So I bought a use HD for my Mom. I plugged it it and it booted up fine. However there were recordings in Now Playing so I figured I'd just do a C&DE just to start it over from scratch. However I started that process 2 hours ago and it'a still on that screen. Anything I can do? I plan on leaving it going over night, but at this point I don't have high hopes. So I'm hoping one of you might have a suggestion for me to try in the morning.
Before plugging it in I opened it up to clean out the dust and I checked the capacitors on the power supply. None of them looked even slightly bulged.
