Ich had the same problem right after warranty! Philips told me to send in the player, but said, that he cant tell me, wheter it can be repaired or not. I told him that he should knew about this problem, because I am not the first. No answer.
Because warranty is over I have to full pay everything. I did not sent it to Philips. Maybe I will do it in future.

It was will be my last device made by Philips!

Has anyone got the player repaired?

This is the second Philips I had, this one being later in series, and a little after my warrenty ran out it stopped spinning the discs completely. I don't mean to be rude, but I wouldn't suggest buying any Philips CD/MP3 players for anyone.

Weird... exactly the same problem. Right after the warranty went out, my expanium (EXP311/00) claims that every CD is unfinalized...

If I can't find a fix for this, this will be my last Philips ever...

Damn, I have the same Player and since a week the same problem. Right after my warranty went out the problems startet and now I have Unfinalized CD with all my CD's original and burnt.

Well, I believe they added a function to destroy itself or parts of it after 2 years so youll have to buy a new one.
