Question about Mustek PL-607 Portable DVD Player with Screen

1 Answer

PL607 Not Operating

I'm here in Manila Philipppines and I was given a brand new PL607 DVD player as a gift from a friend in California. The unit was initially playing VCD's, JPEG, and MP3 but not DVD's because of the units is suitable for Region A (USA). Searched from Mustek website, I played the CDR with the 3 files namely flash.bin, dvd.908.bin, and checksum.bin in the player to upgrade the unit into multi-region. During the upgrade process, the power in our locality shut down. I tried to repeat the process but the unit is no longer playing. The LCD screen only appears the static image on a grey back ground but the power indicator light and dvd player is dead. What should I do?

    My DVD Player PL-607 still does not work despite following the instructions on your solution posted on another client with problems on the operation of the unit. I guess my unit needs re-programming because the problem only occured when the power source shut down during the upgrade process. Hope you can help us seek the solution from the manufactrurer. Thank you very much in advance.

Do not buy any portable appliance with Mustek brand. After-sales support is very poor. The only solution for this troubled unit is through it in your trash can.

Plays blu ray will not play dvd

Above is the us version of your manual.
I suggest you look at the dvd/bd settings on page 46.
Check the manual for the discs you cannot play.
Check that the region code of your dvd matches the one on the disc..

If you want to mail it and must have a receipt
1.Find out the way they paid for your gift,if its with cards, they will have a record on paper or the internet of the spend.
2.Also check with the shop if you can prove that it was bought there, and they may issue you a copy receipt.

Brand new, won't play dvds but plays cds


I would advise you to return the unit to where you bought it from and get an exchange unit. There appears to be a laser problem here - the DVD laser is defective - that's why you can only play CD's! (:-)

Sorry to inform you that this is not realistically possible. You would not only need to swap out the lens, but also the laser. These days you can pick up a store brand dvd player for about $20 brand new. I imagine if you looked hard enough and sourced a dvd unit that would fit the in the ps1 case and worked on the supplied voltage of the console it COULD work. But, you would be spending $100+ on parts and having a nightmare of a time retro fitting a dvd laser unit that was not made for that system.

Moral of the story... Just buy a cheap DVD player and keep the PS1 around for memory. Or maybe sell the the PS1 for $20 and buy a DVD player :)
Good Luck!

Brand new DVDs will not play in Samsung Progressive Scan v3650

If you're trying to play through to your TV through the RF out on your combo unit, it's probably the copy protection that's stopping the playback. Try through the composite/audio jacks.

It turns out the I was given the right advice. That the DVD player was not working properly and that it should be replaced. After the chat.

That proved to me that my friends DVD player was indeed faulty. She now believes me when I tell her that she needs new equipment!

Greetings Ranin,

I would try unplugging the unit for approximately 30 minutes to allow it to completely power down and then plug it in again. It might restart the internal menus and allow the dvd player to eject.

I hope this helps!

If it's a DVD recorder, make sure you are using compatible DVD-R media. Check in the user's manual if it supports DVD+R or DVD-R.

Philips Portable DVD player

the problem is with the iTunes software. The old versions of the software worked in the portable DVD player but the new versions of the software disable the feature so if possible the only solution I know if is to revert back to older version of the software. That may not be possible for you though. I have been told it is because Apple wants to continue to monopolize and force people to buy there Apple cords and apple specific products.

I am hoping that a future version of the software corrects this error but until then I have chosen to disable the software update feature so that I can play movies on my iPod through my Portable DVD player
