Question about Philips DVP-3005 DVD Player

1 Answer

Not able to read last files

My Philips DVD player opens the CD/DVD a bit slow. Then it plays for few files. After that it tries to play and a mechanical sound also comes as it is trying to do something. But nothing happens. No key on remote as well as DVD player works. Only way to come out is to switch off the DVD.

This sounds like your player is on the way out.
If it,s 2 years or more older, i,d consider getting a new player, they,re cheap now £20-£30 ish Plus.
The remote will be new-Batterys. The DVD Player laser is probably on the way out. The mechanical sounds are possibly the laser head moving up and down, struggling to read The Data on The Disk.
Heres all you can do before Binning it.
1:- try a laser head disk cleaning Kit.
2:- put new batterys In The remote.
3:- ensure the underside of the CD/DVD are clean of fingerprints And scratches.
Hope this Helps Mike @ Compurepair.

When I open my Philips DVD player and put in disc it will not load and tells me NO DISC. Please help!

You might want to try using a DVD lens cleaner disc like the Philips CD/DVD Laser Lens Cleaner SVC2330 or SVC2520 or equivalent from many AV accessory vendors to help restore the cleanliness of the player read lens, so that its ability to read discs is restored. These discs have a tiny brush stuck onto the "playing" surface that polishes the lens, when the disc is played as normal. There is often an audio commentary to go with the cleaning.

The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    My philips dvp3340 won't play region 2 dvds. is there a code to make it possible?

    There doesn't seem to be a code available at the moment but from looking around lots of dvd forums there seems to be a lot of people pointing to this site:
    Multi-Region - Phillips DVP3340v
    1. Download
    2. Write the file LG36868.IMG to a CD-R
      • It's a regular file, not a CD image
    3. Put the CD into the DVD player
      (This should open up a region menu)
      The last 2 steps are done on your remote control:
    4. Press 0 for multi-region
    5. Press PAUSE

    I've seen a few comments that say this works but I don't have the player to test it myself.
    I have downloaded the "Zoran" file though, unzipped it and scanned it for viruses and it came up clean.
    I hope this helps.

    Disc shows loading then error on all dvd disc

    Put a cd in the dvd player if it is marked that it plays cds... if it plays the cd your dvd laser is shot... cheaper to get a new unit. if it doesn't play a cd try cleaning the laser. and last but not the last thing try unplugging it for a short time then plug it back in... if nothing works get the one tool that fixs most everything...... take it to office depot and they can recycle the stuff inside and help keep the earth green...then onto wally world.

    Can i play Xvid files on my 622 dvd player? if not which kind of video files does it play?

    Im assuming your talking about the Philips DVD 622. You cannot play any video files unless they are burned to a CD or DVD in the standard DVD format. It can play certain audio formats but cannot play different video formats.

    This model cannot play real player video files your model work on DVD, CD, and on the following compressed file formats:

    Compression formats - MPEG1 , MPEG2 , DivX 3.11 , DivX 4.x , DivX 5.x , DivX 6.0

    Your player can play only mpeg , avi , and divx, not real player .rm files. I don't think there are many DVD that can play real player files around.

    Double-check your DVD player's user manual/spec sheet to see if it plays Mp3 format files at all. Find out, specifically what kind it can read.

    If your Mp3 disc is a DATA CD instead of an AUDIO CD, then nothing besides a computer is going to play it.
