Re: Power switches off for no apparent reason

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, *******.

Why is my Samsung Smart blu-ray player arbitrarily switching from HDMI1 to the DVD setting?

Your smart player has become psychotic and is in need of some serious help (repair/replacement).

I have a Panasonic Viera TC-P42x5 TV. I had a brief power outage and the TV would not turn back on. no power at all.

I have the same tv. Upon researching how to fix this, I came upon an answer to do a reset. I tried it and it did work! Try doing this: Let's try a hard reset of the TV. To do this, disconnect the set from powericon1.png then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the TV back in, and also make sure the power cord connection to the TV itself is secureicon1.png. Then press power once . Hopefully that will do it.

Sony RDR-HDC100 will not remain operating and turns itself off

follow this step:

No power

  1. Check if the power cord has been properly connected to the power outlet.

  2. 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

  1. Try turning the power off and wait 3 seconds before turning it on again.

  2. 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

Have 2 units both just flash "loading" and will

This happened last night on my new-to-me JVC SR-MV55. Even powering it off for five minutes didn't help. It apparently crashed during dubbing (couldn't create more than 9 chapter codes?). Manual suggested holding down Stop and Power after powering it down. But no matter how long I held Power it wouldn't stop flashing. But I tried Stop/Powwer for a bit, nothing seemed to happen, then maybe 15 seconds later it restarted "WAKE UP'".

Apparent lifelessness!

Hello abdees,

The power supply has failed, could be a bad fuse or the power supply has burned out, which happens offten.
If the fuse is bad and is in a fuse holder it can be replaced, however if it is soldered in then I would advise you to get it replaced by a qualified TV repair person. If the power supply is just burnt out you should think about getting a new DVD player/recorder.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Unit turns itself on in standby mode

This can be a very irritating problem. Happened to me too. The only thing to do is after you turn off the unit with the remote, go to the unit and physically turn off the power to the unit with the manual Power on/off switch on the left side of the unit. Nothing else works.
