The DVDR880 displays "IS TV ON?" when it is in factory mode. You need to switch the TV to the DVDR input, as the on-screen instructions will tell you how to proceed.

SOURCE: i put my dvdr phillips recorder on progresive scan no picture

You will have to reset the DVD player in order to undo the progressive scan option. Since you cannot see a menu to do so...

1. Unplug the dvd player from the outlet
2. Press and hold down the STANDBY-ON m button on the front of the Recorder while reconnecting to the power outlet.
3.Release STANDBY-ON m when '  ' appears in the display. All the information stored in the memory (programs, time, TIMER) will be reset (cleared).

Hope this helps with your problem, thank you for stopping by Fixya! Please leave a positive rating if this solution works for you.

Hi there,

This player is relatively easy to change to region free. Please complete all of the steps below to unlock your DVD player.

Please note: Unlocking any DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.

Unlock sequence for the Philips DVP 3020:

1. Switch on your TV and DVD player;

2. Make sure the TV is set to the correct input for the DVD player;
3. Remove any disc from the DVD player and close the disc tray;
4. Press the "SETUP" button on the DVD player remote control;
5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to highlight "PREFERENCE";
6. Enter 1 3 8 9 3 1 using the numerical keys on the Philips DVD remote control;


A pop-up menu will appear on the TV screen.

7. Use the UP/DOWN arrow key and choose "0" for all regions;

That's it. You should now be able to watch DVDs from all regions on your player. It is also a good idea to switch the player to standby and then switch it back on before trying any discs.

This is a verified unlock sequence for the Philips DVP 3020. If it doesn't work the first time, switch the power off and start again at step 1. If it still doesn't work, it is likely that you have updated your Firmware to a new version and this unlock sequence does not work with your firmware version

If you need further assistance, please reply to me from within this page and let me know which firmware version you have installed in your DVD player.

Regards,
BElectric.

Yamaha wont start


Hi Denver, and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine run switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, loose, corroded or broken battery cables, especially the "NEGATIVE" cable at both ends (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

My m.p.3 phillips gogear vibe now says :no space to build database,please connect to p.c. and create 100 mb free space,then turns off,please tell me what to do to get this to work again?


Firstly, I'd suggest that you do a soft reset of your player. You will find the reset button next to the 'power on' button on the side of the player. Please hold the Reset button using a pen tip or other sharp object for 10 seconds. Now turn it on.

If that doesn't work, I'd suggest that you format your player or repair it using Philips songbird. Contents may be removed by using this function. So make sure to back up your contents.

Format:
On your computer desktop, double-click "My computer". Double-click on the MP3 player's icon. Right-click on the Internal Storage icon and then select "Format".

Repair:
Launch Songbird and then connect your player to your computer. Select "Repair" under the "Tools" menu. Follow the instructions given by the pop-up windows to perform the repair process.

Hope this works.

Okay, so I've got a fx-7400G PLUS. My stupid friend put the contrast to light and turn it off. The calculator stop working. What can I do to make it work again? Thanks in advance.


Hi,
Reset the calculator. On the back of the calculator there is a reset button (Above battery compartment and to the left. Use a thin pointed object to push it. The calculator will ask for confirmation to reset all memory back to default. Press [F1] to accept.
And next time avoid hanging out with stupid people, and don't lend them your calculator. Didn't you know that stupidity is contagious?

Hope that helps.
Thank you using FixYa and for rating this solution.

Have a phillips DVDR model#3455H.Inserted dvdrw disc recorded with videos recorded on it in my computer. Disc works fine in my pioneer dvdr but when I put it in the phillips it will not load and it will...


The electronic procedure:
Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.
