Old Thomson HD box problems

I have had the PSU upgraded on this box, everything worked fine for a couple of weeks and now the picture freezers / judders and I get a screeching noise from the box as though something is slipping.This is only from programs that have been recorded. Can anyone tell me if this box can be repaired or am I wasting my money.Any info would be much appreciated.
 
The screeching sound would seem to be a failing HDD.

Stand the Digibox on its end. If the screeching is from the Hard Drive bearings, the noise might stop and give you normal operation for a while. Obviously your could replace the HDD but you have to decide whether it's worth the expense and trouble. If the HDD is faulty, you might get a used one from Digifix or off -eBay- at low cost.
