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.

Unfortunately you are not able to record a VHS to DVD on this player.
It does not have the capability to record DVDs, in order to do that, you will need a DVDr
(DVD Recorder)

Hope you found this helpful.

Sounds like a hardware problem.

Make sure you're plugged into a good outlet, carefully check the power cable to check if a pet might have chewed though it, etc.
And if the AC cord is detachable (usually one end is special) and you have an alternate, try swapping them.

If it's still under warranty, call Philips technical or customer support for a possible replacement.

Not sure for that exact model, but it'll be in the set up menu under picture or AV settings.

Hi Ryana,

Check if the recorder is set to output in 'S-Video' or 'SuperVideo' mode, if your TV doesn't understand S-Video you'll get a grainy B&W picture. The VCR should be set to output in PAL for the UK and most of Europe.

Hope this helps

They are only downloadable via your TV set.

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
