Usually "ROOT" is an indication that the player has read the DVD.

ROOT means that the DVD is in the main menu screen.

Sounds like the DVD player is ok, but you may have a loose connection somewhere.

Check all of your AV connections between the TV and DVD.

Also make sure that the TV is set to the same AV channel as the connection you are using.
E.G. if you have connected the DVD to the AV 1 socket of the TV, make sure that the TV is set to channel AV 1.

The cd is working fine. however there is no display on tv.


Ensure that your connections are securely in place; a loose cable can cause signal loss and yet may not be totally obvious from a qick inspection.

HTH.

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.

Incorrect region code


This is how to make Philips DVD 622 region free so that it can play VCDs from all regions.

*Open CD tray by holding down "stop" button on the remote.
*Enter 2812
*Hold down "OK" button on the remote till 9 appears in the TV screen
*Turn off power of your DVD player
*Turn your DVD player on and it is region free now

No CD sound on Philips DVD/VCR player


I havent seen this model But in the past I have heard this problem arise. It turned out that there was a mute button for the cd only on the remote and there was no indicator to show it. check for a cd mute or go into the cd play menu and check around in there.
