Humax hdd not recognised


New Member
Hi all, new to this site , After searching a lot of forums about humax 1000s not reading the HDD I tried most of the suggestions and none worked for me
So as a last resort before throwing the machine out I tried one more thing that no one suggested, that is disconnect the HDD leads from the motherboard
Then go to settings do an update, then factory reset, after that reconnect the HDD leads (the power lead last) then go to settings - storage, and hopefully
The HDD will be recognized. It worked for me. Hope this helps you.

Sorry this didn’t work
I will try anything else
Have tried nearly everything I think humax just want me to buy a new one ?
But when you look at the amount of boxes with the same fault
There has to be a major issue
