We have recently been having issues whereby we have no picture, only sound when using our virgin box. Our firestick works though. At first we thought it was the cable, changed that, then changed our TV as we read issues about the black screen of death on LG tvs. We now have a Panasonic TV and the same has just started happening. Again, changed the hdmi cable, still happening with the occasional flickering of an image. Could it be a dodgy virgin box? We have had it for four years. Thanks in advance for any help.
No picture for all of it. I can see the welcome image when we restart the system but then the picture goes again. The TV remote functions show up though e.g. volume, modes, settings but no functions on the virgin remote, so I know it isn't the TV screen.
Thanks for posting and welcome to our community 🙂
Sorry to hear you've been experiencing some issues with the picture.
I've had a look at things from our side and it does look like an engineer is needed. I'll need to confirm a few details with you first so I've popped you over a private message (purple envelope, top right hand corner)
It the virgin box packing up. The technician came out to look at ours and changed it over, said once it starts doing it there's no repairing it.
I used to keep the two boxes on top of each other too which may have been causing them to overheat and cause the issue. Advised to keep the new one separate.
Definitely contact the virgin media team through here. The technician said it was the quickest way to get hold of someone.
