SOURCE: philips DVP642 DVD Player "No disc" problem

if its still under warranty, do that.

if it's not, try taking it back to the store and asking for a replacement. don't let the floor salesman tell you no. insist on speaking to the manager. my strategy is to: "be polite, appear slightly stupid, and dont take no for an answer" it works 80-90% of the time.

if you cant get anywhere (or dont want to try that route), then you have nothing to lose. open the case and try to clean the mechanism and lens

two screws on either side of the unit, and i think another 4 screws on the back side. this will allow you to pull the top cover off the unit.

clean the mechanism, and clean the lens. you can buy cleaner if you want, but i just use a soft cloth and some "no-streak" type window/glass cleaner (windex)

clean your disks as well. this DVD player seems to be sensitive to scuffs and dust more than some other players. you just have to be persistent.

or you could buy another DVD player. at $60, its really a pretty good deal anyhow.

good luck

SOURCE: DVP642/ 37 DVD player says "NO DISK" with any disk.

Usually if there is a NO DISC error, and the lens is verified clean, there is either dust in the laser assembly (use a can of compressed air to clean it out) or a loose laser assembly cable. Also check to make sure the lens can bob (wiggle around), and that it can slide back and forth.

The emergency eject is underneath, its a small slot. Insert a toothpick at one end and slide to the other end to open the tray.

SOURCE: my philips dvp642 dvd player has a blinking red

To add to the previous solution (which I followed myself), specifically steps 3 and 5...

The C316 may not be leaking brown fluid nor the bulging at the top might not be noticeable as was the case with mine. It might have you second guessing. Nevertheless, my unit had the same symptoms of the problem as described above and I went on with the "operation." (Don't mistaken the rubbery cream colored stuff at RB301 for brown leakage. I believe its there to protect/insulate.)

The exact capacitor I used from Radio Shack - 1000uF 35v, Part # 272-1032 It's actually quite a bit bigger than the original but fits and works fine. A picture of this newly installed capacitor is here (it's the baby blue one).

My Philips dvd player model DVP642/37 is not working. The stand by/ on button flashes the red light on and off slowly and non of the other buttons respond on the machine or the remote for the dvd player...


Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

I have a Philips DVP642 DVD player. It has worked


First try a soft reset... unplug for 20 minutes.
Otherwise - the laser is dirty or misaligned.
A Repair shop can clean and align for about $50.
It takes specialized equipment and templates to align the laser - not something you can do on your own.

Lens cleaner discs don't work.

Philips DVP642 No Disc


clean the disks as well as possible with cleaner and soft cloth. the problem is not the disks, but the fact that the DVD reader has become really sensitive.

if that wont help, open up the case (screws on sides and back), and clean the DVD mechanism and lens as best as possible.

you still might be SOL, but its worth a try since its out of warranty, and a replacement player is $60.
