It's a bit tricky to advise when "everything" has been attempted, but does that include the following? No guarantees but if this fails, then the only other can be done is to call faults and report your failed box.

Turn off the V6 at switch; then on the V6 box hold down both the power button and the +button at the same time. Then turn on the V6 again whilst keeping hold of those buttons for a further 30 seconds. The box should reboot, the power button will turn blue, and it should reset and boot up normally

Hi there @RockerSBM 

Thank you so much for your post and welcome back to the community forums, it's great to have you here. 

I am so sorry that you have faced this issue with your service and thank you again for postig.

Can I ask if you are able to turn the box on that is facing the issue and let us know when it is powered on so we can take a look on our side?
