Re: panasonic dvd s32 not responding
On various panasonic dvd recorders, the voltage regulator in the power supply overheats and shuts down the unit. panasonic seems to know about this fault as they started fitting larger heatsinks to compensate for this. this is a very common fault.

The trouble is that vcr's are quickly becoming outdated and losing against the digital market. the only thing I can suggest is go to www.panasonic.com and contact customer support and the technical department to see if they can offer a resolution to the problem.
Are you sure that you don't mean a DVD-S32? if you do, that is a Panasonic DVD player. A DVB-S32 is a digital satellite receiver box, but it is a different brand.
In any event, the 'dead' condition points to one common denominator; the power supply has one or more short-circuit components. I doubt it would just be a simple blown fuse; it could be something far more serious, which may have affected the surface-mounted parts on the copper side of the board in this area.
The difference between taking this to a service centre to be repaired and the retail price of a brand new player could be somewhat significant, since new players are relatively cheaper to buy now.
If you really want this one fixed by a workshop. get a quote first on the likely cost(s) involved to restore it to full operation. Then you can make a decision whether or not to go further with it, or simply buy a new player.
Only consider replacing the whole player if you discover it is not economical to repair your existing model.
I have a COBY DVD player TF-DVD7005 that hadn't been used in a while. When I charged the battery and the light went from red to green, nothing happens when I push play and the DVD doesn't spin. Could the battery be dead despite the green light and where would I get a new one?
