Question about RCA DVR40 DIRECTV DVR with TiVo
The fan runs just fine but the DVR will not turn on and items will not record.
A lot of times this is a power supply issue, if you are of the electrically adept you can check the capacitors on the power supply, it usually tends to be one of the 2200 mf ones.... otherwise there are places you can send it to for repairs, or it's also possible to just buy a new powersupply from http://www.weaknees.com

I had the same problem. after doing a little research and calling Directv, I discovered the problem was the hard drive crashed.
I considered buying one from directv, but was informed it was a lease.
Luckily a friend just switched his TV service to Verizon FiOS and had a DTV DVR with he sold me me.
Also saw some on ebay for under $50.00. That might be an option for anyone who wants to use the buy to own option.
I now plan on seeing if there is a way to save the recorded programming on the kaput unit. Failing that. it gets "recycled".
