SOURCE: DVD VCR combo has no power
I found out what the issue was with my Samsung DVD-V5500. It was the rectifier diode on the 15V tap of the high frequency transformer. This is the same issue that someone else with a later model V5600 had talked about. The diode had shorted and behaved like a piece of wire.
Seems to be a bit of weak point in the power supply. The issue can be diagnosed by using a multimeter to measure the resistance between the diode cathode and ground. If the meter is measuring 1 Ohm between the cathode and ground, your diode needs replacing. I just replaced it with a UF4003 diode from Jaycar, which is basically an Ultra Fast 200V 1A diode suitable for switching the high frequency (20-30kHz) output from the transformer.
The diode is located at the rear right hand corner of the board on the output of the power supply section. A picture below shows the new diode between orientated east-west between the large capacitors. The original diode that failed was an SHG2D SHS.

On the remote, clicked a botton on the bottom. Don't have it with me so can't remember which one. Will look and post answer. Thanks

I recommend to go for DVD-375A as it is newer and can play MPEG4 · DivX · JPEG also. Newer models are likely to have more support from manufacturer. The other model (DVD-V9700) may cost less but has less functions and is discontinued (according to cnet). If you buy the newer model then you might be able to use it longer as new products come out meaning to be future safe.
