Remember me from last summer After six months of living with the issue... I had gotten use to the random sound, Otherwise, the unit was working great.
Today, however, while I was just sitting at the screen watching a video, there was (it sounded to me) a popping sound and the screen suddenly went black - the unit shut down - the power is dead (no lights). The plug works fine on another mini-computer. So it must have been a faulty unit after all.
Is your offer to replace it still good?
Thanks and best,
