Question about Philips Magnavox DVD Player MWD200F

Magnavox MWD200F not working anymore!!!

My DVD Player was plugged but it was NOT turned on. The lights went off at my neighborhood and, when the lights came back, the DVD Player was not working anymore. The DVD tray won't open, the DVD Player's red light won't be on. BUT the strangest thing is this, when the DVD is plugged, a very small sound can be heard all the time and, when I unplug the DVD, this sounds goes off, so I think the player is receiving electricity. This happened yesterday, and an expert from this site told me to leave it unplugged for at least 3 hours in order for it to reset and that will solve my problem. Today, more than 3 hours later, I plugged my DVD and nothing happened, just the same annoying little sound. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    I was cooking dinner and watching the new halloween movie. When dinner was done and my family came to make their plates, i could tell by the look on everyones face that they were not willing to try to stomach the gory movie through the course of dinner. So i pressed pause and changed the channel to the news. i forgot about the movie and after dinner i went to bed. When i woke up about 4am to feed the baby, i was annoyed by a high pitch humming noise coming from the entertainment center. After some detective work i came to conclude that it was the dvd player making the noise. So i tried to turn it off but it did not respond to my pressing the power button. i was holding the baby so i was trying to press the power button with my pinky, the only free finger i had...but the little pinky was not strong enough. so i unplugged the dvd player with my toe and went to bed. now it will not do does not respond to any buttons on the dvd player itself or on the remote...the red standby light is the only sign of life and it just glows...glows...glows...and glows, never changing. it has not made that noise since i unplugged fact it hasn't done anything at all...i'm gonna have to dismember it to get my movie out...but according to you guys, it's dead anyway... RIP

Since you have plugged out the DVD for 3hrs the conclusion is that you will need to take it to a repairman the problem with your DVD is that it got a surge due to the power failure.that sound you are getting is from the little transformer in the power supply,the current stops at the primary windings and is not crossing over the the secondary winding to complete the cycle.good luck i was the one who told you to plug it out for 3hrs

Recently we had a electrical storm in which the power went out and came back on several times. This DVD player is plugged into a surge protector. Now when I try to turn the player on, it gets stuck in...


sounds cooked, open it up and look at the board with a magnifying glass and a strong light to see if its cooked anywhere. that was a nice dvd player too. google the name brand of that surge strip and see if theres other complaints. get rid of that surge suppressor and get an apc which completely isolates all your living room electronics..

Sony DVD player color adjustment (Model #DVP-N5400D)

Solved the problem!Well, After reading two manuals on the Sony DVD player, I saw one cable not connected: the S Video connection. I connected that. Tried it out again, seemed a little better, but still not the full range of reds. At that point I thought the problem was either: 1) the cables from the DVD player to the TV or 2) the DVD player is the problem So, I thought I'd start with replacing the cables. Labeled them as to where they went, took them out and went to Radio Shack and explained my problem. The clerk I spoke to was very nice, said he had seen this problem before, and said there was a menu on the DVD for adjusting RGB settings.
So, I went back home, plugged in the cable, and went all thru the 2 Sony DVD booklets and the display menu on the TV. There was nothing mentioned re: color settings. Went thru the DVD menu many times, looking, looking. I felt I had come up with nothing.
Turned everything off. Turned back on. Put in a DVD: It looks great! :)
So, hoping it never happens again..cause I'm not sure I can repeat it! Maybe it was removing all the cables from their sockets and restarting...I know that sometimes works with computers...anyway.. At least I didn't have to buy a new DVD! Lesson: unplug, re:plug...before you trash it!
