    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.

Philips digital tv won’t turn on.

unplug from electric, wait 30 seconds, plug back in. Check that you have power at the outlet (fuse/breaker shut off?) If it has a power word which plugs into the TV as well as the wall, be SURE it is tightly attached to BOTH. Make sure you aren't blocking the remote control receiver (you can turn most TVs on/off on the TV itself -- look for a power button). Be sure your remote has fresh batteries. Good luck!

My tv turns on and off without touching it

First of all ensure that this is not caused by the power inlet. Many a times, loose contacts in power outlet can cause this problem. Try connecting the TV to a different power outlet. If problem persists, it is better to call in a qualified service technician, since the back cover has to be opened for investigation.

Why does plasma tv not come on?

Check the power outlet. Try connecting it to a different power outlet. Look for any jammed buttons on remote. Retry by removing batteries of the remote and operating the TV from the control panel. If nothing works, the power supply has gone bad. It could also be a blown fuse.

My projector won't turn on, only the power light shows red, the status light is blank. Tried the remote and manually turning it on.

If the power light is ON and status light is OFF; check if any objects are blocking the air inlet or outlet grill, and remove them if any, and carry out the following.
[1] Unplug the power cord from wall outlet.
[2] Make sure that the projector has cooled off.
[3] Plug the power cord into the wall socket.
[4] Press the power button.
Check whether the cooling fan has stopped. The problem is with overheating itself.
If these does not help you, your projector need service. OK.

All of a sudden the MP560 won't turn on. The outlet is working but the printer doesn't respond to the ON button. I've checked the power cord it seems to be ok, the cord hasn't moved or been...

This may be a longshot, but many electronic devices like TVs, dryers with electronic computerized controls, entertainment systems like the Wii, and other devices sometimes get "confused" and won't turn on, turn off, or otherwise work properly, perhaps due to a small power surge in your AC line.

I've found that one of the first things to try when it appears to be a failure of the electronics and not a mechanical issue is to unplug the device at the wall (to make sure that any power adapter is also unplugged) and wait about 10 minutes for any residual electric charge to dissipate. Then plug the device back in and give it a try. This has worked with a television, a Wii console, an electric clothes dryer, and some other devices that I thought had died for good. This may explain why sometimes a device is taken to a repair shop and it works fine.

There are, of course, other reasons that the unit won't turn on, but I would try this first before looking for other reasons for the problem.

My tv won t turn on i just purchased it today i plugged it in and it won t turn on

Check the electrical outlet which the tv is plugged into. Make sure nothing is loose at the outlet as well as on the back of the tv where the power cable plugs in. Another thing to try is plug a different device into that same electrical outlet and see if it turns on. If it doesn't turn on, it could be a faulty electrical outlet. If you've tried both the remote & the power button on the tv, a shot in the dark would be to change the batteries in the remote.
You could always try calling their tech support at 1-800-256-2487. A last resort would be to return the tv from where you purchased it.
