    I have the Philips DVP642, and while I don't have the issue of the red light staying on and nothing else working I have a problem. The unit will turn on, but it will repeatedly attempt to load the disc and then say no disc when in fact there is a disc in there. Before I go tearing the unit apart to see if this capacitor is the problem I was wondering if anyone else had any other suggestions.

    Thanks

    It is common for the LED laser diode to fail in DVD players. one way to troubleshoot is to try a CD as they use a different laser diode for DVD's and CD's. If both CD and DVD have problem you may as well try replacing capacitor C316. It cannot hurt. I made a video of the step by step repair:
