I just got a Roamio unit. So I was going to go reset my Series3 so I could sell it. So I selected the Delete everything.
My series 3 has worked perfectly since day 1. I got the unit right when it came out. Model TCD648250B 06-Oct-06
After the "Welcome Powering Up" and the "Almost there. Just a few minutes more..." it reboots every time.
code 54 and did all tests, all good.
code 58 Media File System (MFS) cleanup completed.
I also replaced a capacitor C701 (it looked slightly leaking)
with a 6$ radio shack 2200uF35V (higher than the 2200uF25V) is that OK? I figured it was fine because I fixed my samsung TV which has the same issue with higher Voltage capacitors.
I even replaced the motherboards battery CR2032
but the same problem..... keeps rebooting...
why after 7 years, the first time I reset the box to sell does it die?
could it still be the hard drive even tho the test pass?
any advice would be great!
