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

  • tjgcoach Dec 29, 2008

    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.

I have 2 problems with my lg hb 966trw: a)


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you


No power
  1. Check if the power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.
  2. Check if the main power has been switched on.
    (DVD player's power supply transformer could be burned out)
Screen is "frozen" or completely black, or Power button does not work
  1. Try turning the power off and wait 3 seconds before turning it on again.
  2. Make sure the TV and VCR (if connected) are set to the correct channel or line.
Does not play disc
  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.
No sound
  1. Check if the TV and Amplifier (if connected) is turned on and set correctly.
  2. Check if the TV, DVD player and Amplifier are connected properly.
  3. Make sure the TV, DVD player and Amplifier volume are not set to Mute.
  4. There will be no sound output during Reverse Play / Pause / Step / Slow / Search.
  5. If the DTS soundtrack is enabled in the DVD Disc Menu, but you are using Stereo Analog audio, the sound will not work. Try switching the soundtrack to Dolby 5.1 or PCM mode in the Disc Menu.
switching regions:
    • 1
Turn on your DVD player.
    • 2
Open the DVD player's main drive, also commonly called the DVD "tray." The region cannot be changed while a DVD is in the machine, so many DVD players require the tray to be open as an extra precaution.
    • 3
Push "Info" or "Setup" on your remote.
    • 4
Use the remote to select the "Region" option as indicated on your TV screen.
    • 5
Select "Region 9" to change the system to multiregion formatting. Regions 1 through 8 represent specific geographic locations and will not allow multiregion playback.

The screen shows a green/ orange screen, even when we play a DVD... How can we make that go away?


How is the player connected to the TV? It could be S-Video, HDMI, RCA, or Component Video cables. My guess is that you're using component video cables. There will be three wires that carry the video signal to the TV, and each wire carries one color. There will be a blue, yellow, and green cables. If one of these cables is not seated properly, it can cause only one or two of the three color signals to make it to the TV, causing the image to be discolored. You should check the connections of the cables. You'll also see the sound cables, probably red and white. Do not get the red video and the red sound cable mixed up!

I can't get any sound from it.. just great visual...what can I do?


Yellow plugs and jacks are the Video and that works. Red and White are the RCA sound wires from the DVD to TV.

OR

Your sound goes from the DVD to TV via a Fiber Optic or Fire Wire.

OR

You use Ch 3 on the TV and watch the DVD through a TV Tuner and use the TV Antenna Cable between the DVD and TV.

If that didn't help, let me know for more things to check like Audio settings on the TV.

Intermitting blue screen whilst watching my dvd


I'll need more information, but it sounds like an encoded (for copy protection) dvd being played through another device before going to the TV. That intermittent blue screen is usually that. How are you hooking up to your TV?

Movie does not play


Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.

No picture but has sound


Hi If your t.v.has built-in blue screen when there is no signal, then the DVD may have been accidentally switched to progressive scan mode, or defaults to that setting if new. If your T.V. is not capable of displaying in progressive scan mode, you will just get a blue screen. If you have an older tv, without blue screen, then connect it to that, and if you get a black and white split screen when you turn on the DVD, then progressive scan is the problem. Check the manual for the DVD player for the procedure to get out of that mode, and it should then work. If you still have no video, and you are using the yellow composite video jack on the back of your DVD player, then it must be brought in for service. Good Luck!
