Question about Mustek PVR-H140 Digital Media Player

2 Answers

PVR H140 - Frozen on "initialize" screen. I've been looking for help for awhile.

I figured out by the over posted problems mine might be the same or close. It broke about a year ago and it's past the warranty(not that I'd know how to return it). I was hopeing if I could go to any computer repair shop and it fix? Can they add firmware and format it? Or can I?

Is it NEW? Return it if in warranty time. you've used it past warranty time? Well, hope you get a better answer like mine, though I doubt it. Toys are designed to las just until warranty is over, even expensive toys, and actually I don't know about any Toy-repair Service.

I've recently had this problem with mine but more than likely it was my own fault. In the process of trying to figure out my problem I completely removed the internal fans, once I put it back together the problem that you just described occurred. I just put the fans back in about 20 minutes ago and now I'm back to my original problem. I know this doesnt solve your problem but atleast it might give you an area of interest to start with. By the way unless your an airhead you can take the system apart rather easily just remember the top cover slides off dont pry it off like I did lol other than that it might take a minute to figure everything out but its fairly simple. I wouldnt recommend taking it apart unless its out of warranty or your seal has already been broke.

Closed captioning disappeared

Within an hour after I posted this request (6/28/08), I solved the mystery by unplugging the receiver, waited one minute and re-plugged it back in. Closed captioning is back on again.

I have the same problem with mine..seems to be a common problem. I called Nikon and they said to send the camera in and they would take a look and let me know the cost of repair. Unfortunately my one year warranty is up, if your's is not I suggest you take care of this ASAP.
