Good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist you with your query today.
If its a hardware issue you can go out and buy replacement hard disks, please give me a short while to lookup your HDR spec
Looking at the fault you have where your not getting the blue light on at all, I think its unlikely to be a hard disk fault.
Does it show any sign of life at all, can you connect to it from your TV?
With this model it should still let you connect to it from the TV even with a hard disk fault, from what your describing it sounds more like a main board or power supply failure to me.
These type of fault really require to go into a service centre where the unit can be stripped, as you could end up buying power boards and hard disk components just through educating guessing rather than troubleshooting and testings.
If you provide me with your post code I can look up a list of our recommended engineers in your area.
TV Links is your nearest approved engineer, unfortunately they are closed over the weekend.
If you can wait until Monday morning I can call them and check when they can fit you in, and make sure they can still get parts for your model.
However should you wish to contact them directly you can do so on 01902 229695
I aim to come back to you by 11am Monday.
I can ask, they would normally charge a small inspection fee then list the cost, since it be something as simple as a lose ribbon cable, or a new control board.
No problem, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Sorry for the delay in responding.
I have phoned TV Links (01902 229695), they have advised that the parts are becoming difficult to get hold of, but offered to give a no obligation quote for free, and then its up to you if you wish to have it repaired.
My best guess is that your looking at a new main board, and the cost of repair to be around £130, however it is certainly worth taking it in, as it could simply be a lose cable on the main board.
