What is wrong with my TV box?

My tv is not responding to the handset and the screen just says 'welcome' or 'starting up'.

The red light displays a red continuous flashing.

Re: What is wrong with my TV box?

I was led to believe that posting a report of a fault might lead to some action in getting it fixed. But no one has responded.

How does the VM Community work?

Re my Tivo box I have unplugged it for the requisite time etc and the problem remains.

What happens next on here?

Ian.

Re: What is wrong with my TV box?

Hi if members of the community can work out from the information you have provided they will respond, if not virgin staff will answer in rotation, but it may take 3 or 4 days, its helpful to give a bit more details what box you have etc, also have you tried the simple reboot and check connections route.Regards Micky

Re: What is wrong with my TV box?

Sorry to hear that you're having issues with your TV box @Nonsmokingman.

 

Please could you confirm if your box is currently plugged in and connected? The reason I'm asking this is that I cannot communicate with the box from here to check why this issue is happening. This might be part of the issue but if you could check to make sure that your box is connected, we can then take it from there to get your issue resolved.

 

Regards

Steven_L

Yes it is connected. There is a light so there is power.

Re: What is wrong with my TV box?

Can I ask how everything is at the moment or if you have spoken with the team? 

 

Cheers.

Re: What is wrong with my TV box?

I rang Virgin Media and was connected to an engineer who arranged for someone to call round and check my box. A new one was fitted and so I am 'back in business'. Thanks guys.
