Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player

1 Answer

Just need to get disc out...

Not really interested in fixing this unit - not worth the trouble. I just need to find a way to get the dog-gone disc out! I have unscrewed the DVD unit from the bottom of the chassis but it will not come out from the front or back of the unit. Even took the screws out of the bottom of the faceplate with same results - disc unit will not remove. I am trying to just get to the belt or pully on the bottom so I can eject the disc manually. Any help?

Merry Christmas!

Looking at the front, flip the unit over. Near the top middle you will see a narrow ****.You will see a white piece of plastic under the ****. If you have a dvd tray pinhole tool, use the bent end and insert it into the **** and use it to push the plastic piece to the left and if you push it far enough, the tray should open. I also used a very small screwdriver at an angle to open the tray.

Will dog get sick eating ice

Will you get sick eating dogfood?
most dogs eat what their boss is giving them. But lots of things a dog gets is not good for its health. So you should not feed a dog things with sugar, milk carbs, and so on. Will the dog become ill after eating a lick of ice. Not likely, but giving the dog ice regularly is really bad.

My neighbor is selling his Suncast DH350 Dog House for a really good price. Is it worth me buying it even though its already 5 years old?

It really depends on the quality of the dog house. If it's been kept in good condition and it can be used safely for your dog, then I say go for it. A new one costs around $80, so the price your neighbor is selling it should be much lower.

The squeak has gone from my dog's favorite toy, can it be fixed?

It could be that the squeaky thing inside the toy has become dislodged or has a hole in it. Most of the toys are molded which means you would have to cut it open to replace the squeaky device. These toys are quite inexpensive so it might be worth your while to buy your dog a new one.

Water is dripping down inside the heater on the left side,pool co. says I need to buy a new heater. Any thoughts?

The heat exchanger is the problem and it is expensive to fix. If the leak has gone on long enough to damage other parts or the heater is getting older than 8-10 years then it is likely better to replace it.

If the unit is newer and in decent shape then fixing it is an option but total for parts and labor is nearly half the cost of a new unit so consider carefully if the repair is really worth it.

The sound is great, but the picture has gone to gray with horizontal white lines across the screen. It is 20 years old, and probably not worth fixing, but i will ask anyway, just in case it is a simple...

Hello Sat, hi, its a failure of the horizontal output transistor responsible for high voltage. This transistor is needed to be replaced. you need a TV tech guy to have this fixed. have it checked first, the trouble is common to CRT type TV really easy to fix. for a tech guy.

Poulan rope broke and pulled out of unit. How is

I have manually fixed these starters before and it is really more trouble than it is worth (and not one unit I fixed ever worked exactly the same afterwards). I would suggest taking it to your local small engine repair shop. They have both the patience and the tools to do the job right and the cost is well worth it--trust me!

Unintentional initilizing!

They may not be gone.
I was told to go to a video production store, like that do weddings and see if they can retrieve your info from the disc.
It will cost you, and don't think that Canon or your disc manufacture will reinburst you. They won't. I tried.
Because we thought we lost everything too!
I think there is a defect in the camera itself or the manual is not telling you everything you need to know.
