  1. Philips DVP642 Capacitor (C316) Replacement, Standby Light: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • If your Philips DVP642 DVD Player does not turn on, but your standby light is flashing, a failed capacitor might be your problem. The C316 capacitor is a very common fault on this model Philips, but it may not be the fault with yours. This guide should help you determine if this fix is for you.

    • Replacing the capacitor is easy and cheap. Your local Radioshack should have them in the store or you can purchase them online for about $.20 (digikey.com, mouser.com, jameco.com)

  2. Philips DVP642 Capacitor (C316) Replacement, Unplug The Device: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • Be sure to unplug your device from the wall BEFORE you open it.

    • Remove 8 Phillips Head screws. There are 4 screws along the back and 2 on each side of the device.

    • (Only the screws along the back that secure the lid need to be removed. Such as the one on the right in the first picture)

    • There are 2 screws on each side.

  4. Philips DVP642 Capacitor (C316) Replacement, Remove Top: step 4, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the top of the device. It should lift right up.

    • This is a good time to inspect the underside of the lid for clues. Pictured is the lid from another player with a no power issue. The failed components left a burn mark right above them.

  5. Philips DVP642 Capacitor (C316) Replacement, Be Careful!: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • Take care not to touch any of the components on the Power Supply Board. There could still be high voltage present.

    • The power supply board is the tan colored circuit board.

    • There are 3 ribbon cables that need to be disconnected. One can only be disconnected at the Main Board. (green)

    • Unscrew the 3 mounting screws and release the 4th corner of the board from the plastic standoff using a pair of needle nose pliers.

    • Here's a better view of the plastic piece with the board removed. You're just squeezing the two little "wings" together while pulling up on the board. Be patient, it can be a little tedious.

    • Capacitors can store large amounts of electricity. It is advised that you take the time to discharge them using the proper tool and not just a screwdriver. Touch both leads with a resistor to do this safely.

    • Use a multimeter to ensure that each capacitor is fully discharged.

    • If the top of the capacitor is bulging (or completely blown out) this is an indication that the capacitor has failed.

    • If the capacitor is not bulging, it could still be bad. You can test this using a capacitance meter or an ESR meter.

  10. Philips DVP642 Capacitor (C316) Replacement, Desolder The Capacitor: step 10, image 1 of 1
    • The two joints indicated in the picture are the ones you need to desolder.

    • Add a little bit of flux to the solder joints and tin the tip of your soldering iron.

    • When the solder melts, use the desoldering tool to remove the solder.

    • Remove the old capacitor

    • Be conscious of the orientation of the new capacitor. Electrolytic capacitors like this one are polarized and will only work in one direction.

    • Notice that I am using a capacitor with the same capacitance, but a higher voltage rating. This only increases the voltage the capacitor can handle before failing, it does not raise the voltage of the circuit. It is important not to use a lower value, however. Be sure to use the correct capacitance (1000uF).

    • The grey line indicates which side is negative. The negative side also typically has a shorter lead. On the board, the "shaded" half of the circle with the hashmarks is the negative side.

    • Insert the new capacitor and bend the legs outward to help hold it in place when you turn the board over.

    • Solder the leads and clip the excess length.

  12. Philips DVP642 Capacitor (C316) Replacement, Reassemble: step 12, image 1 of 1
    • Reassembly is the reverse of the disassembly process. Don't forget to reattach the ground wire under the screw that secures the board.
