M1001 cannot connect to network

Sun Oct 11, 2009 10:05 am

I have not used my M1001 for a few weeks but tonight I have found although it sees the network, it will not connect to it. I have two Pinnacle Soundbridge radios happily connected.

Any ideas?

It could be that the power supply is dying... A relatively frequent occurrence I am sorry to say. If you can find an alternative 5 volt regulated supply rated at at least 1.5 to 2 amps, it may be worth trying (connection must be centre contact positive).

Did you try powering off and on your Soundbridges? (I mean actuallyl pulling the power plug out.)

Tried that and let it unplugged overnight.

I plugged it back in and it found the network - but didn't load any stations.

Re-set it and it lost the network again.

Are we talking about an external power supply? Can any of you good people on these forums in the UK repair it as I don't feel like sending it back to Roku.

pm me if you can thanks

Yes, it's that box you plug into the wall socket :roll:

You don't repair external PSUs, you buy a replacement. In the Uk, the recommended replacement is from Maplin part no. L45BL (5v, 4A) http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=48484. See thread http://forums.rokulabs.com/viewtopic.php?t=21709 for important advice about making sure you get the correct straight connector type.
