since you have plugged out the DVD for 3hrs the conclusion is that you will need to take it to a repairman the problem with your DVD is that it got a surge due to the power failure.that sound you are getting is from the little transformer in the power supply,the current stops at the primary windings and is not crossing over the the secondary winding to complete the cycle.good luck i was the one who told you to plug it out for 3hrs

sounds like a belt is slipping or broke, if it's slipping just keep on trying to eject it, if it's broke you will have to open it and manually push the cdrom draw out

I found a work around for the problem where I boot up from DVD then don't power it off. Th e following is what I did to accomplish this:
1) I created a DVD with the latest firmware for the DVDR3455 put on it.
2) I plug the unit in, then while powering on the player I hold in the DVD open/close button. You will eventually get the text "LOAD" on the front display.
3) I then manually open the DVD door (see "dvd won't eject" on fixya web site) and put in my DVD with the firmware on it and close the door.
4) When the DVD door closes the player will read the firmware from the DVD. You will see the text "COPY" and "BOOT" displayed on the front, then it will go back to "PHILLIPS".
5) If you have your TV still connected to the player you will see the 3 free trial of YES dvd displayed on the screen. Press OK and you everything should be working.
Then you just have to pray that you don't loose power or you will have to go through all of this again.
This is pain but at least I can still use the player and get more use out of it.

SOURCE: dvdr3455/37 stopped working
I had the same problem - and here is how I fixed it.
When it was booting/re-booting I ejected the disk (I needed it out anyway since I assumed the unit was dead.) After ejecting the disk it display "load" on the unit. I read in another message board that this means the unit is looking for the firmware disk. I went to http://www.usasupport.philips.com/productDocuments.html?ProductCode=DVDR3455H/37&subCat=DVD_HARDDISK_RECORDERS_SU_US_CONSUMER
I followed the instructions to make the "upgrade CD" and inserted into my DVR. My unit then powered up normally. I went ahead and upgraded the software and it did happen again (the re-boot cycle) until I entered the date/time.
