It sounds as if you have inadvertantly locked your dvd player. Try using the code 136900. If this passcode is accepted, then access the general setup menu (using your remote) and choose the Disc Unlock option.

I hope this helps. I completely relate to the frustration of this very problem.

You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.

Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.

I hope this helps.

My DVP 3962/37 is asking for a password and I have no idea what to do! It is a Phillips DVD player.


Hi there,

This sounds like the child access control lock or the disc lock to me. One feature of Philips machine's is a child access lock which you can set to a level of your choice. When the machine prompts you for the password try entering the following code 136900 then press enter this is the default password code for this particular model (see your user manual page 44, the manual can be downloaded from the Philips website) you can change this password if you wish after this. To deactivate the child lock select Setup menu then pressing up or down select Parental. the the protection level is rated from 1 to 8 select the level you wish by using the up or down buttons and then press enter it will then ask for the password (default 136900) level 8 will deactivate the parental control.

Hope this helps,
James

Philips dvd player model 599037 is locked/asking for password?


I'm sure this problem is gone and past by now but what the heck I'll answer it anyways. The default password is 136900. The problem I'm having now is everytime i want to use my player it asks for the password, so how do I turn this off.

Not available in INDIA


That exact model has a region code and a voltage rating specification that is not compatible in India, therefore that model will not ever be available in India.

"disk locked"


Some DVD(like freebie from newspaper) needs password to see all the contents on it. If this is not the case, you might have parental control set in DVD system. Look for it in system control panel. boofoowoo
