Hi Everyone, I recently picked up a FW-1884 and as you may have read from the title all the lights are on when you power it up, also the firewire light flashes as does the stop button light. I have done extensive googling this past week but cant seem to find anything that tells me for sure what this is exactly. I'm thinking maybe from all that searching it may be the firewire chip inside the unit that is gone?. Does anyone know if those symptoms can mean anything else?. As it's the first one of these i've seen could someone also tell me what it should do when powered on? and what it should do when powered on but not connected up to a computer. So many questions I know but i'm pulling my hair out here (and there's not much of that left these days), I can see that someone is selling that firewire chip on ebay which looks a bit out of my soldering skills but maybe I could get someone to swap it for me (64 pins 1 cm in size sounds like a heat gun job). There seems to be conflicting reasons for the symptoms mine has, some say bad firmware update and some say the firewire chip. Any info anyone?
