So....If the unit is absolutely dead, I would take a look at the power board and see if the in line power fuse has blown. You will have to remove the cover of the DVD player to check this since it is not usually a user replaceable component. The power board will be on the other end of the power cord!!


That is my only suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable removing the cover, then you would have to pay someone to do it and since you can buy a new DVD player for under $50 these days, I doubt paying a repairman $75 just to look at it would be economically adviseable.

We have taken off the casing and see no fuse do you have any other solutions

There should be a fuse. Please look again. Near the transformer.
