We were given a Philips portable DVD player on Thursday 8th Feb. 2008 as a gift and the open button where you insert the DVD is not working and it is not opening at all. As this was a gift I do not have the receipt and I believe the unit was probably purchased in Amsterdam.Could you email your response to email@example.com I look forward to your response as clearly this is a warranty problem and we would love to be able to use this player.It is a Philips Portable DVD PET705:00.The Pet805 is all I can find on your sight.
The problem is with the iTunes software. The old versions of the software worked in the portable DVD player but the new versions of the software disable the feature so if possible the only solution I know if is to revert back to older version of the software. That may not be possible for you though. I have been told it is because Apple wants to continue to monopolize and force people to buy there Apple cords and apple specific products.
I am hoping that a future version of the software corrects this error but until then I have chosen to disable the software update feature so that I can play movies on my iPod through my Portable DVD player

this problem you are encountering is common with most portable DVD player's. The problem most at times is coming from the flex or screen inverter. The flex eventually worn out as a result of regular opening and closing of the player.
The screen displaying white is a symptom of bad flex or inverter.
To confirm, insert a disc into the player, press play. You should hear sound coming out of the speaker of the portable player even as it is playing.
Furthermore, connect an AV cord from the portable DVD player to your TV and you will eventually find out that it is going to display on your TV.
Having done the above, and having confirmed that the flex/inverter is that cause of the problem, please get back to me so that I may direct you further on what to do next.
I have the same problem with my portable dvd player and found that cleaning the lens of the player using a non-alcolhol wet nap for cleaning eye glasses worked well. I also found the rail that the optics runs along while playing needed a very small amount of silicone greese applied using a Q-tip. You may find that the optic unit may be "stuck" somewhat but can be resolved by gently moving the optic along its guide using a finger.
This changed my unit from not working at all, to working intermittantly sometimes having to vary the player on and off to recongnise the disc. Hope this works

I havent seen this model But in the past I have heard this problem arise. It turned out that there was a mute button for the cd only on the remote and there was no indicator to show it. check for a cd mute or go into the cd play menu and check around in there.
