So I got an HDHR3-US (dual) from eBay a while back that wouldn’t turn on and I figured it was dead. I got my money back, but the shipper assumed it was likely dead too as they didn’t appear to test it before selling. But the power supply seemed to be the issue as no lights would come on.
I don’t have any power supplies with the same voltage/amps etc at the moment, but I do have plenty of 5v 1a (what Silicondust calls for) usb bricks around from cell phones. My only problem is I don’t have more than one usb-to-2.2mm power cables. I found one that was used in an antenna amplifier but I’m not sure the flimsy cord is good enough or if the HDHR is just overheating or something. The lights stay on for a few minutes cycling from green to red and blink back and forth between those colors and then all lights go off after a few minutes. This is leading me to believe the device is overheating/crashing or the power cable I’m using isn’t good enough.
Anyways. Does anyone know if a usb power brick can indeed power a hdhr3-us?
