I have a Emerson DVD/CD player, model no.EWD2204.
Will not turn on when you push the power button. Is there a simple solution to fixing this, or would it be cheaper just to purchase a new DVD/CD player. this one is only about 3 years old. Thanks for any help on this problem.

    The mechanism need to shuttle before power is allowed to turn on. If this is not happening, you can get the symptoms you describe.....accordianman

PROTECTIVE FEATURE


In some cases, the STANDBY indicator may blink slowly, twice per second. In this case, turn off the unit, unplug the power cord, and check the following points.


Make sure the speaker cables are not reversed and connected to the wrong sides (+ and -) on the unit.


Make sure the speaker cables connected to the unit are not shorted. (Check both the unit end and the speaker end.)


Make sure the volume does not exceed the level that the unit is capable of producing.


When using the unit in a rack or other enclosed space, heat may build up inside the unit and cause a fire. When installing the unit, be sure to leave suffi cient space between the top, back and both sides of the unit and walls or other AV components to prevent the internal temperature from rising.


After checking these points, plug in the power cord and use the remote controller to turn on the unit. Turn down the volume before resuming playback. Confirm that there are no problems with the speaker connections and playback performance.


If this symptom recurs, request service at your nearest service center.


In rare instances, the unit may enter standby mode and the STANDBY indicator may blink rapidly, 8 times per second. In this case, unplug the power cord and request service at your nearest service center.

Just hooked up my new Magnavox DV220MW9 DVD Player ? VCR Recorder. I was able to set the time and a vcr timer program but now I can't switch the source. It now comes on as the DVD but neither the remote...


You need to release the timer to access the VCR. Press the Timer Set button on the remote or the Stop/Eject button on the recorder. Then press the VCR button.

Please note: the scheduled recording will not run as programmed unless you press the Timer Set on the remote again. (The timer locks the VCR until the scheduled ON time.) The DVD player is controlled separately and becomes the default unit.

I hope this helps.

Lamp replaced, sequence from Manual (p.49) for 2010+ hrs fails


Apparently, the above posted steps do work, but they are finicky. The manual suggests that you do the aforementioned steps with the remote - I had tried with the remote and when that did not work I tried directly on the controls on the unit itself. Neither had worked - after multiple attempts, hence the posting above. The solution was that the various steps need to be done speedily - when I previously did it I apparently did not press the sequence rapidly enough. Nothing in the manual suggests that this is the case (and in fact I thought I had previously followed the steps in rapid succession on at least one of the many times I had tried, but apparently not quickly enough). I never could get this rapid succession of steps to work with the remote (as the manual said I needed to), but I did ultimately get the rapid succession of steps to work when done directly to the unit itself. The first three steps need to be completed within approximately 1-1.5 seconds, the final push of the volume+ button did require 2 or more seconds before the process was recognized (and complete). Never did have a single FixYa party try to address my issue - perhaps you only really get responses from them when you pay for their monthly service.

LG DVD Recorder- Clock settings Model RH277H


The clock settings will only be retained if you power down the unit via the On/Off button on the remote or on the unit i.e. put the unit into standby mode. If you switch off mains power the clock settings are lost as there is no backup battery in the unit. Power consumption on standby is negligible.

I have a Denon AVR1603, recently I plugged computer in AUX connections at rear (not loud) and it kept tripping out. Eventually it tripped and now the the on/standby light fashes but nothing else happens....


The LED flash indicates that unit goes into protection. Check the power transistors, the 0.22 ohm or 0.47 resistors in the output of the transistors.

DVD & VCR Recorder Model ZV450MW8A


My grandmother had the same problem. Whenever you press "timer set" to set the timer, it automatically turns off the VCR and whenever you turn it back on the VCR is locked and it's stuck on DVD. All you have to do is press "timer set" to unlock the VCR side. Then you may have to press "VCR" to switch it back. Hope this helps.

No. Sound like the Switch mode power supply is or has failed, to repair this would involve replacing capacitor and or some componets, Many repair shops these days have discontinude repairing VCR's becuse most of the time you can replace the entire unit for the cost of repairing it

Dual DVD (Model#DDV9555) does not turn on.


Hi,
you could try checking the plug fuse.
or opening the casing, and seeing if theres an on board fuse located near to the mains power inlet. usually a small glass fuse. 0.5 to 1.5 Amp quick blow type.
Make sure you switch off and unplug before attempting this.
if the fuse blows again, when you switch it back on, unless it,s warranted. Bin It and buy a new One.
