DVD player won't turn on

Received my Samsung HD960 in the mail yesterday. Enjoyed it last night, but this morning, no power, won't turn on. I'd otherwise just return it to Circuit City, but there is a rental disc in there and wondering if there is solution to get power back.

Unit dead.
Local repair shop said it's un-econimical to repair.
Admitted they had no service manual.
Said they could 'have a look' but likely repair cost would be over $300. Charged me $50 for quote. Useless Gits.

My opinion & findings.
Power supply sensative to spikes.
I Suggest a power filter in-line with unit.

Disconnected all sub-boards from main.
Hiccuping PSU (5v wobbles between 2&3V).
Replace switchmode IC & feedback IC. No change.
Eventualy identified short-cct diode as listed below.

0402-001194 Diode is a Gen-purpose 200V 2A diode. I used a 1n4007 (1A), so I expect to have to replace it in future. It's "D1S35" located very close to right rear corner of main board, part of 15V and 12V rails. Next time I'll use a 'faster', higher rated diode.
I also had no clock progression. Time could be set but would not advance. Been like that for ages - I thought it was a user clock-setting error. Identified Dead 32.768 khz crystal (XT601).

Hired manual $10 +postage
Non-faulty parts + postage $40
1 diode $1

Satisfaction, plenty.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung BD-P1000

BD-P1000 Update Solution
The solution that worked for me: I went to www.samsung.com/ca and downloaded the Samsung BD-P1000 player's firmware update to my desktop. When opened, I was directed to"burn" a DVD on my computer. I then inserted the new DVD in my Blu-Ray player. The player automatically checked and confirmed player model number and registration and uploaded information from the DVD and the update was complete. The BD-P1000 then flawlessly played the rented Blu-Ray disc of "The Scorpion King".
Thank You Samsung!

Cant get the power to turn on,worked fine last night, it got unplugged, this morning plugged in, won't turn on and the power button just flashse

Flashing is either an error code or the set trying to boot up--some of the Mitsubishi sets if power removed will blink for a minute and then stop--then the set can be turned on.

a model number?

I turned the DVD player off last night and this morning it will not turn on. Any thoughts, suggestions? I do have a DVD in the player that I need to get out somehow....

it is possible that the power supply unit in the DVD has failed. You will need to open and ccheck, the fuse might be open and if a new fuse blows out then the SMPS unit is faulty.
Possible that the Sm driver IC /driver has failed. Possible also for allied components to have failed.
Or else you can change with a new unit.
