DMRES10 does not power up, caught in an electrical storm
I have a suspicion this is fatal, but my DVD recorder was caught in an electrical storm and there was a power outage. Of all the appliances in the home, only the most important of them took the worst of it, my DVD recorder! there is no powering up to it now, no lights on at all. We took it apart and used a volt meter, and I am only repeating in vague terms what my husband mumbled was going on, "there are some low electrical readouts to the power supply board" but no clue where to go from here. any ideas out there? the unit looks far more complicated than the old VCRs. Has this happened to anyone. just curious before I take it into a service center.

Do not take it in a service center, buy the newest release "EZ" series. "EZ" series has a digital receiver built into it, which is called an "ACCU-Tune". The receiver will swith to analog if the digital skips a beat in reception. The cost to repair your's will be a flat rate of $269.00 at Panasonic's main repair shop. For the above repair, invest in EZ and get extended warranty. My ES10 will not power up, I found a capacitor split on top in the power supply area.

It is very likely that a fuse has blown inside the unit. If you have warranty on the device you should get the manufacturer to replace it. However if it's out of warranty and your not afraid to open up the case of a DVD player you should be able to unplug the unit. Remove the screws and then look for a small glass type fuse located on the main board of the DVD player. It will have two tin ends and a glass tube in the middle. Remove it with a small pair of pliers being careful not crush the glass tube. Replace it with the same type of fuse with the correct voltage and amperage.
since there was power failure , the settings( channel guide) that u had programmed has got earsed completly & u will have to reprogram (memorise)them this has happened because there is a small capacitor(looks like a small battery) which keeps the memory has lost its charge & needs to be replaced.its job is to store the details in case of power failure!!!
