Did you replace the little 1uf startup capacitor on the primary side of the power supply?

I didn’t do that yet because it just came to life last time and worked daily for months.

I will check this area first when I get it open. I’m currently in the middle of building my kid’s Tamiya Lunchbox.

Simple recap should do the trick!
it's a fun job to do + years of comfort ahead this way.
bonus ... it's dead cheap replacing every cap.
I replaced all PS caps in my players.
good luck getting it fixed

I’ve been too busy to investigate this issue. I haven’t been too busy to try to plug the thing in every few days to see if it came back to life...and today it did.

I will plan on a permanent fix the next time I have to unplug it again. :)

This one is a dreaded one I found. For some reason cld-d515, LA-2300 players often have a faulty PS. Most of the time it turns out to be that little cap leaking in the bottom.
Have yet to see a startup cap fail in the cld-d925 :wtf:
