Question about Coby DVD-224 DVD Player

1 Answer

Power surge I had a power surge a few days ago and it blew a couple of resistors out as well as the fuse. Is there a schematic of the internals that I can download to make these repairs myself. This unit is out of warranty and if I can't repair it I will probably just throw it away. This unit worked great before the storm. Thanks Donnie

    I have already opened it up and determined which resistors are burnt but, they are burnt beyond recognition and I can't tell what resistance they are. Thanks for the promp answer though.

I doubt you'll be able to find a service manual for this. You are best off opening up the unit to find the damaged resistors and replace them yourself.

Panasonic dmr-es30v will not turn on

The circuit board may look good, but a power surge can damage the tiny resistors, diodes, and transistors. Any one of those mention can render the unit inoperable.

JD-VD502 DVD player blew a fuse. I replaced it with a 1-amp 250 volt from radio shack but as soon as I powered on, the fuse flashed and blew again. I tried twice, same result. Is there a reason this keeps...

Never put any fuse in it and switch ON. It has some short with internal circuit, and should be repaired before installing a new fuse. The fuse use is as a protection device to protect the other circuit parts from further damage. If you will put an other fuse, and switch it ON again, you are making things more worse than present. Find out the reason for buring out fuse. If you can do it by yourself. Otherwise get it repaired by any experienced service personal. Never make it irreparable. OK.

My player doesn't turn on what do I do?

Here are some DIY steps that may help you fixing the problem.

1.Check the power cord - check the cord it might be opened (no continuity).This is due to frequent bending,pulling.

2.Check the internal fuse - sometimes the fuse fail because of the power surge, replacing with new one cure the problem. However if the fuse blew again then this is an indication that you have a shorted parts on the power supply. If no reaction and still the unit didn't power up then you have an open parts on the power supply.

3.If the fuse is intact then you have a faulty in the power supply or on the load.

The next steps should be done by an expert or qualified technician because isolating the problem on the regulator section is technical and fatal.

But first check if the unit is under warranty then avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for you for free or a little charge only.

Have a nice day!

1.6A250V fuse blows on V3500 power circuit board

Your DVD combo use a Switch Mode Power supply.
If you want to give it a bash here is a good guide that explains how they work and how to trouble shoot.
but ...
in 95% of the cases it is a shorted switchmode power transistor and other semiconductors, open fusable resistors, other bad parts. Note: actual cause of failure may be power surge/brownout/lightning strikes, random failure, or primary side electrolytic capacitor(s) with greatly reduced capacity or entirely open - test them before powering up the repaired unit.

Power surge following power cut has rendered the appliance powerless. I have checked the fuse in the plug,no problem. Any ideas?

A power surge could have taken out anything or everything in the power supply section. The most obvious cause could be an internal fuse. If your lucky that might have blown and nothing else has gone.

Power surge has killed my DR-MH200SEK


good day, if you already replaced the fuse and still keeps on blowing it again. you still have a short circuit somewhere within the power supply area or board.try to check if there are any other blown parts or slightly expanded shape part specially for capacitors near the power supply area .

2) If you do have multi tester and have some basic knowledge with component checking try to check the polyswitch protector, this is connected parralel to AC supply right after the fuse before going to voltage rectifier diode.

3) if it doesn't have a polyswitch protector check the polarity of your rectifier diode, maybe 1 of this 4bridged diode is shorted.

Power surge


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.
