Question about Pioneer DVR-520H DVD Recorder
After my Pioneer records on timer recorder it turns itself off (which it should do) but loses all power to it (which it shouldn't do). I then turn it off and after 30 mins or so it comes back on. The time for recovery is becoming increasingly longer. I have taken the player in to be repaired they have changed some parts. Whenever the Pioneer is in the workshop this problem does not happen. The repairman says he has spoken to Pioneer but has no clues. Can you please help? Cheers Saturn
Hi Saturn et al,
I had similar issues with my Pioneer DVR-520H. It completely went off for quite a while when it should be going to standby after a timer session. At the start it would come good after a few days. Eventually it went off altogether and nothing would bring it back.
With my father-in-law being an electronics person we investigated with the help of the service manual which I found on the net. The finger was duly pointed at the power IC (MR2920) on the power supply board (Pioneer will sell only the complete board). I ordered the IC from the UK (nikko-electronics.co.uk) GBP8.99 which was the only place I could find it online and soldered it in myself (easy, if you can solder).
All fixed and working again.
Hope this helps.
