Question about Philips DVD Micro Theater Shelf System (MCD288) System
Set up my new system mcd288. Tried to play a dvd sytem says close and wouldnt acept the dvd in.
My MCD288 developed the very same issue just 2 months after buying it. I kept thinking than my little niece had to do something with that, and only today, after 2 years decided to open it up and check. Well the problem is the GREY (not the black one) microswitch that is soldered on a little PCB atteched to the CD/DVD mechanism. You can check it on board with a multymeter. It stops working. I unsoldered it, opened it up, cleaned it and resoldered it. It now accepts CDs and DVDs and does not spit them out after a while. If only I could find a solution for the buzzing sound. It must be defective design. Maybe change C560 and C561 on main amp PCB with smaller capacity ones? Or maybe put away the toroidal transformer?
This is the LAST item I'll ever buy from Phillips. Period. They put an unfinished project on sale... Shame on them..
