DVR Green Screen

I’ve been trying for days to get hold of someone from Virgin because my TV is displaying a green screen with a message saying the ‘DVR has detected a serious problem’ 

does anyone know a number for me to contact? 150 is directing me to the website which isn’t helping

Re: DVR Green Screen

Hi Mwarburton,

Sorry to see that you have the green screen of death and will need a box replacement.

It's not the words you want to hear, but the quickest method is using the phone as you have been doing unfortunately.

That's 150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 2 (Faultsbut best to call at 8am to avoid call queues or around tea time.

When calling Faults you will get the automated response asking you to press 1 etc, ignore the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and resolve the problem.

Forum Staff may pick this up for you, but it may take a couple of days.

In the meantime you could download the TV Go app to watch the majority of the channels, or the web app to use with a PC/laptop tvgo-tvcontrol apps

Once you've called 150, choose the options for "I have a fault with my TV service" - should be two buttons.

Don't press anything else - just wait. Ignore the prompts for "get a link", "do it yourself" and just wait. You should go into the queue for a faults agent.

I tried this earlier today and got through in under 5 minutes.

Re: DVR Green Screen

Hi Mwarburton, 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the forums. It's great having you on board with us in the Community. 

I'm sorry to hear that you are having an issue with a green screen when trying to load your box. As mentioned above, we will need to organise a replacement box for you. The quickest way is to get an engineer out with a replacement. 

I just need to confirm the address to ensure we are booking the visit on the correct account. 


I have sent you a private message regarding this. Just click on the little plum envelope at the top right hand side of the page to access your inbox.


Thanks,
