SOURCE: Philips HTS 6500 not reading my DVD's

I bought this item in Nov. of '07 and it worked great...for about 3 months then the dreaded no disc message appeared and has ruined my life. Howvever after not using this DVD player for a month or so i had decided to tinker with it to try and get it to work and it appears i have found a solution that is working for me so far. After being fed up with Philips and trying their "solutions" because as we all know the U.S. sells DVD's with the wrong region code (ha funny Philips people) i began trying to make this stupid peice of garbage work in any way. What i came up with is this: 1.) insert your DVD and wait to see what happens. When you get the no disc readings this is what you do. 2) Eject the dvd but do not touch it 3). While the dvd is sitting in the slot press and hold down the play button on the remote control and continue to hold it down 4) it may take awhile but give it a chance, and hopefully the DVD will "resume play" and start anew. If holding the play button down does nothing then try holding it and releasing it in intervals until something happens. If nothing ever happens then i guess you SOL. I know this is not an desired fix to the problem but so far it has worked for me. I noticed this because the stupid thing will would read a cd and this got me thinking. This way is kind of a jump start to get the dvd going....hope this helps someone

SOURCE: dvd reads 'load' but nothing happens

Hi,
This issue will occur only when there is a tray with the motor lens problem so you need replace the entire tray with the motor lens set to resolve your issue.

Error recording


It is the disc type that your using or the lens of the disc. Although this unit can use x16, dont. Use x8 and make sure it just says x8. I can assure you it will work hands down. I have this unit. It runs strong since jan 06

Says close when i try to play my dvd.


My MCD288 developed the very same issue just 2 months after buying it. I kept thinking than my little niece had to do something with that, and only today, after 2 years decided to open it up and check. Well the problem is the GREY (not the black one) microswitch that is soldered on a little PCB atteched to the CD/DVD mechanism. You can check it on board with a multymeter. It stops working. I unsoldered it, opened it up, cleaned it and resoldered it. It now accepts CDs and DVDs and does not spit them out after a while. If only I could find a solution for the buzzing sound. It must be defective design. Maybe change C560 and C561 on main amp PCB with smaller capacity ones? Or maybe put away the toroidal transformer?

This is the LAST item I'll ever buy from Phillips. Period. They put an unfinished project on sale... Shame on them..

Mcd288 problem


Try not to use any rental dvd discs or dvd burner discs. Go get a brand new dvd movie(again,do not burn a DVD disc and play in this unit.) and put it in see if it works? Should have at least 2-3 movies for testing.
If you have tried to put in some BRAND NEW DVD movies and still doesn't work,you have a problem with the unit.

DVDs & CDs will not play


If you are playing STANDARD CD or regular DVD that you have purchase and you are having this problem,your dvd player is malfunction;however,if you are playing DVD burner disc or a different dvd region disc(we are region 1 in U.S.) that is no going to work.Same thing for your CD burner disc,it might not work.
If you are using a rental dvd disc,check and see if there is scratches?If so,try to get one without that many scratches!
