Philips DVDR5520 - No go.
« on: May 12, 2019,12:14:33 »
Hi folks

Just had one in for no go. Primary seemed OK, start up chip resistors in value, just no secondary voltages. Took the power board out where the main cap bit me. Secondary had 2 x 3300 mfd 10v caps looking distressed, so replaced them.

Surprisingly it fired up with no issues whatever - Just needed a re-scan. Pretty good for a 2008 machine - Chris.

Hi Bruce, yes well,

Have noticed 'Quuq' often pops up on a Google fault search, including quite a few of yours too - Chris.

So, we're giving the DIYers a leg up for free - forum should be members only, maybe.

Hi Bruce,

Gather there are such forums for members only, even might know some members, perhaps, but they never pass on any info, as seems its death or a ban from such sites.

Great fun today as got a new'ish 'smart' Bush/Vestel with a genuine Vestel screen (Gather they formerly used LG where they died like flies)

The new Vestel screen is 'Cost Improved' with Leds 1.6mm square - Bit small, I thought, and with nothing to prevent folks pushing the screen in, if in the mind. Happily the strips clean up nicely with a glass fibre pencil, where a 50/50 3v diode does the biz. Bit worried about any guarantee as just done a third Led mend on a Panny using LG diodes in a year - Chris.

Hi Astracat,

Got my C&G with wind-up gramophones, where spring repair was life threatening. We just wound 'em out, and when we got to the middle where the break was - We heated the spring and sorted it with 'Woolworth' drills in a hand-brace as all available.

After a week or two, we broke through, and sorted suitable nails, then hammered them flat.

Winding back in was an issue, as any slip detached one's head

Happy to say, my elder brother at 84 seems to have survived. Was dubious myself, but elder brothers advice shouldn't be ignored.

Must admit however that he said that a bumble bee wouldn't sting if grasped

Bugger did - Became dubious at seven - Chris.

Hi Astracat,

Worked on Philips G500 series at the time, where we shoved a Woolworth screwdriver in the HT interlock and tried keep our parts away from those PD500 X-rays. Bit daft maybe, as was mostly the LOPT overwind gone S/C.

Loved most of the films, especially 'The Home Made Car' and 'Atlantic Parks' as featured a tasty gal. The first is now available in perfect quality on a composite DVD of BP stuff of the period. 'Atlantic Parks' only available on YouTube in crap quality, where its all colour and no luminance. Recall it was a 'Film Board of Canada' film, but they don't seem to have it listed - Sad.

Later a bench tech for another firm who sensibly didn't do Philips, Pye or the hybrid 'Burning Bush' which seemed to have shop burning issues if left on overnight - Used to light my fags using a Ferguson 'jelly pot' LOPT as 7.5Kv was just the biz to get one going. Memorable fun when I tried re-light one after lunch, forgetting it might be a bit damp - Chris.

Said BP disc also has 'Sky-hook' and 'Proserpina' (Italian with sub-titles) Sadly when I copied it, the sub-titles vanished for some reason, but seem to remember how it went.
