DVR-220-S Capacitor C19

Recorder will not power on. I opened the cover, the fuse is ok. the capacitor
#C19 seems to have burst, there is a brown spot on the top cover over this
capacitor. Would this cause the recorder not to power on? if so do you know where I can get the capacitor? I haven't unscrewed the circuit
board but am assuming it must be soldered into place, would this be
correct? If so what type of solder would I use? If you can help it will
certainly be appreciated since there are no repair services available within
100 miles. Also, I could probably buy anew one for less the cost of repair.

Thank you

    I have a Pioneer DVR-220-S C17, C19 and C23 all have the end blown out and will not power up. Looking for shematic.

  • clower2003 Feb 13, 2008

    my pioneer also wont power up c23 c17 c19 c24 all look to be blown (swelled and leak) went to www.mouser.com they sell capacitors think i payed 8 to 12 dollars for 2 of each. c17 is on back order still waiting for it. does anyone have the schematic they could email me. paying for a schematic is ridiculous. or a bit-torrent page where i can find it. will let you know if this solves my problem have to wait 4-08 there suppose to receive the 25v 1800uf.

  • juanian Jun 09, 2008

    Yes, I too have the same problem. c17, c19 is bulging, and c23 has brownish gunk on top. My c24 looks ok though.



    I found the location on the Poineer site where they sold the service manual - $27. I didn't see the power supply board for sale there.



    I'll try and get the capacitors at Fry's tomorrow and see if replacing them fixes the problem.



    I have another DVR-220-S, but I haven't opened it up yet (and it hasn't had a power problem -- yet).

    Same problem here -- C17, C19 & C23 are damaged with electrolyte pushing out the top. C24 looks okay but I'm going to replace it while I'm at it. I am ordering capacitors from Digi-Key.
    I am posting the capacitor specifications here to help the poster that said his caps were too destroyed to read.
    C17: 1800uF, 25V
    C19: 3300uF, 10V
    C23: 1000uF, 10V
    C24: 200uF, 10V
    It looks like the set of 4 caps will be about $5 or $6 including First Class USPS shipping.

    After 4 years of use - same problem. The recorder won't power up. The fuse was fine. I did find the brown spot with ant mount-like brownish powder on C23 (1000 uF, 10V), as well as noticed that C19 (3300 uF, 10V) has a bulky top. Upon connection I had an impression that both capacitors are warmer than all others. It could only mean that they leak current causing DC voltage to drop and not power the circuits. I went to www.mouser.com and ordered the two capacitors. Couldn't think of anything else. Hopefully it will fix the problem. Not sure what's causing this problem...poor quality capacitors, or poorly designed circuit.

  • 98z3 Feb 05, 2009

    Here's an update: I replaced C17, C19, C23 and C24. Now the DVR-220 powers up and plays fine.



  • Mike_2032 Apr 01, 2009

    Same problem ,wouldn't power up. I found this site and started reading. Reopened my unit and saw the brownish dust over c23, c17 and c19 are swelled.



    Finding this site has been a real help, I wasn't looking forward to going and finding another recorder that allowed for the 10min intervals.



    Thanks Guys

I just purchased the following capacitors from Mouser.com. I bought 2 of each and with shipping it cost me about $10:

C17: 1800uF, 25V, D 15mm L 20mm - 647-UPW1E182MHD6
C19: 3300uF, 10V, D 12mm L 25mm - 647-UHM1A332MHD
C23: 1000uF, 10V, D 10mm L 17mm - 647-UPW1A102MPD

I could not find a replacement for the C24. My C19 blew and after replacing it the DVR came back to life.

I replaced the c17, c19, and c23 caps, and my DVR-220-s is now powering up properly.  I used Nichicon PW caps to replace the old Elna RJF caps, and the new caps were a perfect fit.  (Cost of 2 sets of caps was under $5 at DigiKey.com with USPS Priority Mail shipping also under $5.)
I did notice that the area around d39 was a darker brown.  Time will tell if any 'permanent' damage occurred.  (Once I extracate my other 220, I'll replace those caps also.)
One other note: My 30w soldering iron was underpowered for the job, but a 45w worked OK.

    I replaced c19 & c23. Now it powers up but goes into standby in 5 seconds. Should I replace c17 as well? Or what can be the problem now?

You can download the Service Manual for this machine for $10.00 from the following site. www.electronicsrepair.net
It includes the schematic for the power supply board.
You can also buy the complete power supply board on line for about $52.00 from www.partstore.com.

This is exactly what appeared to be the problem - capacitors fail. Out of 4 mentioned by another person, I discovered that only 2 failed - C19, 3300 uF 10 V, and C23, 1000 uF 10V.
You can buy them at www.mouser.com. I bought Nichicon Low Impedance Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors:
P/N 647-UPW1A102MPD and P/N 647-UHD1A332MHD

Very inexpensive but you will have to pay about $5 for shipping.

30W pensil solder worked fine for me. You can buy it at Radioshack, they will tell you what else you may need to do a quality job.

Now it powers up without a problem and work just fine.

An update on my experience: I replaced the four capacitors (C17, C19, C23 and C24) and now my DVR-220 powers up and plays fine. The parts were $4.83 including shipping from DigiKey.

I have a DVR-220 with the exact same problem but most of the caps are so bad I can not read their size. Would someone please post the cap size (voltage and mfd) along with part number (C19)?

Any help is appreciated

Posted on Nov 17, 2008

Thank you for the reply. We went to the Pioneer Website
and downloaded the service manual/schematics. We called
them and they said they did not sell the capacitors individually,
we ordered the whole power supply board for about the same
price as quoted in your response. It only took a couple of
days for it to arrive. It is now working.

Bose lifestyle 5. Display is erratic when playing cd or radio.


Change capacitor C19 (33uF 63v) next to the dispaly. This capacitor goes leaky over time, and causes ripple on the display which makes it dim or even dissapear completley. Also worth doing all the capacitors near to C19 while your there just in case.

changing C19 worked for me. Some people even up rate the capacitor to 100v, but 63v id the manufacturers reccomended.

No power at all on my magnavox mwr10D6


Brown outs can damage the power control board of a running product. It's likely that while the other devices that all were affected by the brown out made it through such a condition, your DVR probably did not. The good news is, there is typically a fuse that can be changed which may have blown. If you open the unit up, check the fuse first. If it looks okay, there is a set of capacitors (looks like tiny round cans, usually blue or black) If there is what looks like a weird papery appearance around the can(s), or the top of the cans are bulged or cracked, the capacitor(s) need to be replaced.

Cyberhome dvr1200 wont turn on


dave727,

C14 & C20 are in fact 2200uf @ 10VDC. C15 is 1000uf @ 10VDC. After reading these posts, I took a closer look at the ps board, and sure enough C20 top is slightly ballooned out. We'll be replacing all 3 with 16VDC caps shortly. BTW, the high pitched whine is from the power supply because it's a switching supply and creates some HV.

Thanks for the input!

Apparently there was a problem with some of the capacitors in these models. Your capacitor definitely is popped.

I had the same problem. The fuse was okay, but two capacitors were blown. One was at location C23 and I think the other at C17. I took it to a local electronics shop and they replaced and soldered the new capacitors on for me. It only cost $16.22. They were a 3300 µF and a 1000 µF.

No power on magnavox dvd recorder model CMWR10d6


The capacitor blew. You need to get that replaced. That little capacitor stores that electrice charge to power your unit on and timer programmings etc. Either get that fixed by yourself or call support line.
