Hi, i have a portable dvd player & the battery is 2 hours. now it only lasts 30 minutes. is there something i csn do to boost it or do i need a new battery. thank you, medina

Your best bet is simply to replace it with a more reliable battery. However, starting the dvd player without a disc so that the settings appear should allow you to change the options on the DVD player. This should allow for the brightness and picture settings to be adjusted to preserve battery to the best of the DVD players ability.

Step One: Remove Disc
Step Two: Turn On DVD Player
Step Three: Enter Settings
Step Four: Adjust the picture and screen settings to maximize the battery life (make the screen less bright for an example)

There may be a setting specifically meant to maximize battery life. Hope This Helps.

I have bought a DVD player - Philips DVP3336. Can you help with the all -region code please?

Hello - I don't have this player but my people tell me this user hack works:

  • Step 1 : Switch the DVD player to Power On & the TV also.
  • Step 2 : Press "Setup" key on the DVD remote
  • Step 3 : Scroll down & select "Preferences"
  • Step 4 : Press the following number : "138931" from the DVD remote keys
  • Step 5 : Region code will appear. Scroll up or down & select "0" (Zero)
  • Step 6 : After selecting "0" Press "OK" or "Enter"

The player should now be region free & capable of playing discs from all regions.

The one caveat is that if you have a different firmware version this hole might have been closed. It's easy enough to try and can't damage anything.

Enjoy (hopefully) your new world of DVD's.

Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Dvd picture works, vcr picture does not work. Sound works from both. is this a problem with the machine or the set up?

Try a cleaning tape in the VCR. If the pictures both come ut of the same connector then the VCR may be in need of cleaning. Also can you see a picture 'through' the vcr, if you wanted to record on the vcr? Have you tried recording?
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply and remember, even if you don't vote for me a please and thank you goes a long way

I've had this DVD player for a while and haven't had many problems until now. Any kind of DVD I put in the player, it says it's loading for a while, and then comes up with the message "Wrong Disc", for...

Hello kpohl385,
Sorry to hear you are having some problems with your player, but hopefully I can help you solve the problem. The following are some common reasons why dvd players fail to read discs or give you error messages.

1. The discs are scratched or dirty. If you hold them up to the light and tilt them, you will be able to see smudges, finger prints, scratches, chips, etc. Since your player is not reading any disc (even new ones) this does not sound like the problem, but still needs to be considered.
2. The optical lens that reads the discs is dirty and needs to be cleaned. According to the description you have given of the problem, this sounds like the most likely source of the problem you are having.
Here is a example picture of what the optical lens looks like:
3. The spindle motor could malfunction which will cause the disc to not spin at all or spin erratically. If a disc will not spin properly the laser inside will not read the information on the disc.
4. The optical assembly has malfunctioned and the laser that reads the information is not working.

You can also read my tips and tricks section on the most common reasons why dvd players fail, which will provide you with more in depth descriptions, pictures, and information.

The easiest way to clean the optical lens of your player is by purchasing a dvd cleaning kit. You can purchase this kit at most stores that sell electronics such as Wal-mart, Best Buy, Circuit City, etc. They are not expensive. You can also clean the optical lens manually and you will find information on how to do this here. I would also recommend you purchase a disc cleaning kit as well. This will help keep your dvd/cd discs in good working order and help remove dirt and scratches and they are also not expensive (this is totally optional) and can be purchased at the same type of stores I mentioned above. You can also clean your discs manually, but it will not really help with scratches. You can find step by step instructions here.

Here is a example picture of what a dvd cleaning kit looks like:

All dvd/cd devices eventually fail over time, but by far the most common problem is just a dirty optical lens or dirty or scratched disc.
Sorry for all the links, but if I posted all the pictures and instruction on here, it would look like a novel :-).

I sincerely hope that this solves the problem you are having. Please let me know if you need any further assistance and I will be more than happy to try and help you to the best of my abilities. I wish you all the best.

If you would not mind, please rate my help. I would greatly appreciate it. Thank You
