WDTV Live Dead Blinking LED


#1

Hi all, almost five months since the purchase of WDTV Live, yesterday was a normal day and when you turn on Live I encounter this situation. He used the original version V1.00.01

I have to study the possibilities for a RMA to U.S. … only in the shipping is almost a new Live in price.:neutral_face:

*Before electronic products lasted 10 years, after five years, after 1 year and now only five months. The quality has dropped to as low.

PD: You can be the next [deleted].

And you tried a hard reset (using the paperclip)?


#3

the magic solution (It does not work and never worked).

I will see the costs of the RMA and may end up opening the Live and trying to fix it myself.

sent to RMA… $100 Back $100 more.

Ahhh [deleted] piece of ■■■■ made by young people of 16 years in China + Software engineers underpaid newbies = FAIL!.

*I’m just angry.

From the Manual. (It appears that a blinking power LED denotes a system diagnostic failure)

The TV screen is blank and the media player power LED is blinking. 

A system diagnostic failure occurred. Turn off your media player, wait 10 minutes, then turn it on again. If the same thing happens, contact the WD Technical Support for assistance.

Thank you for trying to answer, but that solution “basic” I think he has never worked.

Ok, RMA discarded.

Local price in my country (arrived in March “Live+Gen2”):

WDTV Live: $184

Gen2: $146 

1- RMA “Live” (without payment of import taxes, as a product RMA):  $270

2-  Pay all import taxes as new. $220 aprox.

Ohh well, now I have a brick WD, I will try to repair myself, If I fix it, create a guide.

thanks everyone, Thanks to WD for selling a brick (which fails after 5 months).

Are you located in Chile?

Did you import the unit from the USA?

x2 Yes. I will try to change adapter.

Solution (1): I will try the easiest solution, think it is a failure of voltage.

Sounds like a good place to start.

Sure, it’s the most obvious and cheap. After really gets complicated.
