I have had the exact same problem with the buzzing and no power. I have been able to get mine to power up by first unplugging it from the wall and then plugging it back in...sometimes it takes several times of doing this to get it working again...not a fix but at least I can still get some use from it

No power on when connected

Switch mode power supply is very difficult to troubleshoot even for an expert technician. All SMPS operate at high frequency. If you have a miltimeter that can detect frequency, You can set it to that, then get the red prob close to the switching transformer, you don't even have to touch it with the probe, and you will get a reading in thousands of hertz. If its working. A guide to fixing it is way too complicated.

Ilo DVD player/recorder

> jfthr - Tv convertor boxes transfer digital signals into ANALOG. So when it goes to the dvd recorder it IS ANALOG. I have my antenna hooked to my convertor box, the converter hooked up to the ILO (A/V connections) then, the output on the ILO to the input of my analog tv. (Video selection on my tv). It works great to watch tv and/or record. I switch to the "DVD SOURCE" to watch dvds. Maybe you have the conv box hooked to the tv then the outs on the tv to the dvd. That would explain why you can get a picture but not watch dvd? The ILO has to go between the box and the tv in order to watch dvd.

Mr ilo dvd R04 recorder is locked at the hello screen!!!!

The unit is not finishing the start up diagnostic. This could be forseveral reasons. The most common problem with the Ilo04 is power supply. On the power supply board check the two big capacitors to see if they are swollen or leaking. If so then change them and try that.

Customer Support ILO DVDR05 Recorder

I got my dvd recorder at wal mart. I have used it for a few months but never recorded with it. A friend hooked it up a second time as I got another tv. The manual got misplaced, and I can't find it anywhere. So I wanted to record this tv special, and couldn't get it to record. I contacted wal mart to try to get a phone # to contact the manufacturer to send me another manual. Talk about a run around. I was told that sansui made it, then orion, then cyberhome, then liteon, and also that it was a wal mart brand product. Everyone passed the buck. I contacted ilo tv, hoping they would get me in touch with the dvd recorder/player dept., they gave me ilo service, and ilo help. Nothing, I got nothing from either site. One site I talked to said the company was raided by the government and was now defunct. That is why you can not reach them. When I tried cyberhome, I got to their site, but nothing on my recorder, just sales on different machines. From all the negativity I have heard and read about concerning this product, it is no wonder you can't reach them. And it says alot about wal mart, they won't stand behind their products and they too are just out to make a buck, to heck with the customer, just give me your money, as if they don't have enough of a monoply and billions of dollars already. So I suggest you save your money and get a name brand recorder and throw your ilo products in the trash where they belong. If you haven't experienced problems yet, you will. We all learned a lesson in trying to save a buck, don't count on wal mart, think before you give them your money, and buy name brand products, you might think they are more expensive but at least you know they will be around to stand behind their products.
