Question about Samsung DVD-V4600 DVD Player/VCR

1 Answer

Blown fuse hello ,I have a problem with my samsung tv, the fuse got blown due to plugging the 110 voltage tv into a 100 watt transformer to upgrade to 220 volts as i am in a 220 volt country. the transformer was too weak for the tv as there was also a stereo set plugged on the same transformer. The transformer started smoking and the fuse got blown, however, I changed the fuse ,but i do not know for sure what size fuse i am supposed to put as the original fuse got burnt to dust. Now the tv powers on for about 2 or 3 seconds and automatically shuts itself off within the two seconds of being on. can anyone tell me what the problem is? Thank you kindly for you help.

    Hi Aj,

    thanks for your help, it is a lasonic transformer, 50hz-60hz. the stereo set, fuse is blown too, but I have not attempted to repair or change its fuse. The tv however, I have bought a new fuse, a 5 ohm, but it only powers on for a couple of seconds. What do you suggest I should do about the tv?

Usually these step up transformers are design for one appliance at a time , let me know the brand and model number of transformer so I can get the specs info , does the stereo also shuts down?? let me know AJ

I have a older boze disc player which I bought in the U.S.. It has a U.S. Two prong plug. Can it run on U.K current or do I need converter as well as a two prong strip?

It depends on the voltage the disc player was designed to work with and there should be an identification label somewhere on the outside stating the voltage and the current it requires.

110/120 volt AC supplies used to be common around the world as did local direct current supplies but 220/240 volt AC supplies are gradually becoming the international standard.

lots of appliances used to be truly universal but as local direct current supplies are now virtually extinct, modern appliances are either dual voltage or single voltage.
Many small and portable appliances have been produced to work on either voltage - mostly selectable by a barely exposed switch and sometimes requiring adjustment to be made by removing a cover plate. Modern electronics has sometimes provided an automatic adjustment.

Most larger appliances are a single voltage type designed to work where they are sold. The information you require is contained in the instruction manual for the appliance and on the identification plate.

If your disc player is suitable for only a 110/120 volt AC supply you will need a small auto-transformer to make our 220/240 volt AC supply suitable for use.
If your disc player will operate on our voltage, all you will need to do is cut off the 2-pin plug and fit a British 3-pin plug and fit a suitable (3 amp) fuse.

Blown fuse again and again, mistakenly plug in 220 then blew the fuse because its power rating is 110

OK now so you plugged it into 220 when it is supposed to work with 110 and after you replace the fuse it still blows again this may be because of the high voltage the voltage could have caused the insulation on the wire in the transformer to burn off resulting in a short thus lowering its resistance and increasing current flow which will cause the fuse to blow over and over again no matter how many times you replace it . so my advice is to not plug it on again as it poses a risk of fire

Howw do you make a Samsung bd-F5700 blue ray player operate on a 240 volt power supply

You'll need to bring the voltage down to 110-120 volt. Travel converters do this cheap and effective. The player only uses 12 Watt according to the manual. You could use an old 3 prong extension cord to cut of the connector to connect to your power supply. Get the converter below and plug it into the adapter, who then will fit in the extension cord.

Could I have a blown fuse on HTC Blu-Ray player?

you have seen first what voltage apply to your device or you have putted in without seeing nothing. if you make this you must change the voltage block in your device which is a transformer a little transformer and somme electronics, somme time when you plug in and the pins cable going in the same time a condenser inside device respond make the voltage too high to administer , this is why power go out in your room, even this have somme blown parts and you have to repair them changing, at least a fuse inside your device

RCA DRC8335 No power

Could be a faulty power supply in the actual unit. Check inside it for a fuse on the circuit board while its unplugged could be blown. Usually power into unit is higher AC voltage (DEATH) and a transformer lowers the voltage so if you take it to a technician they should be able to measure the lower dc voltages to see if the power supply is working ok and if any fuses are blown.

My Panasonic S35 DVD player was plugged in to 220 volts instead of 110 volts. The problem is just after replacing two (2) capacitors, diode, and fuse. the unit was accidentally plugged in again to 220...

If the unit is designed to operate at 110V AC, then plugging it into 220V or more without the appropriate multi-current (240-110V) transformer and relative voltage switching circuitry to the PSU (to accommodate the higher current load) is very dangerous. Because of the excess voltage applied, the DVD player's power supply cannot handle this, is basically destroyed, and therefore it would be uneconomical/expensive to repair; although due to the possible extent of the over-voltage damage, I doubt it would be repairable.

To put it bluntly, the whole unit would be a write-off, as the damage to the power supply may have also compromised many of the components on the motherboard. It wouldn't be cost-effective to replace every single part in the circuit. You most likely will need to buy a new player (or find a similar used working one which is not damaged for a cheaper price if that's what you want) and if you do, check to make sure it is a mulit-system/multi-voltage model (can operate between 110V and 240V AC, and is capable of doing so SAFELY) to prevent a disaster like this from happening in the future.

The risks of electrical incidents like this are far too great to even contemplate. One can be lucky sometimes.

I have a Phillips TV made in Europe, Model 26pf4310/10, It is 220volt, 50Mhz. Can I use a transformer to step up the USA voltage (220) and Mhz to (60)? 2. Is there a card made to convert this TV to USA...

yes you can use a transformer to convert 120 to 220 volt .it must be rated for 110 watts load or more . the 50 hz vs 60 hz (not Mhz) is ok .. if it works on 50 hz then it will work on 60 as well for most things is an excerpt from the service manual on power:

Mains connection
Before connecting the TV to the mains, check that the mains supply voltage corresponds to the voltage
printed on the type plate on the rear panel of the TV. If the mains voltage is different, consult your dealer.

there may be a jumper or switch that allows different voltage operation .. if not the transformer will work ..

... the problem is that it will tune only PAL and SECAM ... the tuner wont tune NTSC or our high def channels .... it will siill work however if you use an external hi def or cable tuner that has direct outpuuts like svideo or composit video or DVI .. (cant use RF) ... it will accept ntsc from dvd players and VCRs .. even a computer can be hooked up ....its resolution is 1280 X 768 so not full hi def but pretty good ... so you cant use the antenna input but everythig else will work ...

here you can find a user manual in PDF form if you need one ....yikes its kinda long URL but good info....

Taking this DVD to Germany, is 220V current OK for the player?

If the label on the charger says something like INPUT=100-240V AC you can use it on all voltages in that range, if the maximum voltage in the label is 220V or higher there is no problem to use it on Germany, if it's 120V or 150V then you need a 220 to 110 volt travel transformer like this one, you can find these travel adapters from about $5 at eBay or at electronics stores. Remember to ask for 220 to 110 (are the same as 230/115) and NOT 110 to 220.

Good day mate, no problem you can plug your dvd direct to your outlet since it indicates 100 - 240V it only means your player is capable of having either 110V 0r 220V.

note: also try to check 1st if you will see a voltage selector at the back of your dvd player. it's either a slide switch indicating 110 or 220V. if no sign of this selector no problem you can plug your player straight to your socket.
