Some surge protectors cut off all power, when they reach the surge protection limit in joules. Power strips have reset buttons to restore power. Try plugging it directly into the electrical wall socket. If it works, then purchase a new surge protector. The DVD recorder may have a internal fuse that has burned open.
There is usually an internal fuse in all audio/video equipment and it will normally be a 20mm glass one positioned near the power supply or somewher close on the circuit board. There may be more than one so have a good check around. Be sure to replace with the same type and rating, no sticking kitchen foil across it to short it out, this illegal and DANGEROUS.
the most probable cause of malfunction in your equipmenty is a a electrolitic capacitor in the power source. The capacitor is marked with a value of 1uF 400V in the primary side of the PSU. Replace them and the unit is alive for 20 years more!!!
Greats and good luck!!
Does it have any lights at all coming on? If not then the power
supply has failed. You can try and replace the internal fuse, but
that rarely is the cause of the problem (unless you got a power
transient just enough to pop the fuse but nothing else). More
likely, the power supply is dead and not worth replacing unless it is a
high end model. If you take a chance and replace the P/S,
sometimes the circuitry (microprocessor brain) is toast as well which
is not repairable.
