Question about Philips DVD751AT DVD Player

Open Question

DVD player sometimes no color

So here's the setup.  I have a Philips 751 dvd player set up into my receiver that goes to everything else.  Since I switched back to my old non-HD tv (my roomate moved out and took it) it plays in black and white.  I've tried switching between PAL and NTSC but no avail.  Plus, the Philips menu, is in color.  I've tried plugging it straight into the tv, different ports, but nothing.  When I put in a dvd, it pulls up in color for a split second, then goes to black and white.  I've played in the menu and can't seem to get this to work.  Oh, and old DVD's I have play in color, no problems.  Has there been a change in DVD coding in the past few years or does some divine power just hate me? Please help.

SOURCE: how to unlock it to play either NTSC/PAL

Here is the sequence to unlock your DV Player. Clearly this needs to be done exactly to access the secret menu. So, you may want to copy and paste this info into a word program and then print it.

- Begin -
1. Turn off NS55P, leave TV on.
2. Using the original remote supplied with the NS55P, press these buttons in order: DISPLAY, TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.
3. NS55P will turn on, displaying the secret menu on the tv screen.
4. Select 2: Drive Manual Operation, then 4: Tray Aging Mode.
5. The screen then shows two input lines: Input Count and Current Count. Use the code 00030 on the first line. Pressing zero first will take you back to the original menu, so instead of trying to type 0-0-0-3-0, try something like 1-0-0-0-3-0 so the 1 in the front disappears after the last zero is entered.
6. Press ENTER on the remote. Disk tray will then open and close automatically 30 times. Let it do this until it finishes.
7. Repeat steps 4-6, but instead of using 00030 in the Input Count, use 00000. Press ENTER, and the NS55P is now capable of reading Region 2 dvds.

- End -

SOURCE: My dvd will stop playing after it plays for about 90 seconds

You can try to reset the dvd player to factory specification with the default function in the preference section of the set-up. Use your remote control and push the set-up button. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the preference section and press enter . Youwill now have entered in to the sub-menu, use the up and down arrows to highlight default and press enter.This will set the dvd player back to factory settings. This should restore the dvd player to normal operation. If it does not restore the dvd player to normal operation, you may have a problem with the drive motor circuits. This could be a failure of components in the power supply circuit for the motor or the the motor itself. For these type of problems it is best to consult with Phillips, they will have all the proper service information to service the problem.You can call their customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-744-5477. Give them the model number of the dvd player and the problem with the intermittent drive operation. They will be able to how to get the unit serviced and repaired. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

I have a Philips DVD 751 DVD/vidio cd/dvd player and it will not load discs. It spits them out right away. The problem started with a disc error, don't remember what that error and can't check becasue I...


Hi,

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

No color output from philips 751/171 dvd player


Hello.

The RF modulator sends on a certain frequernzy(Channel) usally around channel 36 on UHF. If there is a adjustmen screw on it try and turn it util the picture disapears and then search for it on the tv again just to make sure nothing else is interfearing on the channel the RF modulator is sending on now.

An alternative if there is no adjustment on your RF modulator would be to change the frequenzy on your VCR or other devices attached to your TV that might send on the same frequenzy as your RF modulator.

I can only record and play back in black and white.


siri,

for the black and white screen output of your DVD and VCR.

1) for DVD player: using remote control locate "setup" button and click.a dialogue box should appear indicating " audio setup" video setup" etc.....
2) select and scroll to "video setup". in video setup there should be an option to choose "AUTO" "PAL" or "NTSC"
3) choose "auto" then check if any change in screen color.

for VCR, locate a switch or button indicating "PAL" "Auto""PAL SECAM" "NTSC". same with the dvd choose and select "auto"

note: if you still have the manual for both VCR and DVD check the instruction with regards to video color setting.

cheers,
mark

DVD player not working properly


I have a DVD player, a VCR player, a TV set all hook into an RCA RT2250 Audio/Video receiver. Everything was working fine until 2 days ago. Now the DVD player gives me a great pix but no sound. The VCR,and TV are just fine and I have checked everything out, speaker connections, mute buttons, etc. and nothing seems to be wrong. I am thinking that some thing in the receiver got fried. Is it repairable?

No color when playing DVD


your player is set to the wrong format ie either ntsc if your in europe or pal if your in america, you need to go to the setup and make sure the dvd setup is for your region. pal in europe,ntsc in america..most dvd players automatically switch.but sometimes people change the settings without knowing.

There can one of two problems here. Either your DVD player's output is set to NTSC and you are attempting to play it through a PAL (European) TV, or you are perhaps using the SVHS output incorrectly. The solution is to access the player's setup menu and ensure the video output is set to your standard (PAL or NTSC). Hope this helps!
