I've turned my TV on after getting home.from work and the box is frozen on the welcome screen. I've tried turning on / off , unplugging for 30 secs but still stays stuck on that screen. Amber light on box won't go off if pressed only when powered down but return when powered back up. Annoying as this is my 1st week with virgin after switching to them. Box has worked fine since install last week
Thanks for using the forums to get this issue looked into and welcome to the Virgin Media family 🙂 I am sorry you've got this issue with your TV box at the moment! I'll be more than happy to help get it sorted for you.
I understand the box is stuck on the Welcome Screen and you've already tried to reboot it. It's also got an orange light which indicates a problem with the equipment.
I've tried to have a look at the box specs on my side (I should still be able to view it even if it's stuck on the welcome screen) but it seems it's unreachable. Could you turn the box on and let us know when you've done this please?
Thanks for coming back to me, I was able to see the specs and also go through some diagnostic steps in order to see what needs to be done for you.
We will need to send out an engineer to get it fixed 🙂 I'll send you a PM now so we can get it sorted for you.
