    the unit works well when the POWER swich is turned ON, however after about 8-10 minutes, it stops working. I'm not even able to turn the power ON again as the POWER ON button on the DVD does not respond. I than have to switch off the car, take out the keys, and re start the car and than turn ON the car dvd and than it starts working and than again stops after about 8-10 minutes. It be either a radio or a cd that is being played in the dvd unit.

Hi Liorpe,

It is possible the Laser is not sliding all the way up and down its rails. Lint , dust, screws sometimes get in the way of the lasers travel to completely read a disc. They do start at the center of the disc and read outward. Sounds like if it will do 20 minutes or so and then quit, its not a heat problem so much as your laser has only 20 minutes of dvd play travel on it rails before it gets stuck. Seen it bunch.

My Philips model DVD750R/17 shuts off when playing a VCR tape after about 15 minutes. Why?

The most likely cause is a problem with the mechanism that moves the tape(when played a bit more weight is on the takeup reel.

Someone would have to open the unit so they can see the reels moving---watch to see if it begins to hesitate when further into the tape.

A trick that can help to see is put a fully rewound tape in and hit fast forward--let it go all the way to the end and rewind--if unit does not stop after doing that see what happens in play.

A worn drive unit that moves the tape can sometimes get better after run this way.

I have a PHILIPS DVP3962. My DVD player used to play where I left off watching my DVDs, but recently, when I turn it off and turn it back on, it starts from the beginning of the DVD. Dose anybody know why...

Resume function is wiped from the player's memory buffer whenever the unit is switched to standby (either with the [POWER] button on the main unit, the remote or turned off at the wall), the disc is removed, or the [STOP] button is pressed twice (either on the front or via the remote).

(The simplest thing you can try is to insert a DVD, play a few minutes of its main title, press [STOP] once, not twice, leave it for 10 minutes, then press [PLAY] - it should resume, and thus continue your movie from where you left off)

Resume is considered 'temporary memory' in DVD devices, and therefore is not intended to store the playback point of the disc permanently whenever power is lost, [STOP] is pressed twice or discs are ejected.

However, this is relatively normal, and is not a fault, but it can be annoying to the user.

The CD drive only plays DVDs and will not read CDs. When a CD is placed in the drive, the drive begins to make a weird clicking sound and eventually will stop trying to read the CD. But when a DVD is...

the dvd drive needs to be replaced cause the laser is getting weak which is why it will read dvds but not cd's. Once you replace the drive you won't run into that problem.

Ps2 wont play DVDs

Your PS2 laser is wearing out. When the laser starts to go, first games will skip... then eventually the PS2 will stop reading DVDs altogether. If you keep using it to read CDs, it will eventually stop reading those too and the laser will die altogether. Here's a website that will help you identify your PS2 model, show you how to replace the laser, and they sell parts and do repairs too

Samsung bd-p1400 will not play certain disks

My dark Knight DVD was only playing the first 4 screens and I burned the firmware upgrade to a CD. It took about 20 minutes from the time I inserted it for it to be complete, then it stopped at 4 again but took about 30 seconds and it began to play perfect.

My is a Cyberhome is a DVR 1200 DVD player

Try unplugging the unit from its power supply. Wait a few moments and then plug it back in. I have the same unit and that is what I have had to do. I am afraid that we have purchased junk. This machine "works" some of the time. It usually functions well as a player but fails on numerous occasions as a recorder.

Starting system cold, no sound for 2-3 minutes

Its not worth having it looked at. $100.00 for a new 400.00 unit? My unit is doing the same thing. Turn it on and 2 to 5 minutes later it may come on. Change to video 3 4 5 etc it stop again. Only works with a cold start. Something in the unit has failed and is heat related. My original Kenwood 20/20 recevier still works. Must be 40 years old. New products just last 5 to ten years max if your lucky.
