Re: Sansui SAN0901 DVD Recorder - Power Problem

Mine did that too, twice. The second time I unplugged it from the power supply, plugged it back in and the stand by light did not come on anymore. I guess I have to replace both the power supply and the capacitor?

Re: Sansui SAN0901 DVD Recorder - Power Problem

Hi Pandjoy,
I have been struggling with the same problem and almost rebuilt the power supply before finding the solution. In my case it was a faulty capacitor-C4, next to the diode D4. Replacing C4 and the machine performed as new. I hope this helps. Cheers

LG DVD Recorder- Clock settings Model RH277H

The clock settings will only be retained if you power down the unit via the On/Off button on the remote or on the unit i.e. put the unit into standby mode. If you switch off mains power the clock settings are lost as there is no backup battery in the unit. Power consumption on standby is negligible.

Try this: Unplug the recorder from power source for about 5 minutes and then reconnect. It will ask you to go through the Easy Setup first. Once you do this, you can set up the command mode.

turn the power on. to get rid of the red light you need to press the timer/rec button on the remote until it turns off. the red light means it is programed to record.
