Question about Philips PET824
The player will spin the disc for a couple seconds, saying "loading", then it will stop and say "no disc". Any suggestions?
I had exactly the same problem with my PET824. At some point I found that the player only plays CDs. With DVD it looked like it simply does not detects them as if there were no disk at all.
I tried the two recomendations posted here. Unfortunately I tried them both at the same time so I don't really know which one helped, but now player works fine and reads DVD again, even DVD-RW and DVD-R DL.
First, I moved the whole laser assembly to the most far point away from the center and second I rubbed the lens of the laser with a cotton swab soaked in pure (70%) alcohol, despite how carzy this might sound, but, yes with pure alcohol and these two steps worked like a charm. First thing I noticed that even loadind CD now takes twice less time as it used to be.
The player purchased at the end of 2006 and was in moderate use.

Turn off the power.
Open the lid and gently push the laser mechanism to the outermost point of the slot.
Power on and try a disc again.
Also try cleaning the laser lens with a mild foam cleaner and cotton swap. Leave to dry and re-try a disc.
If neither work, then the laser is probably faulty. If the unit will play CDs but not DVDs, then this is a good sign of a faulty laser.
