Question about Philips DVD & Blu-Ray Players
With the cover off I load the disc and it spins longer that usual then it stops and the front says stop. After this it spins intermitently with nothing happening.
Had a similar problem. Called for support, but was told needed new reader. I took off the cover and manually slid the reader mechanism back and forth a few times. After doing this, tried another dvd and it worked. Apparently it was stuck and not able to move to read the dvd. Give this a try.

I'm afraid you are dealing with a weakened Laser on the unit. The cost vs. benefit ratio of fixing this unit is not worthwhile.
You will find that there are newer versions of this device on the market less expensive than what you paid for the unit you have now.

I had the same problem with my PET724. I tried cleaning the lens, letting the battery run dead, even beating on it but nothing worked. When I was cleaning the lens again with some cleaning agent I accidentally slid the laser head as far away from the center as it would go. When I loaded another disc it has worked fine ever since. I have played at least two dozen discs so far with no problem.
Hope this helps.
