Question about Philips DVP3050V/37

1 Answer

DVD won't play

We've own the DVP3050 for about a year, and it has worked fine. Recently when I put a disc in, the unit works and works on loading the disc, and I receive this error message: "playback may not be available on this disc." This error message comes regardless of the disc inserted. What is problem and how can it be fixed?

Panasonic BD35 won't play blu ray discs, but will play dvds


You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.

The dvd player side doesn't want to read all discs. Some it just flashes the loading and makes a clicking sounds, sometimes it loads up and freezes on dvds, it does this when i try to put in a cleaning...


The clicking is made by the laser head as it moves across the surface of the disk repeteadly trying to pick up the data signal and failing.
If it has used to work then it's clearly a dirt problem. If a cleaning disk has failed to work then the dust has gone all the way to the reading sensor. To clean it you will need top completely dismantle the unit access the optical mechanism, take off the cover and access the reading head - there blow with the can between the lens and the sensor then with a q-tip wipe the surface of the lens.

Wish I could. I have the 4600 combo and the VCR works fine. The DVD stopped working many months ago and just yesterday started working fine again. Worked fine for two days and then stopped, picture froze, and all I got out of it, is the picture is loading. Wont give me back my DVD nohow, so have opened the case and stole it back. Tray will not open at all. Trying some repairs, will holler if succesful

sounds like you need to clean the laser lens. Try using a disc cleaner first and if that dosent work then take aprt and find the laser lens, take a clean q-tip and put a little alcohol and swab the lens very carefully Good luck
