Has anyone had this issue where you can't get to the Setup screen?
So you cannot press MENU and then scroll to "Setup" and modify inputs, area codes, network, etc?
I just took a 5040 out of the closet after four plus years, transported it a time zone away, and it fired right up, and let me change from WiRNS to mothership w/o a hitch....
If not, you can always 3-8-2-ZONES
Then set it up. It is probably giving you issues because the SN on the HD doesn't match the chip in the unit since you've swapped hard drives.
You have nothing to lose, and as long as you plan to connect via ethernet, this SHOULD NOT be an issue....
There was some scuttlebut with Replay ZOnes not being updated after a reset... but I digress...
