No power When I plug the vcr to a power outlet, it does not turn on. There is no noise, no lights turn on; it's completely dead. I opened it to see if I could see something burnt, but everything looked fine. I closed it again, because I just could not find any problem with it. I had it stored and hadn't used it in almost a year, and now when I tried plugging it, it does not work.

This likely indicates a dead power supply, or a blown fuse in the power supply, and if the fuse is blown, this usually indicates a serious problem with it. If you have a voltmeter and some tech savvy, you could check for proper voltages produced by the power supply circuit. A normal power supply will produce: +5 volts, +12 to 14 volts, & a -40 volts or so. The latter is to power the LCD display, if present. If these voltages are missing, or way off, then you have a defective component in the power supply circuitry. Incorrect voltage values are usually point to a defective electrolytic capacitor. Replacement caps. can be found at Digi-key Corp.-- their Panasonic FC series is what you will want. Or, Mouser Electronics has suitable. If there is no voltage at all, then you may have a blown switching transistor, and perhaps a few other small parts bad. Tech savvy is a requirement here, as these kind of failures are frequently caused by a problem elsewhere, and a repeat poof is almost certain unless the other problem is found & repaired. Otherwise, if this is a low dollar VCR like most of the last 10+ years, repairs might not be economical.

RCA DVD Recorder+VCR Combo DRC8320N

Sure, here are some possible things you can do if your RCA DVD Recorder+VCR Combo DRC8320N is not working:
  1. Check the power cord. Make sure that the power cord is plugged in securely and that the outlet is working.
  2. Reset the DVD recorder. Unplug the DVD recorder from the power outlet for 30 seconds, then plug it back in.
  3. Try a different DVD. If you are trying to play a DVD, try a different DVD to see if that works.
  4. Clean the laser lens. The laser lens is responsible for reading the DVD discs. If the laser lens is dirty, it may not be able to read the discs correctly. You can clean the laser lens with a soft cloth and some isopropyl alcohol.
  5. Replace the laser assembly. If the laser lens is damaged, you may need to replace the laser assembly.
  6. Take it to a repair shop. If you have tried all of the above and the DVD recorder is still not working, you may need to take it to a repair shop.
Here are some safety guidelines to keep in mind:
  • Do not attempt to open the DVD recorder yourself. This could void the warranty and could also be dangerous.
  • Do not use any chemicals or solvents to clean the DVD recorder. This could damage the components.
  • If you are taking the DVD recorder to a repair shop, be sure to pack it carefully. You do not want to damage the components during transport.
I hope this helps!

Wont turn on

It is always good to give some information about the case with your question, like if there was a power out, strange noise from the computer or anything that might suggest or assist helping you.

try this:
1. Unplug the power cord
2. Press the power button several times
3. Plug the computer back in to the power outlet and try again.

If it fails, try to open the side of the computer,
Check to see if when connected to the power outlet, you can see a led on the Motherboard turning on.

It might be that your PSU is dead.

My sharp LC-46SV50U wont turn on

get the service manual and then open it up and do a voltage check on the 5v standby.

if it's not showing anything, then you need to hunt down if it's the ic, cap, or diode or a combination thereof.

Fisher & paykel washing machine has no power

it was probably the pump shorting / overheating, and running it has caused it to blow the fuse in the motor controller.

Problem

If the AC power source (outlet) is ok and the line cord and fuse are ok but the unit is completely dead, you may have a problem with the internal switching power supply.

Locate the switching power supply and see if there is a fuse on its circuit board.

Completely dead units are typically caused by a failure in the power supply section.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!

No power

I assume you unplugged the unit for several minutes and tried plugging it back in to reset it. Is the outlet ok? Did you try plugging something else into the same outlet and it worked?

If the cord is ok and the fuse isn't blown and the VCR is completely dead, I would say that you have a problem in the power supply section. This could be a bad transformer, rectifier or regulator module. Unfortunately you'll need to take it to be serviced.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.
