Question about Philips DVDR3390/37 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Recorder will say "unknow disc type"

While we were playing a disc, the player stopped and when we stopped and started again the palyer will only say "unknow disc type" We do not have a user guide.

    Mine is doing this as well...drive gets noisy, then won't read disks. Seems to help to unplug for a few then try again..but can't live with it this way. I can easily chang a drive if I just knew which model burner to buy.

    Does anyone know what model computer burner will work? compatibility etc?

Take the disk out, power off, and on again. If it still says "unknown disc type" instead of "no disc," the internal disk drive is the problem. You can try to clean the sensor, but there is a good chance the drive needs to be replaced. I have a Philips DVDR3400 that did the same thing. I bought a regular computer internal drive, connected the power supply and IDE cable, and it now works.

I have burned an MP4 file (video) to a DVD-RW disk. It will not play on my DVD-player. What can I do to get it to play on the DVD palyer?


Some DVD players will not read rewritable disc's, others will not read mp4 format. If yours reads mp4s I'd try a different disc

You can clean the lens with a small amount of windex and put a little oil like 3 and 1 oil on the spindle motor shaft and on the sled rails. Good luck !

Unknow Disk - Please check disk again ERROR MESSAGE. Have tried previous burn disks the work no problems in the DVD player..... BUT disks I have burn as of today keep coming up with the above error...


The problem is you need to replace the laser assembly if the disc is spinning and not being read, or if the disc isnt spinning, you need to replace the mpeg printed circuit board attached to the laser assembly. Good Luck.

DVD PLAYER NOT READING DISC


Well I have been repairing dvd players a while now and the main problem spots are laser ,spindle motor, laser tracking motor and the biggest culprit and un suspecting one the lens cable .....most of them range from the lens cable to the spindle motor though... the constant movement of the lens in watching a whole movie causes the cable to unknowingly and slowly break and if the spindle motor is defective ,on inserting a dvd the disc spins slowly and you may hear the lens chirping ... so you can check those....
