M1000 DEAD

Sat Jan 18, 2014 6:34 pm

I have had this M1000 for a long long time. Today I went use it the display on the front is gone. No time and date display. I unplugged it and nothing on display to show it was rebooting. I checked the power supply and seems still in good condition. I put new batteries in the remote and hit the power button and still nothing. Any ideas? I know it is older and old but I still enjoy using it from time to time and would love to still use it.

I have an M500, so I'm extrapolating:

1) My M500 is warm to the touch from internal power usage even when off. If yours is at room temperature, it or the power supply is dead.

2) Do you have a voltmeter to measure voltage out of power supply? If every function is dead, it's the likely suspect.

3) My M500 came with a simple browser app that lets me (mostly) control it from my computer. If you have that, does it respond to commands from that page

If it is the power supply, you can replace with any wall wart with the same voltage and at least the rated current. If it's the unit, you're probably SOL.

Please note that you really need to test the supply output under load. Very often the SB supplies read fine unloaded but fail once the load is applied.
The voltages of the M1000 and M1001 supplies are different. Make sure you really have a M1000 as many M1001 were labelled as M1000's.
Check the back of the device to be sure. M1000's are 9 volt while M1001's are 5v. If you end up needing a replacement, make sure it can deliver at least 1.5amp.
