Hello Geoff,

The programme records for the full length (plus a margin) but stops on playback. e.g. a 30 min programme, stops after 8 mins, repeatedly at exactly the same point in the playback. It will start playing if I ask it to play from a few % after the time the payback stopped. I deleted these, but will try another recording.

I'll copy to my Win7 laptop via Antares.

Thank you Geoff.

How long does Mystuff say the file is i.e. did the recording stop prematurely or is it the playback stopping?

You could check the recording by copying it to your pc with Antares and playing it there. I think W10 will play it directly though you might be prompted to install a codec. If you can't play it on the PC, install VLC and play it through that.

I don't have any other ideas - it is not a normal fault (assuming the capacitors are all ok)

Geoff

Suspect a hardware problem (disk and/or capacitors) see a similar post (near the end).

Sounds plausible, and I respect your greater experience.

I have a spare 1T HDD (also a 150G and 350G) in my PC; I am not sure if they are serial or parallel interfaces. IIRC the Toppy is parallel . Could I try that and reformat one of those, reinstall TAPs etc?

Thanks again Smile

The 1 TB would need an adaptor; ask andyfras if he can supply a suitable one (likely to be cheaper than getting one elsewhere). Note: not all disks / adaptors work in a toppy; search for the thread of known working disks (probably very long)

You may find the 350 GB disk will fit without an adaptor (on that basis that smaller size usually means older technology)

If you need to get an adaptor, I would go with the 1 TB

It would also be a good idea to create a new post asking if anyone has an old Toppy they want to dispose of - these are typically free or for the cost of the postage. Invaluable as a source of spare parts (disk, PSU) and/or helpful when trouble shooting a problem.

I was trying to watch a recording this afternoon, the playback would only run for a few minutes before crashing.

Out comes the laptop to run some checks, particularly FDCheck (also as recommended by Andyfras), unfortunately the taps would not run. So I powered off to give a 'clean' start.

On powering on the Toppy it blew the mains fuse. So it is now disconnected and I am wondering what to do?

I will presume to also ask Andyfras as I was asking about replacement HDD and interfaces.

Steve

To try to close this posting off:

Thanks to Geoff and Andy for their help. My Toppy is up and running OK.

I replaced the electrolytics and with Andy's help my HDD was also replaced.

The Toppy has been behaving as expected for the last couple of weeks since its return to me.
