Samsung DVD/VCR Recorder

I had the power go off last weekend and when it cam back on the player just wouldn't work, I checked and found power being received as the optic cable outlet behind the unit had the light on but there wasn't anything else happening.

If you could help me find the problem and a solution to the issue, it would be most appreceative.

Thank You,
Mario

    I had the same problem ie power to the unit but nothing happening.

    This was while under warranty, it was collected and returned OK, the note said that they had fitted a 0402-001194 which I believe is a diode. A few months after warranty finnished the same happened again, does anyone know where I can obtain one of these diodes.

    Exactly the same No Power problem. I went on vacations, did my bit for the environment, by turning off power (pulled plug out). On return, dead as a dodo. I'll try and find a repair shop, taking the info. about the diode as a likely cause. Many thanks.- Going Green sure costs money...

Unit dead.
Local repair shop said it's un-econimical to repair.
Admitted they had no service manual.
Said they could 'have a look' but likely repair cost would be over $300. Charged me $50 for quote. Useless Gits.

My opinion & findings.
Power supply sensative to spikes.
I Suggest a power filter in-line with unit.

Disconnected all sub-boards from main.
Hiccuping PSU (5v wobbles between 2&3V).
Replace switchmode IC & feedback IC. No change.
Eventualy identified short-cct diode as listed below.

0402-001194 Diode is a Gen-purpose 200V 2A diode. I used a 1n4007 (1A), so I expect to have to replace it in future. It's "D1S35" located very close to right rear corner of main board, part of 15V and 12V rails. Next time I'll use a 'faster', higher rated diode.
I also had no clock progression. Time could be set but would not advance. Been like that for ages - I thought it was a user clock-setting error. Identified Dead 32.768 khz crystal (XT601).

Hired manual $10 +postage
Non-faulty parts + postage $40
1 diode $1

Satisfaction, plenty.

    gladrags and to all others that contributed to the conversation. Your solution with replacing that diode worked perfectly! The diode was 25 cents ($4 shipping) and replaced that D1S35 and the vcr dvd combo powers up and works perfect now! My mom is so happy now thanks!!

    I have the same crappy unit and took John's advice. £20 for a solder kit from maplin, £2 for a diode off ebay. No thanks to samsung (USELESS). Also replaced the fuse (located near where the main power cable joins the circuit board). Working fine now.

I had the DVD portion of the DVD/VCR combo simply stop dead and the dvd tray would not eject. After talking to Samsung, this is what worked.

  1. Turn the power off to the VCR/DVD player (pull the plug out.
  2. While the VCR/DVD play is off, press the power button for 30 seconds. They said this was draining power (very strange) and would reset the system
  3. When I plugged the player back in and turned on the power, it was functioning perfectly. The tray opened and all was working.

Hi, Gladrags here again.
The $1 diode blew . I've used a BYX71-600 this time. Using a $20 diode is overkill I know, but that's what was sitting around. The 'front' of the diode package faces the rear of the DVD unit (for those without a ref chart).
