    My Slingbox pro hd turns on then powers off after a little while

    hducasse

      I have a slingbox pro hd and if I plug the power in, the power and network lights turn on.  I get the red n of lights on the front and then after a little while all of the lights turn off.  Does anyone know what this means?

          DO NOT keep trying to fix it.  It's a known issue related to  the Slingbox itself, a defective power supply, or a recent firmware  update, depending on which thread you read.

           

          The same thing happened to me this evening, I  unplugged/replugged a few times and all of a sudden, SMOKE started  pouring out of the Pro-HD.  So I've currently been on HOLD FOR 56  MINUTES with Sling support trying to get an answer.

           

          Here's the thread that clued me in that it's not just me:  https://community.sling.com/message/66363

           

           

          Hopefully  sometime soon tonight I will get a human being on the phone who can  help me.....I have another Slingbox Pro-HD in a remote location that I  can't connect to also.  I hope that one hasn't set anything on FIRE.
