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.

Re: Not able to read last files
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 Instructions:
Put the CD into the DVD player
(This should open up a region menu)
The last 2 steps are done on your remote control:
Press 0 for multi-region
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. Regards Mike
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.
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.
