Green Screen of Death
Apr 9, 2006 at 9:16:12 PM | #1
My HUMAX Series 2 80 hour DVR/DVD was replaced when the original unit failed (after playing a DVD). The replacement unit (a reconditioned model) is now on the fritz with occassional GSOD during regular TV and no capability to play DVDs. If we put a DVD in, the screen goes into a matix of small boxes (mostly green) with static on the audio.
Does this sound familiar to anyone, and if so, how do I recover? The wife is getting very frustrated and the husband needs help...soon.

Sounds like you may have received a defective unit.
I would check the receptacle for proper amperage/voltage and grounding just to make sure there is not a problem with the power going to the unit that is causing them to fail.
