Question about Philips DVP-3005 DVD Player
Cleaning the laser lens
1) Remove any CDs from the unit and unplug all leads. Turn the unit upside down and use the small, flat screwdriver to pop out all the little plastic and rubber screw covers.
2) Take your normal sized Phillips screwdriver and unscrew all the screws.
BE CAREFUL not to damage the eject/power button ribbon cable, as these are very fragile.
Take a cotton bud and careful place some of the alcohol on it (but not so much that it is dripping everywhere). This alcohol is the same (or similar) to the small bottle of alcohol which is in audio and video cassette cleaning kits. This is probably the best way to locate a source. Locate the lens (the circular glass part) and very gently rub the cotton bud around the lens in circular motions for about 30 seconds, being very gentle. Once done, flip the cotton bud over and dry the lens with the other end for about 10 seconds.
You have now completed the cleaning process. This often cures read errors and should always be attempted first. Reverse the dismantling process and put the machine back together, making sure you DON’T TRAP the eject / power button ribbon cable, as this can cause serious problems for you if it happens.
Power on the unit and try to load both a CD. If all works fine then CONGRATULATIONS on completing the guide successfully.
