Hi,can anyone advise how I can get a new power cable for my HUB5 please? It had a loose connection and just cuts yet until you wiggle it again (not ideal when thermostat runs off WiFi!) . Can’t seem to manage to talk to anyone and the chat bot keeps telling me they’re no longer taking messages! I don’t want to cause unintentional damage by purchasing an unapproved power supply and potentially causing damage to the HUB. Thanks
Thanks for using the forums to get this issue with your power supply looked into, I am sorry if this has been causing some frustration. I would be more than happy to look into this for you.
We can get an engineer booked to take a look at your equipment and drop a new power supply off your you 🙂
I'll send you a PM now so we can get this started.

Curiously, I have (exactly) the same issue... (https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Networking-and-WiFi/Odd-behaviour-on-new-Hub5/m-p/5198459)
Were you also seeing references to SW updates in your modem logs prior to it dying?
If we're both seeing the same issue - others are also, I would imagine!
The engineer was very helpful - he identified a fault with the HUB5 itself that was causing the power to cut out, so not the power supply after all. I now have a new HUB.
I have managed to reconnect everything however my Virgin Media Connect app is refusing to find the new HUB, and therefore I cannot manage my devices etc. Can I have some help with that please?
Hi Katherinep15, thanks for the message.
I am glad that the engineer was able to get things resolved for you.
Can you delete the connect app and reboot the hub to see if anything changes? ^Chris,
Hey @Katherinep15, thanks for the reply on the forums.
I'm sorry to hear that the app has not recognised the hub, please try the following:
For your Apple device, you can try this: Open Settings > Tap your name > Tap iCloud > Tap Manage Settings > Tap the Connect App > Tap Delete Data.
For your Android device, you can try this: Open settings > Apps > Connect App > Storage > Clear data / Clear cache.
If you are using an Android device can you please ensure you have the following settings enabled:
Location Permissions (Settings > Apps > Virgin Media Connect > Permissions)
Nearby devices (Settings > Google devices & Sharing > Scan for nearby devices).
Let us know how it goes.
