I have a DMR-EX95VEBS and it has just died. According to my wife it just said Please, Please, Please as it went. I'm guessing it is the power board that has gone as there is no sign of life. I have tested the mains cable fuse and the power board fuse and they are both OK. Either, is it possible to buy a board or can you locate an engineer/repair service in the TA24 6AZ area of the UK? Thanks, John

The boards are not sold seperatly, but first, look on the board for the capacitor C1808

Check and tell me please if it has vented.

Hi Richard, Thanks for the reply. I am familiar with a capacitor but how will I tell if it has vented? John

Look for any bulges or splits in it.

Like it has exploded, even slightly.

I have checked and found that C1204 displays these symptoms.

Ok, this is the problem.

Can you solder John? Meaning do you know how to remove the Capacitor and attach a replacement?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes. Did some electronics when I was young and still have my iron and solder.


It may be a little time to source the capacitor.


Thanks for your help so far.

Yes, you need a 6.3V 680µF capcitator,
