Dead Kiss DP-1500 Player

My Kiss DP-1500 player was working fine on Sunday afternoon, but on Monday would not turn on. I usually keep it on 'standby' and i suspect a guest turned it off, but I don't understand why it should now refuse to work at all! (And there's a disc stuck in it and I don't know how to remove it). Any help would be greatly appreciated (although I know there's a good possibility it's just gone and died, because "DVD players do that." :)

    Does anyone know how to eject a stuck DVD from a dead DP-1500 unit?
    I have opened the cover and could not see any obvious ways of ejecting the disc.

The problem is a well known weakness of all Kiss DP 15xx and DP/VR558 players.
The PSU (power supply unit) can't stand the heat and will fail typically after 1-3 years of operation/stand-by. At first the voltage falls fading the light intensity of the front panel, then odd malfunctions occur, and finally the unit ceases to work.
I own own of each, and they are close to identical as to the PSU and both have had the same problem.
The condensators of the PSU are of a inferior brand and typically 3 or more of them will "burn" leaving a bulge at the top end of the cylindrical component or alternatively leak a dark brown resin-like substance onto the print board.
A complete set of new condensators can be had for approx 5 euros and at that price leaving some of the original condensators unchanged seems unwise.
Read all about the fix at:
Be advised that opening the cabinet voids any warranty, but as Linksys the new owner of the Kiss brand refuses to repair- or pay for repairs this is of little concern.

Hi all, as Great Dane states in his reply this is exactly the problem you get from them. i have repaired 2 of these players now and its a simple matter of opening the case and looking for the bulging capacitors on the power supply.

if your not able todo this yourself ( requires knowledge of soldering ) pretty much any company that repairs electrical kit will be able todo it for you for a small price. just turn up with the DVD and parts and it should cost you less again.

I've had this mp3 player since christmas and it was working fine till now. I added a song to it last night and again it was working fine till this afternoon. It keeps saying File Sys Err (file system...


First, you may want to contact the manafucter of the MP3 player as they usually have technical support. You may be able to return the product for a new one.

If you are able to turn on the MP3 player, try removing the song to see if the problem clears up. After you remove the song in question, you may want to do a hard reset of the device. Usually, there is a pin size button somewhere on the device you press to reset it. You may be able to take the battery out as well.

I provided the best information possible giving the limited details you have provided on the error ( no brand name etc).

I cant eject the DVD. It keeps saying "Please


Try pressing repeatedly the eject button while you turn on the unit. If this doesn't work then it is a mechanically problem in your player.You need to be manually open to take out the dvd.The rubber thread which should be connected to the motor inside the DVD player might have moved from its place.
You need to place the rubber thread to proper place.

Furthermore, if the belt is slipping, the mechanism never gets the "drawer closed" signal, and the disk will not spin.

After a DVD player has been used for awhile, another common problem is that the laser in the DVD player becomes misaligned, inhibiting its ability to read DVDs. So it indicates the defective laser motor. The only way to fix this problem is to bring the unit to a service center for repair.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to ask us if you have any further queries.

The remote for my garage door only works on weekends.

Monday through Friday look at the LED on the rear of the motor unit. If it is flashing rapidly you have radio interference. See if you can locate the source. It will be something electrical - maybe a military base if nearby.

DVD player tray will not open

Maybe this will help someone look in the right direction. A friend gave me a KISS DP-1000 with the same problem: The TV showed the 'Eject' graphic, and nothing happened. There is no little hole that you can poke a paperclip in, like on a PC. I opened the player, and still could not find anything. Then I googled the model of the actual tray mechanism (DSL-710A). The datasheet said that it did have an 'emergency eject' machanism, operated by a Philips screw at the bottom of the tray. There are no holes at the bottom of the DP-1000, only a dimple that dead-ends. I broke through the bottom of the dimple with a small, flat, screwdriver, then enlarged the hole. I felt around with a medium Philips and it fitted into something. I twisted gently, and the tray popped out. Why KISS covered the 'emergency eject' screw is anybody's guess, but I am not buying any of their products.
