Question about Mustek PVR-A1 32 MB Digital Media Player
My Mustek PVR-A1 doesn't work anymore. When I power on the device, all I get is a screen full of various assorted colored pixels. My Windows XP won't recognize the PVR-A1, and I have to remove the battery to turn it off. Is there a fix for this, or a reset option? Please advise Best regards, Robin ...

yeah, man, i did the same. cracked the glass, without damage to the screen, and then just made one myself, cutting it out from a cd-box and then glued it on :)

It is real easy to change the battery, I have done mine a few months ago
if you remove the screws from the back top and bottom (4) and remove the case
next remove the 2 small rubber strips from each side of the hard drive, then very carefully pull the connecting ribbon off the hard drive, this can be tight so gently prise apart with a screw driver,
once the hard drive is removed you will see some earthing straps just make a note of where these are located as you will need to put them back in the right place, they simply touch the hard drive,
now you shoud see the battery (very thin in a blue plastic case) you might want to remove the rubber proctective stuff just to make it a bit easier there is a simple pull/push connector
just unplug it and replace with new battery and reverse the procedure.
Dont panic if the unit fails to switch back on as mine did when i re assembled it
it was just one of those earth straps in the wrong place.
I hope this helps,
P.S I changed the battery on a unit I bought on ebay and i had nothing to loose
if you are unsure do not attemp the repair.

This happened to me too. Just unscrew the 4 screws, lift out the hard drive and glue it back down to where it was (2 little pegs will fit into two little holes on the circuit board. You can touch the contacts with a thin tipped soldering iron if you want to but you probably don't need to.Then close it up. That worked for me!
