    Greetings all

    So i have an old Series 2 about 6 years old, un modified and last week it started randomly rebooting every now and then, i didn't think to much off it and planned on replacing the hard drive fairly soon. But yesterday in the middle of watching a show the tivo froze. I powercycled the unit and now i can not get it to boot up at all. It never gets to a welcome screan or anything like that at all. The Left LED (normaly the green one that turns to red when you record) is flashing yellow/green at me very rapidly as soon as i plug the unit back in. The I can hear the hard drive power up and the fans moving. Any thoughts of what this could be?

    Thanks alot for your time
    -Jeff

    If the hard drive checks out ok, then it's likely the power supply. The TCD140060 models are notorious for this problem.

    Tried a new power supply, no joy at all. I have a lifetime subscription on the box, anything else i can try that you can think of?

    Thanks all
