    Open the player and test for battery's voltage. In case of a low voltage measurement,you should replace the battery.I don't want to be cruel with you but, maybe that the player power circuit was damaged as well,and in this case it should be repaired by a certified technician (I realy hope for you that this is not the situation).
    Good luck !!!

My PC power supply crashed, burnt resistors, Powerman IW-P250A3-1 20 pin plug to motherboard, bought new power source, but the old power source had a white cable to the 20 pin plug which was -5vdc 0.3amp....

Hello,
For your system to boot up properly, you need an identical power supply for your system. Most likely the reason why your system won't boot up right now is because you purchased a different power supply and it is lacking something(which is the other pin).

The tv wont power on at all

Hello,

Your TV Won't Turn On
If your TV won't turn on, you should check the power cord. Make sure that it is securely in the wall plug. Sometimes the power cord has burned out and needs to be replaced. You may also want to check the batteries in the remote to make sure that they are working properly. If otherwise
Common problem with this TV is the power supply module.
Check the power supply; look for bad caps with leaking/bulging tops, check to see if you have standby +5vdc at the power supply connector, the front red indicator will not be on if you do not have this +5vdc standby voltage due to shorted out power transistor and zener diode, if otherwise, Power supply board just die.It can be dead at anytime.Tries websites Shopjimmy.com,Ebay.com to buy a refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

I hope this will help to solve the problem.....

No power even if I plug my DVD to power source

Good day.

Follow this procedure for trouble shooting.

  1. Remove the cover of your DVD player.Loosening all screw.
  2. Check the input voltage of the power supply 220v/120v AC.If don't have input supply that comes from the ac cord,replace it.
  3. If you have a input voltage supply comes from the power cord.Check the output voltage of the power supply such as 5vdc and 12vdc.
  4. If the you don't have output voltage from the power supply.Check the fuse if busted,check open/change value of capacitor,check power transistor (regulator)if shorted and leak/bulging top capacitor of the power supply board.If you found any defective parts replace it.
  5. If you have output voltage comes from the power supply.The problem could be the main board,replace it.
  6. If you already done this procedure,test it by power ON the DVD player.

I hope this information will be helpful.Thank you and good luck.

No power, 5 volts line is fluctuating periodically (about every one second) between 3 and 4.5 volts. no other measurements done yet... thank you for help DM

Caps look good? it may be in safety shutdown/restart mode. Try heating up the power supply board with hair dryer to see if it will start up, when bad caps are heated up the caps ESR will go down and may allow the power supply to start up. I use 6vdc small lamp attach to the 5vdc so I can see the lamp comes on or not.

Sanyo dp 32746 flat screen does not come on, fuse check ok, power to both boards ,no burn place on traces, what can i check ?

Check for 5Vdc standby voltage, you need this first before going further. The controller board needs this voltage for the micro controller to work, when thw power switch or the remote turn on (the remote receiver on the TV also uses this 5vdc) is sent to the TV, the controller board will send the ON signal to turn on the rest of the power supply on. Look on the power supply connector for 5VDC, it should be there the minute you plug the set into the outlet. Please post back what you find. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague
