    It could literally be anything:(

    However had a quick look through the Satcure Website and found this paragraph...

    "Panasonic D814 in power supply. If Digibox is "stuck in standby" or LEDs are flickering, disconnect one end of D814. If Digibox now works, the protection diode is faulty. "


    So the problem could be related to the PSU, but I am no expert.

    Usually the processor faulty, I believe. Very expensive to repair. Not worth it in my opinion.

    I'm sure you'll be able to find a decent later model Panny on here for £50 or so.

    Hope this helps.
