Question about Pioneer DVR-225 DVD Recorder
My power supply has burned out on my Pioneer DVR-225. I've taken off the cover to look at the power supply board. It looks like one of the capacitors popped. The fuse is still in tact. I'm trying to find a schematic for the power supply (VWR 1378) so that I can purchase the correct part? Is there any way that I can verify that it is the capacitor that failed? I can't smell anything on it...but it is bulged on the top and there is a slight brown spot on the top as well (near the seam)
Apparently there was a problem with some of the capacitors in these models. Your capacitor definitely is popped.
I had the same problem. The fuse was okay, but two capacitors were blown. One was at location C23 and I think the other at C17. I took it to a local electronics shop and they replaced and soldered the new capacitors on for me. It only cost $16.22. They were a 3300 µF and a 1000 µF.

I also had the same problem. I am no electrician, so i took mine into Best Buy where i had extended service on it. The power supply is on "back order" and wont be here for 3 months. Basically, they're telling me, they cant or wont fix it. I'll be getting a new recorder, but I've been happy with this one.
