Hi and thanks for taking the time to read this....
I have a TEAC DVB820 HD set top box,and until yesterday it worked fine. We had a power failure yesterday afternoon and now when i turn the box on it just says 'boot' and wont let me search for channels or access menu. I have left it off (unplugged) over night and let it stand, when on,and still i cant get past the 'boot' on the front display.
Anything you can offer to help me will be greatly appreciated

If the last problem happened at first, I would blame the power supply since this is a very common point of failure.
You have had so many different problems preceding it dying completely, it sounds you should plan on replacing the main board and the power supply.
The failures you first had all point to the main board where most of the signal activity processes happen but the fact that it will not even light off now point to what I would call a 'lemon.'
If the set is more than 2-3 years old, it may have still been built by Philips but all the newer sets under that name are now built by Funai, the worst Asian manufacturer of all.
it is a PNP (PlugNplay) device. Try using a different cable to connect to your pc. Should the problem remain, hook it up to a different computer and if it doesn't see the drive, it will be an electronic circuit failure inside the box. The data is still on the hhd but you will have to obtain a new circuit to bring the hhd back online for use.
Witout knowing your set up I can only guess at the set top box getting hot and failing. Is the Teac box well ventillated? If not, put it somewhere where it can get cool air (ie not enclosed in a TV cabinet for instance). I doubt it's your antenna if it works for a while, but you maty want to have your coax connection checked out. If you use a booster, that may be failing. Sorry I can't be of any further use.
Hi! I believe you have some concern on how to get good picture on your hd tv. I will be more than glad to assist u.. on your teac hdb841- there is a port connection - ant in, you have to connect the ant cable from your off the air tv antena to the ANT IN of the Teac HDB841. then on the back of your Teac HDB841, you have several output connection there like component, coax, s-video, rca and hdmi. since u have the hdtv u need to use the hdmi or the component cable whiich is the red blue and green then access the menu of the teac hdb841 and do a scan for the local channels.. ur tv should tune in to hdmi if u use hdmi cable or component if u use the red blue and green.. i hope this will fix the problem..
I have just bought a TEAC HBD841 which was on discounted sale at a local Electrical Store Besides not being able to figure out how to connect the device to my elderly TV because the inadequate instruction booklet that is written in a language an Electrical Engineer would have difficulty understanding - does not explain which plugs go where, (try plugging a three plug lead into a 2 plug TV) but since then I have found out that the HDB841 has been withdrawn from sale and is no longer available. No wonder it was cheap! I suggest you get rid of it - quick
Someone else figured this out, but I've seen a lot of people with the
same problem. Hopefully this will help you with yours. This is for
WinXP and Windows Vista. It worked great for me.
*** THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY ***
1 - Disconnect the HD from USB and power supply.
2 - There are 2 screws at the back. Unscrew and open the box. (The plastic is kinda hard to open be careful)
3 - Now you have a metal box in your hands. Unscrew and open it.
4 - Now you will see a HD and a controller board. There are 3 screws that holds the controller board. Take them out.
5 - Now slide out the hard drive and controller board out gently.
6 - Unplug the controller board (power socket and IDE socket)from the Hard disk.
7 - Look at the back you will see jumper settings. (Mine was set on Cable Select.)
8 - Take the jumper out and plug it to Master ON position. now put it all back together.
The "set time" button on my SR-L100 is located inside the CD compartment. To set the time the unit needs to be in the standby mode. Press and hold the set time button until the time blinks, then use the tuning/clock adj. dial to set it. Hope this helps! Ted
