PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION DONE: Opened and cleaned the set thoroughly. DC supply was missing. Found 220K RUN DC resistor was open.

RECTIFICATION DONE: Replaced the resistor. Set got on. DC readings were ok. Played a CD and noticed that the working was not smooth. So, disconnected, discharged the tank capacitor and removed the SMPS Board. As there were a lot of dry solders, patched it up. ESRs of caps were ok. Removed the front panel and did dry solder patch up. Changed all the button switches, as they showed erratic readings when checked for continuity with Analogue Multimeter. Changed the strip wire of the Eye Unit as it was found strained and unclean. Cleaned the Eye Unit with IPA. Lubricated all the connectors. Reconnected the board and tried. It worked very well. After running several DVDs and MP3 CDs, a couple of them fully, fit the cover. The trying of DVD fully is an essential checking in DVD players, as the sliding motor might be erratic. I had already cleaned and lubricated the rails and the tray tracks with silicone grease. Mission accomplished and satisfaction got collected.

    Since you didn't mention whose dvd player it was, I suppose it was just a found by the road player that was thrown away by some previously owner you easily fixed?

      Ha! Ha! Nothing like that! It belonged to a regular customer. In order not to repeat such, as this can be easily assumed, I am cutting short. As far as we are concerned, when we get a defective device in front of us, charge ahead and repair it! Anyhow, I do appreciate the point!

      Many thanks! Yes, listening to DVDs is still a thrill, though not as good as Cassette or the long forgotten gramophone records, that too made from wax!
