    My girlfriends Toshiba 210e player has developed the loss of sound problem that afflicts these players. The solution was published in HCC last year (not sure which issue, early 2003?) in the Speakeasy section.

    The fix is to replace two capacitors on the sound output board, and the mag told you which two needed replacing. If anyone has this info could they please post it.

    Thanks.

    Richard.

    HCC August Edition:

    Answer:

    "Yes, this problem is common in Toshiba SD110/210 series players now. Its often accompanied by failure of the front-panel display, It's easily fixed by replacing a couple of electrolytic capacitors on the MPEG PC board: C928 and C929, both 100uF 16v types..."

    Thank you rupbert, you are a star.

    I read about this in the mag, then when it happens I can't find it!

    Less than 30 mins work replacing the two capacitors resulted in glorious sound!
    Thank you HCC and rupbert.

    If you have this problem the fix is easy to do. All you need is a soldering iron, solder sucker, small philips screwdriver, small flat bladed screwdriver and the two capacitors. Take care when removing the thin flat connectors from the board and make sure the capacitors are inserted with the correct polarity.
