When you first plug it in, do you get anything at all displayed on the TV?
Wow, A TiVo forum
My name is Dave
I have 2 TiVo's and I convinced my mum to buy a TiVo a couple years back.
Mum's TiVo has possibly died. It doesn't do anything, no tv display at all.
Was it does do is a green flashing light on the front only. I can hear the hard drive spinning, the Ethernet lights are both staying on.
I have contacted TiVo. They said to unplug it for 6 hours, plug it back in and let it reboot. I had left it for nearly 24 hours, plugged it back in and Im getting the same response.
Has anyone else got any ideas??
Has the hard drive just crashed?? can I just replace it and Im done??
I don't get any display at all. The only thing I get is a green flashing light on the front.
Is there a Repair agent in Perth??
I don't know of any, has TiVo suggested a local repairer?
This group does have a volunteer repair person who charges very reasonable rates, but he is located in Melbourne.
I suggest you contact Darren to see if he has any advice for you.
Sorry for the late response, busy at work
Thanks mate. I will try him
I've sent mums TiVo to Darren for repairs, he is able to fix it, while working on that, he is sorting me out with 2 new hdd for my 2 tivo's
Just waiting for the works to be completed then happy days
Darren seems really good to deal with
Thanks for his recommendation, I would recommend also
I've just got the same thing on one of our TiVoHDs after it was switched off briefly. I revived it by heating the RAM chips with a hair dryer. Only a temporary fix until next time it gets switched off, but still a useful trick in case anyone else gets the same fault.
