Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder
This unit was working fine until recently the unit loses power during timer recording. At first I would simply unplug it and plug it back in and it would work now the unit does not work. What is going on?
Just wanted to say thanks. My son has one of these and it just quit. Even though he got the extended warrantee, the store will only give a refund, they will not repair it because they have been pulled from the market.
I foud a blown capacitor, but its the 68 microfarad, 400 volt cap at the input. There are 2 of the 2200 mfd caps on the power supply but both look good. I ordered one yesterday so we will see next week when it gets here.
Thanks again for the tip on where to start.

Mine did similar thing, and originally fine after (long unplug) reset. Habitually bad power where i live, so originally thought it was from momentary losses, then 1 month after the (short 90-day) warranty expired, it would not reset or come back to life. Mine had blown capacitor, $2.79 at local electronics shop and few minutes for me to remove and resolder and reconnect cables. Capacitors should have flat tops, one of mine was clealry bulged, with small drop of dried electrolyte from inside capacitor. Look at the 2200 mfd near the incoming power cord. Replaced 10V with 16V, as unsure whether it was just originally undersized for power fluctuations in my neighborhood. Has been working w/o problems since.

Sounds like the power supply or the fan has quit.
