Power short/ bad fuse?

A couple of days ago I turned on my dvd player, and all that happened was that my power light flickered a light red glow, and delivered no more of the good sound I was used too. I have owned the player for over a year and a half. I am hoping to get some instruction on fixing the problem. Could it be a blown fuse? Again I hit the power button which on standby is a constant red light. The constant red light flickers and I hear a low humming sound. I cannot turn the power off or do anything at that point. And the display does not light up or anything. Any assistance would be appreciated. Maybe point me towards a site with diagrams. Thanks a lot. Jedac

    I have the same exact problem, again, after a year and a half. Fuse is fine, there is no apparent physical damage on any of the boards as far as I can see.



    The red power light just kind of blinks at about half intensity.

I had the very same problem. The dreaded blinking power light. I also dabble in electronics. I found that all that was wrong with mine was one bad cap. There are two 1000uF(microfarrid) 16V(volt) capacitors in the mid section of the power board, right next to each other. One was bulging on the top. They have an "X" on top. I replaced it with a 1000uF 35V capacitor from Radioshack. They did not have a 16 volt. (Never go down to a lower voltage) The capacitor I got was larger than the old one but I gently moved over the parts around it and got in there. After replacing this one capacitor, which I got for $1.72 tax and all, I plugged it up and no more problems! It works great! I hope this helps someone else.

Not a fuse, atleast in powersupply. Fuses take all power away. If you have red lights then you have power going to unit just not startup power. This could be a short in powersupply. Could be a capacitor,or resistor, or diode. Just would have to look and check everything if you know how.

With no stand by light, you are not getting power.Unplug TV and check fuse on power supply. You will need a meter to look for shorted components and possibly leaky/bulged capacitors that are killing your power supply. flickering could be part of the bad power supply or possibly a problem with YSustain area of your TV

Red light is barley on


The CyberHome CH 300 is a good, inexpensive DVD player with a power supply board prone to fail, because of a few weak components, especially if left turned on and not used.
Usually, if the power supply fails, the red light will not illuminate when plugged in, and of course not turn green when turned on.

If you have this specific problem, I can repair the power supply for $20.00. Contact me at FrancisH49@hotmail.com to arrange shipping and return of the repaired board.
