Player will not load dvd. I have cleaned everything, recharged, rested It just keeps loading on and on without connecting. Help.


This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.

DVD in player and it will neither play or eject the disk.


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board or the drive mechanism

My Philips dvdr 3380 will read cd but wont read dvds disliay meassage reads unknow disc type


Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without any pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the DVD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to have issues and the possibility of the optical head being good.
Finally try to see if the set records on a DVD with a given signal source. If not the fault is confirmed that the main PCB, processing section is faulty.

A standard commercial movie on DVD first showed 'no disc' and then on second loading 'disc not recognised' after it had spun the disc up. This has happened to several discs. All discs work in any other...

If there is still no result then watch the CD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to work correctly and the possibility of the optical head being the suspected fault is closer.

Dvdr 3455H/97 hard disk unable to reboot


from krystle i am an electronic tec:
what i have found the big difference between the philips dvdr3455h and the dvdr3575h is the
dvdr3455h boot from software on the hard drive and the dvdr3575h boot from an eprom.
the dvdr3455 has both booth software and movie edit software, if the hard drive become
bad in the 3455 or the software become corrupted it wil hang at the philips logo screen.
the dvdr3575h will boot with a bad hard drive or no hard drive at all you will you wont be able to
capture your video to the hard drive.
if the movie edit software become corrupt or damage when you press record button
it will just lock up the recorder.you will need a software reload if the software become corrupt.

if you need a reload on your hard drie email me i will tell you what you need to do my email is krystle913@yahoo.com

Philips dvdr3455h/37 recording issues


I was having the same problem if I used DVD+R blanks, but the programs would record fine if I used Memorex DVD+RW rewritables. Until today, that is - now it won't let me burn anything from the HDD to a disk!  My 3455H is about two years old.
Gotta say I'm quite disappointed with it, and would never consider another Philips product. :(
