Question about Philips DVP3140

1 Answer

My DVD player is not working properly

When I insert a CD/DVD it loads the disk but after 2 min is paused automatically and play itself after a long pause. It happens after 2-3 inutes.

Please advise

I've a philips DVD player it also acts up the same way. It will automatically pause while playing movies/mp3 and then resume again sometimes soon other times after a long time.

Already tried using laser headcleaning CDs
Tried cleaning the head drive mechanism after opening the device
Seems to be an issue with the Optical Reader or one of the condensors which starts acting up once heated

It sounds like the player is defective, try to get a RMA ,or it or bring it back to where you got it from.

DVD player automatically stops and turns itself off, how do I prevent this?


Warning: Laser inside! If you want to open it up and troubleshoot, make sure you don't point toward your eyes.
Check the nylon laser carriage to see if it slides laser from center to outside line. If it sticks, it's probably shutting down from not properly reading a disk.

Hi Can you tell me how to upgrade the firmware on my bd370 without connecting it to the internet. I have down loaded updates from lge.co.uk onto a CD-R but when i put it into the player, it should goto...


Hi there

If you download the updates onto a CD-r and insert it into your player it should automatically update itself but if it doesnt then you should try downloading the updates on a DVD-R disk

This should work

When i put a dvd in the player makes noise and screen says no disk or unable to read


Sounds like the mounting spindle is out of alignment, meaning the disks you load into the player are not spinning in a balanced, stable position. Without this being the case the laser pickup will not be able to read the disk and the unbalanced disk will cause a noisy hum and you may even be able to feel vibration in the player itself to confirm this. Sometimes the noise and vibration is a disks fault but if it occurs on any disk you insert (and can confirm the same disks work ok with no noise in other DVD players) it will be the players mounting mechanisim that is not playing the game properly I suspect.

Dvd player wont load disc


try cleaning the lens first.then load a disk.try a different disc like VCD, CD etc.if only the DVD's are not read, the lens and the mainboard itself is faulty.but, if after cleaning it, it goes ok ,then its just dirty.

Unlock LG DVD


The following hack worked for my player. It works for most LG and Aiwa players too. To hack the player try this:
  • Power on player with no disc inserted and wait for "No Disc" message on screen
  • (using the remote) Press PAUSE
  • Press the numbers 314159 in order. (player should now show "COdE - -" the same as below)
  • Press the number of the region you desire ( 0 = any region, 1 = US&Canada etc.)
  • Press PAUSE
  • Power off the player for a few seconds..power back up and insert your DVD disc

No disk


Try playing Different DVDs, Second Make sure which Region Disk your playing is it Region 1 or Region 2, If your DVD player is Manufactured in USA it plays only Region 1, If its manufactured in UK it plays only Region 2, If still you face same problem Use Lens Cleaner, If still you face same problem do Reset.
To Reset Dvd player, Remove DVD from Dvd Player, Unplug Power chord from Walloulet for 15minutes so player goes to Defult Factor Settings, Then plug back again Power chord. Turn on Dvd player insert DVD, It should Play or else Claim Warranty.
