The controller circuit (usually a small board connected directly to DVD drive - it is either part of the drive or a sub-assembly which is attached - and contains several ICs and small capacitors and a lot of surface-mounted components on its copper side) is probably faulty, possibly due to the original bad PSU (which you have since replaced), chances are the original faulty PSU has damaged this circuit - usually DVD drives operate around 12V DC or so. The digital controller circuit/board not only has the EEPROM/CPU etc. on it, but also has a servo supply - for the DVD (the VCR servo supply is on the motherboard). This powers the disc tray and traverse unit. The controller is not serviceable at component level; it must be replaced and in some cases, the DVD drive must also be replaced where the board is not separate to the drive. This may not be economical.

It may just be a simple case of a blown digital controller circuit - but be warned, this board is not cheap - it is part of a 'module' (the disc drive and controller together = DVD module), and you may not be able to obtain the board without a new DVD drive. Up to you what you do from here, and you might be lucky in terms of the motherboard and HDD - no damage there.

Check the capacitor in the power supply board, if defective it will show a slight bulge at top, value should be around 1000uf give or take, if handy with soldering iron replace with same value and voltage rating.

I have a Toshiba DVD Video Recorder. How do I record from a VHS to a DVD?


For a toshiba DVD player there should be a s-video input. For a vhs you must have a vhs player that has a component/s-video output. Hook up the vhs player to the dvd recorder using an s-video cable and press play on the vhs player. Then press record on the dvd recorder.
