Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

2 Answers

Archos 605 (160gb) Plugged dvr into 6 volt dc auto power supply, oops it takes 5 volt. Only had it plugged in for about 10 - 15 min. When I removed from dvr cradle the charging light stayed on, although it dimmed. I let it play out until it shut down, about 2 hrs. Now when I put it back in the dvr or use the usb cord it shows charguing status but even after many hours it does not show full charge (charging light does not start to blink indicating full charge. Now it will not power on. I've done a reset, nothing. It is now dead as the old door nail. HELP, I really need to get this thing up and running. THANKS, Bill

Hi

Check for an internal burned component such as a capacitor,also check for the diodes in the power supply circuit.

    If your Archos DVD Players is also heating up then the capacitors inside are burned and need to buy new electrolytic capacitors of same rating and replace them but it is recommended to get it done by a technician.



    Please revert for any clarifications.



    Thanks

Pioneer DVR-220 will not power up. Any suggestions.


First check the in line fuse...it sits right behind the electric plug on the chase..You have to remove the screws to open the case to check this....If the fuse is okay, you will have to replace these two capacitors, 10 volt, 3300uf, and 10 volt 1000uf...they are located on the same board that houses the fuse...the two location are c23 and c19 on the power board...

I unplugged it and now it wont turn on after I plugged it back in to the wall outlet


The exact same thing happened to mine several days ago. I opened mine up, noted that two of the capacitors on the power supply are a bit puffed up, and tested the power supply's 12V and 5V outputs. The 12 Volt output is fine, but the 5 Volt output is only putting out 2 Volts. In short, all of the capacitors on the power supply are made by the same company (Jenpo) and apparently these capacitors were made using the stolen but incomplete formula for manufacturing capacitors much more cheaply. That "capacitor scandal" has cost electronics manufacturers millions. In any event, this would explain why Walmart blew out these Cyberhome CH-DVD 300 players for such a cheap price. Obviously all of the capacitors on the power supply will eventually fail. I have already experienced similar capacitor related problems with a few computer motherboards and other electronics equipment which I bought in the early to mid 2000's. I am contacting Cyberhome to see if they will send me a replacement power supply to go in my CH-DVD 300.

Hi All,

This is a power supply problem.... the MR2920 stanby IC miss behaved, it power off and fail to power back on.

Solution, get pioneer power supply replacement or take the dvd recorder to your local electronic service repair to take a look at the power supply circuit.

Unit wont stay powered up


Check for overheating. Place the unit in a large plastic bag and place it in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Don't allow condensation to appear on the unit before powering it up, the heat will evaporate any potential condensation. Put moisture absorber or rice in a paper bag in the plastic bag for safety to absorb any moisture. Then power up. If still inoperative check for DC or AC voltage on speaker connectors. If one side is different, or if DC appears on the outputs, audio output may be shorted. See if plugging in headphones stops the problem, some units disable the audio outputs with headphones plugged in.

Samsung l300a dvd player - no video, only audio


Try to reset the player. Remove the DC power supply. Remove the battery. Leave it for 30 mins. Power on using the DC power supply without the battery.

NO-DISK ERROR


I have the same problem after abt 4 months. I found that If it get hot It works. It looks like some broken electrolytical capacitor, but unsure. It worked in this way about next 6 months. But now stops. I've replaced all electrolytical capacitors in power supply (cost abt 100 CZK = 5 USD) and now it works in the same way as after 4 months, it works only if it is hot. In my opinion there is still some cappacitor that must be replaced somewhere in the control board, but I dont now where. Next step I'd like to do is to buy freeze spray and try to find where is the rest of the problem. It should not be so hard to find it. I dont know if it is outside the power supply. I am also thinking about following mod. Remove the original power supply and use ordinary PC ATX power supply. It looks like it has the same singals, so it should work. In my opinion, theese problems are caused by the power supply. benghi@inmail.cz
