    Slingbox Solo

      Power light remain solid for only 30 – 45 seconds and then blinks continuous.  Have reboot several times and have the same result.  Is my Slingbox Solo fried?

          Hi Jaccardo,

           

           

          Is my Slingbox Solo fried?

           

          Maybe.  What you described doesn't sound good.

           

          If a hard reset doesn't help, check the power supply.  Here are some related threads that include the power supply specs and where you might find another one:

          Sling sells them too for $20 bucks:

          Before you go off and pick up a new PS, give the hard reset one more try and be sure to follow the instructions precisely.

           

           

          Beyond hard reset and a new PS, you might be out of luck. No power light sounds like a hardware problem to me.  If your Solo is still under the 1-year hardware warranty you should probably give Sling a call.  If not, they can fix it out-of-warranty for a fee.  It's not cheap, but it's far less expensive than buying a new one.

           

           

          Good luck,
