Samsung dvd/vcr combo won't turn on

Hi, My combo unit won't turn on. I took it apart, visually checked the capacitors, and replaced the supply unit fuse - 1.6A 250V (I tried 3 fuses). I also checked to cord, removed both the DVD and the VCR units. When I plug in the supply unit there's a very low humming noise. Does anyone have an idea what can be done?

SOURCE: DVD VCR combo has no power

I found out what the issue was with my Samsung DVD-V5500. It was the rectifier diode on the 15V tap of the high frequency transformer. This is the same issue that someone else with a later model V5600 had talked about. The diode had shorted and behaved like a piece of wire.

Seems to be a bit of weak point in the power supply. The issue can be diagnosed by using a multimeter to measure the resistance between the diode cathode and ground. If the meter is measuring 1 Ohm between the cathode and ground, your diode needs replacing. I just replaced it with a UF4003 diode from Jaycar, which is basically an Ultra Fast 200V 1A diode suitable for switching the high frequency (20-30kHz) output from the transformer.

The diode is located at the rear right hand corner of the board on the output of the power supply section. A picture below shows the new diode between orientated east-west between the large capacitors. The original diode that failed was an SHG2D SHS.

"Sounds" correct to me.  Are you going by the instructions that came with the converter box?  And, "ANT In" to the box from your antenna?

GO VIDEO model 1030....VCR works fine...DVD..nothing happens...door won't even open?


Combo units have this essential flaw--if one half fails you are usually done especially if the DVD side fails.

If Door does not open either a disc is jammed inside the mechanism or the mechanism is out of alignment or damaged.

Good argument against buying these units--DVD individual parts are rarely sold--only (if available) would be the entire DVD unit itself--not cost effective to repair.

DVD players are now real cheap (see some for as little as $20) so if not a simple jammed disc or something like that buy a DVD player.

Go Video DV 2150 - DVD door won't open at all. You can hear a mechanism working behind the closed door, but nothing happens and the door remains shut. Any advice??


There is a small belt under the loading tray which would have gone slack ( loose ) and the sound you hear is it slipping on the motor pulley. If you are confident you can remove the mechanism and turn it upside down and access this belt. Dismantle only if you can get the spare belt or your efforts will be in vain.

We have a Samsung Smart TV. We cannot get the signal and have installed a Digital Satellite Receiver. We have a Magnavox VCR and a sony DVD Player. We owuld like to attache the same to our TV and watch...


Hi there,

Depending on your Satellite receiver's output type (i.e. HDMI or Component - Red, Green, Blue) you should connect to your tv's appropriate external inputs. Example: if you choose to connect the receiver via HDMI, then you use the SOURCE button on your tv and select the correct HDMI input you have connected your device to. If connected by Component (Red, Green, Blue) then use the SOURCE button to select the correct Component input, and so on.

Note: HDMI is the best connection type - you won't be able to access your receiver from the tv's built in tuner.

As above explanation, your VCR and DVD devices should be connected to your tv in the same manner - unless it is a combo unit (VCR & DVD in one), in which case this device can be tuned into your chosen tv channel (via the tv's tuner).

Note: if you have one of the latest SMART tv's, it should already have a built-in "Hi Definition" tuner which will allow you to watch free digital tv broadcast (DVB).

Hope this helps...

My DVD/VHS combo remote control no longer activates the unit. I have replaced the batteries (2 times). What should I do next?


Hi,

Good day. You might need to purchase another remote control so that you can access your dvd / vhs combo. I'm afraid that the remote is already broken due to normal use. You can also try to have a technician to check it for you but i suggest you bring it to a samsung authorized service center. Hope this give you a bit of help. Have a great day.

Had a power outage. Now my Samsung DVD+CD combo is maing a high pitched whine when I plug it in.


If the unit is now dead or in standby but nothing else the high pitched whine is likely to be a capacitor on the powerboard which has failed, a decent repairer should be able to replace the cap fairly easily although most will just want to swap the whole powerboard out which is expensive.
a capacitor that is whining will usually show itself visually aswell by the top becoming convex rather than flat so if you have electrical knowledge you may be able to identify and replace it yourself although obviously you need to make sure the the unit is not connected to the mains when doing this.

I have the Samsung V4600 DVD VHS combo player


Take Samsungs advice The cost or replacement parts exceeds the cost of a new unit. Add to that the cost of labour and alignment tools and then you will realize what is involved. Fitting heads is a precision job, not a DIY

My samsung dvd/vcr v5600 will not power up.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described problem indicates a blown fuse inside the DVD/VCR combo. Exact location would depend on the model and regional version. What is common to all is that it would be immediately after the power cord as it enters the combo unit.

Some ideas to further guide you if the fuse is glass tube type:
  • if the break of the fusible wire is clean, then it would be relatively safe to simply replace;
  • if however, the glass tube is darkened with burnt marks, then there would be some other components defective such as the regulator transistor and/or filter capacitor.
Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
