Yes this indicates a failed I/R received on the DVR. It is quite difficult to replace, nigh impossible if you have never done repairs like this before.

Have you done electronic repairs like this before, including soldering and removing circuits? Please let me know and I can help you find the part, otherwise I would suggest you either get it repaired by Humax which may be expensive, or just replace the DVR. Unless it's under warranty of course, then we want to claim it under warranty...

Oh no, that's not good. I would actually unplug it again, let it sit a few minutes (at least 3) and try plugging it in again. Report back and let me know, does it still get stuck on that intro screen?

Let me know and we will keep going.

the problem is from your the DVD's main board. The cause of the problem is high electricity voltage or irregular power supply that passed through the power board into the main board. This is why it is advise able to always use step down for DVD players because any high/excess current can damage the main board inside the player.

The DVD main board carries the whole function of the unit, and anything that happens to the board, will affect all other functions on the of the player. Its just like a motherboard.

I would advice you take it to a technician to ascertain the main fault and get it fixed.

Good luck.
