Philips PET710 DVD player shows 'no disc' when disc inserted

Hi

I have a Philips PET710 portable DVD player, which has all of a sudden stopped playing discs. When a disc is inserted, the message 'loading' appears but then changes to 'no disc'.

This happens with every disc inserted.

Any suggestions to fix it would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.

This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works

My portable dvd player has sound but no picture on the screen. pl


If you still have use of the on screen menu functions, you can try using the restore to factory setting option in the preferences section of the set-up menu. Press the setup button on the remote control and use the up and down arrows to find and highlight the preferences section, press ok to enter the sub-menu.In the sub-menu use the up and down arrows to find and highlight the default option. Press ok. This will reset the dvd player to the factory settings. If you do not have the use of the on screen menu, you can use the a/v outputs to a external monitor or television to perform the abouve procedure to try to restore the dvd player to normal operation. If all this fails you can call Phillips customer support at this telephone number. 1-888-744-5477 They will be able to help you, either solve your problem or get the dvd player serviced.I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Philips DCP750/37 shows "wrong region"


Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term. You won't find that exact model, but one of the codes in the video should work. Note that you will only be able to change the region code three times on a Philips - after that you will be locked out. So change it to Region 1 once, and never change it again.

WRONG Region error . Philips DVD65K


Each DVD player is designed only to read discs froma certian region of the globe, and they are labelled 1 through 6 (or ALL). Australian players are designed only to play Region 4 discs. United States discs are Region 1. It is illegal to change the Region code on a DVD player, so I can't tell you how to do it (ironically, it is the most frequently asked question about dvd players on Fixya.com - global world), but there are videos on YouTube that will show you how to do it - I would just enter "philips region code dvd" as your seacrh term.

Wrong Region code error


http://www.amazon.com/gp/cdp/member-reviews/AGHZ9UF25BLCU/ref=cm_cr_dp_auth_rev?ie=UTF8&sort%5Fby=MostRecentReview

Click on the link and read the review of your product.
The region is set at the factory for your market for DVD movies in your area. Phillips says the warranty is void if you change the settings, but if you read the review he will tell you that you can make it region free.
Proceed at your own risk.

Try a laser cleaner.

Failing that, could be laser tracking problem due to hardened grease on the laser mounts.

Disconnect power and switch off.

Open disc lid.

With a clean finger, gently push the laser mechanism to it's outermost position furthest from the centre.

This will re-distribute any grease on the laser mounting.
