Re: How do I fix an error 7400

Hi Jimbob72,

That error message usually means the equipment hasn't been activated yet. have you followed the advice on this page? error-codes/7400 

 

You could try calling the automated activation line on  0800 953 9500 to activate the box. You will need the box serial number, and your account number and area code.

You could also try contacting  New accounts and Set Up for them to complete the setup and activation. That would be options 1,1,1 and 4 if dialling 150 from a Virgin landline , or options 1,1,2 and 4  if dialling 0345 4541111 from any other phone. Sometimes the activations don't  go through properly and if for any reason they can't activate the box they can arrange an engineer visit.

You could also try the following :- VM have recently started pre-activating their equipment, and the box should call "home" and be activated within 30 minutes, however sometimes this fails and the advice is to sign into Service status at the top of this page and run a test against the equipment you are installing. By doing this VM will be able to reboot the box or put you in touch with the right team.
