Question about Philips BDP5012 Blu-Ray Player

1 Answer

I am already out of the warrently period for this player but it has started rebooting itself during play. About every 30-45 minutes it will pause and then reboot. It only happens when I am watching Netflix however it is not the internet issue. It's the WHOLE unit itself...not just the internet connection. Any ideas?

Why dose my games pause during play

Does it say that it is paused? if so you might be stroking the key, or have a faulty program, or another player has a hack to pause you.

If it just stops and doesn't say pause you might have a problem with your PC, or the game it's self, or even your internet connection.

If it reboots after freezing you might have an overheating problem.

My dolphin inexplicably shuts off for no apparent reason. It's been happening since I charged it last - about 4 uses ago. It'll be playing for 5 to 10 minutes, even 15, then just shuts down. ...

Have you checked the settings? There's one in there for auto-shutoff. I had this happen and it turned out I had accidentally changed this setting.

How to turn off nwz-a826 becuse its not turn off jut standby

To turn the portable player on, press the Play/Pause button until the screen appears. To turn the portable player off, press and hold the Play/Pause button until POWER OFF appears.

To save the battery consumption, the player will do the following:
After turning on the power, if there is no operation or playback performed for about 1 minute, the power of the player turns off.
If there is no operation for a certain period of time while in stop mode, the display turns off automatically and the player enters standby status. If there is no operation for the next 30 minutes, the power of the player turns off.

Dell DJ 30 gig is stuck on recovery mode. Already tried pin hole reset. I don't mind wiping all the music of I just want it to work again

Assuming you simply pushed the reset, you will get only a reboot back to whatever problem you already had. If you hold the play/pause button while briefly pushing the reset, it should boot to the recovery screen. Then try selecting cleanup, then reboot after it finishes.
If its now ok, then great. If not, then do the hold play and reset again, this time selecting format. This WILL wipe all your songs, but may just let it work again afterwards. Worth a try....
