Phillip DVD Hard drive power failure

After a power cut I can no longer turn on my Philips DVD hard drive unit. Have tried unplugging etc with no hint of powering up even to stand by. Is it fried? is there an internal fuse issue?

THE DVDR3455H HAS A COMMON PROBLEM AFTER A FEW YEARS THE HARD DRIVE GO BAD, IT WONT BOOT UP
99% OF THE PROBLEM WITH THE PHILIPS DVDR3455 IS THE HARD DRIVE.
IT WILL KEEPING REEBOOT OR IT WILL HANG ON THE PHILIPS LOGO.
IT IS NOT A FIRMWARE PROBLEM IT AHARD DRIVE PROBLEM.
ONE THING YOU SHOULD KNOW, IF THE HARD DRIVE IS BAD YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO UPGRADE THE FIRMWARE IT WILL NOT READ THE CD OR DVD DISK.
AT THIS POINT IT NOT LOOKING FOR A FIRMWARW DISK BUT IT LOOKING FOR THE BOOT UP SOFTWARE.
OR THE LOAD CD WHAT PHILIPS CALL IT.

SOLUTION REPLACE THE HARD DRIVE WITH THE LOAD SOFTWARE INSTALL ON IT.
THE HARD DRIVE IS SOLD ON EBAY JUST LOOK FOR DVDR3455H YOU WILL FIN NEW DRIVE READY TO INSTALL THAT WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEM.

Cooling fan on Philips DVDR3576 runs on when the unit off?


I noticed the same thing on mine. I determined that the unit turns on the fan AND Hard Drive during the period of 11:59 to 12:00 BOTH AM and PM and continues to run until the unit is cycled on and off either with remote or by a program. I used a stethoscope to listen to the Hard Drive humming inside; when the unit is cycled off I could hear the Hard Drive shut down, and a second or 2 later, the fan shuts off. I had purchased several other new units thinking I would return the "defective" one. Testing them, (by setting the clock to 11:57 and wait) both other 2 units did the exact same thing. So I assume that's a software "oops" on probably all units.
My "solution" is to set up "dummy programs" to record for 1 minute after those time periods: like 12:03 to 12:04 AM and PM on a daily schedule, and I pick a channel I usually don't record. The 00:01:00 recording time and "special" channel number make it easy to quickly identify the unwanted "dummy programs" and I use the "multiple title delete" feature to periodically delete them.
So I accumulate 2 titles per day, but I prefer that to having the hard drive run all the time.
Incidentally, I talked to a sevice rep at Philips, and the only thing they could offer is to set up a return for refund. The Philips 3576H is, in my opinion, a fantastic unit and I think the little glitch is well worth the benefits of the features it provides. How did I ever live without it???

double check the firmware from philips website, but most likely that hard drive has an internal problem

Probably bad inverter board. It has a short in inverter board and as soon as it powers up it detects the excessive current draw and shuts the set back off. Open it up, unplug the power supply connections to the inverter board then try to turn it on, if you get a green light then the inverter is bad. Try E-bay for replacement board.

HDRW720 will only do demo mode


The error code has a Nucleus Group and Number followed by an Error Code.
The Nucleus 2100 references
DS_HDD_Communication
Check the communication between the digital board and the hard disk drive by querying the device type of the device type of the hard disk.
The Hard drive 282206200034 is no $399.80 available from partstore.com which you can just drop in since it is formatted. If you can find a hard disk which is rare due to the small size no one buys, it can be formatted to just drop it in. You will need the hard drive ( 120GB ATA), the PC communication cable 312278590017 $22.75 and the Service DVD 312278590710 $36.96 which will allow you to format the hard disk for the unit. I would do this for you but you might have other problems with the system which can only be found with more diagnostics after the drive is installed. Or it could be a drop in and go.
For the unit which is stuck in trade (demo) mode,
Unplug the unit.
Simultaneously hold the Stop + Open close while plugging in the unit.

Philips HDRW720 won't turn on


Okay. I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!

Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.

Once I cleared the disc out, I was able to re-set and re-start the unit.
