Smoking dvd player

Like a few of the other ppl on here have commented our dvd player is just about 2 months old and we have it set up in the living room i hear a sudden i hear a pop then a few more to follow then the smell of smoke makes it way to me.i finally ruled out that it was the tv and find out that it is the dvd player.but the thing that has be baffled is it was not even on. So in turn it is going in the trash the minute it cools down.Just thought i would share this as for it is a fire hazard.

I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.

Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.

I just purchased a Sony CD/DVD player, model #DVP-SR200P. I assume that I've hooked everything up correctly. I get sound and picture. But, the picture is in black & white. What am I doing wrong? Is...

Try to go under the settings in the dvd player. Be sure all the setting are set up according to your TV.

Sometimes if you dont have it set to N. American standards it can output like that. Be sure its set to "NTSC" if you live in N. America or Japan. If you live in Europe be sure its set to "PAL".

Let me know If this is not a issue in comments and I will help you further but I think this is it.

Blinking standby light, dead dvd player

Hello illeanaceres,

I'm sorry to hear about the bad news, I had something similar happen to me around a month ago.

Honestly there is not much you can do if it is damaged due to a power surge. Resetting it would be the normal procedure.

Surge protectors only protect equipment up to a certain amount of joules. Basically if the lightning is powerful enough it can damage electronics with that initial surge. You should replace your surge protectors every few years if it is 2-3 years old then it may not be as effective.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

These players don't play through channels like the old school VCRs or some early DVD players.
This is either connected through your HDMI or component video cable input on your HDTV.
You need to toggle through your inputs on your TV to the proper one where your BD Player is connected through.
If you have it connected to an analog TV, then you need to toggle through your TV inputs as well. Usually called Video 1, Video 2, Etc.

Loud pop and smoke is what happens when capacitor blow off. These things happen. It doesn't mean product is dangerously defective. Faulty capacitor, or circuit board, or a power surge can cause this. If it's two months old, it's probably under manufacturer warranty, and you'd be able to get it fixed without any extra cost. Good luck.
