Hi,

Returned from a work trip to find my SB3 (from 2007) dead. The red light in the optical port in on, but nothing else happens. I've tried changing the charger and removing the wifi card.

Is this it? Or is there anything else to try?

If not, then Raspberry Pi and SqueezeLite here I come, I guess...

Maybe try XILINX Reset:
Unplug power, press and hold down the one (1) button on the remote, plug power back in (whilst continuing to hold down the one button)

Ala this doesn't work either. :(

The only thing that's really left for you to do is try another power supply...one that's compatible of course.

Yes that I have tried already.

OK, so the question now is hot to build a Squeezelite/RaspberryPi Squeezebox replacement. Does anyone know of a good beginning guide?

I have an SB3 in similar condition but haven't had time to open it up to see if I can localise the fault

Max2play is a safe starting point - they offer ready built s/w or if you want a kit or already build Sb player see their shop for example http://shop.max2play.com/en/raspberry-pi-2-bundle-7-display.html

picoplayer is another good place for a simple player but a bitmore diy. https://sites.google.com/site/picoreplayer/home

There are plenty of threads on this forum. Here are a few:

With both options above it is possible to use the 7" inch RPI touch display too.
