    My apologies for asking the same question again, I did not read the premium solution before answering this one.

    Have you try to unplug it from the main power and let it unplug for about 5 minutes?

    How old is your DVD player?

    If it's less then a year old, still has manufacturers warranty. You can call the philips phone number found in your user's guide.

    You can also check this link here, there seems to be a software upgrade for your DVD player.

    Let me know if you require further assistance.

  • Jaime Hernandez Jul 21, 2008

    If your DVD player is only 5 months old, I would suggest to call philips and ask them for the nearest service center near you to have it repair or exchange it under warranty.

    The philips phone number can be found in your user's manual.

    Good Luck.

Hi dvd tray wont open it just says blocked can you help thanks.

There is either something inside blocking it or the belt has slipped off the gears or the motor has burned out. So remove the top of the unit (make sure you unplug it first!) and see if there is something inside blocking the tray from sliding smoothly. If you don't see anything make sure the belt that operates the sliding mechanism is on the wheels. Some players use a gear system and they come apart if the unit is banged or dropped. If you don't see anything keeping the mechanism from working then the motor/actuator might be blown. Put the unit on a flat surface, make sure there is nothing left inside the unit ie screws or tools, plug it in and see if the tray operates without the top on. If the motor is humming when you push the eject button slightly its still working. If not its burned out. If its burned out you can see about getting it fixed but its probably cheaper to replace the whole thing.

My dvd remote control,turn on and off the tv but not the dvd, so i need to know how to change back to just to operate the dvd, (samsung digital home cinema system) thanks,

Press the DVD button on the top of your remote to operate it with the dvd player. You remote is multi purpose on you can use it for controlling Samsung DVD and TV. When you press the DVD button it will change to the DVD remote state. When you press the TV button then it will change as remote for the TV. So if yo want to operate DVD with the remote just press the DVD button and if you want to control the TV then press the TV button.

My dvr had a timing issue and said to check the IB? or BI? so I went to the setup and seen the IB menue,.. it was on DR-1 and I clicked on DR-2 and now I can't do anything using the reomote. It only works...

Go to the menu button on your dvr look closely it wil tell you what button to use. Once there go back to setup and undo what you did. After this go into the menu where it says restore to factory settings and restore it to the factory settings. This will resolve your problem.

When I press the TV/VCR button on the remote, the picture on the TV becomes fuzzy and we see no signal from the DVD player. The first sign we were having trouble was that we couldn't set the time...

The TV/VCR button is usually not a function of a DVD player itself.

Normally this is a button on VCR remote controls that allow you to switch between whats playing in the VCR or whats coming in from the 'air/cable signal' from the cable or antenna wire on the back.

If this is a VCR/DVD player combo unit it would appear that the TV may be on the wrong channel for proper operation of the VCR functions (ch 3 or 4 are usually the selectable option on the back of the unit).

Make sure your DVD player is plugged into the correct input on the TV(video 1/svideo/or component ) and the TV is tuned to that same input. If the TV is on the correct input then the TV/VCR button shouldn't do anything at all which is normal operation when watching a DVD. If this doesn't clarify please reply with the model # of the unit. I would be happy to help more.

Try using the ff buttons and the reverse buttons on the player itself. That might have a scene selection option to it.

The company that made these players went of business in November. Wal Mart is exchanging them if anything goes wrong with them.

It should work with the remote by holding the forward or revese buttons while using. To increase speed press the ff or rev buttons again.
