Power Problems

Hello im not very technical about all of this so will try to explain this how i know best.
My Tivo keeps losing power.
I have checked the power cable when i plug it back in it boots up with the red light to say it has power, and I can only assume that somewhere in the start up of it it shuts back down with no power showing to the box.
Is there anything I can do to fix it , or has it died and i have to tell my kids there is no more tivo

Which model TiVo is it? Be as exact as you can. Also give us the first three digits of the TiVo Service Number on the back.

What happens when you plug it in? You say you see a red power light, but anything else? Do you hear the fan or disk start to spin? Any other lights come on? Does anything show on your TV?

It is a fairly common problem to have the power supply in TiVos fail. These can be repaired or replaced by someone with the requisite skills, and there is at least one company offering a repair service (Weaknees)
