My Panasonic DMR-EH50 has served me well all these years but sadly now it won’t power on. I mistakenly unplugged it and plugged it in when it was on. That seemed to kill it. The fuse inside is good and I don’t see any capacitors that are really bulging, indicating a fault. There are two of them that I might replace just in case. They seem to have a powdery substance on the top of them, possibly because they are leaking.
I saw a very nice video about a DMR-ES10 the power supply looks almost identical to what I have, but I don’t have a bulging ‘cap’ as this bloke did. http://montfordhouse.com/dvd-recorder-fix/
Is there any chance someone has a good PS board for my DMR-EH50 or on the off chance would Panasonic repair it if I sent it in? I have no idea how to contact them. The rest of the unit is fine, the DVD burner is still working and I know they aren’t made any more. So I’d like to keep it if it doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg to fix it. I’m not a big fan of paying more than something is worth to keep it. I know years ago I sent it in to them and it was $300 to get it back, but it did work.
Thanks in advance,
