  • VLC Hard Drive Replacement

    So, I've got two VLCs that have failed, both are hard drive issues. Out of Warranty. Has anyone out there tried to copy from a good VLC and repair in the field? Or, am I stuck sending these back. Hate to spend the $$$ if we don't have to.

    We have super elex's. I have never dealt with a VLC, but the VLC is basically a stand alone computer. Does not hurt to try to copy a HD from a good unit then install in VLC. Make sure you also note down the BIOS start up before doing so.

      If you copied it from a good unit it will then have the same network address as the good unit. This would cause a conflict if you had both in operation.
