Recorder Player Problems? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello,I am Pete, and I'll be happy to assist with your question today.
What do you mean by "shut off"?
Does it lose power?
What is showing on the display when this happens?
What type of DVD are you trying to read? (one you burned at home, or a commercial, factory-burned disc?)
Can it play music CDs ok?
Any unusual noises from the DVD recorder when trying to read a DVD?
Ok, this is a fairly common fault on these DMR models, and it is usually caused by a faulty voltage regulator IC in the power supply.A local repair tech can replace it for approx. $50.
The power supply board outputs four voltages (12Vdc, 5.8Vdc, 3.8Vdc, 1.5Vdc) as long as it is plugged in and turned on.
Sorry I don't have a service manual for this particular model to hand.
Could you attach a photo of the power supply board here?
The service manual is available from
You should see an Attach File link - it is preferable if you use it so that other experts on this site can also see it and review and input any useful information.
If you don't see a link then go ahead and email it directly to me at***@******.***
Thanks for that, this board is different than those I am familiar with, so I will opt out and see if another tech has a service manual to assist you further with this.
