Philips DVD 763SA Player Problem

Hi FixYa,
We have the above mentioned Philips DVD Player but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.  It only works if we unplug the player, replug and try to play the DVD.  Most time the DVD player has started and then began to jitter (going into slow motion).  We'd unplug and restart the DVD about 2 to 4 times and then finally the player would work (as long as we didn't fool with the controls).  
I'm assuming this Player is on its way out, but since it is a multi-region DVD player and we live in the UK, I was wondering if I could do something to fix it myself....with your help, of course.  
Do you have any recommendations for what is wrong and how to fix it? Thanks. Tom

Hi,
Is this a Multi-region Player ?
Some Players are region Set to play Only the region they, are intended For. i.e Region 1 = NTSC( USA ) Region 2 = (PAL ) UK. Region 6 = ( ASIA ) And so on.
If you need a multi-region hack for your player, Post here.
I do charge a Small fee for This service.

Did you follow these instructions exactly? If you pressed 9990, as you mentioned, it will not work. You need to press 99990. Do you see region "0" on the display?

start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.

Your DVD player is now region free.

note:
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.

SOURCE: multi region code for philips hts 3090 dvd player

With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.

Hello,
Please go to codemasters.com , type in the details of your dvd player, there will be several region code hacks ,follow the instructions and this should work for you, basically you are needing to make your dvd player a multiregion player. all dvd players are multi region at time of manufacture, but they are code set for the county that they are shipped to, hopefully this should help. you can also go on to google type in Hack for whaterver your dvd player is and you will get a region code there.

best Wishes

Hi yogeshsghige ,

The default password could be 0000 or 12345 or something else , and it should be mentioned in your player's manual , do check the manual and find out the default password.

Hope this helps ..:)

Disc Error when I try to play a dvd LG DP781


Hi,

Sounds like either a dirty or weak laser/lens. Pls try cleaning with a CD disc cleaner or manually using cotton buds (if the eye is accessible).

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

HR 720 does not burn to DVR -R media


Hallo everybody,

this guy "mysus" is a genius! I have had above problem on a Samsung HR-725 (160 Gb Version of the HR-720) now for approx. 1 year. I´ve called the Samsung Hotline and tried other dealers - nothing worked. Today I came accross this help and tried it out immediately - and it works perfectly. However, you do need to know a little about PCBs and electronics.
I used a variety of different -R DVDs and they all seem to work now. Many thanks once again for this fantastic link.
