Green Screen

My V6 box is displaying the green screen and I am unable to resolve this issue. I see from a number of posts this only fix is a replacement box but I unable to make contact with anyone to arrange for this to happen. Please can someone contact me / arrange for a replacement set top box.

Re: Green Screen

If, by green screen, you mean the "DVR has detected an error" message, then you're correct to believe this will end with your box being replaced.

Ordinarily, there's 2 ways to report faults, depending how urgent they are and how quickly you want a response:

1: Call in - 150 (from a VM phone) or 0345 4541111 (from another phone) and choose the "I have a fault" options

2: Wait on here for VM staff to respond, this can take a couple of days.

Out of interest, what's the issue you're having with calling in?

Re: Green Screen

I have called 150 from my Virgin Media phone but only get taken through the automated instructions. I just need to talk to someone to arrange for a replacement set top box.

Re: Green Screen

Ah-ha, that old favourite. The joys of VM's CS-IVR!

Once you've chosen the options for "I have a fault with my TV service", don't press any more buttons. The system will offer you to press an option for a link, and press an option to go online, don't press anything and just wait on the line.

The faults queue usually beckons.
