Question about Philips DVDR3435V/37 DVD Recorder/VCR

1 Answer

I found a loose part in the VCR bay I'd like to reinstall. Part #T5B

Part # T5B is involved with allowing the VCR tray to retract and lower in the DVP3150V/37 player. Without it, the tray jambs and shuts off the player. It's located on the right side of the tray mechanism. Help!

I found that part #T5B was on the bottom of the VCR tape tray on the right side of the VCR tape bay opening and was spring activated by inserting the tape to allow the tray to retract into the player mechanism. Without a tape installed, part T5B prevents the tape carriage from retracting.
However, I still couldn't get the whole mechanism timed properly, and gears were skipping teeth, the mechanism was still binding, and shutting the power for the whole player down. Therefore, I removed the rubber drive belt that operated the VCR tray insertion/ retraction process, and disabled the VCR side from operating at all. This allowed the power to remain on and allow the DVD side to work properly.
This worked only for the Phillips DVP3150V/37. I cannot say for certain if other Phillips players are the same.

2011 Honda Ridgeline center console cup holder can't retract. Stuck in the extended position. Won't close. Hits something.


Most often it is just gummed up with soda syrup. spray a little armor all into the mechanism and let it sit for a few minutes, then operate the mechanism. repeat until it works smoothly again, making sure to wipe any excess fluid up. Hope this helps.

Check the weight and see if it has screws in it to move in on the hose line the distance it lacks retracting.

Most of them can be adjusted to proper retracting mode. It may have a couple of screws in it.

Tapes won't play and won't retract when ejecting


This is the most common VCR problem of all time. The piece call the idler tire is worn down and needs replacing. This is the little wheel in the mechanism between the 2 reels that flips back and forth depending on which direction you've told it to go. It has a rubber tire around it to allow some slippage so that the take up reel can go whatever speed it needs to as it accumulates more and more tape on it as it goes through your movie. Sometimes this tire is very difficult to get at so it isn't something you should try to do yourself unless very mechanicly inclined. Replace the rest of the rubber belts while you're at it.
Hope Ya Fix it!

Pioneer DV-C36 disc tray will not stay open


Solution for Pioneer DV-C36 Multi Disk DVD player - tray door will not stay open.

My player would open the disk tray when the open button was press but when the tray was fully open it would retract
back into the unit leaving no time to change or load disks.
I found a poor connection at the ribbon cable connector was causing this problem. A seven conductor ribbon cable
connects the main unit with the travelling tray. A position switch (S21) senses when the tray is fully extended and retracted.
On my player pin 1 of the ribbon cable connector on the travelling tray was not making an electrical connection which
causes the control system to retract the tray. The fault lies in the connector - the tang was not pressing against the ribbon cable conductor.
I was able to desolder the connector and pull the contact out just far enough to reform the tang with fine needle nose pliers.
This is very tedious and required an eye loupe for magnification.
Tools required:
#1 and #2 phillips screwdrivers
Soldering and desoldering irons (or other desoldering tools)
Fine needle nose pliers.

Remove the tray ribbon cable
1. Remove the cabinet cover - 6 screws. Open the tray. To keep the tray from retracting pull the power cord when the tray is extended.
2. Remove the front bezel from the tray. Gently pry up the bezel by relesing the catches with a small screwdriver. Allow the tray to retract.
3. Remove the front panel - undo large ribbon and wire connections on right, remove screws left and right, release
two catch tangs on bottom edge using a small screwdriver on the inside of the unit.
4. Remove the white plastic cover over the laser mechanism ( 2 screws) Remove the disk carrier by removing the center screw.
5. Extend the tray again. When the tray is out the small ribbon cable is visible below the tray. Undo the ribon cable where it attaches to the main unit unit.
6. To slide the tray off the main unit use a small screwdriver to depress the stop catches (2) in the tray. They are molded into the tray.
Pull the tray out further then lift up.
7. Flip over the tray and find the small circuit board the ribbon cable goes to. Desolder the motor wires (red and black) and remove the 2 screws
holding the circuit board and position switch.

Use a multimeter to confirm there is an open or poor connection in the ribbon cable connector.

Remove the ribon cable and inspect the connector with an eye loupe or other magnification device. On my player contact #1 was not positioned properly
to press against the ribbon cable conductor. You can either replace the connector or repair it.
Warning: repairing the connector may damage it.
To repair the contact desolder the connector from the circuit board. Bend the circuit board prong straight and push it into the body of the
connector which will extend the contact out and the contact can be reformed. Be very gentle. Bending the contact may cause it to break.

Reassembly is the reverse. Don't forget to solder the motor wires with the proper polarity. Red and Black are labeled on the circuit board.
