Question about Philips MCD515 Micro DVD Shelf System, 50 watts, Logic Tape Deck Shelf System

Open Question

I have two Philips MCD515 Micro DVD shelf Systems, 50 watts, that were bought about three years ago. Both have recently stopped playing CD's. I heard one stop abruptly, while a CD was playing. I suspect a drive band may have failed. I have tried to remove the outer panels to check for this, but, after removing most of the screws, I still cannot get the box open. Is drive band failure normal with this model ? Can a replacement band be obtained and fitted easily ?

SOURCE: My DVD drive does not open

I suggest you may have accidently put another disk in your DVD drive on top of the one used previously without removing it first: I know, I did just that, and the teeth may now be sheared on the drive wheels which means it will probably need replacing with a new one.
To open manually, look for the tiny hole beside the Open/close button just under the drawer and insert a long slim steel probe which will activate a switch to open the drawer. (Have a look among your kitchen utensils, there might be something there).
Hope it works, but you may find you need a new DVD/RW unit, so have a look around in the New Year Sales and use the opportunity to buy the best you can find at a bargain price.

SOURCE: bought a 50 philips (50pfp5332d/37).

Take the tv off the stand and lean it against soemthing, take the stand to a hardware shop and find some bolts that match the threads inside the stand. I think that would be your best bet. Just dont lay the tv down, if you have ot put it in the box thats ok, I just dont want it to get broken while we hunt down some screws.

SOURCE: Want to unlock Philips DVD player (DVP320)

Did you follow these instructions exactly? If you pressed 9990, as you mentioned, it will not work. You need to press 99990. Do you see region "0" on the display?

start the player without any DVD in it.
open the lid.
while the lid is open press 9,9,9,9,0
you should see region 0 displayed.
close the lid.

Your DVD player is now region free.

note:
replace 0 with 1 to 6 at to set the wanted region number if needed.

I have a Philips model #FWM575/37 Cd/Tape/Radio combination player. It is only 3 years old and the CD portion is not working. CD starts playing, then stops and can't get any CD to work.


You may just get away with cleaning the lens of the CD player to restore it to normal, use one of the brand name makes of CD Lens Cleaners.

My recently made music CD will NOT play in our Philips FW-R7. It will play on all our computers and DVD players. The message is "Wrong Disc." Other music CD we've made do play fine in the FW-R7.


This is common with burned cd's they have trouble playing in different sets. Do prerecorder cd's play fine in your philips? If those are having trouble also you could improve it's playability possibly with a cleaning of the opu. Optical pick up.

Cd player says error


I had the same thing happen to mine, only after six years, After taking the top off, and looking at the inside, I realized it was the belt that had stretched out. I am still trying to find a place that sells replacement belts. I was able to get it to work by taking the belt out, cleaning it with a tissue and some rubbing alcohol, and putting it back in. you may want to look into the belt.

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!
