Question about Philips HTS3450 System

2 Answers

Dvd tray wont open or close

Model number: Philips HTS3555

I press the open button on the remote and the dvd player itself and nothing happens. No sound of the motor, nothing. The display reads open or close so the unit is working ok, i think the the tray motor died. I can manually open the tray so its not stuck. Any ideas? The item is also 3 months old! Are there any disassembly guides or repair guides out there so i can replace the motor myself? All help is appreciated. Thanks

    HTS 3450, 2 years old,usually the tray will not open, I toke it appart and it seem that it is a mechanic problem in the disc tray enclosure, it has all kind of hooks to make sure the reading eye will close tight as the disc tray closes, so i guess some of the hooks (all plastic made) got tired and need more force to open, as i see the motor is trying but cant push the tray open without my help, while some times its opening easily. best and easy way is to replace the all tray its only 3 connectors, but I dont know where to get it, any recommendations?

If the tray is not working, check the belt in the motor, maybe it is lose, or check the limit switches, maybe one of those is malfunctioning. actually they has 3 wires.

@PrimePub : Have the tray replaced by manufacturer or ask manufacturer to ship one to you.

@at_viper : If still under warranty (i think so if only 3 months old) just contact your vendor about it.

The button to open/close my Philips DVD player Model DVP5140/37 is not functioning, and the remote does not have an open/close button. How do I fix this??


Here are some troubleshooting steps to get you started to resolve the issue.

First, Try to unplug the unit for 10 seconds from the power source. Wait 10 seconds after unplugging and reconnect. Try to open/close and see if the tray opens. This may resolve the issue as this is what Philips Technical Support says to do in this situation on their website.

Also, you should be able to eject with the remote. To eject or open the disc tray with the remote, you need to hold the STOP button on the remote for 5 seconds.

Hope this helps! If not, I was told to give a direct phone call to Philips Customer Care Center from 12pm-8pm EST Monday-Saturday. Their phone number is 1-866-323-9916. Have the device/unit ready when you call with the Serial Number handy.

Warm regards,
Craig

I want the code to play Zone 2 DVDs on my DVD which is set for 4


1) Turn on the player with no disc in the tray
2) Press the Open/Close button to open the tray
3) Press the info button, the firmware version shows up (
4) After the version info disappears, close the tray again by pressing the Open/Close button
5) At this point, it will show "no disc" at the top. Press the Info button again, and this will disappear. If the "no disc" does not disappear then try again by using the REPEAT button 
6) Now type the code that applies for your region (R2 is 57538). A '2' will briefly show up at the top left corner
7) Now press 9, and 9 will show up in the top left corner
8) Power off the player, and turn it on again. You'll have a multi region player

I've found the following codes at the 1080P7 hack:
R1 - 29334
R2 - 57538
R3 - 56732
R4 - 76884
R5 - 53814
R6 - 24462
