Display error


1. Is it a stand alone or have you get it hooked up to a PC?
2. If with a PC, Win Xp or Vista, Mac?
3. Is the unit new, refurbished, bought from ebay or from a dealer.

If the unit is more than 2 years old then the only solution is to get it repaired or buy a new one instead.There are instances where internal software gets corrupted or even in some models, memory battery has leaked or depleted.

Unfortunately there is no external reset for the unit. It has to be opened up and diagnosed with the use of a special diagnostic PC and software. The firmware may also need to be re-installed or updated.

Am afraid your only best bet would be to open the unit and check the inside. Easy enough would be memory battery (if ever present) since they look like a thick coin (Lithium 3Volts) but other than that, most repairs would need knowledge and familiarity with electronic component and circuitry, a service manual, a DVM, a soldering iron and even as earlier stated some specialized equipment.

Perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional or the nearest authorized Service Center.

Philips dvdr3455/37 won't come all the way on

I found a work around for the problem where I boot up from DVD then don't power it off. Th e following is what I did to accomplish this:
1) I created a DVD with the latest firmware for the DVDR3455 put on it.
2) I plug the unit in, then while powering on the player I hold in the DVD open/close button. You will eventually get the text "LOAD" on the front display.
3) I then manually open the DVD door (see "dvd won't eject" on fixya web site) and put in my DVD with the firmware on it and close the door.
4) When the DVD door closes the player will read the firmware from the DVD. You will see the text "COPY" and "BOOT" displayed on the front, then it will go back to "PHILLIPS".
5) If you have your TV still connected to the player you will see the 3 free trial of YES dvd displayed on the screen. Press OK and you everything should be working.

Then you just have to pray that you don't loose power or you will have to go through all of this again.

This is pain but at least I can still use the player and get more use out of it.
