I’ve had 2 HR20-700s die in the last 2 months. The First one died in October and I did the upgrade path to an HR34. That box, my cats slept on and was full of hair so I understand why. The 2nd unit was clean inside and had been in a well ventilate protect location. the wild thing is they were bought about 2 months apart in 2006. i bought the first HR20-700 the month it was released.
The symptom I get, plug in power, hear the hard drive spin. The blue power light comes on dimly, and the blue ring never starts to spin. Never get signal from HDMI either.
Any thoughts on jump starting the HR20 with these symptoms?
