Need help clearing S102 error. Been trying all afternoon

Between being kept on hold practically the whole afternoon and literally being cut off now, we are trying to activate our 3rd box for my father in law, so an oap can have tv in his room. we’ve been informed the extra service is live, the box is all connected up but just stuck in a loop giving error code S102, apparently it just needs a technician to talk to us to send the signal to the box. Can anyone please help?

Hi Colinrwi,

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 TV box you are installing. By doing this we’ll be able to reboot the box or put you in touch with the right team.

The old method was to reboot the V6, and if the channels are still greyed out then you need to phone to get your box activated. 0800 953 9500.

You will need the box serial number, and your account and area number.

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

The lines open at 8am and are least busy then.
