Bought after changeover, now dead. Does not even show this error again.

 

Downloaded uec update file, got a USB stick from Walpole 20 or more km away, held CH+/CH- keys as per update instructions but the unit would not download. Am doing this as UEC suggested flash memory problems.

 

At least UEC gives a firm repair quote and if one does not accept the quote then it costs $20 for the postage/handling back. This is a PVR model which stopped after a night time recording.

 

May or may not get it fixed; at least one has a choice now of several models to purchase.

 

Electrolytic caps look OK and the 'magic smoke' has not escaped from anywhere.

 

Question: Anything else I can look at to fix it myself??

As I have several power supplies with 3.3V, 5V and 12V I am wondering if the following can be confirmed as the output of the power board of the DSD4121 PVR ready:

 

From left to right:

 

3.3 3.3 GND GND 5 5 NC 12

 

This is a suggestion from a friendly Whirlpool member, does this look OK?

 

All it seems to say on my power board is       3.3  5V      12V    but seven lines go to the sat board in the ribbon cable.
