Question about Durabrand DVD-1002 DVD Player

Flaming DVD Player...

Ok. So I exagerated a tad. But I just had a Durabrand DVD 1002 make a loud pop and smoke started rolling out of it. I get on this site and immediately see that someone else has has the same problem. Is there something like a product recall going on with these? To me it llooks like this might be a dangerously defective product. And I've only had the stupid thing for two months. Needless to say, I'm not exactly impressed.

    I have the same dvd player and last night I was in the other room, and my kids were asleep in their room when I heard a loud pop. I went in there, and the movie was still playing, so I figured it was just something they had dropped off the bunk bed. Well, it did it again when I was in there. I unplugged it, and took the cover off, and it had blown two capacitors, and was very hot. Crazy thing is that the dvd was still playing when I unplugged it. Anyone know if there are any recalls on it???

Loud pop and smoke is what happens when capacitor blow off. These things happen. It doesn't mean product is dangerously defective. Faulty capacitor, or circuit board, or a power surge can cause this. If it's two months old, it's probably under manufacturer warranty, and you'd be able to get it fixed without any extra cost. Good luck.

Blew Up

The power supply is probably what blew. There is nothing you can do yourself other than sending it for repair.

Considering that this is a low end player, It may not be worth to pay the cost of servicing it.

Dvd wont play

the Durabrand model dvd-1002 is not a blu-ray dvd player. It can only read the regular non-bluray discs.

Smoking DVD player

Throw it away an buy a new one. WalMart's dvd's and all their electronics stuff are produced in china without any quality control and from the cheapest components. They aren't even worth repair.
Buy a branded DVD (SAMSUNG, Sony) to avoid future problems.
