Question about Philips HTS3450 System

1 Answer

No Disk After inserting a DVD the player says it is loading and will whirr for a few seconds and then it dispalys "no Disk" on the TV screen. I have tried this with several DVDs that have worked just fine in the past.

    Ditto. Worked one day, and not the next. Bought it at Costco. I guess you get what you pay for (was only $179). The sound was great, and I loved the USB input and DivX. Argh!!

There are several causes for this problem.

1) Faulty DVD drive. Most drives have a dual laser, one for CD, and one for DVD. Check the player with both CD, and DVD. If it reads one and not the other, then it is most certainly a faulty laser. The laser assembly or whole mechanism will need changing.

2) Dirty or dusty lens. If the unit is kept in a dust environment, dust and dirt can be drawn into the machine by the fan. Try using a DVD lens cleaner. If this doesn't work try a CD lens cleaner. (Dual laser - see 1))

3) Condensation. Condensation can build up on the laser lens if the unit is kept in a humid environment. Also, this can be caused by a cold environment. In this case, condensation forms as the unit warms up. In either case, leave the unit in a warm dry environment for an hour.

Hi carlos,

Im assuming the disc youve been trying to use is new. Most people who have that kind of problem may find that the lens need special cleaning by a trained technician who may have to open up the set. For another quick fix, try another dvd cleaner (trust me, the expensive ones are usually better), and also wipe the dvd from the interior to the exterior!

Hope this helps,

Dvd in player but display says no disk

Check the regional code of the DVD you want to play. It is at the back of the DVD cover. It should be compatible with the regional code which your DVD player can play. If they are not tallying the disc will not be read

Unlock LG DVD

The following hack worked for my player. It works for most LG and Aiwa players too. To hack the player try this:
  • Power on player with no disc inserted and wait for "No Disc" message on screen
  • (using the remote) Press PAUSE
  • Press the numbers 314159 in order. (player should now show "COdE - -" the same as below)
  • Press the number of the region you desire ( 0 = any region, 1 = US&Canada etc.)
  • Press PAUSE
  • Power off the player for a few seconds..power back up and insert your DVD disc

DVD player problem

you allneed to make sure the disc is spinning in the player you should hear it whirr as ut builds speed listen closely to it and keep a hand on it to feel when the disk quits if it starts. its supposed to spin v ery fast do you think you could tell by the sound of it if its spinning fast. some times they make a clicking noise because the drive mounts have slid down in the case and allows the disk to rub or tap the case. please let me know what you find out. this is for all three problems. let me know the results so i can further advise you.

Cd's are ok but no dvd's...

Had similar problem. Found the disk was not rotating. Adjusted the torque on the hold down screws of the drive unit allowed the disk to spin. Still had some motor noise, but DVD would load.
