Question about Polaroid DRM-2001G DVD Recorder/HDD Recorder

2 Answers

Power off, then will not come back on for several hours.

Unit will not power back up immediately after turning off. Needs several hours. Tried unplugging, no help. Unit fan will come on, no power light, no video or front display. Possible transformer? I had to change the cooling fan already, $7 at radio shack.

Has anyone been able to locate schematics for the power supply in this thing? The undersized power supply seems to the main point of failure. Otherwise, I have been pleased with the unit. Mine was sent back to Polaroid for RMA back in February 2008. I don't think any warranty is in effect now.

Please let me know if any one has tried to trouble shoot the TOPOW DVD RW POWER857B power supply. Two of the chips I can not identify are the 8pin Dip 2216A & a 4in dip 7703

I have tried to locate the power supply manufacturer: Shenzhen Topow Electronics Co., Ltd. Their website is:http://www.topow.com.cn but my web browser can't handle the Chinese to English translation.

I think it is very likely that an AT or ATX power supply could be substituted if all the pinouts of the original power supply are known.

**Both times, my unit failed shortly after the fan started making noise. The problem has to be heat related.

Check for any bulging capacitors specially the big green onces at location CE10 in power board. If any of the capacitor is bulging then you need to replace them. This will need some soldering skills. You can get capacitor from Ebay. I am not able to find these in RadioShack near my location.

My T.V. Will power on for a couple seconds then immediately turn off! Please help!


Hi,
Unplug the unit from the outlet for at least 1 hour and check if the symptoms persists. If yes, check if the unit can give an error code by following the steps below.
- Power on the unit and wait until the initialization takes place.
- Press the front panel "Input" and "Menu" buttons at the same time and hold it for 5 seconds, it will activate the error code mode. LED flashes a two digit error code. Example, if the error code is "22" the LED will flashes two times pause and then flashes two times and will repeat the error code for 5 times.
"12" means no error has occured.
Please let me know what will be the result to assist you further.

What is the exact model of the unit? How long ago was it purchased? If it is under warranty you may want to go that route, or have the unit serviced by a qualified technician in your area. If you give me your location I can assist you in finding one.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,

Possibly dead batteries in the tstat. Turn power off, remove tstat , wire red yellow green together and turn unit on. This should make everything work, if it does the problem is the tstat.

Lenovo z51t, no indication of life when power up


Try this. Turn off unit. Unplug charger. Take out battery. Replug charger - not battery. Turn on computer. If it comes on the battery has a glitch and should recover after an hour or so. If it doesn't come on, the unit needs to see a reputable computer repairperson.

Good Luck

Just a long shot, but...

I have an epson 9000i that did the same thing. Turns out that unit has a small fan (I think 60mm) right next to the power supply to keep it cool, in addition to the large fan that exhausts past the lamp. The fan runs non-stop as long as the unit is powered-up for two reasons I can think of - keep the power supply a little cooler, and the lamp a little warmer so there's not such a temp difference when it powers-up. Long story short, that fan had died. I replaced it with an aftermarket 60mm fan and it's been working fine ever since. Hope this helps.

LG LCD TV Standby Light Flashing Red Continuously


I have had this same problem twice in the past 3 months. So far both times I've been able to get it back after a week or two. I'm not sure what works, but unplugging and detaching the antenna and cable and waiting a few days seems to be the key. In both instances, I unplugged it for a few days then plugged it in for a few days and repeated the processes until I eventually got the steady red led. Both times prior to the red led the led would flash red then green and make a clickiing noise for several hours before I was able to get it working again.
