Default philips VCR smps HELP!!!

hi all!
i've got some problems with a VCR...
when i connect it to the mains, it won't power up, but i can ear a sound from SMPS like bzzz...bzzz...bzzz...periodic with about 1 second period...everything looks ok...apart from the 56uF capacitor near the TDA(don't remember full code...) switching regulator that seems to have not so much life, but maybe it's just appearance...
anyone who got this problem?
any help is welcome!!!

I had a problem similar to his with my JVC VCR. It was fixed by replacing the output caps in the SMPS. They dry out, especially if the VCR is lefit in standby, as the power supply does not really shut down then. Newer supplies may be different, and actually go into some kind of power saving mode.

All the ones on the output side - how would you test them, anyway? Switcher-quality electrolytics are cheap these days.
