Power switches off for no apparent reason

The power switches itself off. This used to happen infrequently, but now it happens right after I turn it on

    I have the same problem, one night I put a dvd in the player and the power just switched off. Even the red ring went dead, no power to the unit at all. I unplugged it, plugged it back in and it seemed to be fine and have power, tried to load the dvd again and bang dead again?

    I have the same problem. Opened the cabinet and tried to find the cause. No indication found; could it be in the software?
    Does anyone know some work-around (bridging some part, maybe) to get the player working again?

    Same problem. After a reset (taking the power cord out) it seemed to be working. Next day: same problem. It played a (music) CD and when starting the next CD... just turned itself off for no apparent reason.

    Unit powers off for no apparent reason.
    - Usually the symptoms are as listed below, but on rare occasions the unit will appear to be working fine and will simply power off while playing a DVD/CD disc.
    - Press power button, red (standby) turns green for a few seconds with "P-ON" displayed, then powers off.
    - Press tray open/close button, unit powers on (and stays on) and tray opens; press button again, the tray closes and the unit powers off (same result whether DVD/CD disc is loaded or not).
    - Press tray open/close button, unit powers on (and stays on) and tray opens; load DVD/CD disc and press play button, the tray closes and the unit powers off.

Fixed it!!!

After I've spend quite some time wasting my time trying to find a solution on these pages, below an actual SOLUTION!!! (after a visit to one of my electronic "boff" buddies:

There's a 15V Zener Diode in the player (D1048 on the board) just next to the power supply (in the "COLD") area of the bottom circuit board.

Replace this with any 15V rated diode, and viola!!! Just keep the wattage right. If you don't know how to use a multimeter, tough.

Should cost you around R0.35 (South African)....too little in US Dollars to even mention (exchange rate's 1:8), so maybe 2c?

Problem is that this diode loses it's "filtering" capabilities after a while, not giving enough power through to the spinning motor.

"No Spin" = "no Disk read = "Power Down".

That's plain English enough I

PS: If you don't have a solution. please don't post "mine's buggered as well" - it's not helping anyone, *******.

    Over a year ago you were post a solution to fix a power supply problem in a Denon DVD-1710 device! Are you sure to use a zener with 15V rating? Do you know something about the zener signed D1017? Could it be the same 15V type?

    Thanks a lot!

2006 HHR LT remote start and power steering not working

I recently saw on the news that some models were being recalled for a faulty ignition switch. (Where the key goes.) It happens for no apparent reason and kills the engine and locks the steering wheel. They said only 1 accident has occurred but imagine it happening at 60 miles per hour. You should call and see if your model is one of the bad ones.

LCD tv switching itself off


1. IF sound main fuse/s are good.
2. If no power or standby check main fuse, standby power supply and any signsof damage you can see---burnt parts etc.
3. almost all these sets the troubleshooting involves checking voltages on the main power board to narrow down theproblem.
4. Be safe and if you do not know what you are doing don't open the set.

Answers to issues:

1. RE:fuses---if a blown fuse is found get a good replacement(not the genericones like Radio Shack). Many fuses are special even aside from amperage--Don'tput a higher rated amperage fuse in the set for any reason.

2. RE: power supply in set: if total dead aside from main fuse the set uses astandby power supply that runs 7/24 and a main supply (some are combined andsome not.

Here aside from checking fuses you want to examine all the filter caps on thepower/standby to see if any are puffed up or buldged up in some fashion--Iattach a photo of a good one---top should be silver metal and PERFECTLY flatand have no brown material coming out on top or bottom.

What happens in the standby area is they use caps with too low a voltage rating(saves money) which causes them to fail in a year or two---the standby runs7/24 and the heat dries out the caps and they fail.

3. Trouble shooting consists of the above and then at some point you have tobuy and try a board to see if it fixes it or not.

4. Safety first--no TV set is worth getting injured or even killed over.4_10_2012_2_12_56_am.jpg
Look for puffed up caps like these in the power supply board.

All this info is just someplace to start and may or may not resolve the problem--it is where to begin.

HP Pavilion a6602f suddenly stopped working for no apparent reason.

Hello there, I am the Expert that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Debdeb_64.

The power supply could be ok, this little green light that you see on the rear of the tower case is likely to be the Ethernet/Network connection.

Possible reasons for failure are as follows:
It could be a loose connection at the 24Pin or Processor 4Pin power connector.
A damaged power supply, is possible.
A faulty power on switch.
A dead mainboard.
A loose connection.

I have published a few guides that should help you in this regard, they are entitled:
How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!
How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
and most importantly My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Do contact a computer technician to test components if need be.

Take care!

The headlights on my chrysler 300m will not turn off no matter what I have tried.

The same thing happened to me. I found the solution quite by accident. Apparently I must have reached over the steering wheel for some reason. On the top of the steering column is the switch for the flashers. I can't remember if there is another switch in that area or it was the flasher switch itself, but I must have turned it on by accident and it was keeping my headlights & taillights on. Hopr this helps

My 2006 Ford Focus sometimes won't turn over. Had the battery and starter replaced and same problem. Happens about once a week. Hot or cold doesn't seem to matter. Just out of the blue it won't turn over....

Try moving the gear selector to neutral . If it starts then the transmission range switch (park neutral position switch ) That is if i'am under standing you correctly . When turning the key to the start position nothing happens ?

Disconnecting unexpectedly!

Hello! My recommendation would be to check if the Drive is over heating. Excessive heat could cause the disconnection either for drive protection or because solder points lose strenght. Turn it on, use it a while, right when it disconnects check if its hot. Or try to dissipate better the heat and see if it lasts longer
