Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player
Philips DVD750VR, manufactured July 2003. VCR works great. DVD will not load. Tried cleaner CD. It will read audio tracks, but will not load cleaner track. Cleaned laser with fresh q-tips and alcohol. Laser seems to be coming on for a few seconds, then off. Don't know if it is bright enough. Is there a procedure for aligning laser? Or, what is the next move? I have done a lot of reading on website, but I am still confused. The problem began by occasionally stopping while playing.
When my dvd player starts doing this it usually means that it is going bad and you may need to replace the dvd.

Please check the connections , check the leads from the DVD to the TV, use the line out from DVD to the line in the TV using the video and audio inputs. If this wont work then in most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.
The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board
