    Plugged the power, the three input leds are flashing continuously without stopping, no picture on screen.
    I’ve had it only for 2 weeks. RIP.

    Mail in and we’ll sort you a warranty replacement.

    No can do Matt, I have tinkered with my RT2x by replacing the input resistors to comply with the datasheet thus voiding the warranty, though it was not the cause of death.
    The cause of death was probably a surge as both small 3.3v regulators on board are blown and the crystal oscillator is also non responsive.
    Very unfortunate.

    I have ordered some 28.636MHz crystal oscillators and 3.3v power regulators to try to revive it, hope it goes well.

    EDIT:
    There is no voltage on the oscillator pins so I assume the ADV7280 is dead.
    When the 3.3v regulator popped it was outputting 5v to the ADV7280 which in turn killed it too.
