The problem I have is that my DVD player does not recognise any DVD's. The issue is that it switches over to Compact Disc mode and then stops and ejects the disc. I have tried a number of DVD's and it is the same thing happens everytime.
When Plyaing CD's it is fine it does that without any problem.
Any idea's on how to resolve this.

Sounds like it may have a hardware problem, specially if sometimes it plays one disc, and others not (I mean the same disc).
But in any case, check to see if there are any firmware updates from Panasonic, that may fix the not recognising new discs issue.
Usually firmware updates are done by formatting a USB pen with a manufacturer's tool and then booting the unit from that USB.
In some others just leaving the firmware file in the USB, and the unit will pick it up an upgrade.
Does it say anything like can't read disc, or just spins up and stops with no notification? Sounds like the DVD is scratched or maybe wrong format, its not a bluray is it? How old is the TV? If it hasn't played a DVD in a long time dust can collect on the lens, a Lens cleaner disc may help.
The Alba DVD recorder may not recognise any disc due to one or two of the following reason.
1, the optical pick up (lence) may be dirty or may have gone bad.
2, the cable which connects the optical pick up to the circult panel board may have go borken.
Aquarius0128 there are two things to consider here.. dvd's recorded on a computer need to be closed/finalized after you have recorded onto them in order to be used on a stand alone player.. they will play ok on original recorder because of the design of these machines finalizing prepares the structure of the disc so it can be recognised by other players as a dvd video disc.. you will usually see a 'finalize disc' option in your recording program
Second issue is this.. even if finalized an older (or even some modern) stand alone players will not recognise a recorded disc made on a computer or even if it can there are different formats DVD+R DVD-R and even DVD-RAM and DVD-RW (the two latter ones are rarely recognised outside a computer)
i have one kind of this model.But i never faced this issue.
in general, some DVD players wont recognise regional specific DVDs, we need to make the region free setting on DVD player.
i suspect some thing like this. Please check on philips web site the region free stpes for this particular model.
Two things, Laser gone low and can't read dvd. Just try cleaning the collimating lens with a cotton swab and glass cleaner. gently wet one end and dry residue with the other end. The other thing is could be just a mutilated loom (flex) cable connecting the laser from the main pcb board. Laser is most likely gone bad.
