M400PX not booting. Is there any hope?

Sun Jun 24, 2012 2:26 am

Greetings all.
I have a M400PX Pinacle Home music unit. It has served me fantastically for the past few years playing all my music from my PC via FireFly.
The unit didn't connect to Firefly yesterday so I did a factory reset. It started fine and I re-entered my network and passwords etc.
On re-boot it will not start.
The screen now shows:
Home Music.

It will not go any further. Tried rebooting many times. Have left it off for hours without power still only shows the above screen when re-started.
So as my title says:
Is there any hope?

Can I force software in via the cf card?

My last option is to buy a 2nd hand unit off fleebay.
Or do the new Roku LT or Roku XS stream music ??
I don't currently have a HDMI enabled TV so the picture options are useless to me at present.

It is most likely you have a failing power supply unit, the bit that plugs into the wall socket. This can be easily replaced, see viewtopic.php?f=1&t=31605 for details of which PSU to buy. The M400 uses the same PSU as the M1001.
R1000, M400, M1001
