    Hello all,

    I was wondering if anyone has heard of these symptoms b4,
    Or even a fix for it!!

    1, Front display now dead.
    2, Audio line level (scart and phono) *very* low indeed!

    This happened during the playing of an audio CD...

    I'm suspecting a PSU problem (suspect the display and some sort of pre amp circuit using the same power supply!) but im not sure in which direction to start checking..

    I'm no stranger to a soldering iron if components have to be replaced!!

    Thanks in advance for any reply.

    P.S. This unit also has the Techtronics multimod attached!
    :( :(:(

    That's a common fault (known by toshiba). It's servicable FOC under Toshiba warranty if there's no chip in the machine.

    You may want to talk to Techntronics and see what they can do for you.

    Hi folks ,

    Can you write in more detail , what needs to be done , mine is out of warranty so I donot want to take it to my dealer.

    But I am happy to do some playing around with it on my own.

    I am having the same problem , display gone blank and volume on the scart and R/L output has gone down (it is ok with optical output).

    Please suggest.

    Thanks.
    Moin

    I had exactely the same problem on a Techtronics Tosh 210se this weekend. Out of warrenty I'm afraid so I'm off to treat myself to a new player. Would like to see more detailed instructions for the capacitor hack though so I can have a backup player!

    to reply to both Moin and Tempyyyst:-

    on the MPEG board.... (the one to the right of the dvd tray!) there are plenty of small capacitors near the back of the board....

    there are 4 capacitors to try ... (there not all grouped together)

    C926, C927, C928 and C929....

    cut the + leg of each (in turn) isolate the leg (bend the cap over) so it doesn't touch any other components!! and power up the player!!

    when i fixed my friends player it was the last one i tried that sorted the fault... which means the previous 3 capacitors cut didn't affect the player at all!!! =o)


    HTH

    P.S. if you require further info email me at bigsiy@hotmail.com

    This also happened to me a month or so ago.
    I have since replace it with a Sony 705, so I'll give this capacitor thing a go some time. Thanks for the info.

    FWIW my unit was from Upgrade Heaven.

    Just like to say thanks Big Siy.
    I just done the procedure, and my players functioning normally. Mine also required all 4 capacitors to be 'doctored'.

    Happy to help....=o)

    Although i think the respect (from my point of view) should go to the Techtronics support guys who helped me even when my player was out of warranty!!!
    I know my next player (if one is needed) will be from them!!
    (sounds like a really bad advert) ;)

    when i did mine it was C927!! (just did a random choice of the 4 capacitors..) and ....bingo!!


    I think the capacitors breakdown and go short circuit.... which in turn shorts out that section of the PSU!!!

    I really like this player (even if it has been superceeded)

    just love the audio quality!!

    Regards
    Big Siy
