Hi, bought dvd ntsc format from US but can't play at our player. Are you able to assist ? Player type - Philips HTS3011/98


your dvd has regional code..only play dvd from where your purchase it.
you can do some hack.
try this

To convert this player for multi-region playback

This hack should work on all Philips DVD players with any firmware version, and other similar models by manufacturers such as Grundig, Marantz and Yamaha

Please note that if you experience problems with this hack you can obtain firmware version 7.03 and later by visiting the PhilipsSyndicate to obtain files that you can burn to a CD-R and flash your unit to the new version.
1a.

The following uses the machines own remote control:

We have heard reports that hacking some players using the units own remote control incurs a 25 change limit after which it will lock the machine in the last set region

We have heard other reports that hacking some players such as the DVDR-880 using the units own remote control can result in an inoperable unit, we recommend you use the OneForAll remote only and consult our Region Hacks forum for more information

  • Press the Play button on the player
    NB: You may need to press this button on the remote control instead
  • Press the 1 button on the remote control
  • Press the 5 button on the remote control
  • Press the 9 button on the remote control

Although the above may appear to work on many units, showing the correct display as indicated in Step 2, the hack may still not work. In which case you WILL need to use Step 1b instead! 1b.

If the above does not work, you will have to send the infra-red code RC6 (aka Codeset 4, Key 235 in nerd-speak) to your player with a OneForAll remote such as the OneForAll 6 (or URC7560) or OneForAll 4 (or URC7740) or OneForAll 4 Digital with the following instructions:

  • Configure your remote using the setup code 0 5 3 9
  • Press the Magic button
  • Enter the code 0 8 5, or if your unit requires a five digit code, enter 0 0 0 8 5
If you own a Palm Pilot, you may also use Pacific Neo-Tek's OmniRemote software to generate the RC6 code using a downloadable .pdb file.
  • Download the .pdb file into your Palm Pilot
  • Press the OmniRemote key marked as 955 Multizone
If you do not own either of the above units, it is possible to construct a cheap DIY solution by following instructions at the following website.

NB: Sending these codes to some players, such as the Philips DVDR-980, requires you to select a DVD player remote on the unit as the default IR device, as opposed to the DVD recorder remote it is factory set to. Please consult your player documentation to find out how to do this.
2. The onscreen display should show 11 spaces like this: '-----------'

NB: The actual display may differ slightly depending on the model of your player, may be shown on the unit itself, or may even not be visible on some models at all.
3. Using the number keys on your DVD player's remote control, enter the code 222 222 005 255. Note that this is 12 digits and the last digit will not show on the on-screen display.

NB: For players such as the Philips DVDR-980, DVDR-985 and DVDR-1000 units, you may need to use the code 121 212 005 255 instead. For players such as the Philips DVDR-880 you may need to use the code 121 212 005 00x instead, where x is the desired region, however this also works on other units including the DVDR-985 for setting a specific region. 4. Press the Play button on your DVD player's remote control 5. The onscreen display should now show the words No Disc 6. Power off your DVD player, wait 10 seconds and then power back on

My Philips dvdr 3450H if i insert a origial dvd says (not supported disk type) HDD work correct only won t read dvd what can i do? thank you


Hi,
You are not alone...Some DVD players especially Philips wont read the DVD s and
then it show no disc..
Just to make sure that such DVD is ok ,you can try to run them on your laptop.If the disc has problem laptop does not read either..
HDD works independently and no relation to DVD reader..if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER EYE.. ("cross your finger ! " )...

Just in case,quick remedy ,I recommend to buy a "wet DVD/CD laser cleaner " from any store.it is available even in Walmart..And clean the laser eye at least twice..
YOUR DVD itself should be clean and finger prints free as well....
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me
4 Thumbs Up for me to continue for Helping out the Community :)
Thanks

I have a philip 3962 it can not read DVD but it can read regular audio can you tell me what happend


hi,
i have got the same complaint some days ago. your players spindle motor is faulty.
its winding have some problem. spindle motor is that one on which the dvd spins. when u insert the dvd it is not rotating at the required rpm. thats why it is not reading. the problem will not be with video cds and audio cds . because it doesn't required a high rpm. replace the spindle motor. it will not cost a lot. its sure that ur problem will be solved.
if then also the problem remains,
your player's laser pick up unit have some problem with its DVD laser. there are two types of laser in dvd players. one for reading and playing audio cds, mp3 and video cds and the other for reading and playing dvds. in your player dvd laser have problem. don't think that these are two separate unit. the lasers are mounded in the same unit. if any of the laser get damaged you have to replace the whole unit.
if u need any more assistance feel free to contact me through fixya.
bellow is the image of laser pickup mechanism

Code for remote control of philips DVDR 3360D Hard disk / DVD Recorder


Also need to know what is the make and model of the universal remote you are using. Codes vary from one to the next.

If by chance your remote is Philips, the code for Philips DVDR's is one of the following:
0599, 0699, 1211

I have a Philips URC US2-PH5DSS and I use the code 0599 to control my Philips 3355 DVDR.
