Have held reset for 10 secs or more and still have the circle off doom.
Looks like the soldering iron has to be found
A bit of background. The capacitors in the Foxsat-HD are made by Capxon. Long before the Foxsat-HD they were fitted in Sky-HD boxes made by Thomson (no relation :-), which failed in around 18 months or so.
For whatever reason the same capacitors were used in the Foxsat-HD but thankfully not in the later Foxsat-HDR. My Foxsat-Hdr from the first batch is still used everyday (though largely to track Freesat transponder changes).
Thankfully they are relatively easy to change. Good news is not seen anyone report a repeat when replaced with a decent spec replacement.
I have one I lean't to a friend that I havent' got to fixing yet
