Philips DVP642 No Disc

Our Philips DVP642 has worked perfectly for over a year now it refuses to recognize any type of disc.  The initial blue  background appears and then the no disc message appears on the front panel.  Any suggestions are appreciated

    Have the same problem here, bought 3 at once, two were returned, third just went. Obviously just not a quality product.

Clean the disks as well as possible with cleaner and soft cloth. the problem is not the disks, but the fact that the DVD reader has become really sensitive.

if that wont help, open up the case (screws on sides and back), and clean the DVD mechanism and lens as best as possible.

you still might be SOL, but its worth a try since its out of warranty, and a replacement player is $60.

I have a Philips DVP642 DVD player. It has worked


First try a soft reset... unplug for 20 minutes.
Otherwise - the laser is dirty or misaligned.
A Repair shop can clean and align for about $50.
It takes specialized equipment and templates to align the laser - not something you can do on your own.

Lens cleaner discs don't work.

Not playing dvd saying no disc


You can try a cleaning disc. If the unit is less then a year old I would have it serviced under the manufacturer warranty. If you still need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

DVP642 DVD Player is only working in Audio mode


Mine does the same. Cannot get a picture using the Yellow RCA output. Use an S-video cable if you can - it should still work. If you get a black and white picture using the S-video output, go to MENU > VIDEO page and change the output from PyBywhateveritis to S-video and the color will come back. I only found out mine was broken when I needed to use the s-video cable for something else and tried switching to the Composite Video (RCA) to no avail no matter how many cables or TV inputs I tried.
