M2000 dead

Sun Jan 31, 2010 6:19 am

Hi all,

I came down the other morning, the electric was off, and I found out that something had tripped one set of the electric sockets. Flipped the fuse - but it seems that something had happened to fry my m2000 - or perhaps it was the m2000.....

Anyway - the result is that my m2000 is no longer live - and it's either the power supply or the unit. How can I test, I've tried with a multimeter - but the hole in the end of the power supply is too small for the probe to get inside. I could of course buy another power supply to test - any ideas where I can get one?

Thanks.

Contact form member g0pkh (Peter) and he will be able to help. Peter and I work work very close together on the SoundBridge line and have had great luch and results.

He can perhaps walk you threw testing the wall-wart (Wall Power Adaptor) out first and go from there. It may be as simple as the 24v wall-wart being bad. If it's not the wall-wart, he can service the unit and chanced are very, very high that he can get it going for you (unless the display is burned up, whiich I doubt).

The M2000 is far to beautiful and expensive not to get working, so please contact him and if you don't want to fix it, still contact him becasue I am sure he would buy the unit off you for the display.

You can send Peter a PM here

Hi - thank you jdc1947 and Burkhardi. I ordered the power supply from Maplins - got it today - and it works!!! Many thanks jdc1947 and if I have bigger issues (let's hope not), I'll take you up on your offer Burkhardi. Thanks once again.

Really sorry to trawl up sucha na old thread but...

I have an M2000 that has hardly been used and just stored in it's box. It doesn't power up now. I've trid a diferen power suply (maplin's L50BL) but nothing. The only sign of life is one solitary LED near the network plug. The WLAN card (roku supplied) shows no lights and I get no link when using physical network connections. It won't even go into safe mode

I'm guessing this unit is dead now?

It's likely you can resurrect it with some minor repair work. Depending on where you are at, several people offer repair services. Otherwise, more than one person would be willing to purchase it as is.

Thanks for the reply Frank,

I'd really like to get it working as I purchased it from the US years ago when they first came out then moved around so much I never really had a chance to use it much.

I've had a look around the forum but can't see any links to repair places/people. Could you point me in the right direction.

I'm in the UK if that helps :)
