The error code has a Nucleus Group and Number followed by an Error Code.
The Nucleus 2100 references
DS_HDD_Communication
Check the communication between the digital board and the hard disk drive by querying the device type of the device type of the hard disk.
The Hard drive 282206200034 is no $399.80 available from partstore.com which you can just drop in since it is formatted. If you can find a hard disk which is rare due to the small size no one buys, it can be formatted to just drop it in. You will need the hard drive ( 120GB ATA), the PC communication cable 312278590017 $22.75 and the Service DVD 312278590710 $36.96 which will allow you to format the hard disk for the unit. I would do this for you but you might have other problems with the system which can only be found with more diagnostics after the drive is installed. Or it could be a drop in and go.
For the unit which is stuck in trade (demo) mode,
Unplug the unit.
Simultaneously hold the Stop + Open close while plugging in the unit.

My dvd hdrw 720 won't play dvds like it use to .... it now says disc is does not match the player HELP (this has never happend before) had it for 3 years now


DVD opticals (the part that reads the discs) do fail. You are describing a classic optic failure. Check into the cost of repair - it can be steep.

Philips DVD hard drive recorder HDRW720 locks up


Do you have a disc locked up inside?

I found that there IS a manual release for the disc tray UNDERNEATH the unit. It is a sort of toggle lever that you have to slide to the other side and that releases the disc. The Manual does not even mention this manual release lever!

Also, it may be hidden or covered by a paper like cover.

Run the diagnostic software by unplugging the unit. Hold the Play while reinserting the power cord. Continue holding the Play until the diagnostic program is displays NUC XXXX where XXXX is a series of numbers. Once the diagnostics is finished it will pass or fail. To return to normal operation unplug the unit and reinsert the power cord after 15 seconds or so.

Philips HDRW720/17 won't turn on


I have a DVDR725H, which is the same as a HDRW720 but has a 160GB hard disk.

This error code (FAIL 0900 05) is displayed when the DVD drive has been completely removed/disconnected or is not responding.

Note that the DVD drive (VAD8041) is apparently known to have its DVD motor driver chip (SA56202TW) getting destroyed due to overheating. There is a repair kit available (about 10-15 EUR) that comes with a zener diode and two capacitors (order number 996500029182).

Note that it might be easier to get some used philips DVD+HD product that has the same DVD drive, e.g. the DVDR610 or DVDR615 and use that as a replacement.

Once I cleared the disc out, I was able to re-set and re-start the unit.
