I experienced a power surge recently. Since that

I experienced a power surge recently. Since that time, all I can get on the DVD recorder is "please wait". I've unplugged it several times 5 to 10 minutes. Then when I plugged it back, the message remains. What can I do?

Hi, I have a Maytag Centennial washer. We recently experienced a power surge in our home. The washer does everything it should - except cycle. Could this be the time motor? Thank you! David


depending on your washer model it is most likely in some events of a power surge that the timer knob could be damaged and need of replacement

Following a power failure, the recorder will not power up. What is the likely problem?


Your unit is most likely fried from the surge. Fixable but cheaper to replace.

Magnavox MDR537H/F7 no power


Some surge protectors cut off all power, when they reach the surge protection limit in joules. Power strips have reset buttons to restore power. Try plugging it directly into the electrical wall socket. If it works, then purchase a new surge protector. The DVD recorder may have a internal fuse that has burned open.

I incorrectly entered PAL in video format setting now screen is stuck and says change resol utio n but can not change it need help!!! protron pd-dvr100 dvd recorder


I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing as the Video output settings on the DVD Recorder is set incorrectly. Please perform a power resetting by following the below steps and check the operation.
To perform power resetting, unplug the DVD Recorder from wall outlet for more than 5 minutes and press and hold the Power button for more than 15 seconds. It will discharge power from all circuit and move the Recorder to factory default.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if the issue persists.

My area recently had a power failure. Oddly, during the power failure I could still see a light coming from the Canon MG5220 printer. After power was restored, it was sometime later when I noticed that...


Unfortunately, it sounds like when the power was restored, the printer experienced a surge. If this was not plugged into a surge protector, then it's possible the switch was fried at the point of power restoration. It is important that with units such as printers, monitors, towers (computer), tv's, vcr/dvd players, almost any type of electrical appliance be plugged into a surge protector. However, even if this was true in this case - when a power shortage (outage) is experienced, it is necessary to unplug everything so that when the power is restored, nothing that is plugged in will be affected; as your printer was.
Now, you can have this fixed - either take it to a local computer repair shop; that might be able to fix it, or contact the manufacturer and inquire about sending the unit in for repair - regardless of warranty or not. If it is still under warranty, they may honor it. I am not positive they will for an accidental damage such as this, but it's worth calling them.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

My Panasonic DVD recorder won't turn on after a power out. Another user says that this is common, it may be a burnt diode or a damaged power supply. WOULD TURNING THE POWER STRIP OFF RIGHT AFTER THE POWER...


If the power supply has already suffered the brunt of the surge, it could be an expensive repair, possibly not economical.

Of course, you can submit this recorder to a service centre, and obtain a quote on any repairs/board replacement required, then make a decision afterwards on that basis - yes or no - it's up to you what you do.

Sorry to say the power surge has quite likely destroyed several components in your DVD recorder's PSU beyond economical repair; it would not just be a 'burnt diode'.

However, in the future, if you are worried about likely surges occurring again, you can always switch units off at the power point when you aren't using them (example, overnight when you go to bed or when you go out for more than an hour at a time). This may help prevent expensive damage to other appliances.

Surge protection on your household power (or a surge protected powerboard/strip if that's cheaper and easier to get) is recommended.

Wont power up, after we had a power surge. It was connected to power strip surge protector, but has not been able to power up since. can it be a fuse problem, or more? magnavox dvd recorder mwr10d6


Apower surge can travel quicker than a surge protector can activate. And a replacement fuse may not fix your DVD. On one occasion I did replace a fuse in one of these after a power surge and the DVD/VCR did comeback to life. You may try...but the odds are against you and you will have to purchase a new one!

DENON AVR 2308 no longer works only after 3 weeks of purchase!!!


You need to get more details. What component has failed that makes them believe that a surge caused the problem. There is usually a thermal fuse inside of the main power transformer that CAN be effected by power surges. WIthout more details, I really can't rpovide any ammunition for your claim. Please request exact details from the servicer.

Thanks,
Dan

Hi, After a recent severe lightenung storm my Samsung DVD player is not working. When turned on it read CD/DVD Protection and shuts off. Will not open/close or stay on. Tina


Hello.. Since the problem ocurred after a lightning storm then there is a good chance that your dvd player experienced a power surge from the power line and may be seriously damaged. Try unplugging the unit fromn the wall plug and let it staythat way for 10-20 minutes then plug it in again.. if it continues to malfunction then it is probably junk.. The power down/power up reset sometimes clears malfunctions like this but not always... and especially not if a component inside it is damaged.. Good Luck..
