Question about Philips DVP-3005 DVD Player

1 Answer

Small glitches with home-burnt DVDs only

Commercial DVDs work fine. Commercial CDs and home-burnt CD-Rs also work fine. Only with home-burnt DVDs (both -R and +R type) does a brief regular glitch or hesitation in both video and audio occur, at the same point in the disc each time, and repeating every couple of minutes. This happens irrespective of the disc burning source (both computer and DVD Recorder), and the fault does not appear on other DVD players used for comparison. I suspected a sticking carriage in the mech., but perfect repro of all the other above-mentioned discs seems to disprove this. The glitch lasts less than half-second each time.

Thanks, Colin Doman

    I'm suspecting there's a memory problem on this player...
    My landlord burnt his holiday snaps onto a dvd, and the player locks up when it tries to display them. Sometimes it displays one or two, and then locks up, sometimes just one. My suspicion is that the files are too big for the player to store in the buffer. It can handle one, but it may try to load them into memory before viewing or something...

Gents,

Not a solution but in case it may help other's understanding with a similar problem, found glitch to be related to the default Chapter-making process within the Panasonic DVD recorder when dubbing a DVD. Default appears to be 5 mins 20 seconds per chapter, i.e. 320 seconds. Glitches from these DVDs are seen regularly on two of my four DVD players at every 32 seconds, i.e. one-tenth of the chapter length. Can't explain why this happens, or why indeed two of the players sail-through this recurring glitch without problem.

Dvds and cds don't work. the screen just says reading to no end


First remove power cord from the wall for five minutes o reset the firmware. Then power on again and let the firmware load before inserting any dvd or cd. If it still can not read the disks, you use TDK lens cleaner until it can read the cleaner disk. It maybe power line glitches, you may need powerline filters for this dvd player.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

Home burnt dvd will play on one machine and not the other. An old technika works fine, an expensive philips won't play, another new technika tells me it's the wrong disc


Newer units have protocols built into the firmware that prevent "piracy". Sometimes these new protocols will prevent a home burnt dvd from running. Hold on to the old technika as long as it will run because the newer models will not work on all of your home burnt dvds.

No disc


The optical lens is out of alignment. This is why it will read CDs which have much larger data pits that DVDs.

The unit should be able to read and playback CDs (both production and burned) and DVDs (both production and burned). If the optics are out of alignment and exceed their tolerances, the player will not read discs.

This is caused fromt he player being dropped or jarred.

This is not an easy fix for the home user. This is something that a qualified professional needs to correct.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...

Will Not Play CD-Rs Part Deux


Checked specs- YES -supposed to play MP3's. Did you try other MP3 Audio disks in the DVD? You can try the MP3 disk in your computer to make sure it is OK. If it plays in the computer, have to suspect a problem with the DVD unit - probably the converter IC.

Will not play CD-Rs


DVD players will play CD's and MUSIC CD-R's. Some will play MP3's IF the unit is so designed. You would see the 'MP3' logo on the front.
