DVD player making noise...figured out that the laser is stuck...

We opened up our Phillips model dvd player and figured out that the little side wheels that adjust the laser up and down is stuck...and can't move the laser forward- which in turn is making the pdvd player to make a loud noise...is this something we can fix?

Why doesn't the open/close button on DVD player of DVD/VCR combo work?


Assuming there is not a forgotten tape stuck in the VCR side, the mode selection logic has gotten all confused. On the VCR side, a tape is grabbed and loaded to be played. There probably is an EJECT button that is enabled for later use. The DVD side is disabled so no buttons work. On the DVD side, the open/close button is enabled (if no VCR-side problem is detected), allowing you to place a DVD in the tray and close it to play. The VCR side is disabled so no buttons work. That's the theory. From your description a sensor on the VCR side may have failed or been damaged, causing the player to keep reverting to VCR and preventing use of the DVD side.

The dvd door will not open


The ray mechanism is probably stuck or dead. This is really easy to fix yourself if you're not worried about opening it up. Find a disassembly guide for that model and see if you can unstick it inside the drive (its a sliding thing on the side, not to be confused with the laser guides). If the actual mechanism has died then it'll need replacing. You can usually find them on ebay, just make sure the model numbers are right. email, with any questions.

Personal DVD player does not play


This unit is having a problem in the laser transport section of the player. The unit needs to be cleaned and cleared of all dust and debris impeding the operation of the laser transport operations. You need to open the compartment the the discs are put in and use a can of compressed air to blow clear all dust and debris from the compartment. Then use cotton swabs to wipe the laser transport clean of dust and debris. be very carful not to touch the laser lense with your hands. Use small amounts of Isopropyl alcohol to loose up any hard dust or dirt on the transport rails and gears. Check to see if the ribbon cable has become entangled with the transport.Make sure the transport operation is smooth and balanced. After doing a thorough cleaning, you can test the players operation by playing a dvd to see if it is working properly. If it is not working properly you can go to the set-up menu of the player and restore its setting to the factory settings. This can be done with the defalult function in the preference section of the set-up menu. Now you can try playing the dvd again.If you are still having problems, you can call Phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-888-744-5477. Give them the model number of your dvd player. Explain to them the problem you are having with the grinding noise of the transport heard when attempting to use the player.They will be able to tell how to get your dvd player serviced and repaired. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

2 discs stuck in console


WOW!!! I am so sorry that this happened. Nintendo products are really hard to open. If you cant wedge the game out with a small screwdriver, dont worry about the game, here are the directions on opening it. Just copy and paste to word so you can see the whole thing easily.

How to open your Wii Console Step by Step Instructions

To disassemble:
  1. Flip the device upside down and remove the small silver Phillips screw. Once out, remove the battery tray from the console.
  2. Next remove the rubber foot directly above this battery tray. Also remove the three square white stickers from the bottom of the Wii. The rubber foot and the sticker are covering hidden screws. Figure 3 provides a shot of where these screws are located. NOTE
    Hiding screws under stickers and rubber pads is a common method used by electronics manufactures to help increase the aesthetics of their devices, as well as prevent people from easily locating screws and taking apart their products.
  3. Unscrew the two Triwing screws and three Phillips screws from the bottom of the Wii.

Figure 3 - Bottom Screws


  1. Flip the Wii over onto its right side. Locate and remove the two rear rubber feet and the two rectangle stickers near the faceplate.
  2. Remove the two silver Triwing screws in the holes and remove the two black Triwing screws on the faceplate (Figure 4).
wiifig04.jpg
Figure 4 - Left side screw locations


  1. Flip the Wii upright and carefully remove the two socket covers. They come right out with a little wiggling.
  2. Remove the three black Phillips screws from the black plate (Figure 5). Note the one closest to the faceplate is the longest and will need to go back into that hole when putting the Wii back together.


wiifig05.jpg
Figure 5 - Top black plate screw locations


  1. With the screws removed, carefully pull off the faceplate of the front of the Wii. You will need to disconnect the red/black wire plug from the Wii to remove the faceplate completely. Figure 6 shows what is hiding under the faceplate.

  1. Remove black plate from memory/controller socket area.
Remove two silver Phillips and two silver Triwing screws from memory/controller socket area (Figure 7). wiifig07.jpg Figure 7 - Topside screw locations
Lay the Wii on left side (with the ATI and Nintendo logo facing you) and slowly work the right side cover of the console off the device.
This will take a little bit of force. If something appears to be stuck, double check to ensure you removed all the screws.
Locate and remove four screws holding DVD reader in place. Two are located in plain site in the middle of the unit. Two are located near the front of the Wii inside the DVD unit (Figure 8). wiifig08.jpg Figure 8 - The insides of the Wii
Slowly tilt the DVD player upward toward top of Wii. There are two wires that need to be disconnected before you can safely remove the DVD unit. One is a plug type of connector that only requires a little tug. The other is a circuit strip connector that requires you to lift the brown catch, which will release the pressure holding the strip in place (Figure 9). Do not break this!

My phillips dvd player (model DVP5990) is not reading disc at all no matter the format. any ideas?


This could be several problems. You should first try to clean the laser head with a cleaning disc. If this does not work you can try resetting the dvd player to the factory settings. This function is found in the settings section under preferences. Use you remote control to open the settings menu and use the up and down arrows to highlight the preferences section. Press ok to enter the sub-menu. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the default setting.Press ok. You have now reset the dvd player to the factory settings. Press the menu button again to escape the menu. All this information is in the owners manual on page (47). Try a dvd to see if the dvd player is working properly. If not you may have other problems that will require you to open the dvd player up to find the problem. These problems could be a laser lens that is not functioning properly or a problem with the transport that is use to set the dvd up for reading by the laser lens. For these problems it is best to have a qualified technician to troubleshoot the problem.You can call phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-800-744-5477. Tell them the model number of your dvd player and the problem you are having with disc player not reading discs. They will be able to help you get service for the dvd player.I hope this information helps you with your problem.

My dvd player is making a loud humming sound when i load up a dvd. it is the phillips dvp5960


Does the DVD player still work, even though it's making the humming noise?
The humming noise may just be normal for that machine. Turn your TV up louder .
If the player doesn't work, the drive is broken, and you would have to send it to Phillips if your warranty is still working. If the Player still works, check to see if the disc is warped or cracked, this'll make the drive unstable, and make the noise.

Hope my answer helped :)

Wrong disk problem


Then lens may need a damp isopropyl alcohol qtip run over it a few times, use 90%. If that doesnt work then try a cd cleaning disk to put in the player. The cd or dvd may also be too scratched to read.
