Question about Philips PET702 Portable DVD Player

2 month old Phillips portable DVD player can't get past loading

Screen works, opened it up, the lens is clean, the lens carraige moves, but it won't get past the loading stage. (My son did throw up on it, so when it wouldn't get past the loading stage, I took it apart and everthing looks fine inside) Is there some reset button or something? some little thing? :( )

I'm grateful for any helpful suggestions.

Clean the laser lens gently with a foam cleaner using a cotton swab & leave to dry.

Also, with the power off, gently push the laser lenscarriage all the way outwards from the centre. There may be debris on the tracks.

My dvd player works but just keeps saying "loading" on the home screen.


the reason your dvd palyer keeps saying loading without working is that the laser or lens is weak or dirty.

the solution is for youto
1. use a lens cleaner to clean the lens,
2. replace the lens,

to replace the lens,
1.get a replacement lens,
2. unscrew the player from underneath,
3. carefully move the board that you will see, it is like a panel,
4. gently unscrew and remove the lens, and replace it with the new lens you got for replacement.

6. couple it back together,

test with a DVD disc.

My Phillips DVD player does not read any dvd's and is not playing. Just stays on the loading screen

If your DVD player is older then 3-4 years is possible to have dust on the reading lens. Best way to clean very well the lens , is to open the player and clean manually with cotton stick wet in alcohol. Try to not push very hard on the lens when you clean it .

Portable dvd player says loading but wont play

This is because of the problem with the pickup unit.. Your try to clean the lens with the help of the lens cleaner, if the problem still persist then open the panel, clean and apply the white grease on the moving parts of the Disk reader.

Caution always remove the main power before open the panel.

Error code on Panasonic LS50 portable DVD player

I purchased my LS50 over 16 months ago. I had a H03 error before and it went away after sitting on the shelf for three days. It worked ok for another couple of months and then stopped again. The screen says reading but the motor is not spinning. i pointed out that the laser lens is in the wrong place. When at resting location, the lens should be parked near to the spindle in the middle. The mechanism to move the lens backward and forward sometime get stuck at the end of its travel - furthest away from the spindle. If your player is out of warranty, then you maybe able to try this. Open up the bottom cover by taking out the screws - 10 or so. This will reveal the lens and motor module. Flip over the model and you should see the gear and shaft for the lens. Move the gear so that the lens move towards the centre. Click the covers back into place , reconnect the battery and try. If it works, put all the screws back. Mine was fixed this way but this is not a gaurantee that this will work on yours. Good luck.

Forgot to mention. You can also clean the gear shaft in case there are small particules stuck to the grease and affect the movement. After cleaning, apply a tiny bit of grease just to lubricate the moving shaft. Not too much. I am glad that the instructions help.
