Hello and Welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'll assist you today. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Can you please get me the model number off of DVR in question?
OK, take your time.
OK - Have you tried to unplug TV and DVR box power cords from wall outlet for 10 minutes to reset, replug back in and check?If not yet, can you try it now and reply back with the result?
OK, try it and reply back with the result.
Also check the connection cables between DVR and TV to make sure all are tight and plugged securely.
OK, what happens if you press numeric key on remote to select a camera OR press menu, does the menu screen show up?
This is odd, let me forward this question to other experts to have a look and hopefully you will get response soon.
I'm opting out to repost the question.
Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...Initially, have you tried unplugging the DVR for an extended period of time?
And then try again but using a different TV or monitor? ...try both VGA and VIDEO OUT connections?
I was hoping to simulate a "soft reset" hence the "...unplugging the DVR for an extended period of time..." Can you try this please?
All others would point to a likely internal hardware issue.
And yes please on the picture(s). Click HERE.
For some reason, no picture was posted. Please try again, click HERE.
Have you tried with the NET (LAN) cable (temporarily) disconnected ?
Still, that the described symptom of "...just saying loadin..." persist even with "...unplugged...over night...", then it would confirm an internal hardware issue. The system is unable to complete its boot process.
Likely yes; sorry.
Would you be comfortable opening the DVR? There is another hardware test that can be done.
I understand; please try with the NET cable disconnected. There is a possibility that it won't go through the 'booting process' if it can't detect good/full LAN connection. Temporarily disconnecting would serve as a test by process of elimination.
As posted earlier, a likely internal hardware issue. In most instances, this would be a failed HDD (hard disk drive) similar to the image shown HERE. This HDD (silvery block) can be removed and tested by most computer shops/stores. More importantly, if faulty, it can be independently replaced.
If the HDD tests good or even if replacement would not be corrective, then the fault would be with the circuitry. This then would be the deciding factor to replace the whole DVR.
I realize that the above information may perhaps be not what was expected. Unfortunately, there is no quick-n-easy fix and neither is there a workaround; sorry for having to be the bearer of bad news.
Good luck and thank you too for the opportunity to be able to share the information.
