Hi there and welcome

Can you remove the power to the nit.

Then hold the power button for 60 seconds then release.

Then reconnect the power and tell me if it now functions correctly please.

Did it switch off?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can not power off using power button, only if you shut off at accessories switch
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.


It is the internal memory that has faulted and the firmware is not running correctly anymore

I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the unit to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.

I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the page, then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
