DVD player stuck in standby mode

My DVD player is stuck in the standby mode. I can turn the power on and off but when I turn the player back on, the standby light blinks and it stays in the standby mode. I have disconnected the power cord completely and reconnected trying to "reboot" but this hasn't helped either. I'm not sure how long ago this started or the circumstances that created this situation. Thank you.

Re: 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.

Re: DVD player stuck in standby mode

Try this: Hold in the StandBy/Power button do not un-press it this entire time. While pressing in StandBy/Power button then unplug the unit/DVD CD player from outlet and CONTINUE to press in StandBy/Power button. Holding StandBy/Power button for a full minute to minute and a half while unit is unplugged. After the full minute to minute and a half then let go of StandBy/Power button. After you have let the StandBy/Power button go (unpress) then plug the unit back into the outlet. It should now come out of the Stand By frozen mode and the drawer for DVD/CD should open when you press eject and the unit should work again. Worth a try.

DVD player stuck on standby

There is a problem in the power supply caused by one or more open capacitors, in some cases they develop a bulge at the top making it easier to find.

Stuck on standby mode I have unpluged and it still is stuck on standby

It sounds like power supply problem, I have found that sometimes the main filter capacitor opens causing the machine to fail. It will take a professional to determine if that is the case or there is something else wrong.

Onkyo DV-SP301 DVD player stuck in standy mode

Had an Onkyo DV-SP301 that would only intermittently come out of standby. Found faulty resistor R2 on the power supply board (board ORTP-865), it was nominally 5600 ohms, measured much higher. This after checking most p/s caps! R2 runs warm when unit is in standby, so you may want to replace with a higher power rated resistor. I used same rating but 10 k ohm instead, worked fine then.

Stuck on Standby

Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.

Hope this may help;

Integra DPS 8.5

The Integra DPC-8.5 changer (as opposed to the DPS-8.3 single-play unit -- not sure which you have, as you mention DPS-8.5, a non-existent model) and most of the integra line of players, will sometimes be thrown into brainlock by out-of-step shutoffs. They will usually respond to the Integra/Onkyo instruction manual's directions to turn it off (you're already done that), then unplug the power cord from the back of the machine, wait a few seconds (make it 30 to be safe), then plug it back in and turn it on via the standby switch. The screen should display its welcome message, cycle through startup, and being working again. It is very much like rebooting a PC. In fact there is little difference.

If this doesn't work then something has gone wrong inside and probably has nothing to do with your shutdown method on the way out the door. These things do happen. Hopefully by now you've already figured this out. If not, give it a try. It usually works.
