Question about Sylvania Televison & Video
If there is no power, functions or display - it's a classic case of failure of the switchmode power supply, usually due to several components leaking and/or short-circuit. It would not just be a simple open-circuit fuse. Electrolytic capacitors seem to be the most likely culprits in any PSU fault, so perhaps replacing all of these caps may restore power to your player. Because power supplies are complex circuits in any device, it is better to submit the player to a repair centre for a quote on the likely parts (if available) and labour costs involved, and a second opinion; then you can make a firm decision afterwards as to whether it is worth getting it fixed or not.
With the price of new players (even Blu-Ray) being somewhat cheaper to buy these days, as repairs on older models become more expensive, consider buying a new player - but since this also has a VCR in it, it might be fixable. The repair quote (if it is just a circuit fault) could be within budget for you. Worth exploring this first.
