Re: my dvd player stopped working and all i want to do at...

If you just want to take out a DVD here's what to do:

1.Take off the top cover:
- remove five screws on the back (indicated by little arrows)
- remove two screws on each side (there are only two, this should be obvious)
- when looking at the back of the unit, slide it up and towards you.

You should now be able to see your DVD. However there is a piece covering it.

2. Take off the top of drive:
- remove two screws, (one on each side). They are very small (probably black) and on the top of the cover, on the far left and right. They might be hidden under small rubber squares. If so, just peel the squares off.
- The cover should come right off.
- lift out the disc

3. Reassemble

good luck,

Constant standby mode on philips DVD player

Hi Johnny
Please follow these steps (even if you are sure you have done them correctly :)
1) Check if something is blocking the path between the remote and the IR sensor on the DVD player.
2) Check your remote control batteries to make sure you have fresh batteries inside(try with new ones to be sure)
3) Make sure that you have inserted the batteries according to the polarity that is instructed.
4) Remove all the cables but the power supply and try to see if it works. If it does you have some faulty cable which should be replaced.
5) At last if none of the above points helps then either your DVD equipment or the remote control is faulty. You may contact your vendor demanding you guaranty wright or a service shop for diagnose and repair.
Finally , please don't forget to rate my post.
Wish you best of luck.
Best Regards

Can't get green standby light to stay on, so can eject DVD from combined TV and DVD player.

First try unplugging and plugging back in then remove caseing and insert paper clip under locking mechanism and hit eject...your locking mechanism signals that there's no cd in it and so to it there's no dvd or cd...hope that helps:)

Standby light is blinking red will not open dvd or play at all

in a situation like this, there are only a few things you can do.

unplug the unit and wait for an hour or 2, and plug it back up and see what happens. if the unit is making any unusual noises (listen carefuly to it) then it will more than likely need to be repaired.

depending on the price, you might just consider going and picking up a cheap dvd player from wal-mart or something.

Unit won't power up from standby mode

The power button might be broken. Did you try the remote? It cant be a failure in the power circuit because you said standby light is working. if that light is working then the player should start up fine.

do you see the laser light come on when the disk spins if not it has probably lost power or failed, if so sometimes the laser head gets moved to close to the drive mechanism and the motor cant pull it out. i have found several of these that had this problem.
