pastors in harddrive arrived, swapped out the hard drive and soldered out the old capacitor and soldeted in a new one, and the box works amazingly!

If anyone has one of these boxes and is not comfortable doing this, maybe we can arrange something or if you cover the shipping to and from plus a little bit extra then I would be happy to take care of yours for you. :)

Brian,

Please share what YOU used to replace the original capacitor such as its uF value and voltage rating. Is it an Electrolytic capacitor and if so, is it polarized or non-polorized? If you're comfortable telling us/recommending to us who you bought it from, that could help others, too. Thanks!

I didn't realize that you could run out of timers on this DVR. Now that I have so much space I've been telling it to record lots of stuff, and it told me I've reached a maximum number of timers. Who knew!

04/20/2020 - A little more follow up on latest repair of two CM7000PALs. A.V.E (Advanced Video Electronics) in Davenport IA got the two units repaired a week later after drop off and I got them back with a ~$84 per unit repair charge. Have had one of them back in the equipment stack working like a champ once I got them home Mar 31. Both had funky looking slightly domes c34 capacitors and I think that was the only thing that needed replacement. Hope the shop is able to keep running and not a victim of the Covid19 Economic impact syndrome that is likely to kill off some smaller businesses.

Think it's 24 timers available. Just did a quick scan of the user's manual and it does not seem to give the actual count - just mentions that there will be an "error message" when you get to the limit. Seen it quite a few times on mine :sneaky: !
