HDR 2000T stopped working


My HDR 2000T box has stopped working altogether. Everything is plugged in but there is no red or blue light on the front of the box. Any advice gratefully received!


The Dumb One
Not unless you have a voltmeter.
If you do, is the output from the power adaptor OK?

1. Buy a voltmeter. They are dirt cheap from places like CPC and can be worth their weight in gold.
Unfortunately, you will get deluged with catalogues, but I suppose it keeps the post office going.

2. Take it to someone who can measure it.

3. Buy a new power supply, if you can, in the hope it's that.

4. Give up.

Can't think of any other options.

Absent some fault finding capacity, yourself or others, then for self help a replacement power adaptor is about the only option. You might be able to find one on ebay. But you'll need to be prepared to write off that cost if that isn't the problem.

Get a multimeter too, while you're at it. Household essential.
I don't like recommending that unless the potential user is likely to know both how to use it and use it safely. If the OP does then it's sometimes a useful tool, if not don't bother.

Black Hole

May contain traces of nut
A medical friend was visiting and spotted my multimeter on the sideboard. "What's that?" he asked. "The electronics engineer's equivalent of your stethoscope, thermometer, and sphygmomanometer" I replied.
