I've got a DRM-2001G which has gone dead on me. It happened a few months ago, when I noticed the display on the unit was going nuts, scrolling random characters. I unplugged it, and plugged it back in, nothing. I messed with it a bit at the time, checked the power supply for bulging/leaking caps, found nothing. Set it aside for a few months. Put it back together a few weeks ago, and magically, it worked again. It worked for a few weeks, then started scrolling random characters on the screen again. Unplugged it, waited awhile, plugged it back in, nothing again. Same issue as before. Power supply appears normal, no bulges, no hotspots. I'm getting the voltage to the front board, but it appears that nothing is signalling the PS to turn on the other voltages to the other components.
I've done an extensive search for information on the PS, and turned up nothing of value. Does any one have a schematic, or trouble shooting info on the PS? Does anyone know of another unit that was sold in the US that has the same PS (DVR3000)?Does anyone have a defunct 2001G they'd be willing to sell for cheap so maybe I can make one good one out of two?
I like this unit because of the ability to record from component, and the built in audio decoder. Hate to give up on it!
