My dvd player was working fine until not long ago. Now two things have changed:
-on the dvd player's display screen, there is a symbol in the bottom right corner that looks like : P-S
-when I select the dvd function, the screen is completely black (as opposed to the Dvd logo screen), and when a dvd is inserted, there is no video, just a black screen, and I can only hear audio.

Re: dvd function not working
PS is progressive scan, unless you have the player hooked up to a HDTV on its component inputs it wont play video, you need to locate button either on the front of the unit or on the remote for the Progressive Scan, this might be a good thing to look up in the manual as I dont know much about this unit.

Open the Philips HOME SCreen,...
Type on your remote: 13893108520
This will display all of the current settings for your player.
Region_Code: DVD(2) BD(B)
This will not change any settings, but will report your current settings. So it's a reporting function only.
To change your DVD region settings try the following:
Turn on player with no disk inserted
Press "Open/Close" on the remote control
Press 259 on the remote control
After enter the code 13893108520 again on the HOME Screen and the player will show region "0"
Now the buttons on the front of the player do not work anymore....
You will need to go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS....
Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions..... ;-)
It sounds like the circuitry which actuates the color drives for the screen are not working, this would ba analogous to adjusting for a B&W picture on a color TV you have color but the screen shows black and white. I would get a schematic for this set and measure the voltages on the color processor that connects to the screen since you know that the external jack has color. If possible I can help you troubleshoot this, if you need me to help out.
I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.
