Well the dvd mechanism is probably broken now and that is the reason the system shutdown, philips can offer you a out of warranty exchange price to get it exchanged but they probably don't carry repair parts for this unit anymore, I would buy a new system

My dvd won't play. every dvd i put in, it says bad disc. the vcr works fine. is it time for a new system. i tried a head cleaner and it says bad disc


Hello,
Not necessarily time for a new one. I would give the DVD player a good cleaning before you consider a new unit. A good cleaning disk with some little bristles on it. Run it through three full times. DVD players are far more sensitive than VCRs and have to be cleaned even two weeks or so. When they get real dirty it can take some fooling with to get the DVD player to even accept the cleaning disk. But if it just won't accept the cleaning disk and you can't watch a DVD in it then it's time for a new one. I had a DVD player one time that took an hour of fooling around with before it got cleaned good enough to play DVDs. Worked for a couple years afterward.
Regards, Tony

Sony tv will play copies of movies from tv, but won't play store bought new ones. I mean current popular ones. It played Avatar last week but won't now. We tried several new movies and none will play. Put...


There is some confusion in the explanation here.

The TV does not play movies it displays them It is the DVD that Plays them. But of course you knew that. Some of the newer movies like avatarcan be on Blu ray if your DVD is supposed to play Blu ray but doesn't don't be surprised as they have changed the format recently. Your DVD will require an udate of firmnware. Go to the website of the DVD brand and contact support Download the update and burn it to a disc and run it.

With the TV end Make sure the resolution can be accepted from the DVD you are trying to Play. If it isn't HD or capable of 1024x768 at 16.4 then it may not be able to display the image. Is there any sound?

If sound but no Pic then start playing with the picture format. go to 8.2 or 4,0 to see if it makes any difference

Wii keeps ejecting all games. Have had it for 2 years. Kids played on it all last week. Now it won't accept any game - it just keeps spitting them out.


There's either something jammed inside of the Wii's DVD Drive, or a part on the inside of the DVD drive is broken. All drives have a sensor on the inside to let it know that a disc is fully loaded and seated. If the sensor isn't engaged within a few seconds, it will spit the disc back out.

You can find a new DVD drive at the following website:

If You can play Other Dvds Very Good. Then Make Sure Your Dvd Have No Scratches. If So Then Wash it with Water. And Clear it with smooth cloath.
If Still U Facing Problem Then You can Check It In Another Computer.

Not playing


im not sure if this is going to help, but it helped when mine wouldnt start. take off the top frame of the dvd player so you can see part of the disk tray. put the dvd in and if you notice that its not spinning, then try spinning it to the left with your finger.

you can go to wal-mart or any electronic store and get a laser eye cleaner for DVD - I recommend the Philips system, for under $15 you get the DVD laser eye cleaner and a disk cleaner with a micro fiber cloth it's a great deal just DO NOT use it in a laptop, laptop's take a different type but the disk cleaner is universal

try this first
