SOURCE: philips dvd player not working

Im sorry to tell ya that you did all the things I would have suggested, so it sounds like a system control problem or a power supply problem, and if its a good machine then maybe its worth you having a service person look at it?? Most dvd units are not worth it these days, unless there combos or recorders.. Sorry couldnt be of more help.

SOURCE: DVD stuck inside, player won't turn on, standby light does NOT flash

test the capacitor with a meter to make sure it has the value stated on it.
the work on this unit is quickly exceeding its present value, most likely.
consider upgrading to a higher resolution unit if the fix is more expensive in parts and time than a new unit costs.
good luck

SOURCE: Philips HDRW720 won't turn on

I think Philips must have a timer on this unit to fail, I am also having the same problem and I think the hard drive failed. I currently have installed a new drive and held the play and open close buttons down when the power comes up. It will ask for a cd to be installed when initializing the drive. I am currently searching for that cd and will let you know if any luck with the install.

SOURCE: Philips HDRW720/17 won't turn on

I have a DVDR725H, which is the same as a HDRW720 but has a 160GB hard disk.

This error code (FAIL 0900 05) is displayed when the DVD drive has been completely removed/disconnected or is not responding.

Note that the DVD drive (VAD8041) is apparently known to have its DVD motor driver chip (SA56202TW) getting destroyed due to overheating. There is a repair kit available (about 10-15 EUR) that comes with a zener diode and two capacitors (order number 996500029182).

Note that it might be easier to get some used philips DVD+HD product that has the same DVD drive, e.g. the DVDR610 or DVDR615 and use that as a replacement.

SOURCE: refurbished philips dvp642/37 playing and stops playing

the problem is not the power supply capacitor. it will eventually fail, and need to be replaced, but when it does you'll know it because you wont be able to use the DVD at all. it wont turn on, and the standby light will just flicker.

the problem is that your mechanism/lens is probably dirty or dusty or out of alignment.

this device is kind of sensitive moreso than other players. by "sensitive" i mean "cheap"

try cleaning it with soft, lint-free cloth, and windex.

clean your disks as well.

if that doesnt work, you may just need to buy a new DVD.

at $60 its a good deal, even if some of them do crap out too soon. you can spend more $ on a better quality player if this fact bothers you.

42" plasma worked fine this


Hi
A common problem for these is bad capacitors in the power supply, Remove the back from your Tv and look at the power supply on the left hand side.

You will see roughly around 9 x capacitors that are bulged / domed shaped on top usually these are valued at 3300uf 10V any that have bulged or leaked a brown like substance should be changed.
This will cure the problem as they overheat being sat next to a heatsink that gets very hot!
Try and change them for the same 3300uf but a higher voltage.
Hope this helps

I had the same problem and I realized that it is a common problem on Philips DVP 630/642/37 series DVD players..As Power problem..A blinking red power button urges you that there is a malfunctioning capacitor in the circuit board.

This is actually surprisingly easy to fix. but it needs soldering iron before.any attempt. Here are the steps .The decision to try this is up to your own discretion and may be a last ditch effort before throwing the player away.
Unplug and take the metal cover out (plenty screws on side and on the back): Check the board to see if capacitor numbered as "C316 "is bulging-/leaking. If so, get a 1000u capacitor >=16V and replace it..
If you cant do it find a handy man nearby you and ask him to do it..It takes just 10 minutes but you must obtain the capacitor from Radio Shack (2.00 USD) before you begin..
Take care and do not forget to rate me too..Thanks

No pwr


the flashing red light is caused by a burst or bulging capacitor on the power supply side of the dvp642's mainboard.
to fix it simply dis-assemble the unit removing the mainboard totally from the casing. search for the bad capacitor on the main board. once you have found it simply turn the board over and using a soldering iron and some desolder twine desolder the capacitor from the board being careful not to burn the circuit board or lift any traces.once you have removed the old capacitor take it and purchase a replacement from radioshack or equivalent store. make sure the replacement has the exact same voltage rating and AT LEAST THE SAME AMPERAGE higher is ok lower will not work.but the voltage must be exactly the same. resolder the new capacitor to the mainboard and reassemble and viola your up and running again
