Question about Philips DVD640 DVD Player
It plays very few DVD’S, and this happen after numerous “INSERT” and “EJECT” commands. Usually after some time I get the message “NO DISK”
It plays a significant larger number of VCD’S inserted. Maybe the 30% of them. Same amount of MUSIC CD’S.
All DVD’S and VCD’S are in good shape and able to play in a cheap Chinese DVD player.
Lens cleaning done with no success.

Take, if good batteris from the remote controller and recycel the unit, and by a better one. I have the same problem, recordings will stay on the dvd only a short thime readable and later the disk is empty.
Sorry my english.

You can call Phillips customer support at this telephone number 1-888-744-5477. Tell them while using the disc player the unit failed to eject the disc and ask the for a way to solve the problem. It is best to talk to them in this case as the solution will involve a opening of the unit to figure out what has malfunctioned to cause this problem. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

the laser is probably no good or the tiny motor that spins the disc is no good.there is a clamper assembly that goes in the hole in the disc.turn it and see if it spins freely.there is a bronze bushing on the top of the motor driving it ,and a small drop of light oil on the bearing will make it work again if it is gummed up..if the motor does not get the disc speed from 250 to 600rpm,fast,the laser does generate the proper info and the computer says error.yes the motors can be replaced,but the cost is as much as a new one

Hi I am vortash I think you may just need a cd CD cleaner to cure your problem , most people overlook that DVD's need to be cleaned now and again as dust collects on the laser lens and sometimes just need cleaning ,
Get yourself a cd disk cleaner one that has both a fabric felt side for polishing the lens and a brush side for cleaning it ... Regards Vortash

the laser lens on the optical pickup is dirty or scratched. to clean: buy a disk cleaner and use it per instructions. if it doesn't help, you can do it manually. remove the top, remove the top off of the disk assembly (you may have to remove the whole assembly first) until you see the lens. be careful with the cables and wires. use a lint-free swab (not a q-tip and not your finger), gently wipe off the lens. replace the covers and test. if it still doesn't work, it may be scratched or damaged. in which case, it needs to be replaced.
