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.

DVD Player does not work


General Problems
Player won’t work (locks up)
• Try unplugging the AC power cord and plugging it back in.
• Reset the DVD/VCR: on the front of the unit, press and hold the STANDBY/ON button while you press and hold the STOP button—wait at least 3 seconds
before you release both of the buttons. You’ll need to set up your menu preferences because this Reset Procedure returns the DVD/VCR’s menus to the
factory default settings and also erases the contents of the Disc Library.

DVD Tray will not open


I purchased this unit back in Mid November to make DVD's of my kids old VHS tapes. To date I have probably have made 400 DVD's. Sunday we came home from being gone all day and the unit was locked up. I tried the reset button, unplugged the unit etc to no avail. I unplugged the unit all Sunday night and looked at it again on Monday morning. I was ready to take the unit back to Best Buy and the unit ejected the DVD and has worked for 2 days (Recorded another dozen DVD's). Tonight while reading the paper a message came on my monitor that there was a problem with the disk and instructed me to push the "enter" button which shut the unit off and was suppose to recover the disc. The recorder is now locked up again. A number of 000000's flashes accross the display and the unit constantly cycles off/on. So it is trying to recover but is obviously not being successful. I am going to try the same thing tonight. I am not sure if I have a bad set of blank DVD's. They are Sony -DVD R, same ones I have been using all along. I do remember having this "Error" message when I first started this project and I had to unplug the unit to resolve but it didn't lock up and I haven't had any issues until Sunday. Seems like something in the software is screwed up. It is frustrating that there doesn't seem to be a manual way to eject the disk??!!
