Question about Denon DVD-1710 DVD Player
The power switches itself off. This used to happen infrequently, but now it happens right after I turn it on
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 think...lol....
PS: If you don't have a solution. please don't post "mine's buggered as well" - it's not helping anyone, *******.

Check if the
power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.
Check if the
main power has been switched on.
(DVD player's power supply transformer could be burned out)
Screen is "frozen"
or completely black, or Power button does not work
the power off and wait 3 seconds before turning it on again.
Make sure the
TV and VCR (if connected) are set to the correct channel or line.
However the power supply can be faulty,some resistor,capacitor, diode or IC . see the block attached .If you do not have skill for electronic, go to the repair shop.
God bless you
