Re: no power on SONY SLV-E700

Haavard Posted Jan 11, 2005, in response to:John

My unit died when the mains power went down a few weeks ago. It's been a while since I opened it and made the measurements, so I don't remember the values, but in general it's the same situation as you describe. I haven't had any luck in locating a supplier for a new board though. Dönberg Electronics ( has a PSU for a SLV-SE700. I'm not sure if it's the same model, but the price is way to high to consider (I could get a new VCR with similar specs for that amount...). If you happen to find a supplier, I'd appreciate a hint (btw: in case you don't know this site already: - offers service manuals/schematics etc. for almost anything).

    Similar problem: we unplugged the VCR to move it. Once we connected the power and TV again the standby button/light is flashing red/green/red, etc. Also, the display is flashing, so some power must be getting to the unit. Is this the same problem, or something completely different? Any ideas how to fix it - we can't actually get the unit to switch on. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    thanks, I already had that site. I managed to strip out the powersupply from the SLV sony recorder and have tracked down the fault to the connection between the primary and the secondary powersupply on the MITSUMI SR256 board. 3 weeks ago I contacted Dönberg Electronics in Ireland with a photo of the piece that was not working.picture here. ( ) for them to identify and tell me if a replacement would be available. ( they never answered. They have a part called a PC120 and it only costs about £7.00 but I am not sure if it is the same part. someone did say to me it looked like a Sanyo diode but I am not sure. My local Sony shop have given me a couple of UK telephone numbers so I might give them a try,,,, Sony Spares 08702406354 or the Sony Customer Helpline 08705111999 .. only help if you live in UK...sorry. I contacted the other guy who had the same problem posted here, and he eventually just scrapped the VCR and bought a better one. It is a shame that one little component can render the VCR totally useless. If this all fails I will go out and buy a DVD recorder as it appears to be the way to go. best of luck in your hunting. BTW get Manual dont have any info on my SLV-E700UX VCR maybe it is to old .. it about 10 years old. its a reall bummer.
