Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player
Hi, few years ago I bought Philips DVP642 player and was realy happy with its performance till the last year. When I was trying to power it up - display was showing me the word "Loading" and then it hangs. I tried to press the Open Tray button and display showed OPEN, but tray was still closed. Then I bought the same player again, and it worked great for almost 2 years with no problem till today. This time I can't even turn it on - the light on the button just flashing -that's all. I will be really thankfull to anybody providing me with a solution/ advice on it because I love this player very much. It plays everything, especially Divx files and PAL DVDs which I am usually watching. Thanks in advance
To open the tray this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it. After the unit is powered on: 1)Hit the "Open/Close" button 2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down with practice) 3)Tap gently, yet briskly with fingertips at area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to I think the problem is that the tray becomes unbalanced somehow. Because when a DVD is in, the drive opens fine, only when there is no disc do you have to tap on the unit.
