The first thing I'd check is the power supply (wall wart). Although your power 
LED illuminates, it's possible you are getting insufficient current. If this 
is the original power brick, and you have never replaced it, this is a very 
likely scenario.

Of course SD would have probably suggested this, if they thought it was the 
problem, still it wouldn't hurt to check it out, possibly by using a 
different brick of the same voltage.
