Freesat Sky+ Box on standby

  geoff47 22:57 PM 07 Sep 11

Hope it is not an old chestnut question, I have searched for solutions but they were appertaining to Sky plus subscribers, I have opted to go for Freesat and there has been no problems until yesterday when the box just will not turn on from standby. I have switched off mains, held standby and the two sideways arrows on the box while reconnecting the electric supply.

Nothing worked.

Any useful suggestions ? Many thanks in advance

My Freesat box has done this a couple of times over the last year. With mine, I disconnect from the mains and leave for about 30 minutes (to allow all capacitors to drain fully) and reconnect. This seems to work for me.

I'm sorry I can't be of any more help.

Thats OK thanks for the reply. I have tried everything,nothing has worked, so a dug an old digibox out of the back of the garage and that one works.
