Question about Samsung SIR-S4040R DirecTV DTV Receiver / 35-Hours Video Recorder
A Power line snapped, causing a Spike! What I want to know - is there a built in circuit breaker in the SIR-S4040R that can be switched, or replaced? Any other ideas to test or fix it?
If the unit doesn't power on at all, no fan spinning and no power light, then it's either your power supply, and/or motherboard. Your hard drive could be damaged as well. You can find power supplies by googling tivo power supplies.
You may be better off sending out the unit for testing/repair. I recommend CCS in Indiana. Fast, and friendly service, used them many times. You will need to lose anything that was on the unit (settings, season passes and recordings) to ensure the drive is fully functional.

This happenned to me, and I took the power board out of the tivo and found that one of the solder joints on the main power supply connector had vaporized. I re-soldered it, and now the tivo boots, but gets no signal....
