Have you read this?

(holding down #4 channel status and #4 channel edit at same time and then trying to boot?)

Not sure if it would fix but maybe it'd let you get more insight into the problem. Good luck.

went back after an hour, turned on the machine and it booted. not sure if it's the hard drive being fragmented or what because you can turn the unit on without the hard drive caddy installed if i remember correct. Anyways it's working, i am backing up all my projects with the latest project files and will reformat the hard drive. thank you guys for taking an interest and providing some insight. I need a backup machine.
cheers
