Wytron DVD-3000 will not power on

Hello all

I have a Wytron DVD-3000 in an 11 bay duplicator tower (1 DVD Reader, 9 DVD burners). The problem is that it doesn’t turn on. I’m having trouble finding a website that has the manual, and I’m not sure what I can do to test the individual components of the rig. I suspect that the power supply is bad.

Would it work if I plugged the controller board into the power supply of a standard desktop computer (along with the reader and a burner)? Is it necessary to connect all 9 burners in order for it to work?

Also, where could I find a new power supply? I’ve checked newegg.com, and they have no listings for a power supply that has near enough power connectors for a 1 to 9 duplicator.

Welcome to the Forum.

Concerning Power Supply – You made a comment that you could not find a Power Supply that had “Enough Power Connectors For a 1 to 9 Duplicator”. To address this issue they make various ‘Molex 4 Pin Power Extension Cables’ similar to the below examples which will provide additional Power Connectors ->

Thank you for the tip, bjkg.

Just for clarification, using an ATX power supply, I would turn the duplicator on with the switch on the PSU, and ignore the motherboard connector?

@ AlphaFox29,

I am unaware of exactly what type of Power Supply Unit that your Wytron DVD-3000 DVD Duplicator requires. Suggest opening your Wytron DVD-3000 DVD Duplicator and carefully and fully note the exact routing of all the connection ‘Cabling’ of the current Power Supply Unit. After fully noting the exact routing of all the connection ‘Cabling’ of the Power Supply (make a Cable routing diagram) then remove the current Power Supply and carefully inspect the current Power Supply and attempt to definitively identify exactly what type of Power Supply Unit (Advanced Technology (AT) or Advanced Technology Extended (ATX)) and Wattage is required. You might be able to find a Model and Part Number on the current Power Supply Unit and be able to Google Search (http://www.google.com) for a replacement.

Perhaps the below Web Links will be helpful ->

If after thorough examination of your current Wytron DVD-3000 DVD Duplicator Power Supply you are unable to definitively identify exactly what type of Power Supply Unit and Wattage is required suggest taking your Wytron DVD-3000 DVD Duplicator Power Supply to a reputable computer repair shop and seek assistance from knowledgeable computer technician in definitively identifying a suitable Power Supply replacement for your Wytron DVD-3000 DVD Duplicator.

Thanks again, bjkg. I’ve determined that the power supply is an AT (according to wikipedia), and can now give my employer a list of options. Thanks again!

The DVD-3000 controller board has to have a standard molex 12 volt plug for every component in the case. 1 for each optical drive + 1 for the hard drive + 1 for the controller board itself.
There has to be an external physical switch that can turn the psu on or off. usually, these type of duplication towers have a specialized psu that works with the case.

It is not technically a ATX psu because that would indicate a motherboard specification. There is no motherboard like that in a duplication tower.

After doing research concerning the Power Supply requirements for Stand Alone DVD Duplicators similar to the Wytron DVD-3000 I learned that Stand Alone DVD/CD Duplicators use Power Supplies specifically designed for Servers (Server Power Supply).

If others who have a Stand Alone DVD Duplicators similar to the Wytron DVD-3000 and require to replace their Power Supply suggest checking the Online Retailers and look for Server Power Supplies.
