Question about Panasonic Computers & Internet
I experienced the same problem with my Panasonic DVD recorder. My girl friend replaced 2 aluminum electrolytic capacitors - leaded 100uF 250 volts AEC-Q200 on the power supply on the unit. After plugging up unit after a year of no power, it powered up immediately. Plus, it would work for 3 weeks or so before a storm cause a power outage, which cause the unit not to repower up afterword. Does anybody have anymore suggestions.
If it's that delicate, but you still want to keep it, you could try changing-out the mains fuse in the unit for a really, really low amps one.
You might be getting a power-surge as the power goes off, or as it comes back on. A very low fuse, might blow on the surge, which will leave you needing to replace the fuse, but not the capacitors.?
Best of luck.

First, one correction. Panasonic website for parts asks $437 plus tax and shipping for replacement part for PANSONIC SA-HT1500 dvd recorder.
My solution. I opened the box and unplug and plug back cable with black tape going to HDD, and tighten cable near DVD-RAM drive. I closed the unit, connected as before, and whooala, everything is back in normal. Apparently, so connections loose over time.
So, for now, my SA-HT1500 dvd recorder works OK, and I can see all contents on recorded DVDs and DVD-RAMs, and I am able to record from and to DVDs.
I also find out that in the worst scenario, there is flat fee charge for repair in autorized Panasonic repair center. The phone number is 847-468-5543, and it is in Elgin, Illinois. You have to leave message on their answering machine, and they will call you back. There is $130 flat fee for all parts, labor and shipping. Definitely worthy compare to ridiculous price for replacement part on Panasonic website.
