Sony DVP-NC600 Multi Disk DVD Player No Power

A sequence of event has made my dvd player completely dead. First my 3 year old inserted multiple dvds causing the carousal to get stuck. It would not rotate. I hold the unit down and gave a little shake and dvds started to fall, but the unit would still not close. The unit had power till now. It was displaying C 31 00 message, and it meant "disk is not inserted properly", that was true as it carousal was not going in. I shaked the unit a little and I heard a screw or something rattling, after that I lost the power in the unit. I opened the case and found that one lever (with spring attached) was slightly mislocated, I fixed that and I was able to push the carousal in, but still no power. I don't have a voltmeter, but I checked power to the click switch using regular line tester, it has power till there. What else can I do to revive this? Thank you very much

    The fuse looks good, the wire inside is intact. I am afraid that the repair may cost as much as the new one. Sony has exchange program for this for $136.00

Did you check the fuse on the main board?? Just be carefull when testing this unit with it open as it has line voltage on the power transformer. Unless you get a multi-meter and a diagram showing you the power supply your dead in the waterman. Sorry but you need the proper equipment to work on these things. This problem might even be a bit harder to find for A tech as its a man made problem I would advise at this point to put it together abd take to the shop. Good Luck

My DVD got stuck in the five disk player. I took off the cover and removed the disk from the player and still get the e 27 00 message.


Hi, do a hard reset. Unplug from power, wait 10 seconds, plug back in and power up. That should clear the error message unless there is another disc in there somewhere.

Old dvds wont play in old or new player bought 3 brand ones still wont work what brand player shuld i buy tell me whats wrong


If you have purchased multiple dvd players and none of them will play your DVDs (including your old player which previously played the old DVDs), then your issue is with the DVDs. You have to replace them because they have been damaged or scratched and can't be read by the laser anymore. DVDs are not indestructible and can eventually be damaged beyond repair. You'll have to replace the DVDs, which makes more economic sense than buying multiple DVD players to try and play them. If these are home movies or personal recordings you should contact a local computer store about data recovery.

I bought some DVDs at amazon.com, but I live outside the region code area witch the DVDs are supposed to work. I live in code area 4. I need someone to find a code to region 1. I have a Phillips home...


Hi there,

This player is relatively easy to change to region free. Please complete all of the steps below to unlock your DVD player.

Please note: Unlocking any DVD player may invalidate the warranty. Unlock sequences may not work with some firmware updates and some DVD players have been damaged through failed attempts to unlock them. Unlocking your DVD player is done at your own risk.

Unlock sequence for the Philips DVP 3020:

1. Switch on your TV and DVD player;

2. Make sure the TV is set to the correct input for the DVD player;
3. Remove any disc from the DVD player and close the disc tray;
4. Press the "SETUP" button on the DVD player remote control;
5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys to highlight "PREFERENCE";
6. Enter 1 3 8 9 3 1 using the numerical keys on the Philips DVD remote control;


A pop-up menu will appear on the TV screen.

7. Use the UP/DOWN arrow key and choose "0" for all regions;

That's it. You should now be able to watch DVDs from all regions on your player. It is also a good idea to switch the player to standby and then switch it back on before trying any discs.

This is a verified unlock sequence for the Philips DVP 3020. If it doesn't work the first time, switch the power off and start again at step 1. If it still doesn't work, it is likely that you have updated your Firmware to a new version and this unlock sequence does not work with your firmware version

If you need further assistance, please reply to me from within this page and let me know which firmware version you have installed in your DVD player.

Regards,
BElectric.

Dvd stuck in dvd player in 06 honda odyssey


I had the EXACT same thing happen with my 2 year-old and our 2006 Odyssey last week! I drove to the dealer today to have them remove it and after banging hard on the side of the DVD player for several minutes, they said it was really stuck and I would have to pay $400 to have the DVD player removed and sent to a repair center. What!?!?!

I came home and decided to try the tweezer idea. I am not handy and I'm eight months pregnant so I couldn't get as close as I would have liked to the DVD player but as soon as I propped the little rubber doors open with the tweezers to take a peek, I saw both DVDs!! I pulled the top DVD out in about 3 seconds. I then turned my car on and the second DVD popped right out!! :) I put the DVD back in to make sure everything worked and it did. I CANNOT believe I was considering spending $400 AND be without a DVD player for weeks while they shipped it off. The DVD I pulled out has a scratch from where the tweezers were holding on to it but it's on the very outside of the DVD and if I do need to replace it, ... we're talking $10-$20 rather than $400 . Sooooo glad I didn't listen to the dealer this time!!! :)

I can't record with my DVD player on 1x-16x DVDs


This unit is too old and too basic to handle 16x speed. However, there is a firmware update for this model DVD/VCR to record on 8x.

All you have to do is call the toll-free number in your manual and request it. They will send you an update disc.

Here is the basic procedure after you receive the update disc:

1. Turn on your TV and your combo unit. The tray should be closed. The unit must be in DVD mode.

2. Quickly press the sequence CM Skip, 6, 5, 4 (This will switch it into firmware update mode. The tray will eject automatically.)

3. Insert the disc and push the tray back in.


4. The update will begin. It will take approx. 2-3 minutes. It will tell you when it is complete and eject the tray.

5. When it is done, remove the disc, but DO NOT close the tray. It will go back in later. Turn the power off.

6. Wait a few minutes and when the tray goes back in wait about another 10 seconds and then you may turn the unit back on.

Firmware update procedure is now completed.
