my replay TV 5504 may have finally died - I've had the cover off a few times in the past 10 or so years I've had it in service but last night I think it might have died.
I took it out of service last night (unplugged it last night - I was watching a recording that started to stutter and after the 3rd time in about a 1 1/2 hours it wouldn't recover - tried holding the power button for reboot - the blue light came on but no onscreen. I then pulled the plug waited about 10 minutes then plugged back it - big spark at the outlet - blue light no onscreen messages and would not reboot with power button so I pulled the plug and called it a night).
this evening I got it out of the cabinet where it is kept - took the cover off then using compressed air blew all the dust out. when I plugged it in the hard drive spins up - but the fan did not come on - tried the reboot (but its not connected to a tv or network) the blue light went out then when I released the button it came back on - still no fan and I can hear the hard drive spinning. - weird thing is the fan started spinning about a 1/2 hour later (maybe an hour). when the fan wasn't spinning I recorded the voltages as:
Color: Y Y R O O B B B B B Gr Bl
Value: 2.9 2.9 33.7 2.5 2.5 0 0 0 0 0 12 4.9
I took another reading when the fan came on and found the Y = 3.05 v now - I thought after reboot it turned itself off - but the blue light is still on - I am going to hook it back to the network and tv to check if recovery has occurred - unless I am missing something
