Please try to put in an ordinary audio CD track and see if this is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility of the head being faulty is high.
Now certain cleaner disks are not read and so will not be tracked. but the best is for cleaning manually the laser head eye with a cotton bud very softly and without any pressing of the lens eye.
If there is still no result then watch the DVD if it spins or tries to spin. If the head unit moves up or down to focus or in and out of the drive, if so the board seems to have issues and the possibility of the optical head being good.
Finally try to see if the set records on a DVD with a given signal source. If not the fault is confirmed that the main PCB, processing section is faulty.

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

Hi I haev a problem with A Philips DVDR3380/05


Use Phillips own media this unit was designed with DVD+R/RW in mind, it will work with DVD-R/RW discs but Philips invented the + format.

If you are using the DVDR 3380 is recorded video to then upload to your PC the best program is TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress it has its own function to scan source media from a DVDR, if you use +R or + RW media you don't even have to finalise it. This is only required if you want to play a DVD-R on another standalone

I have never had any problems with SONY and PHILLIPS media, generally speaking cheap unbranded media will have a higher failure rate , but you do get what you pay for when optical media is concerned.

DVDs not reading


have you tried cleaning the lens? do not use cotton buds or touch the lens , use a dvd lens cleaning cd , as there may be dirt on your lens or the discs are dirty, if this does not work it is possible that you require to have the lazer replaced. good luck

I have a dvdr3380 lately when i put in disc it says disc unrecord


Test the created DVD with TMPGEnc v4.0 Xpress here is the free trial link It has a read source function that will fail if the DVDR has not been authored correctly.

If this works and scans in the full DVDR then I suggested that you buy a branded DVD+R like Philips who created the format, if this still fails I think you DVDR 3380 will need a service.
