Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have an old Kenwood DP-860 CD player. It will not power up. I removed the back and I found voltage through the switch and to the transformer. I do not see a fuse. On the other side of the transformer there is a multi wire connector. I see voltage but I have no schematic to follow. Maybe it is something easy. Thanks for the help...

Hello there. i'll suggest you one quick solution but it maybe dangerous!(Do it the greek way :P) try to remove the transformer from the machine. Take one Ohm meter and measure the resistance of the 120 vac coil. IF THERE IS NOT ANY (i mean that the ohm meter shows nothing diferent than not using it) get a paper blade and start removing the paper cover that it has rounded from the place where the 120 vac wires goes. you will see there that there is a mini thermal fuse.short circuit the thermal fuse and try to measure again the resistance of the 120 vac coil. if you see something between 40 and 80 ohms you are ok. Now that you haven't got any thermal fuse on your transformer just increase your security putting on a 300 mA fuse at the 120vac coil. I have done it with many hard to find transformers and it worked for me.Just be sure that when you plug it on, you will not touch it because i don't know if you are gonna do it right.ok? (say ok!) That was the second solution to your problem. The first and the safest is to go to your local dealer and order a new transformer.

SOURCE: power transformer problem
You need the service manual for those values. A quick google search shows it costs more than the replacement transformer! http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=XG539A00+&meta=
But that is for the 110v version @$21. The same company sells the service manual @$24 or just keep googling.

try to play a song from original cds.
maybe you brunt it in mp3 file, or its a different format. try to burn your song to cd-r.
if still, try to use nero to burner..
if it wont play your original cds and burnt cds,then the optical lens or the board is broken.
hope I helped you.
