Sony dvd player makes noise when turn it off


It is in the standby portion of the power supply which runs 7/24 if the unit is plugged into power.

Hear noise when power on


This is normal as the device is checking for a disc that may be loaded in the unit. The fan should also start running when it is powered on. If the noise continues and can be heard over normal volume levels, this may be a fault.

How to set the clock on vcr/dvd.


Make sure the antenna//cable TV connections are correct. Channels are set. If this unit is connected to a cable/satellite box, select the local PBS station on them to set the clock automatically.

There's an Auto Clock Setting. "This Unit can set the time and date automatically by reffering to a PBS station.". But I never had to do that, I just went to Setup and it already knew what the date and time was.

"Note: The clock may set itself automatically after you connect the antenna/cable signal and plug in the power cord. Only the analog PBS channel signal is effective for auto clock setting. The unit receives the clock data at 12:00 A.M./P.M. from the PBS channel when the power is off.

1 Press [SETUP] and use the up and down arrows to select "General Setting", then press OK.
"General Setting" menu will appear.

2. Use up and down arrows to select "Clock" then press OK.
"Clock" menu will appear.

3. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto Clock Setting", then press OK.

4. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto" then press OK.

5 Press SETUP to exit.

6. Press STANDBY-ON to turn off the unit.
This unit will search for the time only when the power is off. Leave it off for several minutes to give this unit time to set the clock.

If the unit chooses an incorrect PBS channel, set the PBS channel manually by following the steps below:

1. Select "Manual" at step 4, then press OK.
2. Use [the number buttons] or up and down arrows to enter your PBS channel number, then press OK.
3. Press SETUP and turn off the unit.

If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll type up the instructions for what to do if you need to actually set the clock manually.

Unknown disc error and whirring sound!


Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.

No Power


IF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH A SOLDERING IRON THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE FIX, IT IS SIMPLY A MATTER OF FAILED CAPACITORS ON THE POWER SUPPLY COMPONENT BOARD.
USUALLY A PAIR OF THEM OR MAYBE 3, VERY SIMILAR TO THE SAME ISSUE WITH PHILIPS DVP-642 MODEL.
REMOVE THE TOP <WHICH YOU HAVE TO DO TO REMOVE THE DVD> AND YOU WILL SEE THE BULGED OUT CAPACITORS, THEY WILL PROBABLY HAVE GUNK ON TOP OF THEM.

Philips dvdr3455/37 won't come all the way on


I found a work around for the problem where I boot up from DVD then don't power it off. Th e following is what I did to accomplish this:
1) I created a DVD with the latest firmware for the DVDR3455 put on it.
2) I plug the unit in, then while powering on the player I hold in the DVD open/close button. You will eventually get the text "LOAD" on the front display.
3) I then manually open the DVD door (see "dvd won't eject" on fixya web site) and put in my DVD with the firmware on it and close the door.
4) When the DVD door closes the player will read the firmware from the DVD. You will see the text "COPY" and "BOOT" displayed on the front, then it will go back to "PHILLIPS".
5) If you have your TV still connected to the player you will see the 3 free trial of YES dvd displayed on the screen. Press OK and you everything should be working.

Then you just have to pray that you don't loose power or you will have to go through all of this again.

This is pain but at least I can still use the player and get more use out of it.

Dvdr3455/37 stopped working


I had the same problem - and here is how I fixed it.

When it was booting/re-booting I ejected the disk (I needed it out anyway since I assumed the unit was dead.) After ejecting the disk it display "load" on the unit. I read in another message board that this means the unit is looking for the firmware disk. I went to http://www.usasupport.philips.com/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=DVDR3455H/37&subCat=DVD_HARDDISK_RECORDERS_SU_US_CONSUMER

I followed the instructions to make the "upgrade CD" and inserted into my DVR. My unit then powered up normally. I went ahead and upgraded the software and it did happen again (the re-boot cycle) until I entered the date/time.
