Panasonic DMR-HWT250 dead with flashing green power light


Novice Member

Does anyone know what a slow flashing green power light means on a Panasonic DMR-HWT250? There's no display, it does recognise the remote but doesn't do anything at all, the light has been flashing for over a day now but no mention of what it means in the manual, it's as though it's doing some kind of disk check maybe?

a quick search on the web “panasonic dmr flashing green light” indicates that the number of flashes between pauses gives the nature of the fault. It looks likely to be a hardware failure.

I'm starting to think it is some sort of hardware failure but with mine there are no pauses between the flashes it's just continuous slow flashes. I imagine the most likely fault is a disk failure but have no idea if it's possible to stick a new one in.
