This is a DVD-VCR player combo., complaint , dead.
Located a service manual [ http://www.mediafire.com/file/02... ]
Turns out the DVD door opens and closes normally but there is no display lighting
up. The VCR carriage motor attempts to spin then stops, remote seemed to have no effect.
Found a tip in another resource that said check
CIS508 1000\10 vented in supply.
It looked ok but changed all the 1000 / 10V caps in the supply anyhow plus another one near the display.
Funny that the dvd tray is fully working and I think I hear it checking for a dvd.
I didnt think the VCR section worked before, so I didnt put in a tape, but
it loads and plays a tape now, and the OSD comes up on the TV, and everything save the
display on the main board is working.
Resoldered the pins to the display, plus the ones on the connector to the button board mounted nearby.
Manual says its an LED type display , I have +5V to IC701, resoldered XT601, still no display.
Any suggestions on what else to check? Should I be able to get some segments on the display to light using diode check on the dmm?
