The clicking is made by the laser head as it moves across the surface of the disk repeteadly trying to pick up the data signal and failing.
If it has used to work then it's clearly a dirt problem. If a cleaning disk has failed to work then the dust has gone all the way to the reading sensor. To clean it you will need top completely dismantle the unit access the optical mechanism, take off the cover and access the reading head - there blow with the can between the lens and the sensor then with a q-tip wipe the surface of the lens.
It sounds like that you might have a high voltage arch or a bad connection on the audio amp board. You can take the back off and with the lights off, or in a dark room you can look for something arching.
clean the laser lens (which is VERY small ) with 90% of better ispropyl use a qtip to apply and the other end to wipe away excess If you can see the chrome plated rail that the laser runs on..Clean that with Q-tip and a drop of oil or WD40
You can try to reset the dvd player to factory specification with the default function in the preference section of the set-up. Use your remote control and push the set-up button. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the preference section and press enter . Youwill now have entered in to the sub-menu, use the up and down arrows to highlight default and press enter.This will set the dvd player back to factory settings. This should restore the dvd player to normal operation. If it does not restore the dvd player to normal operation, you may have a problem with the drive motor circuits. This could be a failure of components in the power supply circuit for the motor or the the motor itself. For these type of problems it is best to consult with Phillips, they will have all the proper service information to service the problem.You can call their customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-744-5477. Give them the model number of the dvd player and the problem with the intermittent drive operation. They will be able to how to get the unit serviced and repaired. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
I had the same problem and after reading and trying allot of disks I found the following to work.
Maxell - RW disk. Did a complete format on my computer (takes a while).
Burned a DVD using Vista DVD burner with only a Jpg as per one of the
other posts. Once the disk plays. Stop and goto disk management and
format using DVD-V (VR did not work).
I know its not pretty but at least its better than throwing it in the garbage bin.
