Re: Stuck on welcome screen

The box is trying to download a firmware update. If it is still doing this after several hours, call faults & report it.

Re: Stuck on welcome screen

Is it just the customer service number I call or is there another one? I'm on hold at the moment and have been for half an hour so far 😔

Re: Stuck on welcome screen

Hi Jo26,

The number to call is  150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, options 1,1 and 2 (Faultsbut best to call at 8am to avoid call queues

When calling Faults you will go through a series of questions/tests, if that doesn't resolve the problem then call back around 10 minutes later and an agent should pick the phone up.

You could also try the text messaging service. Just send  a text with a description of TV Faults to 07533 051809. Your message will go into a queue and a representative will respond to you as soon as possible. It may take a few days.
