My ZAT 502 is dead. I've been having trouble with it for months but this morning, it won't turn on. The remote can't turn it on. The button on its front panel isn't working, either.
This tuner was good because it worked. It was very rudimentary, especially the guide, especially because you cannot delete/deselect unwanted stations, but it worked. Then, it didn't. After a few months, it began to drop the audio and lose the blue and green video output signals. It would play normally for an hour or so, then go quiet,... and pink. Power cycling the unit would reset it to normal operation. I should have sent it back then but I don't use it that much, so I put up with it. Now, today, she's dead, DOA, kaput, defunct, expired, dead, dead, dead.
Given what I now know about the unit, I don't plan to buy another ZAT502.
In about three years:
SAMSUNG DTB-H260F - dead
EPVISION PHD 8VX - dead
CENTRONICS ZAT502 - dead
What should I try next?
