    My Cyber Home CH-DVD300 player will not power up.

    Before it would power up and not play, but, now nothing.

    1-Have power to Black and White connector.(121 volts on meter)

    2-Fuse is checked and is good.(I took out to check)

    3-No burn marks anyplace.

    Any ideas?

    My 300 won't power up. I used the emergency slot on the bottom to get my disc out. Other than caps what's up with this thing? No support, the company went bankrupt.

    Same problem, unit just died. Checked the voltage and 120VAC is present up to the input of T1 which is a coil or transformer number EF20-1401.

    No voltage out of transformer.

    Thanks, I checked fuse, cord, etc. Then found my newer portable player will connect to my system and suffice for what I need. So will give this one away to someone else who wants to play with it!

    the power supply is ok, but my dvd don't turn on.

  • Ludwix Oct 15, 2008

    Rearranged my TV system; pulled the plug on the player. On reinserting there was a brief flash at the 115V power. Now the unit will not power up -

    panel or remote.

    Any suggestions?

Check voltage on the two extreme wires of the CN2 connector on the power supply board. On the yellow wire has to be 12V against one of the black wires (GND - ground, negative) and on the red wire you must measure 5V. If voltages are bellow this levels there is a problem with the power supply. In most of cases the 2200uF/10V capacitor is blown. I recommend to replace all the electrolytic capacitor of the power supply board with new ones. Observe capacitances and voltages of the new capacitors! You can use higher voltages (but never lower!) but the same capacitances. You can make it with little soldering skills.

Have a good luck and sorry for my English...

If there are no indicators that it is receiving power such as timer/clock, standby light, whirring sound when first plugged in, then initially, it would be safe to say that the internal power supply is the culprit. For the moment, course of action would be:

  • confirm power availability on the outlet (which as you posted performed already);
  • check the AC cord/powerline of the unit with a continuity tester;
  • check the fuse (inside);
  • check for the presence of standby voltage (normally +5).
Of course most of the above would require opening the unit which needs a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Appreciate your postback and comment, likewise the rating.

    @phillipslane, oxer & muskymike,

    My apologies for the very late reply. It is only when dreamwvr posted anew that I was informed that there are other postings of similar concerns.

    To address your problems. The power supply is basically an SMPS (switch mode power supply) very similar in design and principle to the power supply of your PCs. The 120 VAC is first converted to about 180~200VDC that supplies a high frequency circuit which then feeds the transformer, The output is high frequency high current which in turn is converted/regulated to the required DC voltage of the CH-DVD 300.

    Most SMPS design has a 2 X 2 (4) terminal optical coupler as well as an 8 pin controller IC on the secondary side. Repairs would be facilitated if you have a copy of the service manual or at least the schematic diagram. In the absence of those, data sheets and application notes of the earlier mentioned optical coupler and controller IC could provided basis for working voltages.

    Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

    Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

turn off and unplug from power outlet, let sit a few minutes....then plug in power up, check JVC home page on net to see if they have problems with these, could be a disc stuck in unit....if door will not open, take back to where you bought it....I have a Pioneer but I did take the cover off and a DVD was stuck in side, I managed to carefully remove is a slow process as everything is made from plastic

I have a trutech undercounter mount DVD/TV combo. It was working fine, and all of a sudden it turned off and will not come back on. We checked the outlet and it is fine.

Unplug the power cord from wall outlet and take the unit apart follow the power cord inside the unit it goes to the fuse. Check the fuse most of the time the fuse is bad.

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.
1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

Hope it may help you;

  • plug other devices into the outlet to make sure you have not tripped a breaker.
  • unplug the tv for 30 to 120 minutes and then plug it back in.
  • make sure any power strip you have it plugged into is turned on, reset the strip if necessary.
