Tv box won’t switch on

My tv box will not switch on. I have run all the checks and the website implied I need a new box. I can’t get hold of Virgin to order one. Can you help please?

Call Customer Services on 0345 454 1111/150 if you have a VM landline or wait a day or two for a VM staff member to get to your post.

Hi @sheila_w 

Have you checked the rocker switch on the back hasn't been turned off?

I also suggest check that you are using the correct HDMI port using the source button on your TV remote, and also try a different HDMI cable.

Please reply letting us know if this helps, and also confirm which box you have so the post can be moved to the correct forum.

I’ve switched it off and on at the back. There is no light on the box at all. There is a light on the adapter so there is current from the wall socket.

Re: Tv box won’t switch on

Hi @sheila_w 

 You should call  150 from a Virgin landline, or 0345 454 1111, option 2 (Faultsbut best to call between 8am and 10am to avoid call queues, or late afternoon around tea time

When calling Faults you will get the automated response asking you to press 1 for the link to online support etc.

Ignore all the options and don't press any buttons then you should be placed into a queue and an agent should pick up the phone and resolve the problem.

You haven't yet  confirmed which box you have, if you do so we can move your post to the correct forum.

Doing that means a member of VM Staff may pick up your issue quicker and help you (in a day or two) rather than leaving it in the broadband section where it may take 3 or 4 days.
