Question about Pioneer DVR-220 DVD Recorder
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.
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.

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

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.
