Question about Philips Televison & Video
Hello, and welcome to Fixya..
It sounds like the laser may be starting to fail, if it hasnt failed already..
A good test to do, is to one, leave the unit turned on, for at least one hour, do not power it off.. Once it is warmed up sufficiently, it may read your disk.
Another note, If you are using disks that were working before, go try and purchase another brand of disk, sometimes when the players start to fail, they can still read and record a different brand of disc for a while. If you were using dvr-, try dvrw- ( a small five pack will be enough for the test)
Without knowing the exact model number of your Phillips i cant be specific.. If you could reply with the model number, there may be some other posible solutions, such as a firmware upgrade, or purchasing a replacement drive assembly.
Ill be waiting for your reply!
