Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player
To get your DVD out of the non working player, you have to look on the bottom of the case below the tray. There you will find a little slot, about 2 cm long x 2 mm wide. Through that slot you will see a white plastic piece, sometimes its on the middle of the slot and sometimes its full to the left of it (the front of the player facing you). Use something that can be inserted in the slot (I used a little knife) and move the white plastic piece all the way to the left, that will loose the tray. Then you will be able to open the tray using your fingers, nails or anithing that won't scratch the finishing of the case.

This is a power supply issue. One of the capacitors on the power supply board have likely popped (top dented outward, indicating failure), and needs to be replaced. It's a simple fix for anyone who knows their way around a soldering iron, and costs hardly 45 cents for the new capacitor.
