Hi can anyone help a newbe please

My Mvision HD200 reciver seems to be locked, when you turn it on from the switch on the back only a green light comes on there is no red power light or display and the stanby button does not activate it.

I have tried all the buttons on the front and all the remote buttons but i can't seem to get it to come back to life

Any sugestions please?
Thnks Brian:confused

Hello

Welcome to the forum bri1uk

Well it sounds like your Power Supply Unit may have gone down especially if the red power LED is missing , how old is the unit?
If still in warranty the repair should be FOC. Where did you buy it from?

Hi thnks for the reply, sorry it has taken so long to repond too.
I puchased the receiver from Ebay on the 30.9.2008 so i think it will be out of warrenty.
If it is the power unit that has gone could you tell me why i am getting the green light on the front?
I thought had it of been that i would get No lights at all.
Regards Bri1uk

Try to disconnect any usb device or hard disk from the receiver.

Sorry I misunderstood I assumed you meant the kind of green on/off button that lights up indicating there is power when switched.
as in this -http://www.crazypc.com/products/82396G.html

You mean a green LED on the front lights up I assume.

Yes sorry i should of made it more clear.
I have taken the front cover off the receiver and there are two LEDS underneath, on the circut board there is 1 Green that says lock under it and then there is the Red power LED.

When you switch the receiver on from the main rear switch only the Green LED comes on,
i thought there might have been some sort of parent lock or pin that needed to be entered to reacivate it, but i don't think that is the case now.
Regards Brian

Power supplies often contain multi-tapped transformers that provide all the different voltages that may be required by a piece of equipment. Thus one part of the system can still be working and hence an LED lighting up whilst another is not. If you are used to componants and circuits and are aware of the inherent dangers of stored capacitance charges it may pay you to inspect the componants you can see, to check for swollen or blown capacitors which are often the cause of failures. Failing that try to find a local electronics shop who will do it for you.
