Jamo DVR-50 Frozen ?

My Jamo DVR 50 has frozen and will not respond to any command. Reading the other treads on this site, I tried everything from power down, to taking the unit apart and removing the dvd inside. Only when I remove the dvd drive, I can get the unit to work. I then purchased a new dvd drive, but when this is mounted the unit freezes again when the power is turned on. I however managed to rebot the system with the newest software - but it still freezes. Any suggestions ? Thanks in advance ! with a DVD inside. The Unit does not respond to any commands and I have referenced the user manual troubleshooting guide which basically instructs the user to power down the system for 30 seconds with no luck. Any sugestions? Thanks in advance

The DVD Drive in your system has gone bad. My unit did the same thing, so I opened the unit up and just unplugged the DVD drive and now Im able to use the unit as a receiver until I can find a replacement drive. I will perform a new post when or if I can find a bare drive for the unit

Jamo dvr 50 buzzing/crackle from speakers after repair

Guess it would be cheaper to buy the DVR-60 , og DVR-70. I recall having seen good publicity on the dvr-60, but guess it would be hard to get your hands on that one. I have found the dvr-70 at the price of aprox. 200£. If you change the "motherboard", it will probebly brake down again, en just as expencive. I believe the cabinet is overheating do to lack of aircirculation, when you open it, there is no dust to be found at all...

I have the same frozen problem vith Jamo DRV-50.
But I found this: 

Its a swedish site for electronic repearments, Jamo DVR-50 have problems with heat also and capacitors in the power suply unit goes burned. So the instructions are:

1.Simptoms:Various strange error

2.Solution: Replace the capacitors in the power supply, especially C30 470μF/ 10V, C31 2200μF/ 10V and C16 1000μF/ 10V.

My service guy already told me that some electrical parts in the power supply unit are burned, he replace them and succeded to powerOn the unit but still jamo have problems staying powered on and now im going to tell him to replace those capacitors C30, C31 and C16, and i hope this will work.
