Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Standby won't go off

I have a INSIGNIA home CD player, 5 disc. I can't get it to go off of standby. I've unplugged it and plugged it back in, but standby won't go off. It won't do anything while on standby. It won't even power off. I've changed the batteries on the remote and that doesn't do anything either. Any ideas? Thanks.

    The unit doesn't work any of the time. It's not intermittent. It's just stuck on "standby". Any other ideas? Thanks.

It is a loose connection or cold solder and cleaning problem this is the main caused of no sound..Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....

Good luck:

Panasonic dmres30v unable to open dvd drawer led displaying u99 and cant remove


Press the power button on the main unit to switch the unit to standby. When the unit is in standby , press the power button again on the main unit to turn it on. If the unit doesn’t switch to standby, press and hold the power button on the main unit for about 10 seconds to forcibly switch it to standby.

To open the drawer, press and hold STOP and CH UP buttons on the main unit at the same time for about 5 seconds.

Standby light remains on for Harman Kardon 5 disc CD player


Modern electronics stay in standby mode when you turn them off because certain circuitry must remain powered up to be alert for remote control signals. In essence its always awake looking for the remote to send a signal at which time it will turn on the rest of the circutry and fully power up the unit. It is not a fire hazard and the LED's used now days have lifetimes of several thousand hours. You can plug it into the switched outlet on your reciever if you wanted to. However be sure that you do not exceed the rated wattage for the switched outlets. You can determine this by figuring out the rated wattage for the outlet(s) as it will show this rating near them and it will show the wattage required by your cd player on the back of the unit somewhere near the power cord.

Stuck on Standby


Do a hard reset. Unplug it from the socket, the DVD and leave disconnected for 4 hours. This may or may not help, but it is a necessary step to restore all internal software codes to their factory settings.


Hope this may help;

DVD player stuck in standby mode


Bad caps in the power supply is causing this. C17 (10v,470uf), C17,c14 (10v,1000uf) and C18 (10v,470uf). Replace with same capacitance values but 25 volt rating 85 C. Just fixed mine half hour ago works great.
