Question about Sanyo DVW-5000 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

After power outage remote not working.

We experienced a power outage and when power resumed I tried using the remote so I may set the time and programming for record again, but the remote will not work. Did the remote test on my cam and I get the light when I press a button, so my remote is working but cannot operate the dvd/vcr. Another problem before the outage the dvd player would not read many disk or when disk like that on a box series set where several episodes exist on a single disk, there would be skipping not able to read disk. Other disk it says cannot read disk and ejects to dvd. After power outage, also realized that now the dvd door will not even open just like another problem listed already.

Hi, this is a bit basic, try turning of for about 1/2 hour, to enable to discharge, then try again.
( I have used this on industrial installations, with far to complex computers stuff inside, and that mainly works)

SOURCE: Sanyo DVD player DWM-400 won't do work

A solution:

The problem I found with a unit I just got was that there is a capacitor next to a B1117 voltage regulator, I also though that
the problem was that this component was overheating but the
solution was to simply replace a 16V 100uF capacitor with a
bigger one, in my case a 16V 470uF.

Now my DWM-400 is working great.

If for obvious reasons you can't perform the replacement, just
take your unit to a repair shop and tell them to look for that capacitor.
tip: there are three B1117's, the one in question is the hottest one.

SOURCE: DVD Eject tray stuck

Your problem is more than likely mechanical. There is a belt that makes connection between the motor and the loading mechanism. Take the unit apart. Remove the belt it is probably in the front. Clean the belt and pullies with denatured alcohol. reassemble. The best solution is to replace the belt but this may get you working till you get one. Belt sources

SOURCE: DVD player problem

I had the same problem before.  I found a loose rubber ring which drives the door open/close may be the cause.  Use honey wax or candle wax to wax the ring will be most likely to solve the problem.  The only thing is you need open the box by yourself.

In regards to the problem to your Linksys wrt54g note working properly sometime when there is a power outage you get a power spike that wipes out the setting on the unit and all you have to do is reset all the setting like it was a new unit. I have one of the first generation Linksys wrt54g units and had to do this time to time.

If you still have trouble let know that you are having trouble with and I can tell you if you are going to need to replace the unit or not.

The waste ink absorber is almost full. Press the printer's RESUME

Yes, you can do it at home (if not under warranty).
Open the top cover and look for a place where there is a lot of semi-dry ink. Remove this sponge carefully and then (after reassembling your printer) follow the steps below to reset your printer:

1) Power off printer
2) Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER.
3) Hold POWER and Release RESUME.
4) Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons.
5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times.
6) Press power to set data.

WARNING: This procedure is followed by experienced service personnel to solve this problem but, if followed incorrectly, can render YOUR PRINTER USELESS. I post it here for your reference only. Try this at YOUR OWN RISK.

Error code 5100 and belt that moves ink cartridge is making noise.

hi there....
since u dint specify ur printer model.... iam giving u a generic reset procedure..... first try this
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..

5100 is a Carriage Home Position Error. if the above reset procedure dint help....
try cleaning the plastic strip that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated.
Use alcohol and a swab.
check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
if even after cleaning the strip ur experiencing the problem then u can be rest assured that its time to call canon...
thank you for using Fixya...
have a nice day
Please rate this solution.

In most cases you just have to reset your modem and/or router, to do this just unplug the modem for the mains for 2 minutes, plug it back in and wait another 2 minutes for it to settle down, then you can try to reconnect to the server.

We experienced a power outage and now the television is locked. It is asking for a code, which we don't have. How do we bypass or reset the television.

Using the Mitsubishi2.gif remote, go to the locked function and when it asks for the code pres QV and 9 at the same time on the remote, this will work in any mode which may be locked, including entering a new password!
