Replace D5103 and D5105 ( Under Heatsink! ). As a precaution replace C5103 and check R6108 and R5109. Any electrolytic capacitors with domed tops should be replaced. This fix also cured machine that flashed the DVD and HDD lamps but had no other functions.

OK changing the caps only resulted in proper filtering and voltage smoothing and did very little to solve your problem. Now what swollen caps are a sign of is an over voltage condition. what I would suggest because you may have a bad voltage regulator, is that you have to get a schematic and measure the voltage levels on the power supply to determine if they are correct or not. This will tell you if the regulator is bad or not. You do have a power supply problem you just have to determine where in the power supply. This can be done with the schematic and a voltmeter.

DVD Drawer will not Open

Unplug it and plug it back in. However, that may not fix it. What goes back to AV2 - the TV source? When the TV does not receive a signal it will display AV2. The problem is in the Toshiba DVD / VCR combo. You need electronic spray (contact) to spray the inside of the buttons just to start, this requires dis-assembly. Unplug the unit ad remove the cover, and possibly the faceplate to spray these buttons. Now if the problem is also caused from the remote then there could be a problem in a transistor or chip. Clean the mother board with a duster, but there might not be a fix action for the problem.

I will list herefor you the best codes for the more popular models of remotes and also theinstructions for addressing the remote to the TV. The best codes for the SonyDVD/VCR are 817, 778, 818, 768,005 and 002. I hope you find these codes andinstructions useful but if you do not I will also list here for you theinstructions for running a power scan which can sometimes find the code foryou.

Can't get the door open to put in a DVD. Player says no disc but the door won't open with remote or manually.

If you look at the front panel of your CD player you will notice a very small hole. Using a VERY straight Paper Clip push in about 1/2 inch in this hole then pull the drawer out.

Direct receiver is not responding to remote

if you go to:

it has different remote codes. you would have to select "satellite setop box" also you need the model # of the receiver which can be found (normally) behind a door on the front panel of the receiver on a sticker (where the access card and reset button are) if its not a directv receiver, (hughes, etc) then it would probably be on the back of the receiver you would see a sticker with the model # of this receiver.

the first code should be 00001 follow the instructions on how to program on that website.
