Re: The Screen shows "welcome. Powering up....." and is...
Direct TV has been working on numerous software issues. Some patches have been downloaded for TiVo that in some cases have caused problems. In your case, it is more possibly an indication that the hard drive is not running and you have a possible hardware failure. When you rebooted and became stuck on the "welcome, powering up screen", it could be an indication of a software glitch or a hard drive failure. I would go with a hard drive failure. Since this is a Hughes Receiver like mine and you own it, you could try a drive swap with another TiVo drive out of a like receiver. If one is not available, you may have to purchase one. Pre-configured and initialized drives are available from www.weaknees.com. I have no interest in them, but that is where I buy Tivo pre-configured Hard Drives from. You can get replacement or upgrade Maxtor Drives preconfigured from them for this specific brand and model of TiVo DVR. A drive swap would be cheaper troubleshooting. There is also a possibility of a problem with the built-in IDE controller or the power supply on your receiver which can't be determined until you do swap out with a Known Good Drive to eliminate a hard drive problem. If you are able to swap it out and If the good drive works, then your old one has corrupted data and would need to be re-initialiaed and reloaded. If it is an older smaller (35 hour) drive, you would be better off with a new replacment since the loading is a somewhat lengthy process and must be done on a computer running the Linux Operating System.

if you have basic knowledge in electronic repair then you can do a check in your player. first you will need to unplug the unit for safety. then unscrew to remove the cover now look for the power supply board which supply the main board and mechanism. try to find any unusual in the board like bulged component parts or any burnt parts, as will as in the main board. if none everything looks fine, at this time you will need a trouble shooting which need to used device like digital tester. you must check weather the supply dc voltages coming from the power supply board are stable if not it will not turn on properly.
I've had the same problem. I've actually unplugged the unit and it's been unplugged for probably about two weeks. When I reconnected the power this morning the problem persisted where the DVD Recorder was stuck on the Welcome Screen. As a last ditch effort I pressed and held the power button for 10 to 15 seconds until the word "Welcome" dissapeard of the screen and back on. This seems to have reset the unit. I know I should have tried this a long time ago. So much for reading the instruction manual! I'm just glad it's working again!
May be a little too late, but usually the problem is the Hard Drive with that. There are several places online to buy a new hard drive with the proper software already installed or you can buy InstantCake and a blank hard drive and make your own
YOUR batteries are bad and not giving full current to phone.Clean charging contact and see battery gets full charge. IFthe battery indicator will show full charge due to voltage but once if you remove battery and put it again indicator will be minimum. then replace batttery.
