Question about Audio Players & Recorders
This is an indication of faulty power supply. The output of this section gone to out-of-regulation condition which is commonly caused of faulty filter electrolytic capacitor in the output of this stage. It will dropped the normal working voltage and will disable the unit. The processor can't initialize once there's a problem with the supply.
Another reason of this symptoms is still in the power supply. It has a multiple output voltages and if one of this voltages gone, the unit will not power up. This was caused by open fusible resistor, shorted transistor, shorted zener diode.
Also, consider bad solder joints in this section because it will do the same symptoms. Cracked, dried, cold solder will produced an out-of-regulation condition.
Let me know if your handy with electronics and I will guide you fixing the unit.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to send the unit to your local Philips service center to isolate the faulty parts.
Check also if your unit is still under warranty/extended warranty, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the cover, it will void the warranty.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
