Question about Philips DVP3050V/37

1 Answer

CD disk tray is stuck in closed position. Manual button release has no effect. Connected to a Comcast (Motorola) DVR cable box. Have pressed Comcast remote to pass from TV to Phillip DVD. Turned on Phillips , set remote on DVD, and pressed "open/close" disk tray. Has opened for almost two years. But today, it will not open to accept a disk. Is my problem mechanical or electronic? What can I do to play sdisks?.

    Thanks, Ekse.
    I had unplugged the player for over an hour when I posted my problem. So, at your suggestion I connected the power cable, turned on the machine, and opened the disk tray by pushing the open/close button. Shazam, it works -- as it did for years.
    Will keep your instructions on solving a mechanical problem, should that ever arise.

Most likely mechanical.

There are many possible reasons for why the drive won't open.

1. the drive mechanism is stuck.
2. the motor that moves the tray is broken
3. the flat cable that transfers movement from the motor to the other gears is out of place

I'll stop there, If you are outside of warranty, you may take apart the dvd player, if you are in warranty, then just try unplugging the dvd player for 5 minutes and then try again.

If your outside of warranty and your prepared to take it apart, unplug all the cables and unscrew the screws to get the top off.

Inspect the drive, and try to help it eject by rotating the gears in the drive, they might be a bit difficult to move as they may be hidden under the tray, find a way.

Once you get the tray to release the problem might be solved, inspect the gears and the rubber transfer cable from the top of the motor to the other gears that it in place and moves freely.

Put the power back on, don't touch anything inside the player while its plugged in. Now, see if the ejecting and inserting of a disc works properly. If it does, unplug and reassemble the unit, the problem is solved.

You will not be able to get closed captioning by pressing the cc button on your television remote control. You must turn off the motorola cable box. Yes I did say turn off the motorola cable box. You should be standing in front of the cable box when you turn it off because as soon as it is turned off you must press the menu button on the cable box (not on the remote but on the cable box) right away. If you press menu soon enough after turning it off you will get a hidden menu. You will be able to scroll down to Closed Captioning and choose enable with the left or right arrow. Then just turn the cable box back on and you should have captions.

Phillips HTS3566D Home Theater/Comcast DVR 3 Device remote


I have the same problem. The only time that I can get it to work is whenever I turn on the cable box the home theater system turns on too. When I use the DVR it will turn it on too and want to play the CD/DVD. I have a Comcast Motorola DCH3416 DVR box.

Closed caption problem


I had the same issue... here's what I did.  If power off your cable box, then press the menu button, there's a selection to enable or disable Closed Captioning.  This works for both HD series Motorola boxes Comcast offers, at least in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.  Hope this helps!

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"


I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.

Remote control


I was able to get my Motorola DVR Cable Box to work with my Universal Remote using the following instructions:

The Instruction Manual for Manual Code Search seems incorrect. (Page 5).

A) Manually turn on the device to be controlled. (O.K.)
B) Press and hold the code search button until the red indicator stays on, then release the code search button. (O.K.)
C) Press and quickly release the desired mode button (TV, VCR). The red indicator blinks off once. (O.K.)
D) Face the remote control directly to the device you want to control. (O.K.)
E.) Press the ON/OFF Button (this should read CHANNEL UP button) repeatedly until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red button blinks off with each button press.
F) Press and release enter to install the code. (O.K.)

-Note, the remote is able to change the channel, however, it does not control the volume.

Universal remote code needed for motorola cable box (for comcast)


Hello, follow this link to download the manual and the codes for your remotes:
http://www.ofausa.com/remote.php?type=URC8800
just right click and save as on the download links.

if this does not work you can try the search method,
you do this by either holding down the device button eg: TV or if you have one the "magic" button for three seconds, a light should then flash twice to say you have done this correctly.
then press the keys 991 then the power button.
you must now press the channel up key (ch+) possibly upto 150 times while the remote cycles through every code.
Once your tv or device switches off stop pressing the ch+ key and press the power button to make sure it switches back on,
(if you press ch+ too many times you can go back by pressing ch-)
When complete press the magic or device key again to save the settings (light should flash twice to confirm)

Many thanks
Mark
