The problem is that the tray is moved by a belt, this belt is the problem, it's located under the tray, replace the belt and your problem is solved.

Switch off the unit, remove the cord. Ope the top cover, you will see the loading assembly, just beneath the assembly tou can find a threaded shaft on which OPU is mounted, try to turn the shaft, OPU will start sliding and it will open a small window by which you can see one black belt, just skid this belt so that it turn a while, tray will start coming gently, now hole the tray from outside and gently pull it out, DO NOT apply any lubricant, You shoul dchange the belt now.

I have a philips hdrw720 dvd recorder. i cant play recordings anymore and i get a letter "C" on the video screen.. anyone know how to fix this? thanks


Hi,
There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)
2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)
3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.
You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.
Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.
Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.
I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG DVD roms and DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.
Let me know how it goes.

Can I record DVDs on my DVDplayer??


No. You have a player and not a recorder/player. If you have a computer with a DVD slot that most likely is a recorder..

Hi,

Keep pushing the "STOP" button on the Remote-controller will open the tray. This works mostly on all Philips DVD's. I tried on my recorder, it works.

Unknown disk type


Press 'Disc Menu' and wait for 'no disc' to appear on the screen. Eject the tray by pressing the 'open / close' button on front of the recorder. Enter the following numbers very slowly on the remote control ' 0086000 ' Press ' OK ' button on your remote control. Close the tray by pressing ' open / close ' button on the front of the recorder. You can check this has worked by pressing ' 0009 OK ' on your remote after the tray has closed. A display will pop up on screen showing the Region as 0. This means you should be able to play discs from all Regions. If this doesn't work the first time! try again! Hope this helps!!

Code for multi region free


I figured out the code, it's printed incorrectly many places.

1 - Turn on DVD Player
2 - Press Open/Close button - open tray
3 - Press "8888"
4 - Put a DVD in the tray (from outside your region)
5 - Press Open/Close button - close tray
6 - Voila! It plays!

Works on mine!

Tray is not opening


To open the tray this is not a perfect fix, but it will allow to use it. After the unit is powered on: 1)Hit the "Open/Close" button 2)Wait a while (you will get the timing down with practice) 3)Tap gently, yet briskly with fingertips at area in the attached pic, that the red arrow points to I think the problem is that the tray becomes unbalanced somehow. Because when a DVD is in, the drive opens fine, only when there is no disc do you have to tap on the unit.

Blocked dvd tray


The disk inside is most likely jammed. It would be best to take it to a repairman, or you can try to remove it your self.
