Dead Topfield TRF2400 ?
« on: August 12, 2011, 12:02:21 AM »
Hi all.

my toppy has failed to record a few things over the last few days.
i have come home to find it turned itself off. it has (or had) the recordings listed
in the recorded programs section. when i tried to play them, it would immediately say playback stopped.

now it has no access to the hdd, i keep getting "your hard drive is not ready"
also, the recordings menu is now greyed out, and the home entertainment menu is greyed out.
the tuner still works, the menus still work. i think it sounds like a failed HDD.

are these things easy to replace ?
can i buy a 1tb drive and stick it in tomorrow ? the unit is still under warranty (only bought it a few months ago)
but I'd prefer the quick fix rather that send it back to be replaced and be without a recorder for weeks
while it's being fixed.

thanks in advance for any info.

Jason.

This sounds like a Toppy problem. Best to head over to the itopfield forum for some help.

it was a failed hdd.

the trf2400 was only 5 months old too. not best impressed.
my old mp 5000's are still running fine after more than 5 years.

the trf2400 has been repaired and is working again. hopefully for more than 5 months this time !
