When mine decided to do the red flashing light deal when I was playing with the hdd, the only way to bring it back to life was hooking up an external USB hdd.My
(9241) had an issue where deleting a show, would cause the PVR to restart. HDD was 1st suspect. Ran HDD diags, and they failed as expected. restarted PVR and got flashing red on front panel, unless I put a card in slot (This one didn't need one - internal) - upon further inspection I noticed these caps failed:
C152 - 820uf 6.3V
C164 - 820uf 6.3V
C272 - 820uf 6.3V
C273 - 820uf 6.3V
These were obviously bloated, and I replaced them (if you are good at de-soldering, a good source is xBox 360.)
Still have flashing red on front panel. FPR does nothing.
I'm guessing Imma replace them all... or replace this unit.

I’ve read USB sticks work, tried a couple and no go. Plugged in my external drive and bingo. Cleared the nvram and no more flashing light on boot, still haven’t actually had time to actually fix mine yet but it at least works again
