    have been using them with no prior problem

  • Maverick123 Feb 17, 2008

    where would i clean it? Do I take the unit apart. It is beyond warranty.

  • Maverick123 Feb 17, 2008

    thanks for your help. After playing with it this afternoon the dvd drive does not recognize dvd's that have played on it before as well as any dvd's put in. Shows as Unknown disk.

    I think it may need a new dvd recorder/player. What are your thoughts?

Hi,

Did you try using a lens cleaner?

    There might be dust on your lens that is causing the problem.

    You can buy a special cd lens cleaner from any electronics or computer shop. Try this before opening it up.

    It could either be dust on the lens or the lens unit has simply malfunctioned. If a disc cleaner doesn't work...I would advise buying a new one. It would probably be expensive to fix it out of warranty.

Are you using DVD+r 's?
If so try using a DVD-r as some dvd's will not read the +r's and will come up as unknown.

    So if warranty has expired, give it to an authorized repair station to check what the problem is.

    It is not recommended to attempt to clean inside or repair by yourslf. Some relative experience is needed.

    If you have decided to buy another no problem to disassemble this before , and try to clean lens eye, inspect any belt gear etc, so to have a last attempt and a better conclution.

    perhaps no result but you would have everything you can.

    GuruOOD LUCK !!!

I would guess that it's an incompatible disk format. If your burning software allows you to pick different types check the Philips manual for a compatible format

Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.

Some units jusy won't play certain types of recorded DVD discs. I would transfer one to a DVD+R type and see what happens. Buy a good brand like Memorex.

Hope that helps...

Wont play saying unknown disk


If the region setting is correct and won't even read a cleaning disc, there's not much you can do. Either the DVD drive or the Main board (aka MPEG board) is faulty and will have to get it repaired. I'm not sure about UK, but in Australia, Bush manufacturing warranty period for DVD players is 12 months.
