Question about Philips DVP642 DVD Player
If its still under warranty, send it back.
if it's not, try taking it back to the store and asking for a replacement. don't let the floor salesman tell you no. insist on speaking to the manager. my strategy is to: "be polite, appear slightly stupid, and dont take no for an answer" it works 80-90% of the time.
if you cant get anywhere (or dont want to try that route), then you have nothing to lose. open the case and try to clean the mechanism and lens
two screws on either side of the unit, and i think another 4 screws on the back side. this will allow you to pull the top cover off the unit.
clean the mechanism, and clean the lens. you can buy cleaner if you want, but i just use a soft cloth and some "no-streak" type window/glass cleaner (windex)
clean your disks as well. this DVD player seems to be sensitive to scuffs and dust more than some other players. you just have to be persistent.
or you could buy another DVD player. at $60, its really a pretty good deal anyhow.
