My Swann DVR is no longer recording. I have swapped the HDD and that doesn't seem to be the problem. From what I can see online, there may be a capacitor or power cord problem. The power light still illuminates when I turn it on but no HDD light or action.

Would suit someone with electronics experience who would probably require a multimeter (and some idea about what the heck is going on!)
I am able to supply more details and pics if needed.

DVR details are: Swann DVR8-4600

Would prefer the job done this weekend.

(Apologies to previous job offers last week. I got sick after posting last time and I don't believe there's any way to contact people on here without assigning tasks?)

No offers were made on this task.

Can't access the hard drive, Chris. Hard drive light doesn't go on. I've swapped drives over and still doesn't work. Power goes to cameras because the IR is still visible.
Have u tried reformatting the new hard drive?
