I bought an A1 last week, but it wasn't sold in a working condition, it was in many pieces as the previous owner had removed the drive to use in a PC, only to find it didn't work in a pc. So i bought it, put it all back together and it turns on fine etc etc. However, today i went to play a hd dvd in it but none of my films will play as the firmware is out of date, so i downloaded the firmware update, burnt it to cd and loaded it into the drive it ran through the process as i believe it should, the disc ejected, unit turned off, and it says on the update instructions to remove the disc and press the power button, which i did, but now the unit is stuck displaying WELCOME on the front panel and i get no image on the tv at all. I've tried unplugging from the mains and trying again but it just does the same thing, i've pressed all the buttons on the front and on the remote and i've given it a good kicking but nothings worked so far, so any ideas? have i killed it? how do i give it cpr?
