First off, i want to sat hello… in my search for a fix for my DVDR i was adviced to sign up here from another forum i was searching on.
i own a Panasonic DMR-ES30V, and a week or so again, it was really struggling to power up. if i kept unpluinging it, and plugging it back it, everynow and then, it would power up, but then it would only play for 10min or so before going off all together. then i’d have to sit plugging it in and unplugging it for ages till it would comed on again… i got a F09 code come up, and i lookied this up as being capacitors. i stripped my unit down, and found one 680 mf capacitor (C1209) had burst. i changed this, hoping this would cure it.
since the fix, it powes up fine, and stays on, but i now have a new problem. the dvd comes on, plays etc, but after a while (the time varies from 2 min, to 15 min) the DVD stops, the unit says ‘BYE’ and goes into standby, or back to ‘SELF CHECK’.
at this point, i must add that during repairing the capacitor, i did actually damage the ribbon cable that connects the DVD drive to the main board via the DTS/DD board… i couldn’t get the DVD on at all at first, but i did think i had fixed this ribbon, by cutting the damaged part off and then stripping it back with a scalpul to reveal the copper inside. this got the dvd playing again, but this is where i faced the problem of it keep going into standby, with just the clock on the display.
does anyone know what could be causing this? might there be another damaged capacitor that is forcing my unit to shut down to stand by? reading other posts, i notice people always say 2 capacitors within the power supply, but i only saw the one had burst/bulged and this wasn’t close to the power supply at all… has anyone else changed the capacitors in this model and can tell me which they had to change… my repair has obviously ‘helped’ as at least now it doesn’t completely power down, just keeps going into standby. coulld me damaging the ribbon be causing this? even though i am sure i fixed it… i could do with sourcing a new ribbon, just so i can rule out if it is that or not, but am not sure where to find one, i have looked online, but not coming up with much. its a 40pin/strand ribbon with ‘‘SUMITOMO-Y AWM 80C VW-1 -F-’’ written on it… i have also noticed an ic labeled on the board as IC1106 looks like it has produced a fair bit of heat in the past, as the board is pretty dark around it… does this have anything to do with putting the unit into stand by?
any help would be greatfully recieved
