Try running a good quality dvd cleaner. After the cleaning cycle try a known good dvd & see if it plays. Hope this helps.

HTS6500/37 will not read DVD' s led screen reads no disc, however system will play CD's


If it plays CDs but not DVDs then the Laser is failing and just a matter of time before it stops playing CDs also.

Philips lx9000r 25S ome theater system Has suddenly stopped playing DVDs from Region 2 (no disc error) It will play DVDs from region 0 and CDs. Do not know access code, so cannot follow manual to change...


The Access Code is 0000 as default unless it's been changed

I think you'll find if it's not playing Region 2 DVDs that it's the same old Philips fault in that the laser has gone / is going.

It plays CDs, but not DVDs even after the laser lens cleaner that fixed my home theater dvd. When you load in a dvd, it clicks three times, says load, clicks three more times, then has disk error message....


Time to get a new one, probably. The laser for DVDs is different for CDs so the DVD laser or a component in that section has probably failed and at today's prices, get a new player with morre features for less than you paid for this one. You can keep it for CD playing. The fact that it plays CDs means most of the player works except the DVD laser circuit. You might look at the lasers with a magnafying glass (Unplug for 1 hour before that look) to see if you can see the 2 laser lenses and one is dirty. Not very likely fixable but it is a free try. Good luck.

What video format does this dvd player support.if i write a dvd it is not working in this player


Philips DVP3020 does not support popular vidoe formats such as DivX / xvid / mp4. so if you download movies from the internet and burn to a DVD, chances are it will not work. this philips player is very basic and can only play regular DVDs, VCDs and audio CDs. that is why it is cheap. you should try Philips DVP 3010 or 5140, even better the 5960.

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.


Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

Dvd player dvd3020


This is a known problem with the DVP3020.

I am assuming that your lens cleaner is for CD as well.

Although identical, CDs & DVDs store data completely differently, which means DVD players need two lasers to read both formats.

It sounds like the DVD laser has failed on your player, which is why it will still play your lens cleaner.

Unfortunately the cost of replacing the laser outweighs the value of the player.
The DVP3020 has been replaced by the DVP3120 which is far more reliable.

The DVP3120 with a multi-region modification can be bought for £17.99 from CheapestElectrical.
