    Start simple.
    The blinking red LED means you have power to the player.
    Are you sure of your connections concerning all other wires in the power harness?
    Any fuses internal to the player?
    Make sure your hook-up is correct, then you'll move on to the power supply section.

    Please don't post the same message twice smuscat. I have combined them so all the information is in one place.

    Thanks for your replay
    I posted the second thread so I can be more clearer. I might be more arrogant if I ask for the service manual or schematic.
    Many thanks

    LMGTFY <-- I assume you've tried that? I note you're asking for a manual on another site. Good luck. Check the "But wait, before you ask" thread for more places to search.

    And it's fine, if you have more information, just post an additional reply to your thread.

    Not arrogant to ask for a manual.
