I was reading this forum for some time, when I decided to change the hdd in my 9241 (that was working fine with a 320gb hdd).
I was following the steps required (clear the nvram, change disk). The error message that I was expectin, then run diagnostics then...I was expecting to go about my bussiness allowing the box to format the drive. But no joy, the system exibit the phenomenon called by others "blinking red brick". No life after the initial spinnoff of the disk, always the same lights pattern, but ending in blue-yellow-blinking red (the three main leds). No video ( occasional "no signal") no input possible from local buttons or remote. BRICK.
I was PM ing some of you that I felt are here for a long time so to speak and to avoid the eventual "you read the forum first, moron..)
But no joy, I stiil have to pass trough the general discution thread for the 9241 terminal, then the related 9242, but a search of "failed hdd replacement" and the reading of the dedicated "9241 hdd replacement" give no real solution for me.
The only thing that was suggested (and worked for some) was the USB key while hard resseting the unit. It was supposed do awaken the screen with a popup that gives you again the control. No joy for me! I put back the old disk (now I think that only disconnecting all together the disk I didn't do..)
So, here I am , in the dedicated thread, asking : is there any way to have my fonctional 9241 back ?
