My DVD Player was plugged but it was NOT turned on. The lights went off at my neighborhood and, when the lights came back, the DVD Player was not working anymore. The DVD tray won't open, the DVD Player's red light won't be on. BUT the strangest thing is this, when the DVD is plugged, a very small sound can be heard all the time and, when I unplug the DVD, this sounds goes off, so I think the player is receiving electricity.
This happened yesterday, and an expert from this site told me to leave it unplugged for at least 3 hours in order for it to reset and that will solve my problem. Today, more than 3 hours later, I plugged my DVD and nothing happened, just the same annoying little sound.
PLEASE HELP ME!!!

Re: Magnavox MWD200F not working anymore!!!
Since you have plugged out the DVD for 3hrs the conclusion is that you will need to take it to a repairman the problem with your DVD is that it got a surge due to the power failure.that sound you are getting is from the little transformer in the power supply,the current stops at the primary windings and is not crossing over the the secondary winding to complete the cycle.good luck i was the one who told you to plug it out for 3hrs

sounds cooked, open it up and look at the board with a magnifying glass and a strong light to see if its cooked anywhere. that was a nice dvd player too. google the name brand of that surge strip and see if theres other complaints. get rid of that surge suppressor and get an apc which completely isolates all your living room electronics..
Hello sir/ma'am, my guess is that the dvd player's power supply fuse gave in. Im not familiar with your dvd player, if you can open the dvd player and locate the check the fuse. replace it if its blown up. hope this helps. if you may have any more inquiry feel free to ask me again. best regards, thanks.
ok lets try this hit the power button on the DVD player some go into stand by mode and when power is interrupted you have to push the button manually also reset the surge protector next get a lamp that you know works and unplug the tv and plug the lamp into the socket where the TV was plugged into turn on the lamp, does it turn on? yes then something wrong with TV again may have been in stand by mode plug back in and try pushing the power switch on make sure the TV if it has a remote is on the right im put to get a picture say like a satellite or cable or DVD player. hope this helps.
On front of television is the video, left and right audio plug ins. This is where you will plug the adapters from your dvd player. They are color coded for easy installation.
Step2Make sure the adapter is also plugged in to back of dvd player.
Step3Plug dvd player into power source and turn on.
Step4On the front of television there is a tv/av button. Press this button twice or until it says video 2 in upper left hand corner of television.
Step5Insert movie into dvd player and enjoy. To get your tv back to cable press tv/av button once.
Solved the problem!Well, After reading two manuals on the Sony DVD player, I saw one cable not connected: the S Video connection. I connected that. Tried it out again, seemed a little better, but still not the full range of reds. At that point I thought the problem was either:
1) the cables from the DVD player to the TV
2) the DVD player is the problem
So, I thought I'd start with replacing the cables. Labeled them as to where they went, took them out and went to Radio Shack and explained my problem. The clerk I spoke to was very nice, said he had seen this problem before, and said there was a menu on the DVD for adjusting RGB settings.
So, I went back home, plugged in the cable, and went all thru the 2 Sony DVD booklets and the display menu on the TV. There was nothing mentioned re: color settings. Went thru the DVD menu many times, looking, looking. I felt I had come up with nothing.
Turned everything off. Turned back on. Put in a DVD: It looks great! :)
So, hoping it never happens again..cause I'm not sure I can repeat it! Maybe it was removing all the cables from their sockets and restarting...I know that sometimes works with computers...anyway..
At least I didn't have to buy a new DVD!
Lesson: unplug, re:plug...before you trash it!
I have the same unit, and had the same problem numerous times. I finally removed the battery and sprayed CRC electronic cleaner over the battery terminals as well as the units terminals. Put the battery back in hooked up the charger and it went green. It is playing as I write this.
