Question about Philips DVD727 DVD Player

8 Answers

The blue screen does not come on,dvd does not play into the tv

Checked all the wires and it sounds to want to start for about 1 second then goes off. This is strange since I had just watched 2 dvd's before the screen went blank.

    no

    tHANKS for the info, unfortunately I have tried a lot of what you mention. The blue screen doesn't show. The one thing that interested me though was the fact we had kids here messing with the remote, right after that it stopped working . Could they have given it too many different commands?

  • tjgcoach Dec 29, 2008

    yes the player lights up even shows time and tracking.

  • tjgcoach Dec 29, 2008

    The sound can even be heard for about 2 secounds, just no picture the machine seems to be running as it is supposed to, sometimes in the beginning the root comes up but then it runs right through.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The Philips DVD727 is a slim stand alone DVD player. Being so, there is only a limited space available inside and heat do build up considerably. If the ventilation holes/ports were inadvertently covered such as the sleeve/jacket of the DVD placed on top of the unit, or if the unit is inside a cabinet of sorts, then it is likely that certain components overheated. On this model, likely suspect would be the power supply board as well as the main D/A chip or decoder or any. of the power components. Sorry, but this appears to be a hardware problem and could not be corrected with a reset.

This of course would require opening the unit (even for exploratory), perform voltage measurements, determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you however be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional. If the cost of repair (service fee + parts availability) would be factored in, then other options may have to be considered such as a replacement.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,
Is it possible to use another power supply? I mean if it's a power cable you can change for another, try that.
Also, I suppose you have already tried, but eject the dvd and turn it on. Will it get to the 'No disc' screen? If you can, see if you can get to a menu where you can turn off any parental lock or suchlike. I'm not sure if restoring factory settings would be an option and, if so, if it would be advisable.. better check with the manufacturer on that one..
Also, take the batteries out of the remote control, in case the standby button on it is stuck.
Or maybe try it on another tv? just to definitely isolate the problem to the dvd player?

I guess a power surge would affect other devices plugged at the same point..

Leave it unplugged for a bit and then turn it all back on.

Hope you get there..

Its the problem of the cable or the internal circuit getting overheated so shutting off.first try replacing the cable and check if it works no problem but not it has to be repaired.

    Does the player light up and look normal> Does it open normally? In other words, does the player operate normally except for playing movies.

Hi,
I think DVD player is hooked with TV via component video input.

Check component video connections and make sure each color wire connect in same correspondence color in both units, TV and DVD Player.

BackGorund Change on a Jensen VM9311TS In-Dash DVD player


There is no e-brake override code. You have to hardwire it to bypass the e-brake. Take the peach-colored wire and ground it to metal inside the dash. Put a toggle switch inline on the wire and mount it somewhere you can reach it. When you get the blue screen when starting a movie, open the switch for 3-5 seconds, then close it again to reapply the ground. Your movie will start up, and you can then drive away with it playing.

It sounds like it is an internal problem. Could be bad ribbon connection or something else that is loose. How long have you owned the unit for?

Bypass brake for a jensen vm9311


Don't pay for it....Just read it:


The code is a permanent way of disabling the brake override on the jensen units.


There are two ways of doing this:

Insert the DVD

After the disc loads and plays you will see a blue screen telling you "it is unlawful to drive with a movie blah blah blah"

1)Activate the brake sequence and disable the blue screen using the hand brake, the switch method or anything else to give the unit its three pulses to disable that freakin blue screen.

(What I did was I installed my radio entirely, then took the pink wire and touched for two seconds, removed for two seconds and then touched and held the negative pole of a mower battery laying on my passenger seat until the screen was no longer blue.)


2) Next, on the main remote press stop twice, then 1, 2, 6, 4.

You will now see a hidden menu that says:

Region Code
Brake Override (I know you're drooling by now)
Macrovision (Watch all the burned and pirated movies you want if this option is off)
Loader Version
Model Version


3) Using the right joystick on the unit, navigate to the options of your choice, click on them to toggle on, off or which region code you want.

This is what you want:

Region Code: 1
Brake Override ON
Macrovision: OFF

When your done, click SYS SETUP on the main remote TWICE to save the settings and bingo, your done!!! Hooray!!! You can now kill your whole family in the car while watching that adult movie while your driving.....


The other way of doing this is by not engaging the parking brake sequence, thus you're inputting the code blindly.

1) Insert the DVD and you'll get the blue screen.

(If you have more than one tv, the unit itself will have the blue screen but the additional tv's you have plugged in will NOT, they will show the dvd menu. Thus you will be able to see the hidden menu on the additional screens after inputting the code, but not on the main unit because of its blue screen.)

2) On the main remote, push stop twice and then 1, 2, 6, 4

3) Push the joystick on the unit SOUTH twice and then click it once.

4) Press SYS SETUP on the main remote twice to save your settings.


It may take a few tries but you'll get it. This method can be done if you don't want to bother temporarily activating the brake sequence, but if you only have the unit and no additional tv's, its #$%^&* damn hardbecause you can't see the settings your changing.


I tried to make this as clear as possible. If you have questions, private message me or post here.

This code DOES work.

Best of Luck!


By the way, this is for informational purposes only and I will not be responsible for anything bad/stupid/ignorant you do with your Jensen unit.
