Re: black screen but menus visable

Can you watch OnDemand programmes?

Do you get any error codes or message on the blank screen?

Did you reboot yout V6 after changing the video output?

Hi richardmead1971,

As per japitts, "Did you reboot you V6 after changing the video output?" This should clear the issue, if it didn't please try the following.

 

You can force the screen to reset and it will display in the basic  576p resolution. This will allow you to go into the V6 settings and change the video output again.

Using your remote control press Thumbs Up, Thumbs Down, 4, 8, 0, Clear

You should now be able to see the screen again, so using your remote 

Press Home  > Help & Settings >  Settings > Video Output > Video Output Format

Either go to Auto detect to run a test of your TV’s display options. It will then ask you to confirm the new display selection  or choose  Test Formats to run a quick test on the Virgin TV V6 box and follow the onscreen guides
