The fan is running, but no green light...

We had a minor storm here today. My DirecTivo is no longer functioning. The fan will run, but there is no green light, no hard drive spin.

Is this a power supply issue? Motherboard issue? I'll crack the case and try to re-seat the cables. If that doesn't work, what is my next step?

Edit: It was connected to a surge protector.

You could have lost the 5V supply in the power supply. Not fun... If you have or can borrow a voltmeter, you could test the voltages in one of the drive cables - there's ground, +5 and +12.

This sort of thing is why I urge everyone to put their TiVo on a UPS.

Thanks for the help. I played with the cables, and now it's working again. Not quite sure what happened.

A UPS is on my 'to buy' list now!
