my dvd player broke :(

I have an SD1700 and i had it plugged in, it was on, and I turned off the main power to the house...I didn't know it was on, so then when i tried to turned it on, it wouldn't power up...i think the power supply got messed over...

does anyone have any suggestions?
anyone know where i could buy parts?

If your DVD player does not turn on now, the first thing is to check if there is a fuse inside of the dvd player. Check the fuse to see if it's blown. If the fuse has a clear glass casing, you can see if the filament is broken. If you can't see the filament, use a multimeter & check for continuity across the fuse. No continuity=blown fuse. This would be the simplest thing to check.

I second checking the fuse. I have had some good luck with purchasing dead dvd players off of ebay and just replacing the fuse.

If it truly is broken, it's probably cheaper to buy a new one than to fix it.

i guess something else is shoted out inside your dvd. You can try radio shack for the transistor but if that doesn't work, just gt a new dvd player for $100 or so.
