I recently got hold of an RS MEdia from ebay, that was listed as "makes a clicking noise, possible OS wiped".
Sure enough, on poweron, the eyes go solid red, the LCD is plain white, and for a few seconds there is a 'p p p p p p" sound from the speaker, then it appears to power down, then about 5 seconds later there's a short burst of 'speech' (sounds more like a burp/gulp LOL !)
I tried the couple of scripts I found on here from nocturnal on an SD card but no joy (I suspect it's not booting far enough to be running them).
Anyone got any ideas? I'm thinking I'll need to figure out how to make and fit the serial hack to have any chance of resurrecting it, any suggestions much appreciated. (I've got a RSV2 currently in bits for the last 6 months as I've mixed the screws up , oooops!)
Here's a short video if it being switched on..
