Re: PROBLEM WITH MY DVD-HDD VIDEO RECORDER
Yes there is a high probability that the 5v power supply has suffered damage. Anyways just check if the drive is ejecting properly without placing any DVD. If it doesn't then its confirmed that the ps is the culprit. try it and let me know..

Measure the 5V line on the DVD drive,if to low replace the bad caps in power supply.There is an 22 microfarad elco you can upgarde to 47 microfarad to last longer.
If the 5V line is ok the problem could be the harddisk,this is not traceable without the proper software.
I had the same issue. It turns out that the recorder has to be switched off otherwise it won't record. The unit will power itself on at the scheduled time and record your program. It doesn't make any sense to me why this would be a requirement but it solved the problem for me.
Fixed mine by opening up and replacing ide cable to the DVD burner. Was flashing hello. When opened up and touched the ide cable it would spin up the drive for a second. Its possible it was loose connection to the power plug in the drive but replaced ide cable just in case. Has been working perfect since. Very roomy inside and easy to do.
Hard drive issue or power supply. Power supply prone to bad capacitors (look for leakage/swollen tops)
If hard drive faulty you'll need a new one which is no small task. Disk contains firmware and custom file system and smallest I've got image is 10.7gig
