Hello, I am a newbie to the forum, although not new to Channelmaster problems.
I have the CM 7000 PAL DVR, do you work on those also?
Similar problems, after 3 years, started having problems with the unit, freezing, red light staying on, remote not responding. I opened and could see that one of the capacitors was bulging. (I am not technie enough to work on it, I had just googled what a bad capacitor looked like.)
Took it to a shop and they fixed it. Got another year out of it, and same problems started again. I opened up and could not see any bulging capacitors. Took it to shop, they said the motherboard was dead, nothing they can do. Now the red light does not even come on.
Is there any slight chance this is still fixable?
