Unusual, but not uncommon. Sounds like a general failure of the switchmode power supply within your unit. If it will not power up at all, even after unplugging it from the wall socket, for several minutes to a couple of hours, then it is DEFINITELY a SMPS fault

Unless you are technically experienced with electronic circuits, I would recommend that you submit the recorder to an authorised Toshiba service centre (or similar agent for them), get a quote (and a second opinion - this makes things easier to determine over the long term) - the quote will give you a rough idea of the real trouble and repair/parts/labour cost(s) involved to restore your machine to original working condition - plus it will allow you to get the disc which is in it - back into your hands unharmed.

The upshot of this is the workshop quote will also allow you to make a decision as to whether or not to go further with this unit - up to you. If it proves to be too expensive, or liable to cost more than a brand new one to fix, consider replacing the unit - but only as a last resort.

Pioneer Dv 285 powers down after 15sec


Hi There, I've got the same problems with my DV 285. My power started going off approximately 5 to 10 minutes into the DVD. The only button that seems to work is the OPEN/CLOSE button. Once the tray closes, the unit shuts off. I can't even use the on/standby button to turn it on.

Unit is always shutting down / turning off


Try first unplugging power cable for five minutes and using a different power outlet, if you still get the problem, the unit has a faulty power supply on the board inside.

well sounds like one of the players is not in correct spot thus shuts down (kinda timing issue) see if there is anything preventing it from going jiggle or turn upside down see if you hear anything.
