Smoke from my HR23-700 today. Opened the case to find a capacitor (or other small pill looking device) had shorted out, burning the power board plastic about 3 mm all around. Terrible smell. Airing out the house for hours. I'm hoping the fix is as easy as replacing the power board. However I cannot find a HR23 power board for sale. Are the power boards for the 21, 22, 23, ans 24s the same? Are they interchangible? Thank you!!

Havent we really read about only a handful of failures so far? I dont know if there is way to tally it but I'll be there have been less than 10 reported failures, and I believe only the 3 reported fried boards with smell and smoke getting out.

What alerts me is zero reported prior, and suddenly we see 3 or 4....

Don't forget they are also probably approaching that magic age.....You'll see the same thing from the HR24's as well, just like we saw with the 20's, and 21's.
