Hello all,

I have an hr23-700 and I am getting an error code of 04-818. Does anyone know what this means? I starts up then goes completely black. Could this be the HD? I have had this unit for about 1 week.

Thanks

You can view codes here: http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=167420

I do not see that error code there. I know you can do a scan of your hard drive after a reboot but cannot remember how. I am sure someone will chime in.

From post #12 by Doug Brott in this thread http://www.dbstalk.c...ad.php?t=173489

To run the hard drive checks, please follow these steps:

1. reboot STB via Menu -> Parental, Fav's & Setup -> System Setup -> Reset -> Restart Receiver
2. when they see "Running receiver self-check" press select
3. You will see "Entering Diagnostics Mode..."
4. select Advanced Tests Menu -> Hard Drive utilities -> Surface Test

Warning: This process could take several hours to complete. You may want to run it overnight.

The good news is that every attempt is made to save programming. This is less destructive than a reformat all and could provide you with a more stable system if you are having problems that appear to be related to the hard drive.
