I don't have the service manual on this so a few more details will help. What is Q10 marked? It sounds to me like the output transistor is heating up because of DC or because of harmonic oscillations. Without an oscilloscope, this may be difficult to locate. Update this with the markings and I'll research this for you.

Power supply board bad, SNC61, SNC62 & SNR60 bad. (Burnt). On the Secondary side of PS. part number ORTP-760(SM-2)-Q20. Unit Model Number HT-Z210, Model Code HT-Z210/XAA S/N 9CMY 1HHQ300417R.

Because manufacturers these days lean toward complete board replacement rather than providing individual components for these, it would be easier to try and obtain another PSU PCB for this model series, assuming a spare is available. I doubt it would be economical or practical to repair this DVD player, since it sounds like the PSU has burnt out/blown up - major parts have been compromised within it; therefore making any repair cost prohibitive. You can always submit the player to a service centre for a second opinion, and/or you can simply ask them where you can obtain a good working (inexpensive) secondhand PSU board from (if that's what you want to do) for this model so you can fit it yourself. It is up to you as to what you decide to do from here - but it could prove expensive - and possibly unreliable in the long term.

Samsung have a habit of using unusually rated/valued non-standard components in their appliance power supplies, which makes the repair/modification harder. Often these parts are impossible to obtain, and some modifications don't work. You can try though. If you do manage to obtain replacement parts for this board, and you go ahead to try and fix it, I do recommend that you replace ALL the electrolytic capacitors on it as well. If at the end of it all, the board is still dead, cut your losses and consider purchasing a new player - but only as a last resort. I doubt you would be able to replace the plug sockets (SNC...) but if it is just dry solder joints on those as well as the rest of the board, retouch them.

Fingers crossed.

Samsung dvd p145 no disk


how long have you been using this player? I suspect the laser (lens) of the player. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD discs.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.

To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.

Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.

Good luck.
