Re: TV error code 7400

Follow the advice on https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-tv-error-codes/7400 , you will likely end up calling the activation number on 0800 9539500

Depending which boxes you have (TiVo or V6) remember to make sure any V6 boxes have a stable connection to the internet via your homehub during the activation process. Ethernet cable is ideal, but WiFi should be ok if the signal is strong enough.

Unfortunately box activations can't be done online.

Try using TV Faults - 150 from a VM phone, or 0345 4541111 otherwise, and follow the options for "I have a fault".

Hi DannyC006,

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
