Why won't my Toshiba dvr 620 not coming on?


Parts like you're needing are nearly impossible to find. More than likely the same thing happened to yours as the one I have in my shop. Sometimes during power surges, spikes, and lightening strikes, things get damaged. I found in the 2 units I have worked on, one, it was as simple as a blown fuse, which if that is what happened to yours, it's an easy fix and should not cost more than $40 to repair. Or, if you're savvy on fixing things, about a $5 250V fuse is all you need and about 30 minutes time.
In the case of the second DVR it had bypassed the fuse, and the fuse was fine, but wiped out the transformer on the power supply. In my case I can not find part 08046871041 which is just the transformer to repair the power supply, nor can I find part 08246871060 which is the complete power supply. Good luck search, if you get lucky and find one please let me know where I can find it at, I have also researched for replacement parts that would work with no luck.

I have a JVC DR-MX1SEK dvd combi recorder. It was working well when I was searching for another problem when I removed the plug from the mains socket and a blue flash came out of the recorder. I removed...


Not sure if you have resolved this but that fuse is widely available. It is a 20mm x 5mm 2 amp slow blow glass fuse. It is perfectly possible that your replacement was correct but that a separate fault in the machine is causing the fuse to blow. Remember, fuses are designed to protect things (either the machine or you) and to blow if a fault causes more current than is safe.

INTERNAL FUSE BLOWN (T500mAL250V) - WHERE CAN I OBTAIN REPLACEMENTS?


It is a T (Trage German for Slow) 500mA 250V fuse.
So you can pop into any electronic parts shop and ask for a "Slow blow 500 Milli Amp 250 volt fuse".
better yet take the old one with, and get be sure to get the same size (physical) one.

I got the ch-DVD 300 no power anymore, I opened and I saw the fuse blown out,where can I get a new one? it says T2AL-250V and measures 3/4 of inch.


This is not a good solution but it is one I have used for extreme situations.
Take a single strand from an old cheap lamp cord and solder it across the ends of the fuse. This will create a new fuse of approx. 1 amp. I made a safe cross country flight in a private plane by making a temporary fuse when a new one wasn't available.

AKAI DVD PLAYER FIXING


Hello NOUSHADK,
I have good news and bad news for you. I'll give you the good news first. You know that new DVD player you have been wanting but never could buy because you already had a DVD player? 
Well, let's just say that you don't have that problem any more. When you dropped that screw on that resistor, you not only caused the fuse to blow, but you took out a few other components with it. This type of power supply is called a switching power supply because it takes AC voltage and then converts that AC voltage to DC voltage to power part of the circuits in the DVD player, then it takes some of the DC voltage produced and uses it to power an oscillator which provides a switching action for a Power MOSFET which is used to drive a switching transformer and then that voltage is converted into DC voltage for the other circuits not powered by the first power supply. Now this creates a problem, because when these types of power supplies blow out they take a lot of components (active and passive) with the blown out component.
Now for the bad news. These types of supplies are very seldom repairable, not because you can't find the parts and not because you cant find the layout, but usually because the parts are hard to find, in the case of the MOSFETs, the Switching Oscillator, and other active components.  Also, the schematics for these devices are not to be found anywhere even by locating the manufacture. This is because most of these units are put together in Taiwan or in Bangkok and then branded by a company, meaning the company whose name is on the unit is not the company who manufactured the unit. So schematics and service diagrams are usually not to be found.
I know this may not help you, but you can try to find the Power supply manufacture by using google, and getting them to send you a new board, or you can try to repair the board yourself, but remember you will have to hunt down at least 3 bad active components and a number of bad passive components.
Thank you,
Shuttle83

Fuse T1.6L250V


The fuse which you have used is of correct rating 250v/5A, the switching regulator of the SMPS primary section is faulty, so the fuse blows of continously
