It's not operating perfectly. It doesn't always load the DVD on the first try. But once it's loaded, it plays through okay. I just kept moving the laser unit back and forth and cleaned the lens as recommended. I got the unit to where it would keep trying to load the disc and finally it recognized the DVD and started playing.

Screen has a "haze" over 1/3 of is okay

This may be due to a bad contact in the connector. If you unscrew and remove the back cover, there is bunch of wires coming from the LCD with a male or female, I forgot, connector on the end, which plugs into its counterpart on the main board. That connector may not be fuly plugged in. The chance that this is indeed the case is no more than 10%. Unfortunatey it looks like this the electronics failure - 70% or LCD itself - 20%

PET824 Portable DVD player

Try cleaning the optical lens manually. Just eject the cd tray and unplug the dvd from power source and remove the casing > Take a cu-tip with a small amount of alcohol on it and you will be able to see the optical lens in the middle of the carriage > Clean it a few times and let air dry for about 1 minute > replace the case and plug it back in and try loading your disc.
The other problem could either be an alignment problem which you will have to take it to a shop because they have the tools to do it, but is inexpensive to have done about 25-30 dollars. The worse case scenario is your optical device is damages and has to be replaced, which you might as well buy a brand new one because they are rather expensive. Hope this helps and always try the simple stuff first. Let me know if I can be of further help.

Philips PET824; the left third of the screen is Green

Call Philips to see if you are in warranty if the reset fails

No Disc message

Turn off the power.

Open the lid and gently push the laser mechanism to the outermost point of the slot.

Power on and try a disc again.

Also try cleaning the laser lens with a mild foam cleaner and cotton swap. Leave to dry and re-try a disc.

If neither work, then the laser is probably faulty. If the unit will play CDs but not DVDs, then this is a good sign of a faulty laser.

Remote not working

there is a way to test the remote contorl. get a radio and put it on the am section. aim the remote control towards the radio and push the buttons on the remote. if it is working, you should be able to hear some statics from the radio speakers. try it and let me know. if you do not hear statics, they you need to open it and clean it with rubbing alcohol. use q tips to do clean the button on the board but be careful not to put any alcohol on the rubber buttons from the inside, it will ruin the finish on that. it will destroy your remote. good luck.
