Hardware Issue with ZMD-DX-SIN8 (SIL8)


I have had a Zmodo ZMD-DX-SIN8 (SIL8) for a couple of years now, and I was wondering if you guys could give me some advice on what could be going on. One of the channels went out (channel 7), and as I opened the unit to follow the instructions on a document to reset the cables in similar situations, I discovered this dark blob shown in the picture below. I also noticed the HDMI port is not working anymore. Is this DVR on its way out?



That blob is GLUE.

It’s used during manufacturing.
