Dvd player won't turn on
« on: April 16, 2016, 03:32:59 pm »
Our DVD player won't power up. Samsung. 2010 2551. Any ideas. I checked batteries. Turned in at the unit directly. I have 110 in the outlet. Called Samsung. No help. Has anybody found another unit that fits this tight space?

The DVD player in our 2552 failed during the first year that we owned it.  Kermit replaced it free.
I imagine he would sell you a new one if you asked.

Barb,

We have the manganox dvr/dvd model MDR865H in our 2012 2551.  Also had it in the 2008 2350. Bought on line thru Walmart but ABC Warehouse now has it for a better price.  Works great and you can record to the hard drive.  Check the specs out on line and see if it fits in a 2010.

Barb,

What model is it?  I did see online that there are reset procedures for some models.  Or it could be the power board in the unit itself that went bad.

This winter in FL, I was using my Apollo Convection Oven when I suddenly lost power to it. The rest of the rig still had power. Luckily my DH is very handy in diagnosing problems.  We pulled the microwave off the wall and right on top was a small burnt spot on some wire insulation.  He placed a jumper to eliminate this part and power was restored.  We called Apollo and they sold us a new thermal cutoff for $30 along with a document that identifies three causes as to why your unit could lose power and how to fix it.  They were great support and within a week I had the oven back in working order.  It had nothing to do with the microwave portion at all.  Bobby at the factory was great in telling us how the unit is mounted.

After doing some research on these thermal cutoffs they give them a five-to-six year life span.  Ours is five years old and I use it all the time.

It is too bad that these parts aren't made to last a lot longer.

 Sue you are very fortunate to have a handy husband and I bet there are a few that could've done that job or known what to do. This is beginning to sound a lot like an overheating problem and everybody's having because the cabinet doesn't give ample space as required by the Samsung unit for cooling. The matter what unit we put in there It's going to be a heat problem.

Hi Barb,

I am not familiar with the Samsung head unit.  Manufactures often install a fuse, most common inside the unit.  Since you consider the head unit as garbage, there is no harm in opening it up (unplugged of coarse) and take a peak inside.  Look where the power cord comes in and look for something like this.




If it has one and it looks like this, you are in-luck.  Pop it out with a tiny screw driver and read the numbers stamped on the metal portion.  Then go to an auto parts store or Radio Shack store for a $1 replacement.


There are many styles of fuses.  You might not recognize it.  In Google, type "fuse on circuit board" and then click on "images" to see many different styles of fuses.  A fuse outside the unit could be flush with the back wall.  You might need to twist or pop open a cover to access it.  To be honest, it is very rare to find a fuse accessible from the outside these days.  If there is one, it is most likely inside, mounted on the circuit board.

I hope you decide to open up the box, look for a fuse, and report back.  If you are totally lost at what you are looking for, but are good with a camera and posting pictures, take a good picture of the circuit board for us to review here.

The fuse is the primary line of defense in protection.  If there is a problem with the internal circuitry of the Samsung, a replacement fuse will burn up as well.  So then throw it away.  But if everything works well again, you can assume there was a one time power surge from the motor home that caused the fuse to burn.

Consider this a new "Adventure Anywhere" :)

Ron

Sorry Ron. Not quite ready to give up on it yet. Getting ready to go overseas. Busy times. Keep you posted when we do.

Ron, can't find a fuse like you suggest.  Too bad.  Now to find a replacement that will have the same hookups and size.

Call Carol at the factory. She might be able to help you with the problem or get you a new one, generaly cheaper than you can get it.

We just returned from a 30 day European trip ourselves.

Sorry to hear there is no obvious fuse to replace.   :'(
