Turn off and disconnect power from unit. Check laser shuttle worm
gear, look for dirt or hair (as I found). Remove with tweezers
carefully. Check lubrication of worm gear shaft. If gone or
worn, use white lithium grease to lube (very little). Play music
CD 2 - 3 x. Than DVD. Worked for me.

is the dvd player a home theatre system?if yes,does the tv play sound via the dvd home theatre speakers when it is on?if yes then maybe you should double-check your audio port connections between the two for correct configurations
Check current region code Open the Philips HOME Screen Type on your remote: 8520 This will display all of the current settings for your player. Example: Region_Code: DVD(2) BD(B)Change region code Turn on player with no disk inserted Press "Open/Close" on the remote control until the tray is open Press 8689310 - 0 means all region Press 8689311 - 1 means region 1, Press 8689312 - 2 means region 2, Press 8689313 - 3 means region 3, Press 8689314 - 4 means region 4, Press 8689315 - 5 means region 5, Press 8689316 - 6 means region 6. Now the front Buttons might not work! Go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions
Unless it is specified as being able to play Blu-Ray discs, it cannot do so, and there are no 'hacks' to enable this function as the HT 554 is a DVD player/home theatre system. You would require a Blu-Ray player to play both types of disc.
Open the Philips HOME SCreen,...
Type on your remote: 13893108520
This will display all of the current settings for your player.
Region_Code: DVD(2) BD(B)
This will not change any settings, but will report your current settings. So it's a reporting function only.
To change your DVD region settings try the following:
Turn on player with no disk inserted
Press "Open/Close" on the remote control
Press 259 on the remote control
After enter the code 13893108520 again on the HOME Screen and the player will show region "0"
Now the buttons on the front of the player do not work anymore....
You will need to go to SETUP and click on RESET FACTORY SETTINGS....
Wait until the player restarts and now you can play all DVD regions..... ;-)
If the player is doing that for all DVDs but playing CDs properly, the player has gone bad due to either the laser and lens being out of whack or the DVD drive just doesn't recognise DVDs anymore and needs repaired or replaced.
