SOURCE: No sound when watching TV

I would check all cables to make sure they are connected properly and secure, also check the cables for any defects ie bent pins, frays in wiring, etc. and check all connectors on the front or back of your tv (which ever way you have it hooked up) to make sure they are not loose or damaged first. 2. I know you can connect your dvd properly, but I have to suggest it anyway, go back through the manual and make sure all settings are properly set.
3. You may need to update your firmware, which you can find instructions in pdf at this link it will be the 6th link down in pdf. I tried finding your device on the manufacturer's website, but you need the model number, I will include that link as well. Since it only 6 months old, it should still be under warranty so I would check into that as most usually have 1 year warranty. If all else fails, it might be something internal with the dvd recorder and you will have to get another one or take yours to a repair shop, but if you do take it to a repair shop make sure it is one that is reputable and trust worthy. I hope this helps you out and I am sorry I could not be more specific on the problem.

SOURCE: I cannot open the DVD

The DVD drawer might have a small hole under the tray. You can use a straightened paper clip to push into the hole and this is supposed to manually push the slot out enough to grab and pull out. The DVD might not be seated in there.

SOURCE: my philips dvd recorder is

These methods have been shown to work

The electronic procedure:

Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.

The manual procedure:
There should be a small slot on the lower side of the unit near the front and center of the disc assembly. By sliding a small plastic numb from one side to the other unlocks the door so it can maually be opened the rest of the way. You will need a strong, thin object to slide that release nub. A small knife or nail would work. Of course you should follow all safety precaution such as removing power and not damaging anything else.

SOURCE: Drawer won't open. Says "blocked".

I had the same problem with a comparable device. It turned out that the drive belt that operates the ejection mechanism wears out or breaks.
To get at it you need to do the following:
1. remove device cover

2. remove the identification cover on the front of the DVD tray. This may be tricky if you can't open the tray. You need to find a way, because otherwise you can't remove the DVD unit, at least not on my unit.
3. remove the DVD unit by detaching the cables and removing four screws.

4. remove the two top screws on the DVD unit
5. remove the front top cover of the DVD unit by pushing the two tabs on the top of the unit, near the front.

6. Now remove the tray, by pulling it out as far as it goes and then pressing two tabs on either side of the tray. These tabs look like this:

7. Now you get at the drive belt. Originally it was black; I replaced it (temporarily) with a red one in the picture below:

8. Now put everything back together.

Disk drawer will not open on DVDR3570H


This is a common problem. There are a couple different things you can do. One is use a paper clip and pry the door tray open. Use the clip to pull down the door and pull the tray out.
Or unplug the unit for 10 seconds. Then press and hold the eject button. Then continue to hold the button while power on the unit and see if it opens.

Dvd drawer will not open. just shows blocked


My 3 yo daughter was very rough on ours. I replaced the belt on the drive with an "o" ring after it continually showed "blocked" and I was away again. You could probably pick one up from your local electronics shop.

Philips DVDR3570H HDD DVD player Recorder - done basic set up last night but the start up search for analogue channels returned 0 - speant 2 hours re arranging plugs & it still wouldn't locate them? do...


The DVDR3570H will only find analogue channels if you have a TV aerial connected to it.

If you only have a satellite or cable box, then you can still use the recorder, but you will have to use the AV inputs on the recorder. In this case you will only be able to record the satellite or cable channel you are watching.

Philips DVDR3570H/05 constantly looping on startup


I had this problem, it was solved by reformatting the hard-drive.

NOTE: if you do this, all settings and all that is saved on the harddrive is lost. But seeing that you can't start it anyway, that is acceptable, right? :)

Anyway, here's how you do it, according to Philips support:

  1. Pull out the power cord from the socket.
  2. Press and hold PREV and STOP (i.e. left and down) on the front panel.
  3. Plug the power cord into the socket again.
  4. Wait until the front panel says "FMT KEY" to let go of the buttons. Wait for it to finish formatting, upon which you will get "-- --" on the panel.
Restart the box and you should now end up at a screen asking you to set the language for the box, as if being started for the first time ever.

Also of note: if you want to restore the firmware to factory settings, Philips support told me to pull the cord, press and hold the STANDBY button, and plug it back in again. For the looping problem though, I didn't need that.

First, make sure the DVD Recorder is completely disconnected from the Main Supply.

Then, if you look on the base of the unit, (just underneath the front of the Disc Insert/Eject Tray), there is a small slot, (approx 25 x 8mm), in which you can see a small, white, plastic lever probably situated near the right-hand side of the slot.

Then move this lever gently to the left, and then turn it on and the tray opens by pushing the button.
