Question about Yamaha DVD-S2500 DVD Player
Unit is one yr old . power will not come on. i checked power cord. is there a fuse that could have blown?
Hello, frustrated Yamaha owners.
I have destroyed two of these machines to remove my precious CD's. I did discover this today:
1. There is a fuse but it is soldered onto its circuit board.
2. There is no easy way, like using a paperclip on the old computer cd-rom drives, to release the cd/dvd tray. However, when I destroyed my second player, I noted there is a rather large piece of metallic tape on the bottom of the player to the right side of the front of the drive on the metal bottom cover plate of the machine. It is covering a slot about an inch long. If you carefully remove the tape and use, say a phillips head screwdriver, starting at the right side of the slot as you face the front of the player, you can slide a plastic bar that will free-up the tray slightly allowing one to pull the tray out and save the cd or dvd. I would do this with the player upright but hanging over the edge of a table so that the freed cd doesn't bang around against something in the process.
For what it is worth, I hope this helps.
Yamaha should be ashamed of producing a product at this price point with an issue like this. At the very least there should be a fail-safe way of removing a cd/dvd from the drive regardless of the issue with the electronics or drive mechanism.

If the fuse is not blown then buy a new one!
