Blank Screen after E8E Splash Screen
« on: November 06, 2016, 09:34:50 pm »
Hi Guys
Hope you can help me.
I've had my Mede8er 500X for probably 5 years and never had any problems until recently.
Suddenly my Mede8er does not want to start up properly anymore.
It gets to the E8E splash screen and after that it goes blank.
I've already re-installed the Firmware and Bootloader using the standard guideline but it has not resolved the problem. The installation process works fine but then after all is done I still get a blank screen.  :-[
I first re-installed the bootloader "0017L_bootloader_patch".
I then installed firmware version MED500X_V4.0.5 and it still didn't work. I then tried installing firware MED500X_V4.0.6 and still no luck.
I tested the internal HDD and it works perfectly. There is no data lost and my PC picks it up when plugged in. The only thing I have not tried yet is to see if it works without the internal HDD.
Is my Mede8er broken or is the problem fixable? Please help!
Thanks

Try connecting using coax composite (yellow). The edid file may may be corrupted. Getting it to run via composite usuallys clears out the file.

Did it boot using analog at all?
