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.

    Yes, leave in the outermost position.

    As soon as it's powered up it will move back to the correct position.

Blu ray shows the "Blu ray Disc" Logo on TV screen and then just show a black creen

Hi! and welcome to Fixya!

It looks like your tv is unable to handle the output video resolution from your bluray. The reason why you do not have picture on the tv screen after the bluray disc logo appears.

You can follow the instruction below to set the video resolution on your player to its lowest resolution:

1. Using your bluray remote control, press the following buttons in order... STOP button (press and release) ....HOME button (press and release)....POP UP/MENU button ( press and release )
Note: press the buttons in order with 1 second interval. Make sure tv and bluray are ON when you try this. If first attempt nothing happens, try this again.

2. When the home menu screen appears after doing the above instruction, you can set the video resolution again manually. Follow the instruction:
Using the BD remote control press HOME button > then go to SETUP > select screen settings > then change OUTPUT VIDEO RESOLUTION to Auto > change also 24P OUT to 1080P // set the BD-ROM 24P OUTPUT to Auto

The next time you turn on the bluray player you will have picture again.

Let me know if this works!

I have a LOGIK 1TB freeviw Recorder and the following message keeps appearing on screen 'Can't schedule recording. There is already a timer at the same time on this channel.' Ther is not a timer recording...

Check that there is no recording set! Go to Menu and then Library settings and delete anything showing! This should clear the message showing again!

This problem is easily fixed! I also have a BDP-S350, and had the same issue on "Crank 2-High Voltage". The fix is to put a USB memory stick into the port at the back of the player, 1GB is plenty big enough. This film and others play fine on PS3's or anything that has internal memory, but the 350 needs a memory stick permanently fitted. Also, make sure you have the latest firmware update on your player. Happy viewing!

Does show anything on the screen

If nothing shows on the screen, U may have a bad screen or video card in the machine. There really is no solution except to get it repaired if it is in warranty or taking it to a shop for repair, or buying a new unit

Nothing ever plays

You can try to reset the dvd Player to the factory specification by using the default option in the preference menu. Use the remote control and push the set-up button. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the preference option. Press ok and enter the sub-menu. Use the up and down arrows to highlight the default option and press ok.This will reset the DVD player to the factory specifications. If this does not work for you . Try cleaning the DVD lense with a cotton swab and a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. Put a small amount of alcohol on the tip of swab and rub it back and forth gently across the lense, until it appears bright and shines. Also check the laser transport and see if it need cleaning of the dust and debris that can accumulate in the in the
dvd compartment. Use cotton swabs with small amounts of alcohol to clean the transport rails and gears.Check to make sure the action of the transport is not impeded by any dust or debris. Also check the gears and make sure they are clean and look in good working order. After doing all this take a can of compressed air and blow all the dust and debis from the dvd compartment. Try playing a cd or dvd and see if the palyer is working properly. If not check the spindle and make sure it is snug and working correctly, holding the dvd correctly for the laser to read it. If it feels loose try using a drop of super glue to make it snug again.Try playing a cd or dvd and see if the player works correctly. If not then you probably are having a problem with the laser lense itself or the motor drive. They may have lost the ability to run under specifications due to useage or ageing. For these problems you should call Phillips Customer support at 1-888-744-5477. Give them the modle number of your dvd player and the problem you are having with it not being able to read discs. They will be able to tell you how to have it serviced and repaired. I hope this information helps you with your problem.

Dvd "unknown disc" message coming up

Have you tryed to use a lens cleaning disc yet. The laser lens on these players and recorders alike, must have the lens cleaned every oince in awhile. If that does not help, most likly you have a bad laser pickup assembly and you will need to replace the plaer as to have that repaiered, you could buy a new unit. Good Luck
