V+ HD Box - Noise

My V+ HD box upstairs, its really noisy.  Its like you can hear the hard drive making so much noise, fans etc.

The box is really sluggish and un-responsive.

Does anyone know if this can be replaced???

Re: V+ HD Box - Noise

The cooling fans can get noisy if they get clogged. If this is the main issue, run a vacuum cleaner around the outlet & it may clear the issue. If not then call faults. Sluggish responses can be caused by signal issues as well as box issues.

Re: V+ HD Box - Noise

Hi pudsuk,

 

Thanks for your post and I'm sorry to hear the V+ HD box is really noisy.

 

I can see nodrogd has already offered some advice around this which is greatly appreciated. Did you manage to give the vents a little clean as suggested and has the noise improved? I would have had a quick check over the box for you but I'm having some difficulties locating your account details. If you're still having trouble I can certainly take a further look at this for you, just let me know.

 

Regards
