Electricity went out when it came back on the standby light (red) flashes cannot turn on -nothing works help

Try unpluging the unit from AC outlet, and waiting for at least 5 min before plugin in back in this will reset the unit to do a hard reset. If problem persists then it is possible you now have power supply problem.

Standby light is blinking red will not open dvd or play at all

in a situation like this, there are only a few things you can do.

unplug the unit and wait for an hour or 2, and plug it back up and see what happens. if the unit is making any unusual noises (listen carefuly to it) then it will more than likely need to be repaired.

depending on the price, you might just consider going and picking up a cheap dvd player from wal-mart or something.

Sansui SAN0901 DVD Recorder - Power Problem

Hi Pandjoy,
I have been struggling with the same problem and almost rebuilt the power supply before finding the solution. In my case it was a faulty capacitor-C4, next to the diode D4. Replacing C4 and the machine performed as new. I hope this helps. Cheers

turn the power on. to get rid of the red light you need to press the timer/rec button on the remote until it turns off. the red light means it is programed to record.

DVD player stuck in standby mode

Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.

Philips dvd player not working

Im sorry to tell ya that you did all the things I would have suggested, so it sounds like a system control problem or a power supply problem, and if its a good machine then maybe its worth you having a service person look at it?? Most dvd units are not worth it these days, unless there combos or recorders.. Sorry couldnt be of more help.
