Re: dvd player wont turn on

One of the previous posts is correct. There was a problem with Electolytic capacitors about 4-5 years ago, which is suppose to be fix now. Many companies tried to get in the business, but did not have the proper formula for them. This left the caps unstable. The caps could last for a week or for years before failing. This affected a lot of electronics from the high priced models to the cheaper. My computer at work (a Dell) and at home had the same problem. There is not a way to tell if a cap is from a bad lot, although there probably a list somewhere. When I'm fixing one I replace all the caps that are from the same manufacturer and same value as the blown one.

One day at work I saw a CyberHome 300 in the recycle bin (someone probably brought it in to fix it and failed). I pulled it out and of course it would not power up. Knowing about the cap problem, I opened it up and sure enough 2 caps were "pillowed" on the top. When a electrolytic blows it may vent out the top creating a noticeable bulge on the top. Replacing the two caps, the unit works great. If you'd like to know more email me at

Re: dvd player wont turn on

I fixed mine, open the unit look for bad caps, they look like soft drink cans. Usually the tops of the bad ones are pushed up. Just heat up the solder connection with a solder iron pulling up on the cap to remove it.
I found a 1000 uf 10v cap was bad. It's best to replace
them with one of a little higher voltage rating, I installed
one rated at 16v (16 volts).
You should be able to find these at radio shack.

Just stopped working, no power, wont turn on

if your not a technician dont try to open your player, most of fuse now is the holder near where the ac cord is soldered, if the fuse is busted most of the problem is the power regulator.

Wont turn off

Acually there is a setting by which you can activate " Auto Power Off" in your DVD player. You can make that setting and it will be automatically off after DVD finishes.

No power to dvd-vcr player

check the circuit breaker. plug something into the outlet that you know works and see if it turns on.
dont think that there is a fuse inside. If the cables seems good ( ohm it out) then the unit might be shot. sorry...

Wont even turn on

All things being equal a possible cause is a faulty power supply or bad connection at the power jack. A volt meter will tell you if the power supply is faulty. If the jack in the player is bad/ poor solder connection you might be able to fix it by re-flowing the solder. If it's new doesn't it have a warranty?
