    exactly the same problem - with brand new dvds out of the case. dvds purchaced at target, the same store I bought the player. used to be able to play our old dvds - they also no longer play. the problem is not a region problem.

    is this a known problem with these players? weve had it less than a year and it no longer works

    help please, i have 2 children under the age of 8

    Thank you

    I have the same problem, it will play the discs I have recorded on it (like old movies I transferred from VHS to DVD), but it will not play any store bought discs...including ones that have worked in the past. The DVD player has been fine (I have had it a couple of months) until today.

I have a similar problem - the recorder will work when recording on new discs but will not recognize the discs after it has recorded onto them.
I have also found it prefers + discs even though it is supposed to play both + & - discs.

I bought DVD-RW discs but it comes up as Unknown Disc. Can you tell me what to do


If the disk in the drive shows it is a unknown disk , you must check the disk is good or bad , to check the disk , please follow the instruction,
put the dvd -rom in the drive , at the moment it shows unknown disk , select right click for properties of the disk , it shows the disk usage with a diagram , if the disk usage is on pink colour your disk is free and ready to use . otherwise the disk colour is blue in colour , it is due to manufacturing defect . it can be only cleared by replacing the disk with new one .

Unknown disk error on philips dvp 3020


I would guess that it's an incompatible disk format. If your burning software allows you to pick different types check the Philips manual for a compatible format

Disks will not play


This is due to faulty DVD lens/head. Try cleaning it with DVD/CD hed cleaning CDs.If still the problem persists, contact near by service center for replacing the faulty Lens.

Unknown disc error and whirring sound!


Do you leave the unit on all day and night on standby?

If this unit gets to hot you can experience this problem I suggest that you turn the power OFF totally until the unit cools down and try again. Normally 15 mins is enough.

I had the same problem "unknown disk, please check disk". Tried the reset method described in the owner's manual (power off, unplug and wait 5 seconds). This did not work.

I then put the unit into the setup mode (press set-up on the remote.) I selected "Factory Settings" under the general category and then chose "Set". These reset the unit and it seems to be working okay now. Hope this helps.

Wont play saying unknown disk


If the region setting is correct and won't even read a cleaning disc, there's not much you can do. Either the DVD drive or the Main board (aka MPEG board) is faulty and will have to get it repaired. I'm not sure about UK, but in Australia, Bush manufacturing warranty period for DVD players is 12 months.
