Question about Philips PET710 Portable DVD Player
Making noise like its trying to open video but never shows anything on screen, just keep making the noise like its going to at any moment.
There are 3 possible causes for this problem:
1) Dirty lens - clean the lens with a lens cleaner or a non-abrasive foam cleaner on a cotton swap & leave to dry. If this doesn't work try the next option.
2) Hardened grease on the laser track - If the track grease hardens, it will impede the movement of the laser. - Turn the device off, and GENTLY push the laser to the outermost position from the centre. This will redistribute the track grease. Try a disc again.
3) If 1) & 2) haven't helped, then the problem is most likely a faulty laser or mechanism, which would have to be replaced.
