The DVD recorder does not display anything. The fuse seems to be OK. There appears to be no power out put from the power circuit board. Identical problem with another DVD recorder which was purchased by another famiy member around the same time

Re: No power on when connected
Switch mode power supply is very difficult to troubleshoot even for an expert technician. All SMPS operate at high frequency. If you have a miltimeter that can detect frequency, You can set it to that, then get the red prob close to the switching transformer, you don't even have to touch it with the probe, and you will get a reading in thousands of hertz. If its working. A guide to fixing it is way too complicated.

I have Sony camera recorder CCD-TRV228E PAl Hi8..... t is working OK,but i cant see anything on the display... Somebody told me it was something like ICT orr TCI4 chip.... Can anybody tell me something about this probllem..??
Hook up the player with RGB (Red-Green-Blue or component) cables and try the picture. If everything works OK, then go to the menu and turn on the HDMI output and set the resolution (if needed). Not every HDMI unit works with every HDMI TV. You may also have a bad HDMI cable. On a DVD recorder, you may have your HDMI cable connected to HDMI IN. You must use HDMI out.
Sounds like my woman. The thing is looking for a signal. Hook the TV or stereo receiver up to it or put a DVD in the tray. Some DVD players take a bit to power on so you might just be an impatient lot. Take the thing back to the shop and exchange for a different brand like Sony or Samsung which power up quicker and are more user friendly.
Without seeing the actual unit, I would guess that the power supply has failed. These unit have what are called "switch mode" supplies that rely on circuits that oscillate. If a capacitor goes bad, the unit won't oscillate properly, thus no power. These are difficult to track, but are not usually expensive to repair. I would suggest a trip to a service center for a detailed repair estimate. Report the results here.
Change the Scart setting (in the setup menu) from the default setting (RGB) to the other available setting (CVSC?).
I have a problem with my box restting the clock on a random basis, making it impossible to set a timer to record anything - let us know if you get the same problem via this site!
The problem is likely that you are using 8x/2x media. Though the booklet does not say it, the burner does not support anything above 4x for DVD-R and 1x for DVD-RW. Calling their tech support can (possibly) get an update for this problem. Otherwise, the burner cannot use anything but outdated media.
