VHS DVD HDD Combo Recorder Not turning on
Hello, is anybody available to potentially give me some repair advice? I'm trying to digitise old family movies before tape rot sets in.
I'm trying to fix a VHS DVD HDD Combo. Plugged it in last night and shone no signs of life. The VHS part of it hadn't worked for a while so I have another VHS player I plugged in as well as a small TV. It's not the wall socket or the extension.
Replaced the fuse with one from a working device to confirm the issue isn't the fuse (I'm located in the UK). I don't know what else to try or where to go.
What is the make and model number of the VCR/DVD unit?
Just verifying that there are no signs of life at all i.e. no power light, display etc?
Thank you for replying,
No signs of life at all, no lights, no sounds, nothing.
The last time it was working was a few months ago - fully operational aside from the VHS player which hasn't been working for years. I had moved it from downstairs to my bedroom along with the other VHS player and a small monitor and placed them next to my computer. I hadn't everything in order to start then so it became non-operational between those events.
My dad had a quick look inside and didn't see anything loose. He suggested the power at the back somehow got damp. I'm not so sure. If that got damp, then the other would have gotten damp (it was located atop the other VHS player) and so would have my computer.
I'm taking it with my boyfriend at the weekend to try and fix it - I can't try anything until then.
It is a Toshiba RD-XV48DT
