Well as your problem need some technical assistance well here is the resolution.

well if you know how to open the DVD Player and if you have all the equipments to open it than an than only do it by your own otherwise go to the service center of Philips and ask them to fix it for you.They will surely charge for this if your warranty has period expired.

Well if you gonna do it by your own than follow the instructions and do it carefully.

  • Unplug the player from any electric connection.
  • Secondly Open up the top hood of the player with the use of proper screw driver.
  • Than Look for the tray weather it has stuck with some other part of the player or not.
  • If not than look for the CD weather it has stuck some where ?
  • When you find the real problem try to fix it if it is ok to do it by self otherwise don't.
  • Than remove the CD out of it.
  • And Simply retry to check weather everything is ok or not.
  • Than close the hood of the player and you are done with it.
Well if you still not able to do it or if you had any other quarries in your mind please do reply me.

    Well it seems that the spring or a slide belt had some problem, I guess they might be loose. How long you been using this player? Had you ever gave it for service if not than you did a big mistake, well now if i come to the point your player need some servicing. And specially your tray need to be checked.If you try it by your self can damage the player so I might not ask you to do it by yourself.

We have a red light flashing on the front of the tv.It shut off and we don't know how to turn it back on.


A red flahing light is sometimes a Standby Mode. Does the power button on the remote turn it on.Sometimes the remote has multi funtions and you need to select TV for it to work.Try using the Power Button on the TV.Good Luck.

How do you open the tray on the ps3. the power is on and im on the main ps3 menu but when i push button to open it just beeps


There is no tray on the playstation 3. It's slot-loaded drive; meaning it pulls the disks in and spits them out without opening a tray like you see on a desktop PC or a Xbox. If it's just beeping then that usually means there's no disk in there. The best way to check is if you see a blue light beside your red/green power light, then there's a disk in there. If it's just your red/green power light, there's no disk inside.

Unit on standby mode only, the dvd rack didnt open when open button was pressed.


Turn off and unplug at mains Plug back in and turn on press standby button so power light come son. If pressing open button on player (rather than remote) doesn't work it may be a disk that is not sitting properly in the tray. You could try sliding a very thin blade (preferably something with an insulated handle!) gently in the top of the tray to press the disk downwards whilst gently prising under front edge of the tray with a small screwdriver. If you can manage to press the open button at the same time as doing both these things it may help.
If that fails to solve the problem it may be a broken drive belt or worn cogs in the tray operating mechanism. DVD players are so cheap these days that repair is seldom worth the expense.

My dvd/cd try does not open when i press the eject button say "locked"


That means your trays are on Child Lock (this is a safety feature to prevent any accidental opening or closing of disc trays by small children when listening to your favorite tracks.)
To solve this, simply switch off your radio to Standby and hold the power button...whilst holding the power button, press open on the tray that is locked....the system will display UNLOCKED on the display of your hi-fi.

That should be it. To lock the tray....repeat the same process on the particular tray u want locked.
