I was watching a DVD yesterday and then the Magnavox 2160a recorder turned off all of a sudden. I tried to turn it back on but it wouldn't power up. I tried different outlets and it would still not turn on. I also tried the soft reset method but still no power. Is my unit pretty much dead now?
does the thing light up at all ? when you plug it in, is the display active at all ?
Can someone say with authority where the internal reset button is?
If so, maybe something can be done here?
If the reset button doesn't do anything, could there be a bad capacitor or even a power supply that could be fixed or replaced? (Does anyone know if the machines have all used the same internal power supply? Would those be interchangeable?)
