SOURCE: cd not reading

Hi Tom,

With reference to your Philips DVDR630VR DVD Recorder / VCR Combo - no CD play & no DVD recording, a couple of ideas.

Perhaps what is needed is a bit of cleaning of the laser eye. Rather than recommend that you open the unit up and do a manual cleaning, maybe you can try using one of those CD cleaners that are available in most computer shoppes. It looks like a regular CD except that it has a small soft brushlike protrusion on its surface, the function of which is to clean the lens of the DVD's laser eye.

I should also mention that at other times, a DVD recorder can be rather "choosy" of the blank discs it will accept. I was made to understand that Philips recommends Sony, TDK, Imation, Verbatim, RiDATA, Panasonic, and most other known brands to be used when recording but none of the generic brands.

Should the above be not corrective, pls take into consideration the length of time the DVD has been used. I understand that Philips recommends regular inspection and maintenance after every 1,000 hours of use. In some instances, the laser eye simply burns out, deteriorates or cease to function. Further, there are likewise instances that it needs re-alignment/calibration. Am afraid that any of the aforementioned conditions would require that you seek the services of a qualified technician for a hands-on repair job. Alternately and probably better is to bring it in to a Phillips Service Center. Any of these services required specialized instruments & tools and not only basic electronics.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Laser won't read?

yes.its the problem of laser .it is called CCD lens that is the problem.it needs cleaning if dust is collected on the lens or replacement if the ccd is weak.so its just clicking and nor reading the discks.

SOURCE: my 4 year old APD 3955 stopped working. You can

Check the lens, sometimes dirt gets in there. Try to run a DVD cleaning disk... they are sold at many places, they are cheap and you can still use them for cleaning your CD players and DVD players at home. This should fix the problem.... if not ... try to shake the DVD player gently to remove any foreign matter that could be stuck somewhere...good luck!

With the power turned off, open the DVD Player, and then open the top where you load the DVD into the player. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser is attached to a transport assembly that moves the laser diagonally outward in a slot. 1. Slide this assembly outward to the end of its track. 2. Slide the assembly back inward to the closest inward position. 3. Repeat the process of sliding the assembly outward and then back inward.4. Put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. This helps to calibrate the laser head assembly movement. When the music CD is finished playing. 5. Put in a DVD, and you should have a working unit again This is a factory solution from Mintek that was given to a customer who ask for help with the forever loading disc problems. This solution may work on other models of portable DVD players. Most portable DVD players use this type of transport mechanism. Try this solution it might work for you.

With the power turned off, open the lid and then open the hatch where you put the DVD into. Locate the laser lens and notice that the laser lens is attached to an assembly that moves diagonally outward in a slot. First, slide this assembly outward. Second, slide it back inward. Now repeat, slide out then back in. Next, put in a music CD and let it play all the way through. (This re-calibrates the laser head assembly movement.) When the music CD is done playing, put in a DVD, you'll have a working unit again. I had to do it twice...

Wont recognize burned disks


This does sound like a defective drive, most likely a laser / reader issue, because the refractive properties of the CDR is different from a "pressed" disk it looks like thia failed TOC seek issue, the head starts at the center of the disk and reads outwards, the click noise is most likeley the head reaching the terminus (the outer limit of the motorised movement), the drive then unable to find the TOC gives up and decides the disk is unreadable. if this drive is within the manufacturer's Warrantee period I would reccommend sending it back.
