Question about RCA CDRW120 2-Disc CD Recorder
I have a RCA CD Recorder and Player. It really has worked well over the last few years, but today I tried to turn it on and I see nothing to indicate that it is turned on: no lights, no disk drawers come out, etc. I tried it in a different plug and it does not work. I tried moving the fixed plug and cord around and there does not seem to be a short. The only thing I noticed was a strange, faint plastic smell in the cabinet. What can this be and what might it cost to fix it? Is it worth it after 4 years?
Hi, I'm assuming you have changed the fuse inside the plug. The poblem could be an internal fuse inside the amplifier which has blown due to a possible power cut or surge. The burning plastic smell could also be a few capacitors that have blown.
It sounds like a definite open up and take a look around job, if you want to you can open up the cd player and take a look for yourself, but BE CAREFUL. A service engineer may require to change the power board inside the cd player or other boards, it is very rare for an engineer to change components unless it is easy to do so. I believe some engineers will have a look around for you at no cost to you and evaluate the problem. As for cost your probably looking at over £100 for parts and labour depending on the engineer.
Hope this helps
