DTR-T4000 - Stuck in maintenance mode
My Youview DTR-T4000 (1TB) keeps on booting up into maintenance mode. I tried the software reset, factory reset (keep recordings) and internet recovery (keep recordings) and they all came up with "Sorry, selected option failed".
The box is long out of warranty, so I looked on here and followed a guide to remove the hard drive, connected it to a PC and found that it was completely dead (not even recognised).
The only spare 2.5' drive I have lying around is an 80GB one. I thought I'd give it a try in the youview box and see if it works before going to buy a bigger drive. I checked the drive on the PC, it passes an extended SMART test and I deleted all the partitions/data on it.
I fitted it to the youview box but still cannot get past the maintenance mode screen. I've tried all the 5 options multiple times with no luck. The software reset reboots to the youview logo but then back to the maintenance mode screen. The hardware reset fails with the "Sorry, selected option failed" error. The internet recovery downloads something (the white progress bar fills up) but then also fails on "Sorry, selected option failed".
Is the fact that its only an 80GB drive the problem? Is it worth buying a new 1TB drive and fitting it? I don't really want to buy one and find that the same problem happens.
