Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player

1 Answer

Little white boxes rolling through picture

I had the player under our video player when it started these boxes rolling through the picture quite often. I moved the DVD player on top of video player thinking it was the extra weight that was causing the problem. It helped for a little while, but now seems to be coming back. Not as often yet, but still annoying when we are wanting to watch a movie. It is not the DVD itself, because I can put the movie in another player and it works great. I have run a DVD cleaner through the player several times with no noticeable difference.
Thank you for your suggestions.

When playing the system it will start out with a very clear picture then after awhile the image will start going out like going into black and white, fading, or just going to straight static. How do I fix...


dirty contact surfaces on the end of video cable or the switch box terminal are suspect. you can use very fine sandpaper rolled to clean inside the plug on end of cable. a wiggle test should find the poor contact.

other cause, overheating video in game unit. clean vents

Iv plugged a areial into the tv and a freeview digital box but i cant get a picture????


If you see the freeview box menu then the TV is not the issue.
If you can not see the freeview box menu then the TV is either not connected to the input correctly or the TV is not on the correct input. I little common sense goes a long way , use a DVD player or other device to check the inputs yellow is video in red and white are audio. If the inputs work with a DVD player and not the freeview box then the box is defective .

How do I connect my Magnavox DVD/VHS player to my Element Flat screen TV?


Do you have a newer TV or a older one lets start with a newer models does your tv have 3 or more jacks on the back or front you should see a RED, YELLOW and WHITE if you have a HDTV you should see more. (LETS HOOK UP) Did your DVD/VCR come with a cables if not you will need to buy at least 2 they are called RCA cables Lets start with the dvd/vcr combo on the back you should see a (LINE OUT) this is where playback or your picture and sound come out. On the back of the TV you should see a (LINE IN) this is where you plug it in to. RED goes to RED, WHITE goes to WHITE and YELLOW goes to YELLOW. To Record you will need to hook up the line in on your combo and the line out to your tv. ( IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER T.V WITH NONE OF THOSE JACKS ) you will need to buy a RF- MODULATOR the are cheap it is a box that let you hook a cable wire to a little box and the RCA jacks to you combo and you will turn your tv to channel 3 or 4

My 1990 Ford F-150 suddenly quit running


Look under the dash, against the firewall. there is a little box. on the top of this box is a little button press the button for 10 seconds with the vehicle in the on position but not running position. That was the problem on my 1991 f-150, it is the first inertia switch. It is a safety shutoff incase the vehicle is in an accident or rolls, but a simple hit by the foot can trigger it.

DVD player only plays DVD in black and white - what's wrong?


Ok,
I'm not sure what you mean by digibox. Under what conditions are you able to see things in color? Is a digibox a seperate device you can get to work with the same connection as your player? If one device displays color on the same connection and another doesn't then that seems to rule out the television being the problem. Can you clarify a little more?

I bought a dvd player cobusa model dvd-224. the box stated that it can play Pal and NTSC dvd discs.How does one setup for pal region 5 disc? When I setup for pal I get a rolling black and white picture...


Check to be sure that the setup is correct. The picture you are describing is what happens when you play PAL into an NTSC unit. I don't think you are in PAL mode.

Koss KS5190 Display mode stuck


I'm not ranked and I'm not a Guru, but I can solve this picture rolling when the problem is "the video was accidently changed from NTSC to PAL and you can't see what your doing to get it back". You will need the remote control unit. First, remove the disc from the tray. Now, turn the unit off with the power button. The tray will close by itself. After the display on the front of the unit goes out, turn the unit back on using the remote control. This will let you know the remote control unit is working. When the power comes back on and the display on the front of the DVD player says, "NO DISC", with the remote control and (very important) while pointing the remote at the player, (Remember to point the remote before pressing any buttons) press the "Down Arrow" button 3 times. This will take you to the "Display" box. Now, press the "Right Arrow" button 1 time. This will take you to the "TV Image"box. Now, press the "Down Arrow" 1 time, this will take you to the "PAL/NTSC" box. If you have done everything as I have tried to clearly lead you blindly to your destination. Press the "OK" button 1 time and the picture on the screen will stop rolling and change from black & white to color. You will have now changed your video output from PAL to NTSC. If you press "OK" again, it will start to roll again. If this did not take care of your problem, turn the player off and try it again.
The previous problem solvers were on the right track, but the track was rough and they just about derailed the train. Thanks to them, I had a track to follow. I had no other information, except what I found on "Fixya.com". MR. CD

Rolling picture


Try the free view and see if the box is bad, then if it still does the sane thing, I bet theres a bad connection on the driver IC board, on a connecting ribbon cable, or a bad drive ic. These are things that a user should not attempt to repai, as there are no user replaceable parts inside this set and should be serviced by a train tech. Good Luck
