Don't think about it ... DO IT! I'll guarantee that's your problem.
I used an adjustable supply that was laying around and set it to 6vdc. Just make sure the center of the plug is positive. I think it's a low current device, so as a guess if it's 500ma or more it should work, maybe even lower, not sure?? Maybe someone can chime in on what the OEM 5vdc P/S is rated at. Check Radio Shack or Walmart they'll have something that will work. I think mine came from Walmart.
As a test, switch your source to 720p, that will probably work too. Another symptom of the problem, along with the Blue LED staying on all the time.
Darbee emailed a label to ship the entire unit back, but I'll just keep it since it's working fine. I asked for a new power supply only, but received no response.
After having this problem, and reading all the posts with such inconsistent results, it makes me wonder if maybe even other supplies have issues. As I said, mine is now working fine with a 6vdc power supply connected.
This would be the last thing that I would suspect as a problem, but it was. Cables, placement and such had nothing to do with it.
