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..

Mcd288 problem


Try not to use any rental dvd discs or dvd burner discs. Go get a brand new dvd movie(again,do not burn a DVD disc and play in this unit.) and put it in see if it works? Should have at least 2-3 movies for testing.
If you have tried to put in some BRAND NEW DVD movies and still doesn't work,you have a problem with the unit.

DVDs & CDs will not play


If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
