- Dead Humax
I have a 3 year old Humax 9200T PVR that doesn’t want to work – it starts then freezes after 10 secs or so – I’ve done the usual reboot etc…..
Anyone else experienced similar? Is it a new box?
I can’t live without my Humax – the grief my daughter is giving because she can’t pause the TV!!!!! 😀 😀

I’ve had my Topfield go the same way. It’s either a hard disk issue or the PSU is not giving a decent 5v signal due to some capacitors failing over time. I know a Toppy isn’t a Humax but it could well be disk related. Is there any clicking or unusual sounds coming from the box on startup?Posted 9 years ago
I can’t see it’s cables and the TV works fine through a normal freeview box, so I’m assuming it’s the Humax failing on early start operation. No noises at all, just stops and wonm’t respond to any buttons on the front – even the standby – have to use the switrch on the back!
Will go see Humax forum (didn’t realise there was one).

Arse – wish I had seen that… mine did the exact same thing you are describing a couple of months back – decided to replace it with a Sony hard disk/dvd recorder. Not a bad choice mind, but I did loose the second tuner option.
Kind of thinking of buying a second telly sometime anyway, so will follow the instructions and fire the Humax into that probably.Posted 9 years ago
