Question about Samsung DVD-HR720 DVD Recorder

Power outage - recorder broken?

Hi people,

Last night we had a power outage, after a lamp popped / short circuited. When we got the power back on, the DVD recorder didn't work properly any more. The status is as follows:
- The fan at the back still works, and the display clock is shown. (it does have power). Also, the SCART signal loop from the antenna to the TV does work.
- However, the clock doesn't change, it remains at 18:00. Additionally, the machine doesn't respond to any button (Stand by / On, etc.), nor does it respond to the remote, or the 'reset to factory settings'-button (press >>| for 5 seconds).

Has anybody had the same problem, and if so, what should I do?
I could open it up myself, but I'm not an expert. However, I'd prefer the cheaper solution to the expensive expert ;-)

Thanx for any help in advance!

Power cut last night and cannot get my TV to power up.


First check your circuit breakers. Also,If you are capable, open the TV and check the fuse inside. The power outage and the sudden spike in power might have tripped the breaker or blown the fuse. Good luck!

Monitor blinking after power outage


Check the power supply section first.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, blown fuses, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed SAMSUNG monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Recorded programs in english come out in Spanish


Make sure your TV hasn't been set for SAP (you'll find it in the audio settings menu). Second audio programming is often used to carry alternate languages, and if it's turned on you won't know it until you watch a program where it's being used. There may be a single button labeled SAP on the remote. If so, it's easy to change the TV setting without realizing it.

Same problem as others. Sony KDF-E55A20-while watching TV, screen goes black and sound leaves too! Will come back on in a few seconds...but continues this cycle. The green light stays on.


You really need a tech to check the error codes recorded in the TV to be sure. You could have a bad lamp driver, but I would want to see if any error codes were recorded
