Question about Philips Magnavox MPD845

1 Answer

I have a magnzvox MPDD845 8.5" TFT Monitor Portable DVD Player

The DVD takes a few seconds to load (which is fine). Sometimes before playing and sometimes during the play, the player starts making a loud 'ticking' sound and the movie stops. Help?

Thank you,

    My Magnavox MPD845 portable DVD player is not working at all. It looks like the motor is shot. (Error msg: no disc when there is a disc--the inserted disc is not spinning). How hard is it to replace a motor and where do I get one?



    Thanks!

The sound you are hearing is the lens attempting to focus. Since it seems to recover, this could be an alignment problem or just a connection problem. Without seeing the waveforms of the tracking circuit, I can not say for sure. If this is a new unit, return it for warranty exchange or repair.

    Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails, given the original symptom, I think that the optics are failing. The cost of the replacement optics will likely be more than a replacement unit.
