Hello
Its power board had got damaged. It ony supplies 5VDC to the board, which in turn energises the system control and display. There is 4 more voltages out from it is missing. You have to findi out it, and reason for its failure. Actually the swithcing process in the power supply board is OK. But without the above said missed voltages, there will be no motor voltages and mainboard chroma and decoder voltages. The system is very complicated in circuit nature, so without any previous expeience, never attmpt to reapir it. If you are well aware in digital electronics, you can do this. A high quality digital multimeter and a concept of soldering are also needed. I've given you the fault advice according to your post. Determine what should do. OK.

My wife's unit has the same issue - tried the firmware update (from Sony's website) and their suggested fix with no luck. Still works as a digital picture frame, but wrong date and stuck time kind of disappoint.

FYI - Suggested fix for stuck date/time:

Unplug unit.
Remove backup battery.
Leave for 30 seconds.
Plug back in and then put battery back.
Set date and time.

Didn't work for me, but maybe you'll have better luck.

Disconect all the wires from the unit and leave for atleast five minutes. You need to even unplug the power cord from the recepticle in the wall or power bar. The unit should reset itself and hopefully turn back on clear of what was locked on.

Sony dvd recorder will not open


Hi there,

Well while the unit is on and the Welcome is frozen push and hold in the power on button for about 15 seconds or so until the power goes off. Then release the power button. The unit will go on and the Welcome will eventually blink and the unit will eventually cycle into power off with just the clock showing. Then unplug the power and wait, unplugged for a few days to let the memory capacitor discharge..... If further you have the same problem then you need to repair it....... Please post comments for further help or information...........

Good Luck!!

My dvd player rdr-hxd860 seems to be frozen on 'welcome'


I've had the same problem. I've actually unplugged the unit and it's been unplugged for probably about two weeks. When I reconnected the power this morning the problem persisted where the DVD Recorder was stuck on the Welcome Screen. As a last ditch effort I pressed and held the power button for 10 to 15 seconds until the word "Welcome" dissapeard of the screen and back on. This seems to have reset the unit. I know I should have tried this a long time ago. So much for reading the instruction manual! I'm just glad it's working again!

Frozen Screen


Mine does this from time to time. I pull the SD map card, power it off, and hit the reset button while the unit is unplugged. These units are notorious for this. But then again, they're inexpensive. No receipt ... well, you're pretty much stuck with it. No receipt, no return or repair.

Hey wingnutz,

If your HD-DVD player has been locking up after a recent firmware update, you may wish to attempt rebooting/resetting the unit before considering any kind of repair option.

First I would suggest seeing if you can enter the "Setup" menu from the "Welcome" screen. If you are able to do so, under the "Maintenance" option there should be a command called "Initialize." After selecting this command, you will need to turn the player off and unplug it for several minutes. This should cause the unit to reset.

If doing so does not resolve the problem, you may wish to then look for a pinhole reset button on the back or underside of the player. Typically players that have a reset button will return to their original factory settings when this button is depressed. Please keep in mind that not all HD-DVD player models will have such a feature, so you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for more information.

Alternatively, many products (DVD players, computers, etc.) will have what is often referred to as a "soft reset." This is typically done by pressing and holding the power button down for 10 to 15 seconds.

Should your player still be stuck on the "Welcome" screen after trying all of these, you may need to contact Toshiba or a local repair technician for further assistance. Remember that if you are unsure where your local repair facility is, you may always obtain service and repairs by bringing your player into your local Best Buy™ store.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

DVD stuck won't eject


You must unplug the unit from the wall for 1 minute (this allows the unit to reset). Then plug the unit back in but before you turn it on press and hold the eject button and then turn it on, it will eject the disk.

Garmin Nuvi 660 frozen screen


Don't know why it happens, but mine did the same thing. There's a reset button on the back, underneath where you lift up the antenna. Unplug the unit from the power source, push the reset button, reconnect to a power source and it should work fine; mine did. Good luck. Got this info from my Garmin owner's manual.
