T's most likely the hard drive. You can replace it and be good to go. It's possible, it's a combo of the motherboard and power supply, but first guess would be try replacing the hard drive.

If you have already reset by unplugging then your problem is some kind of electrical damage. The solution will require internal repair of the devise.

There IS a temp shutoff, but if you're getting no sound at all, it could be that your hard drive has died.

Fortunately, a new drive is cheap (you can upgrade the capacity at the same time) and images and help are both easy to find.

Click on here to get more info on the problem you have with your device.
If you know how to use a voltmeter, you can check the voltages from the power supply to the other circuitry.

What was the problem that you needed to unplug it? How long did you unplug it for? How long have you owned the unit? Where did you purchase it from?
The more information I get the better I can assist you.
Thanks,
Lee

Is it plugged directly into wall power, or into a surge strip?

No sound, no picture


Hello sorry to hear that. From your description it sounds like your signal board may have been damaged by you plugging in your laptop to it. The signal board is the one with the tuner on it.

Samsung LN46A650 that cycles on and off with no picture. The red light flashes in the lower right hand corner. Still no picture. Have to unplug power supply to turn it off.


Turn it on and let it run for about 30 seconds. If it still doesn't work... unplug it, wait 15 minutes, plug it back in, then try again. If that doesn't work, you might want to contact Samsung to see if it needs repaired or replaced.

I have a Philips Plasma tv 42pf5321d/37 with sound but no picture


Thats the great sound of Exploding capacitors on either the power supply board. or another one in there. Now the set is in fault protection. It tried to warn you with the RED blinking LED that there was something amiss by shutting itself down. When you unplugged you reset the error and allowed it to do it again.

hold in the power button for at least 10 seconds. It should reboot. If not the DVR needs to be replaced.

DVR S4040R Tivo box


Your hard drive may have crashed. Can you hear any disk activity when you plug in the unit? The hard drive can be replaced, but probably better to either just get a replacement unit (you can get them on eBay for $40 or less) or upgrade to a newer receiver.
