Zmodo Security DVR ZMD-DR-SFN6 frozen on spash screen
But, when you turn it on, it goes to the Zmodo splash and instead of a message a the bottom that it is 'loading', it just sits there.
I can feel the hard drive spin for about a minute and then it seems to go idle. None of the buttons on the front to get into the menu work. I took the hard drive out and tested it with Seatools -- and it passed even though my computer can't see any data on it and says it is not formatted. I'm sure it's formatted to PAL or something that Windows won't see.
There is a pretty small 'motherboard' inside the device. I don't see any bulged caps and we tried changing out the motherboard battery -- as it is the same as a computer motherboard. No dice.
It has a SATA hard drive and the cable is supple -- haven't tried replacing that, but it's an option. Any ideas?
