No power; no lights will come on. I was watching a recorded DVD and then all of the sudden it turned off and will not come back on.


The reason the DVD went off was because it was exposed to a high current and the power pack got burnt during the process.

To fix this, you have to get the appropriate screw driver, open up the cover of the player,

You will see the power pack, if it is covered, open it up and if it is not just go ahead and test the capacitors with a meter reader.

You will discover some burnt capacitors.

Disconnect the power pack, get another power pack and replace the old one, and the player will be okay once again.

Take care

I wrote to The corporate office. They contacted my local store and the store replaced my machine with a brand new magnavox even though my machine was 1 year old, Try it. They told us that customer satisfaction was guaranteed. They also told us that the company was out of business.

This may sound overly simple but try disconnecting the power from the unit (i.e. unplug it from the wall), wait a few minutes and plug it back in, kinda like a hard re-boot.
