Are you using HDMI? If so do you have this problem using composite video output?

Very interesting. About one week ago - for absolutely no reason (unit was working fine for 5 months and I did nto change anything) I started getting exactly same behaviour. It would turn off after 5 seconds even without any cables attached, just the power.
After spending an hour on the phone with various levels of tech support, I got RMA  :( They did not seem to be familiar with this problem. Some kind of time bomb bug in firmware? I was running 1.08.

Yeah it looks like you will need a new unit. Please contact technical support Via telephone for an RMA for this issue.

Does your replacement unit work as it should now? It was a defective unit?

can't be a defective unit ,...I've been having same issue just recently......my unit will freeze up and no control on the remote will work. So I have to unplug it manually from the powercord and then sometimes the unit will not turn on.......
These 510's are junk and there has been NO firmware upgrade since when??? Last MARCH???

Unfortunaetly the same issue (the unit will turn on and quickly shut  itself down) just came back.
Dlink.ca says that DSM-510 is no longer supported starting today. Coincidence?

Cross borders to get the support...just kiddin... it seems that firmware 1.08 still has issues with losing wireless connection (after the play or randomly or totally dead with zero servers, needing restart instead of refreshing servers)...any support on that?
