    The light is flashing, and the unit is wholly unresponsive. Unplugging did not reset or change this. The tray won't open.

SOURCE: blinking lights

I left if off and unplugged for a few hours. When I plugged it in it started working again. My recommendation if this happens to you is to just unplug it all and let it stand for at least 4 hours and then plug it back in.

Good Luck

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!

During a thunderstorm, the power flickered off for an instant with the GPX D1816 in standby mode (red light?), but now the standby light is blinking green and it will not work.


If the indicator light is blinking it is probably a faulty power supply. I just fixed mine today. Open the player up by removing the Phillips screws and locate the power supply board - this is the circuit board that connects directly to the incoming 120 Volt power. On this board look closely at the barrel shaped capacitors and note any bulging at the top of these capacitors. My 1000uf 16volt cap was just barely bulging so I decided to replace it with a piece salvaged from an old PC power supply. It is simply a matter of de-soldering the old piece and soldering in a new one. If you must purchase one you could probably get one from Radio Shack or Digi-Key for under a dollar. The replacement should be 1000uf and rated for at least 16volts or more.

My standby light keeps blinking on my sharp bdhp20u after firmware update (20uhu9071500- this is the firmware update I used)


Try powering down by the power button if the firmware completed, then powering back up. If this don't work then try hard reset by unpluging the player then while holding the power button in plug back in and continue to hold poer button until it powers up.

hope this helps,

Standby light is blinking red will not open dvd or play at all


in a situation like this, there are only a few things you can do.

unplug the unit and wait for an hour or 2, and plug it back up and see what happens. if the unit is making any unusual noises (listen carefuly to it) then it will more than likely need to be repaired.

depending on the price, you might just consider going and picking up a cheap dvd player from wal-mart or something.

Had a similar problem after loading a suspect dvd (one I had burned myself) Could not do anything - stuck at loading. Don't remember if the fan was running. From what I have read these units are touchy to bad disks (DVD or HDD) If yours has a DVD inserted try this :
  1. Unplug and wait 10 seconds
  2. plug it back in and wait 1 minute. DO NOT PRESS ANY BUTTONS!
  3. With the machine still in the standby state, press eject on the REMOTE. It should eject without trying to read the disk.

Good luck. It worked for me.

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.
