Advertisements My TiVo Premiere won't start up. When it is plugged in, the green LED comes on, the fan starts, and it puts a "Welcome! Starting Up ... " screen on the TV. After a while the amber LED flashes several times, and then stops flashing. Then the TV screen goes dark and the TV indicates it is searching for a signal. The fan in the TiVo then stops ... and that's it. Nothing further happens. The green LED, however, remains lit. This is after the Premiere was disconnected for a week or so pending repairs to and repainting of a water-damaged wall in my living room. When we were reassembling the TV and associated entertainment gear, the external My DVR Expander got dropped. I have tried powering on the Premiere with it disconnected, but the results are the same. I suspect the internal drive may have gone bad. The power supply seems to be OK, as is the fan. Then again, I find it strange that a week or so of not being powered on would trigger a hard drive failure the next time the Premiere is plugged in??? Can anyone offer any suggestions? They will be much appreciated ... Edit: My real question is, how can I be sure it's the hard drive without actually replacing the drive?
