[QUOTE=VoxHumana;2732350]A local electronic shop should be able to test the capacitors and replace any that are no longer up to specification. If they are in doubt show them the video.
I own three North American specification DMR-EH50 models. Here is a photo of the power supply circuit board in one of my DMR-EH50 models:[/QUOTE]
I found a site on eBay that repairs just the P/S board for $59.99. They told me that that board is the cause of 99% of the not powering up problems among others. Just do a search on eBay for “DMR-EH50” and you’ll find the seller.
I took out the board and sent it in and had it back in less than a week. Put it in and its working fine!
Prior to sending it, I did replace 2 of the caps that looked like they were bulging a bit but I guess I didn’t find all the bad ones. I also took out the mother board and replaced one there as well, again that didn’t work. The battery on the board is still fine.
So I am back in business, just wanted you all to know what happened.
