to author your dvds and use imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn them. I had similar kind of problem with dvds burned with nero and now use dvd flick and imgburn all the time and have had no problems. They are both free programmes so hopefully they will sort the problem out for you :)

It depends how you burn movies (for example). If you burned as data disc, it's probably won't play it. Make sure you burn movies as DVD format.

Screen says loading.Then says (no disc)


There are a lot of reasons why that could happen. Sometimes when a DVD player needs to be cleaned it won't read a disk.Sometimes when you try to play a NTSC disk on a PAL DVD player or visa versa it won't play. Region coding could be another issue. And sometime home burned DVDs won't play in certain players.

Bose lifestyle 48 says format unsupported for audio cds


Hi Johnxxlt,
According to Bose, the message that you have is due to dust in the system ....
They have offered 3 ways :-
Try cleaning the CD or DVD, as follows: 

  • Use a soft, dry, lint-free cloth to remove stains or fingerprints from the disc surface 

  • Wipe in straight movements from the center of the disc to the outside

  • Do not use any chemical cleaning products. They can damage the disc.
If the above will not fix the problem, you need to call them to repair the system.
I know its frustrating, However, we cannot play more with Bose as it might void the warranty if any.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Do rate the solution as "Fixya" if 100% satisfied.

DVDs Wont play


Check the specs on your dvd player. Not all players will read dvd-r discs. Some players will only read commercially produced dvds. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks.

Hi, I bought Bose 3 2 1 SERIES 11 Home system. but i cannot play wedding dvds on my system. All hollywood movies plays ok. I tried Verbatim DVD R & DVD-R there is no picture but the sound is there....


I would say that as with many manufacturers, the Bose 3-2-1 is meant to play Dual Layer DVDs. Since they hold data on 2 separate layers of the disc, these hold twice the amount of data than the Dvd+r or -r that you're using. When the Bose system tries to read the 2 layers and only finds one it, will not recognize the dvd. If you don't have a Dual-Layer burner and Dual Layer discs to burn to, you should upgrade your burning equipment. They're not that expensive these days. Cheers!

Dvd player wont recognize newly burned dvd


Give this a try : write a DVD at 1x speed (lowest speed) and test it on your laptop. If this works ok then either use better media or lower (e.g half) your writing speed........
