Hi,

Often, power surge when the unit is off will not cause major hardware breakdown. Components often hit are fuses, VDRs (voltage dependent resistors) and/or fusible links/resistors. Simple enough to replace/repair.

Should you venture a DIY, pls be reminded of safety precautions when working with electrical devices. Of course this would also require a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. Access to a service manual or at least a schematic diagram with voltage measurements would make the diagnosis a lot easier. Should you be uncomfortable going this route, perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Toshiba DR430KU dvd recorder is not recording. I hit the record button, and the light comes on, saying that it is recording, but nothing gets recorded.


Hello

Secure the audio/video connection cables that attach the source device you are trying to record from. Try this step if you do not see a picture when trying to record from a source device onto the Device. After unplugging the cable and checking for any damage, plug the cables back and attempt to record the content to see if this resolved the problem.

Secure the power cable that attaches the device to an electrical source if the unit will not power on or if it intermittently loses power. If you think a malfunctioning surge protector may be at fault, you can 'bypass' the surge protector by plugging the device into an electrical outlet. Replace any surge protectors that appear to be malfunctioning and have an electrician examine any outlets that appear to be "dead."

Insert the disc that you would like to record

Press the "Edit Menu" button on the remote control while playing the disc or while playback is stopped.

Use the up and down arrows to select "DVD-Video Finalizing" in the on-screen menu, then press "Enter."

Under "Menu Create" select "None," then under "After play final title" select "Stop." Select "Next" to move to the next screen.

Select "Writing" in the lower right of the screen.

Select "Yes" or "No" to tell the machine if you want it to power down when finalizing is complete. Finalizing will then begin and a progress bar will appear.

Contact your electronics dealer or the Toshiba service department if the disc still does not finalize.

Unit won't power on


Go ahead and turn off the computer and disconect all the peripheral devices along with the disk in the cd dvd drive. Do a power drain and then restart the computer after 1 to 2 minutes. Hope it will work.

Wont power up, after we had a power surge. It was connected to power strip surge protector, but has not been able to power up since. can it be a fuse problem, or more? magnavox dvd recorder mwr10d6


Apower surge can travel quicker than a surge protector can activate. And a replacement fuse may not fix your DVD. On one occasion I did replace a fuse in one of these after a power surge and the DVD/VCR did comeback to life. You may try...but the odds are against you and you will have to purchase a new one!

Blinking standby light, dead dvd player


Hello illeanaceres,

I'm sorry to hear about the bad news, I had something similar happen to me around a month ago.

Honestly there is not much you can do if it is damaged due to a power surge. Resetting it would be the normal procedure.

Surge protectors only protect equipment up to a certain amount of joules. Basically if the lightning is powerful enough it can damage electronics with that initial surge. You should replace your surge protectors every few years if it is 2-3 years old then it may not be as effective.

Post back if you have anymore questions or comments. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Continous flashing power light


Sometimes (at least in my case) 2 of these caps will be bad.
1000uf 16v & 470uf 16v.

I have replaced with original values, but these caps are getting awfully hot...

If/when I need to preform repair again I will probably use a greater value for the caps. (higher rating)

Unit WILL NOT Turn ON


Although power cord is permanently attached, connections inside machine have broken off (from personal experience)from moving or jiggling. Unplug machine then check and see. That is, unless you are getting an "ON" red or green light when your machine ON. A question, did you have a power outage? In case you had one,and power is restore, the voltage surge can fry almost any electrical components including computer, refrigerator, freezer etc. Solution? ...a good surge protector.
