First off let me say I bought this unit used.
It works great other than the three times it's gone into a comma state over the past year. I'll get home from work and the screen on the box will be blank and if I try to power up the receiver, nothing happens. The past two times this has happened, I'd unplug and plug the unit until it finaly boots up on it's own. Today it happened again, although it just didn't want to re-boot. I decided to remove the cover and have a look inside thinking that the HDD may be my problem and that I'd try unpluging it. Once I got the cover off I can see what looks like old dried up soda all over the board and some on the HDD. How do I clean up this mess? Also, if my problem persists can I swap the HDD for a new one and how big can I go? Will the receiver automaticaly format the new HDD once installed?
Millions of thanks for anyones who helps me out.
