Philips DVD 963 SA - power supply crash?

My DVD Player doesn´t work. It is like the power connector would be unplugged. Absolutely no power from one day to the next!

My Idea: It is a malfunktion of the power supply unit. Anyone here, who knows what exactly I can do to make it work again? Any special capacitor I have to change or so? Did anybody repair that before?

Best wishes,

Well the fact is it's near impossible to tell you exactly what part is faulty without having it in hand to test and look at.

Second, DVD players are cheap these days and are typically not meant to be serviced. You would also need to be extremely good at soldering as to not mess the main board more than it is.

Thank you for stopping by Fixya, Post back if you need more info.

I have a DVP642/37 player and after a power outage, the only thing that it will do is flash a red light on the standby button. None of the other buttons work. When I select the DVD player via TV remote,...

just unplug the DVD player from AC wall power socket, and lst it be in that state for at least 10 minutes and the replug and see whether it helps you. If not, the power supply inverter board of your DVD player is faulty. some fault are repairable, and some others are not. Anyway, it will be best to replace this board as card basis, rather than get it repair. OK.

LG V181 DVD player/vcr combo doesn´t read de DVD´s

You need to go inside and clean the lens yourself with Servisol video 40. You might need to wipe it with a cotton bud etc. Allow it to dry before checking. Repeat it several times if it doesn't clear up first time.
PS check the lens for damage with a magnifiying glass! First!!

How do I get my house dvd tray open it stuck and not dvd or cd is in it.

First attempt is to turn off the DVD Player, unplug the DVD player power cord from the electric supply, wait about 5 minutes, plug back the power cord, turn on the DVD player, press the open/close button.

If this does not work, the DVD player cover will have to be removed and the tray manually operated to determine the cause for it not being opened electronically. This might require the services of a technician.

Dvdr philips 3305 blocked

Unplug your player from the power supply (do not just set it to standby). Leave the player for a few minutes. Plug your player back into the power supply and switch on the machine. This should unblock it.

Philips dvd player not working

Im sorry to tell ya that you did all the things I would have suggested, so it sounds like a system control problem or a power supply problem, and if its a good machine then maybe its worth you having a service person look at it?? Most dvd units are not worth it these days, unless there combos or recorders.. Sorry couldnt be of more help.
