Hi, i have a quick question regarding the blinking light on DVP642. I did replace a C316 capacitor, and it did fix the problem, however 3 days later same thing started happening again. Is it possible that another capacitor could be leaking? Or could it simply be that i didn’t solder the new capacitor back properly?
[QUOTE=technology_motors;1554699]the flashing red light is caused by a burst or bulging capacitor on the power supply side of the dvp642’s mainboard.
to fix it simply dis-assemble the unit removing the mainboard totally from the casing. search for the bad capacitor on the main board. once you have found it simply turn the board over and using a soldering iron and some desolder twine desolder the capacitor from the board being careful not to burn the circuit board or lift any traces.once you have removed the old capacitor take it and purchase a replacement from radioshack or equivalent store. make sure the replacement has the exact same voltage rating and AT LEAST THE SAME AMPERAGE higher is ok lower will not work.but the voltage must be exactly the same. resolder the new capacitor to the mainboard and reassemble and viola your up and running again.
i sure hope this helps if not you can contact me at my emails above and i will respond[/QUOTE]
