Question about Samsung SV5000W VHS VCR
I have a Samsung SV-5000W SQPB VCR with power problems. When I plug it in, all is see is a faintly regularly pulsing power light. Any ideas? Thanks much.
I've had this happen to me twice in 9 years. One or more electrolytic capacitors in the power supply have failed. Replace 5 capacitors C31-C35.

This may indicate power supply problems, or perhaps an overload condition, causing the power supply to go into overload protection. If you have a voltmeter, schematic (helpful but not 100% necessary), you could check voltages. You should see at +5 volts, +12 volts, and one or two others. A frequent power supply problem is one or more electrolytic capacitors go wacky, and cause the voltages to be way off, and a non-operational unit. If this is one of the newer low cost rigs, then taking it to a service center isn't cost effective. Toss it and purchase a new one.
