There would likely be a short-circuit in the power supply causing the fuse to continually blow each time it is replaced. Either a faulty IC regulator, and/or several electrolytic capacitors, and/or leaky/short-circuit diodes. This would require attention by an authorised service centre, but it could be expensive (this cannot be repaired by the consumer as some of the components inside are virtually impossible to obtain off the shelf).

Nevertheless, you can submit the unit to a workshop, obtain a quote on the repair cost(s), and a second opinion about the unit itself, before going further. This allows you to make a decision on the information provided by the service technician at the time. Up to you.

As I have mentioned before, Samsung has a habit of using unusual parts in their switchmode power supplies; these parts are often of a strange value or voltage rating, and are unobtainable off the shelf to the public - hence the workshop suggestion above. The PSU may require modification or replacement, but this can only be determined by a technician.

I forgot the password to my samsung dvd player V3500. I want to reset it for no parental controls & i do not have the user manuel


If you forgot your password, press power on from a cold start

with no disc in the unit. Press the REW and F.F buttons

simultaneously on the front panel for 5 seconds. The "reset ok"

message will appear. Press the POWER button and the
DVD-VCR will go to the "Auto Setup" mode. (See page 13)

You can also download the manual on the link below. Just scroll down to product detail to download it.

Hi,
Your DVD combo use a Switch Mode Power supply.
If you want to give it a bash here is a good guide that explains how they work and how to trouble shoot. http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/smpsfaq.htm
but ...
in 95% of the cases it is a shorted switchmode power transistor and other semiconductors, open fusable resistors, other bad parts. Note: actual cause of failure may be power surge/brownout/lightning strikes, random failure, or primary side electrolytic capacitor(s) with greatly reduced capacity or entirely open - test them before powering up the repaired unit.

No power


Sounds like you have a capacitor problem.You need to open the dvd player up and check all the capacitors located on the power board.Make sure it is unplugged and be careful.There will still be some charge inside the unit.
