Pull it's power plug out for 10 minutes then reconnect and switch on and see how it is then.
You may need to run Auto Set-Up again.

Why does my philips portable dvd player not work


It is attempting to read the disc. Try another KNOWN GOOD disc. If you get the same error, try cleaning the lens using a lens cleaner disc or a dry q-tip. If no go, sorry, she's a gonner :(

follow the steps. God bless you
Insert a DVD lens-cleaning disc into your player and press "Play" to clean the DVD laser, eliminating picture problems due to read errors. Do not use a CD cleaning disc as the brushes on these discs can damage your laser.

  • 2 Wipe your DVDs clean of all visible marks and dirt using a lint-free cleaning cloth moistened with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaner. This further fixes read errors which can damage the quality of picture and sound.


  • 3 Disconnect your DVD player from the TV or receiver you have it connected to. Reconnect the DVD player directly to the "AV" or "Video In" port of your television, firmly pushing the plug into place, to eliminate possible noise from the receiver and ensure a clean connection.
  • 4 Connect your DVD player using an S-Video, component video or HDMI cable. Standard yellow/red/white RCA connectors cannot carry the high-quality signal that DVD discs are capable of transmitting, and will display a particularly poor picture on flat-screen high definition televisions. Use an HDMI cable, if your television and player support it, or a red/blue/green component video cable.
  • 5 Press "Setup" on your DVD remote and enter "Picture Settings." Make sure your DVD player is set to display images in the correct screen format ("Widescreen" or "16 x 9" for HDTV sets, "Standard" or "4 x 3" for older square sets) and scan mode. If you are using a DVD player that supports "Progressive Scan" on an HDTV or flat-screen set, activate this setting; for older sets, choose "Interlace" if given a choice.

    I purchased a DVD that states: Widescreen Format (Aspect Ratio 1.85.1) I'm unable to get 'widescreen/letterbox'. The movie shows up full screen or a 'stretched' view. All other movies I've...


    On the DVD recorder remote: press function menu button: enter setup screen - scroll down to connection - TV aspect - select either 16:9 / 4:3 Letterbox / 4:3 Pan&scan. If you are using an older TV which is not a widescreen, set the aspect to '4:3 Letterbox'.

    You should now be able to view your DVD movies from this machine through a 4:3 standard TV in letterbox format. (some DVDs do not allow pan&scan so letterbox or widescreen is recommended). Very rare that a DVD title is not compatible with 4:3 TVs. I assume your deck is set to output 16:9 aspect by default.

    I find this is the cheapest and easiest solution and can save lots of dollars in service call-outs. You can always reset the unit back to shipping condition later if you need to, or in the rare case of digital channels disappearing from your tuner memory.

    Why my regular dvd player with widescreen movies does not fill my hd tv ?


    ok, There are 2 aspect ratio's for tv/movies. Widescreen Standard
    If you have a Widescreen TV, Widescreen formatted dvd's will fill the hole screen, Standard formatted dvd's will not fill the whole screen
    if you have a Standard TV, Standard formatted dvd's will fill the whole screen, Widescreen formatted dvd's will not fill the whole screen
    this is normal, check to see the format of the dvd you are trying to use.
