Gpx dv7500 dvd player will not power on

It has been working fine for a couple of years, not used too often. Today we tried to turn it on. It powers up for a few seconds and then turns off permanently. It does this once each time it is newly plugged in . Never had an appliance that behaved this way. We just watched a dvd a few days ago. thanks for any advice

Re: gpx dv7500 dvd player will not power on

I've seen this problem before with devices that have audio amplification circuitry.

In the cases I've seen, the connections to the speakers were the culprits.

First of all, you should only use the GPX speakers that came with the device. I don't know what their impedance is, but if it was 8ohms, you should only use 8ohm speakers. The same for 4 ohm, 6 ohm, etc. The safe bet is to use the speakers that came with the system.

If you are using the intended GPX speakers, and they're hooked up correctly, (only one speaker per output) then I would suspect a short in at least one of the speaker wires.

Amplification circuits apply fluctuating power to the speakers which correlate the sound wave. The power reaches the speaker, has an electromagnetic effect on the speaker cone, which pushes it out or pulls it in. This produces sound. The speakers job is to be affected by the amplifier, and convert the electric power into a mechanical movement. Speakers of different impedances respond to different levels of power. Ideally, your amplifier will supply power to speakers that will use it all up and return none.

An amplifier designed to drive 8 ohm speakers will get too much kickback from little 4 ohm speakers. When I've seen this sympton before, the amplifier had another circuit designed to monitor dangerous conditions such as this and shut down to prevent permanenet damage. Another dangerous condition might be a short in one or more of the speaker wires. Inspect each and make sure none got stuck under the table, or slammed in a drawer or pinch by a staple or whatever.

Only two speakers work when a CD is being played...either MP3 or regular CD's. Why are the other speakers and subwoofer not playing sounds. Model DV7500

You mean a GPX DV7500? I can't find the manual. Do YOU have it? Do all the speakers work during setup or on real multichannel sources?

If you're using analog inputs and NOT selecting any of the DSP modes you will hear just stereo.

sounds like a bad solder joint that is GPX heats up, the crack starts to get bigger and cutting off electric circuit, then cool down closes the gap and current resumes. First try breaking and then making all possible connections outside then inside unit. Then, if no success, remove the circuit board and clean it with alcohol and brush then carefully look at each solder joint with a magnifying glass. If one found, simply re-solder it.

DVD Player

Here is the link for the user manual if you need it; I am assuming that power is on and you have tried the eject button. If you feel confident to try, then unplug machine and take off the top cover (looks like 5 screws at the back and then it should lift forward and up (just possibly the volume knob will need pulling off too, but maybe not) being careful not to touch anything inside, plug the machine back in and try eject and see if anything moves inside at all. sometimes cables can get bent in such a way as to block the tray form coming out. If you get nothing at all then i suspect either the tray drive motor is faulty, or the section of the power supply that powers it has failed. Just have a look in the back left corner where the power cable goes into the box and see if there are any fuses and check them. try plugging the machine into a different power socket in a different room just in case the supply voltage is the problem, if that works then call an electrician. Hope this helps :)

The volume is way to high even on the lowest setting

Sorry I don't have a solution. We have this model and ours is loud also, at the very lowest setting. I disconnected some of the speakers, and sometimes have to put the working speakers into a drawer to lower the sound.
