hi,what are to two most common capacitors to go wrong in this model,i read it somewhere,but cant find it.It has no power-diagram also would be good
The capacitors in our family's four DMR-ES30V models are in fine condition after heavy use. One of my DMR-ES30V models has accumulated more than 4,400 recording hours and my other ES30 has accumulated around 3,000 recording hours. My daughter has not maintained recording logs for her two ES30 models nor has the laser use time for her ES30 models been accessed.
The problematic capacitors are usually the largest single or (in some models like the DMR-ES30V) the largest dual electrolytic capacitors in the power supply. The first photo shows the power supply platform with the cover in place. The two largest electrolytic capacitors are seen toward the right in the second photo.
I have (3) ES-30v DVDRs which have been basically plugged in since '05 and other than all of them having a rather dim display, they're all still chugging along. One is used probably 3-4 times a week, one 3-4 times a month and the other only 3 or 4 times/year. Luckily I also haven't had any capacitor problems although I do know people do.
