    Our Roamio started restarting every 5 seconds last night. The two green lights on the front turn on for 2-3 seconds. Then they go off and the red/blue light flashes. Then it all repeats. Over and over. I left the unit unplugged overnight and no change. I checked the voltage on the power coming out of the cable into the back of the box and it’s a steady 12VDC. Any thoughts on how to resolve this? upload_2020-4-6_14-25-30.jpeg

    Possibly a bad hard drive. Do you have another drive, WD Red 5400 RPM, up to 3 TB, to try.

    I would think if it's rebooting in 5 seconds it would have to be power supply or faulty MB.

    I'd look in my closet for a power supply rated the same volts and same or higher amperage and just try it.
