Do I need a remote control to control the Philips magnavox model DVD 815AT. It plays the commercials on the video disc. When it comes to playing the movie, it keeps repeating itself and it won't go...


Usually most DVD's play movie trailers and sometimes advertisement before the movie will play. Once the ads or trailers are done it should go to the menu screen and at that point "play" or something like that should be underlined. If it is you can press play or select on the DVD player then the movie should start : )

Multi region code for philips hts 3090 dvd player


With your set on and without disc in the tray:

1. Press PLAY from your remote control
2. Press the following button sequence: 1590 2379 390
3. Press PLAY again

This will release the region verification in your home theater (region free). However, some DVDs (multiregion in particular) will not play, since they require region detection from the player unit.

I've done this to my 3090 and been using it like this for 3 years.

Unable to get play dvd or get picture on DVD channell on tv


If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.

Sorry. Best of luck.

Root


"Root" means the player is reading the Root Menu of the Disc, which contains the title information, chapter information, etc - it is nothing to worry about.
