Question about Philips DVD-750 DVD Player
When I put in a vcr take into my dvd/vcr combo, it ejects the tape, displays the ERR 3 message and turns the power off. I tried putting in a head cleaner and it ate the tape. I'm affraid my 4 heads are bad. Thoughts?
It sounds like the sensor to tell the microcontroller that the tape is moving is not working. If that is so, the VCR would probably do the same thing in FF or Rewind. If you end up taking this unit into a repair shop, have them check the DVD's software version (it should be 1.250) If below that number, have them upgrade that as well. You can check the version yourself by pressing 1,2,3,4 and then "display" on the remote while the unit is on and no disc in DVD. After noting the version, just hit "power" on the remote to exit this mode.

With some models of DVD player I know you can download a firmware update on your PC, load it to the DVD player and it wil fix some issues.
Finding those sites for download may be difficult though.

On the remote, clicked a botton on the bottom. Don't have it with me so can't remember which one. Will look and post answer. Thanks

the video heads are probably dirty.there is a steel drum 1/2 inch thick that you can see if you look thru the front lid where the tape loads.the video heads are little black spec looking things on the bottom of the drum.the easiest way to clean the drum for a novice is to put isopropyl alcohol on a piece of 2 inch square paper.hold the paper very lightly against the drum with your right index finger.turn the drum from the top,anti clockwise.you will see some black stuff on the paper.do the same with a piece of dry paper.otherwise the tape will stick to the drum if still wet.DO NOT use a q tip,as it will get caught in the heads and break them.
sometimes,just running a new blank tape for 15minutes will dislodge the particles and the picture will re appear.if you have recently rented a movie,and saw lines running across the screen,and noise from inside the machine,it is damaged tape going across the heads and drum and it can wipe out the picture just like that.run a blank tape first and then clean the drum if you have to.
