So I had noticed that when playing a dvd-r with multiple Divx/xvid files on it, the player seemed to make a funny noise while trying to initially read the discs. But they always ended up working once they finally loaded up. And the night before last was no differant. I had a dvd-r with several movies on it, i loaded it up and watched one, then shut it off and went to bed. The next night I attempted to watch another movie on the same disc, but when I turned the player on I got a 'No Disc' message. So I tried a differant dvd-r, same result. And then I tried a retail DVD, same result. The only thing it will play are CD's. If a divx or xvid is on a cd it will play, svcd, vcd..no problem. But if its a dvd it wont read it. Also, I cant enter any codes on the main blue Philips screen. This is a real bummer, I dont understand what could have caused this..anyone have any ideas I could try before I just go buy a new one? Heres what I've tried so far- 1. Installing the newest firmware 2. unplugging for a period of time(all day) So if anyone can shed some light I would be grateful.
