Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player

DVD stuck inside, player won't turn on, standby light does NOT flash

Hi,

So I have had this player for a couple years and recently it started flashing the standby light, and I read about changing the c316 capacitor out and I did, and it worked great for awhile after that. But all of a sudden it's not working again, and the dvd player won't even eject. The standby light will show the machine's plugged in, and then when I press any button, it goes off for maybe 5 seconds and then just comes back on. I don't even hear any noise going on inside the machine. The capacitor is soldered in and everything, made sure the negative post was on the dashed side, and I know that all of the capacitors look fine, not bulged. What else can it be?

Test the capacitor with a meter to make sure it has the value stated on it.
the work on this unit is quickly exceeding its present value, most likely.
consider upgrading to a higher resolution unit if the fix is more expensive in parts and time than a new unit costs.
good luck

Sony BDP S350 bluray - unlocking to region free Yes, it is possible, but you'll need a programmable remote - most use the "one for 3/4/6/all". You can hack it by using the same code as for the bdp-s350. Follow the instructions exactly and it should work - mine does.

Hi,

Yes there is a hack to make the DVD region free, as far as I know there is not one for the Blu-Ray as yet.

You will need your original remote and a 7040 OneforAll remote to enable region free playback of DVD’s on the Sony BDP-S350.

Programming the 7040 OneforAll remote.

1. Press DVD
2. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
3. Press 0533

4. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
5. Press 994
6. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
7. Press 1891 (this sets key 1 – the DVD button flashes twice)

8. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
9. Press 994
10. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
11. Press 2552 (this sets key 2 – the DVD button flashes twice)

12. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
13. Press 994
14. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
15. Press 0953 (this sets key 3 – the DVD button flashes twice)

16. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice.
17. Press 994
18. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
19. Press 2214 (this sets key 4 – the DVD button flashes twice)

20. Hold the magic button until the DVD button flashes twice. .
21. Press 994
22. Press Magic Key (don't hold)
23. Press 0795 (this sets key 5 – the DVD button flashes twice)

Done - the remote is now programmed and ready to use


1. Now to make your player region free use the Sony remote that came with the player to bring it out of standby and wait while HOME is displayed
2. Make sure there isn't a disc in the machine.
3. Now on the OneforAll remote press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 (The blue 24p light on the player will start flashing)
