Can anyone help please?
When I turn on my 5800 I get a window come up saying "WARNING. ALL DATA WILL BE LOST! Proceed with Format?" Then either OK or CANCEL. I've always cancelled! But then I cannot access the recordings archive. I can still programme for record but don't know if anything is actually recording.

Have the PSU capacitors ever been replaced? If not, they need to be now. Leave it unplugged from the mains until the PSU is repaired.

See: http://forum.toppy.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=19103

The disk has probably been corrupted by a failing power supply. Do not say Yes to a reformat, the corruption can probably be fixed by connecting the disk to a PC running TopfHDRW.

Turbosat repaired the 5800 in August 2010 - "fully re work psu" plus they loaded 5.13.65N firmware.
Unfortunately I have no knowledge of electronics. Is there someone [near Guildford] prepared to look at it, or is it better to take it back to Turbosat?

Yes, very near. Andy is at Fleet and is good at it.

Turbosat only did the minimum they could get away with - now you need to change all of the capacitors.

Best thing to do is to PM andyfras, who did mine a while ago. Search for a user called andyfras and click on the PM button.
