Philips dvdr3390/37 won't power on


Your unit being stuck in standby mode is an indication that its having a power problem. Remove its plug from the wall and fix it back into the wall, then turn it on again. If its still stuck in safe mode, then the power supply board in the unit is the cause of the problem.

The power supply board might be defective and maybe that's why the unit won't power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the necessary part of the unit because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the unit might not come on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter in order to test the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Philips hts 6102 region codes

People seem to have said that there isn't a region hack for the HTS 6120, but I did mine yesterday by just following the standard Philips steps:

1) Turn on
2) Eject
3) Enter 99990 OK
4) Turn off (Standby)

Works fine now for region 1 and 2 (I don't have any DVDs from other regions).

No power

there is a fuse located near the ac plug inside on the circuit board, you can open the unit with a driver and remove it, hold it up to a light and if the wire inside is disolved, buy one at your local radio shack and try again, the amperage rating is usually a 4A , but read what it says on yours., if the fuse is not blown or the new one blows as soon as the unit is plugged it I would give up right there.

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.

DVD stuck inside, player won't turn on, standby light does NOT flash

test the capacitor with a meter to make sure it has the value stated on it.
the work on this unit is quickly exceeding its present value, most likely.
consider upgrading to a higher resolution unit if the fix is more expensive in parts and time than a new unit costs.
good luck
