Everything seemed to go OK until the “rebooting” message. Unit shuts down but did not power back on. When I turn on the unit either with remote, power button or inserting power cable, the front Logo light and the cooling fan comes on but the drive does not spin up. No video output. Tried the reset button but same results. Already started the RMA process but wanted to post this to see if anyone else had the same issue and might have a fix or idea I can try.
If the drive does not spin, there’s not much left to do. I think you’re on the right track with a replacement.
