I work at a service center in the U.S. and I have a lot of trouble getting any Phillips parts. My service center has given up on Phillips, we have had too many problems with them. Sorry to give you this bad news. You might want to look on ebay for one with a disc loading problem or some other problem not related to the cd player. Sometimes you can find them cheap. The laser would cost you in the range of $50 to $75 US if you can find one.

Good luck,

Dave

Philips Blu Ray Model HTS3541/F7 Unknown Disc error


Check with an other known good disc. If it shows the same for that disc too, its laser pickup unit has the fault, and should be replaced. Contact any experienced service technician. Replacing laser pickup assembly to blu-ray players are a very very skilled work. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Need a remote for a PHILIPS Mini HiFi System


Try E bay as the remote is considered an accessory and are one of the first product to run out of supply. There is always the possibility that a person will sell one from either a shipping damaged unit or one that could not be repaired but the remote still works.

Hi,can i replace dvd reader in philips DVP620VR combo?Producing clicking sound inside also.cleaning disc made no difference,7 years old.Am in New Zealand. Regards Andy


The DVD Drive wasn't available as a complete replacement part so you had to purchase the Laser Unit as an individual part and replace it. I think that the Laser Unit is now discontinued but if you could find a replacement it normally isn't cost effective on a system of this age.

I have a philip 3962 it can not read DVD but it can read regular audio can you tell me what happend


hi,
i have got the same complaint some days ago. your players spindle motor is faulty.
its winding have some problem. spindle motor is that one on which the dvd spins. when u insert the dvd it is not rotating at the required rpm. thats why it is not reading. the problem will not be with video cds and audio cds . because it doesn't required a high rpm. replace the spindle motor. it will not cost a lot. its sure that ur problem will be solved.
if then also the problem remains,
your player's laser pick up unit have some problem with its DVD laser. there are two types of laser in dvd players. one for reading and playing audio cds, mp3 and video cds and the other for reading and playing dvds. in your player dvd laser have problem. don't think that these are two separate unit. the lasers are mounded in the same unit. if any of the laser get damaged you have to replace the whole unit.
if u need any more assistance feel free to contact me through fixya.

Disk not ejekt - Philips DVD 5990


Disc Tray Won't Open on Philips DVD Player Model DVP5990/37: The first thing to try is unplugging and turning the unit upside down and finding the slot near the tray port location. Inside the slot you'll see a white plastic piece with a small tab. Use a small knife or ice pick, etc. to slide the tab toward the far side of the unit. This unlocks the tray and should pop it open about 1/4". Place the unit back right side up and plug back in. Hit the open button and it should either close or open depending on it's current cycle, but it should work unless the drive belt is snapped, for which you'll need to remove the outer cover and fix or replace. I'm told there are no factory replacement belts available yet for these machines, however I've used large O-ring seals in place of belts to fix other models of machines. As far as Philips support for this unit, it stinks. Their live and web help features are now useless because all of these models are now "out of warranty" and they remove detailed support postings from their website and from live help stations as soon as they are out of warranty - just when you need such help. I would not recommend any Philips product, as this is my second Philips unit I've purchased new which had serious problems just after a few uses.

Laser Pickup/Transport


Odds are it'll be a philips or a sony laser. I can't find anything via google. If you can identify it a bit further by opening the unit and noting the markings on the laser, you should be able to source a replacement on ebay for between £5 - £25. Try and get a genuine laser unit rather than a cheap chinese knockoff.
