Re: Philips DVDR7250h

Hello, I'm not sure, but you schould at least check/replace two 22uf 400v capacitors in the Harddisk PSU, who is located under the Harddisk.

just by looking at them you see nothing wrong- capacitive mesurement will most likely show - no capacaty - so just replace them and chek the remainder of the circuit for bad-soldering.

Dvdr 3455H/97 hard disk unable to reboot

from krystle i am an electronic tec:
what i have found the big difference between the philips dvdr3455h and the dvdr3575h is the
dvdr3455h boot from software on the hard drive and the dvdr3575h boot from an eprom.
the dvdr3455 has both booth software and movie edit software, if the hard drive become
bad in the 3455 or the software become corrupted it wil hang at the philips logo screen.
the dvdr3575h will boot with a bad hard drive or no hard drive at all you will you wont be able to
capture your video to the hard drive.
if the movie edit software become corrupt or damage when you press record button
it will just lock up the will need a software reload if the software become corrupt.

if you need a reload on your hard drie email me i will tell you what you need to do my email is

The DVDR880 displays "IS TV ON?" when it is in factory mode. You need to switch the TV to the DVDR input, as the on-screen instructions will tell you how to proceed.

Code for remote control of philips DVDR 3360D Hard disk / DVD Recorder

Also need to know what is the make and model of the universal remote you are using. Codes vary from one to the next.

If by chance your remote is Philips, the code for Philips DVDR's is one of the following:
0599, 0699, 1211

I have a Philips URC US2-PH5DSS and I use the code 0599 to control my Philips 3355 DVDR.
