Question about Philips Magnavox DVD/VCR Dual Player

DVD Player When I insert a DVD it scans and makes a clicking noise and never plays the movie. I have never have problems before. The VCR works just fine. What could be the problem? Could it have gotten fried from lightning?

    Thank you for helping me. I tried your methods and it didn't work so now I will try to have it replaced. I have had it over a year so I don't know if they will replace it but I will try. Thanks again!

1) Reset the DVD player by unplugging it from the wall outlet for 20-30 seconds. Hold in the power button and replug the dvd/vcr while continuing to hold the power button for an additional 20 seconds.
2) If that fails, run a DVD cleaner (if possible)
3) If the above two methods fail, call Philips to get unit replaced.

Lightning could easily have caused such a problem. DVD players have a pretty low life expectancy nowadays, even from reputable manufacturers like Philips and RCA.

Emerson VCR/ DVD Player Model # EWD2203 makes clicking noises when I watch dvds


OK, first go through these steps:
(if they doesn't work, then you have to say good bye to the combo.

1.) check if your DVDs aren't scratched (very common)
2.) check if your DVDs aren't dirty (eg. somebody held it in his hands after he ate a juicy marmelade bread)
3.) Try to clean the head (lens) of your DVD player with a cleaning DVD (at least 5 times).

Why does my Emerson VCR/ DVD Player Model # EWD2203 make clicking noises?


The laser lens is dirty. It is trying to read read read and it can't.

With the tray open, try cleaning the little lens thingie you see inside, at the bottom, with a moist cotton swab.

That otta fixya!

No matter what DVD we put in, the player stays on "READ"


either the disc you inserted hasn't got a menu. the only thing DVD's do this is because there is no Menu provided in the DVD DISC. In the other case, where it remains "read" the disc might not be clean, scratched, dusty or simply incompatible with your DVD Player. Always clean discs before and after playing them in your DVD Player. Hope this helps, good luck!

Does not playing DivX movies


Its not supposed to play Dix AVI movie files.
For a DVD player to play anything other than a DVD movie the manufacturer must pay royalties to who ever owns the patent, for example they would have to pay Philips say $1 for every DVD player made that plays VCD's, that may not sound a lot but, make 100,000 dvd players and they would have to pay Philips $100,000.
The technology has to be put into the device for it to work.
Hope that helps.

My DVD player wont read a disc


There are several things you can do to try and solve your problem: Make sure that the DVDs you try to play are encoded for the right region. Make sure that the transportation lock (usually a plastic screw on the bottom of the unit), is not engaged. Turn off player with disc inserted, unplug temporarily from wall outlet, plug back in and turn back on.
