What is the model number of your DVD player? You may try power resetting the unit and check if it helps. To power reset, turn OFF the DVD player and unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet for 30 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet and turn the player ON. Attempt to open the disc tray.

Depending on the model number of your DVD player, simultaneously press the POWER + STOP + EJECT buttons. If the disc tray still does not open, simultaneously press the DISC1 + STOP + EJECT buttons.
NOTE: This step may not apply to all models as DISC1 is not available on all DVD players.

If this does not work and if the DVD player has DISPLAY and PREV buttons, press and hold the DISPLAY+PREV buttons for two seconds to unlock the drawer.

This issue may occur if the disc is damaged or if the disc was not inserted properly into the Blu-ray Disc® player. Follow the steps below to open the disc tray and eject the disc.
  1. Turn off the Blu-ray Disc player.
  2. Disconnect the power cord (mains lead) or AC adapter.
  3. Allow the disc player to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  4. While pressing the OPEN/CLOSE button located on the front of the disc player, reconnect the power cord.
    IMPORTANT: For some Blu-ray Disc Home Theater models it is necessary to press and hold the OPEN/CLOSE andPLAY buttons simultaneously, then reconnect the power cord.
    NOTE: This step may require the assistance of a second person.
  5. After reconnecting the power cord, when the tray opens, release the OPEN/CLOSE button.
  6. Remove the disc.
  7. If necessary, disconnect and then reconnect the power cord to recover the player.

Why will the power light not remain on and why does the recorder not recognize a DVD brand that has been used for the past two years?

It power supply regulator baord should be checked for any loose soldering points. Some coponents in it will heat up to an extent while the set works. Repeated heating and cooling may make solder points ot the components that get heated, and cause interruption to switching signals. Just take out the power baord, and resolder all the suspected doler points, by applying a little more solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjecent solder points. If this do not help you contact the nearest Philips Authorised Service Center to get this set repaired. On rare occations, the supply board as card basis may be replaced. OK.

Won't record on blank disc.

Bulk disc that comes in cylinder case are some time faulty and loses quality because they packed on each other. The lens of the disc are sensitive so if disc is scratch or dirty will get error message "no read". Turn the unit off then unplug ac power cord for more than two minutes then reconnect and try disc again, if issue still exist purchase disc that comes in individual case.

Audiovox D1998 portable DVD player will no long read disc.

This of course may not be the exact same thing, but mine did the same thing. Sounding like it was loading, but in fact pressing the open button it I could see the disc not spining at all (normally you would.) With the power off of course. I took all the bottom screws out (where ever the arrow points to a screw) including to the display. There is one ribbon cable easily disconnected. I lifted the mount the DVD sits on and reseated it. I put a disc in it, turned on the power and the disc turned. Great I thought. I reconnect the cable, put the screws back in - and its working.

Panisonic DVD RV-31 Wont read any DVD...shows a "Ho2" code

The motor is on its way out - the H02 code indicates motor failure as in it cannot spin the disc. You can sometimes fix it but for how long is anyone's guess. Disconnect from the power, remove the three rear screws and two screws on each side (total 7) and lift off the outer cover. Now if you carefully reconnect the power BE VERY CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH ANY PARTS INSIDE THE CASE and put a DVD disc in as per normal, you'll will see that when the tray closes, the upper platen (a honeycomb disc) that sandwiches the DVD to the lower platen does not spin - it should. Give a gentle spin clockwise and it should spin up and the DVD will play. You may need to restart if you missed your chance first time. If you switch off and on, eject and close the tray, the spin should happen as normal. If it doesn't, your motor is knackered and not an economical repair. Buy a new player. If it spins time and time again, you may well have temporarily fixed it for a while.
