Phillips DVD players come equipped with a standby mode that conserves power if the DVD has stopped playing and no buttons have been pressed within 15 minutes. The standby indicator light is located on the lower left of the unit, and the standby button is located in the top center of the standard Philips remote controller. If your Philips DVD player won't start properly after pressing the standby button, don't dismay. Troubleshoot the unit yourself before replacing it or calling a repair person.
Check the circuit breaker to make sure it has not been tripped. If the DVD player has no power, it won't turn on or come out of "standby" mode.
Ensure that the cords are completely plugged into both the wall and the DVD player.
Reset the unit by unplugging the power cord from the outlet, then replugging it a few minutes later.
Check the "sleep" mode, which is enabled by the standby mode after a certain period of time such as 15, 30, 45 or 60 minutes.
Press the "standby" button again and attempt to play the DVD.
Tips & Warnings
- Make sure your TV is set to the correct channel.
- Replace the batteries in your remote controller.
