This morning my HDR failed to boot. On the front panel the red light is on and the display is back lit. No response from standby button on front panel. Front display blank.
After a power cycle same situation.
I have mains spike protection on all kit however a pc which runs a science application 24/7 was off, an indication of a power interuption or spike last night.
I suspect that the spike took out the power supply - is there anywhere I can buy a replacment power supply - to fit myself?
While I am trying to restore the HDR to health, I have ordered a new 320mb box (as I could do with an another anyway) - I suspect that the hard disk (1tb) in the dead box is fine and wonder where the encryption key is stored (Flash memory, HD?).
