Question about Sylvania Dual Deck DVD/VCR

1 Answer

Power surge causing no power?

We lost power a couple of hours ago for just a few seconds. After the power outage, or power surge whatever you want to call it, we tried to use our Sylvania VCR/DVD player model No. DV220SL8, and it will not turn on. The VCR/DVD player was the only item on the wall of the tv that was not plugged into a power strip. It is the only thing that won't work. This is a new player, in fact I just got it for Christmas of 2007. Could the power outage have fried my new VCR/DVD player?

My Panasonic tc-p50x5 plasma tv will not come on after a power outage. Dose It need a new power supply?


Wait a few days and see. There are some panny's that will not work for a few days when you have a power interruption, and it takes a while for them to come back on. If nada, then check the PS for voltages.

Today my power went out for a split second and came back on I turn my TV back on it makes a high pitched whining noise and the screen wont turn on. Cant add picture but model number is MW30G71.


unplug your tv. let it sit for a good bit. 1/2 hour did your power just go out or did you have a power surge then no power. surges cause the grid to go down for a second too and that causes problems too. surge protectors are good for everything. also are you on cable? if so have the cable company check they're filters into the house may be an issue but check the tv after a half hour unplgged and then plug in and turn on normally? sometimes it needs a reset time period before the fuses inside will reset themselves.

Frigidaire CPEF3081MFC - Clock and timer run fast [gaining approx. 10 mins per hour]. Everything else, including temperature, functions normally.


If the power outage was as a result of a power surge it is likely that
the components were affected in some way, they may need diagnosing and repair or replacement.
There are many reports of electronic devices going wrong after
a power cut...the outages are , seemingly responsible for a lot of damage. If this is the case I would look at whether there is a mechanism for claiming reparatory compensation from the power company you are signed to

Hi Nick,
I would plug in a new start relay. The start relay is on the side of the compressor.
If the new relay still will not start the compressor then the compressor has been damage from the power outage.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is no reset on the phone system, and it's a near certainty that a power surge during the storm "fried" the sensitive circuitry in your phone. The same thing happened to me a couple of years ago and I ended up replacing my phone system. A corded phone in the house at the same time lost its ringer during our storm. To this day it still works fine, but will not ring. While you cannot save your present equipment, it's possible to protect your replacement by installing a phone line surge protector (available at just about any store that sells phones or computers) and a whole house surge protector that you install at the main outside breaker box (you'll need to search the web for that one. Look for a SYCOM surge protector).

After power outage the printer won't power up.


The printer is dead, the surge got thru and fried it. Replace it and the surge-protector.

1) Have you checked the fuse in the mains plug ?

2) There may also be a secondary fuse, inside the monitor (don't as me how to dismantle it, all I know is carefully) on the main cct board near to the power in socket.

We had an power outage and lost power for a few hours everything came back on but the microwave. I checked the outlet and checked the fuse still nothing. Is there anything that can be fixed?


Hello if you have no power at the outlet, you may have saved your microwave. If the outlet is dead go to your house electrical panel and reset the breaker or replace the fuse. if the outlet is live and the microwave still won't power on you will have to choose between repair and replacement. Definitely get an estimate before agreeing to a repair as microwaves are very inexpensive today compared to even a couple of years ago.

I would chech the components on the compressor. Take the cover off the compressor power terminals and inspect the relay for damage.The power outage is not a concern but the power surge could definately be the cause. hope this helps.
