I posted this in another thread on Sunday, but haven't gotten a reply, so I thought I'd try here.
I've had an F8500 for around 5 or 6 years. Bought mine shortly after they were discontinued for 800.00 It's been excellent, until today.
It went black this morning after having been on less than a half hour. I have no red standby light, no sound, nothing. Left it unplugged for over an hour, still nothing.
After reading through the thread on the power issues, I've come to the conclusion it's the main power board, and not the Y board.
From my understanding of these issues, if you have sound or a blinking red light, it's Y board. With no light or sound, it's usually the main board?
Would someone be so kind as to confirm?
