Question about Magnavox MDR513H/F7 Player
My unit was dead also.....So I checked outlet first...It was good....Then I tried the 10 minute disconnect and reconnected unit......Saw Unit had power on LCD screen....Hit ON button on remote after changing to HDD and unit works perfectly again....That fix saved me 75 bucks for repair center to do same thing...Glad Funai makes units that shut off before damage occurs...Unit just needed to cool down hard drive or circuitry before it sensed it was ok again....When plugged in it is still technically powered even tho you dont see it on the LCD screen of the unit...

If it is under warranty, submit to an authorised service centre for a warranty repair - at virtually zero cost to you, since its power supply has obviously failed (take advantage of the warranty if you can, this way you can have it fixed quickly as well as virtually no cost). Unfortunately, the power supply is not a repairable item in every case, so you may have a board replaced. Here's hoping you do have a warranty on this one - it is not a cheap repair!
Fingers crossed if it is only 3 months old from brand new - that you get a working unit out of this.

Unplug it and wait 10 minutes. if it tries to turn on and doesn't you probably need to change 3 capacitors in the power supply behind the DVD mechanism. you'll see the domed tops and possibly brown / yellow crust. I believe they are 3300uF 6.3vdc I would use 10v parts if possible. I took old parts off of a PC mainboard and it still worked.

From other consumers with similar problems, it seems likely that there are some machines with power supply issues. If it isn't the power fuse (most likely it is not), then it will be a power supply problem. Others say that labor on this unit is only for 90 days. That makes the cost of repair rather expensive if you own the product past that time frame when that occurs. Because of the nature of this level of quality on this brand, I suggest an extended warantee on future purchases from a reliable company. That should cover you for 3 years parts & labor. One last thought. Should you get your machine operational again; This product has a built-in method of automatically going into play mode for everything. Should you find the machine operating but not responding to commands....always hit the STOP button FIRST. Then try a command. It's odd but that's the way the thing plays.
