Advertisements Hi everyone, Owned Tivo's for 15-20yrs. Never had to open one up until today! Words like Kickstart + DVRBars are new to me, but I'm willing to learn. Unit has worked fine for past 13-14yrs, now it only does "Welcome, starting up". Tivo Premiere 500GB Model TCD746500. Lifetime Access Plan. HD: WD5000AVDS 500Gb. PS: AcBel Model ST8015 ID:BW0G When I plug in the power cord: - All LEDs flash on for ~1sec. Green. Yellow. Blue. Red. Red. - Green LED stays on, all others turn off. - Fan turns on and stays on. - HD spins and makes normal HD noises for 2-3 seconds. Then HD goes silent… but I think it is still spinning? - TV displays "Welcome! Starting up…" - No sound through the AV Receiver. After several hours.... - TV still displaying "Welcome, starting up". - Green LED on Tivo still on. - The LED on the remote control flashes yellow when I push buttons on the remote, but no lights flash on the DVR. - The remote still powers the TV ON/OFF and mutes the receiver on/off. I've never used kickstart. I tried power cycling and pressing the pause key. But I never see flashing yellow LED on front of Tivo box. It keeps powering up to "Welcome, starting up". Q1: Does this sound like a dead HD or something else like PS or motherboard? Q2: What does it mean if you can't get into kickstart? Does it happen a lot? Q3: What should I try next? Q4: Does it have any re-sale value since it has the lifetime plan? Thanks!
